Who is Vanessa Clark?

A resident of Lufkin, Texas, Vanessa Clark is the mother of two infants (Christian Clark and Tristan Clark) who died -- one year apart -- while sleeping in her bed.

According to Angelina County records, Clark has a history of theft and drug convictions, as well as an aggravated assault charge.

Journalists and talking heads (think Nancy Grace) are quick to point out that Vanessa Clark is an attractive, well-groomed bleach-blond who appears to pose for her mugshots.

Clark has a wide array of mugshots dating back to 1998. She smiled in the mugshot photo that took place after her arrest in 2011.

Is Vanessa Clark Guilty of Killing Her Babies?

The reality is this: Vanessa Clark has a violent past and has demonstrated reckless behavior time and time again; nevertheless, evidence must prove that Vanessa Clark killed her babies. It’s also important to note that Vanessa’s husband, Mark Clark, was present in the bed at the time of each child’s death.

At the time of Tristan Clark’s death, the king-size bed was covered in pillows and comforters, which could easily suffocate a baby. Vanessa Clark ignored CPS’ warnings after the death of her first child, Christian Clark, who died of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).

Will Vanessa Clark Face Murder Charges?

There is no law preventing parents from sleeping alongside their children, however, Vanessa Clark tested positive for high levels of Hydrocodone and Xanax. These drugs may have left her too intoxicated to care for herself or her children.

At present time, Vanessa Clark does not face any murder charges.

      I use to date Vanessa...when she was Vanessa Madden.I took her to visit her family (for ft.worth to lufkin)about 3 months after dating..her mom was on oxycotton and her stepdad was on that plus hydrocodone, not to mention her brother,who was living with his mom and hooked on meth. I caught her cheating on me. Then she stole money from my savings account. She is such a materialistic person...and vain. She had already lost custody of her very first child to her grand parents...his name is kason...she's just not mother material.....this is karma.

      Her demeanor isn't like what one would expect for someone who has just lost their child. Interesting but sad story, I watched this on the news this evening.
