Stephanie Goddu Age
Stephanie Goddu is 35 years old.
Stephanie Goddu charged with child endangerment
Police did not learn of the incident until Wednesday when Stephanie Goddu failed to pick up the girl from the daycare center that afternoon. Employees were unable to make contact with Goddu via telephone, so police officers called around to her home to check on her.
When they arrived they found the mom inside with her younger child – a three-month-old baby.
Cops noticed the three-month-old ‘covered in urine’ and ‘strapped to an infant carrier seat wearing extremely warm clothing and a blanket’.
According to an update posted on the Manchester Police Department’s Facebook page, Goddu was ‘incoherent and disoriented and had trouble answering questions’. The carrier was reportedly located close to a heater, causing officers to fear that the baby would overheat.
What we know so far about Stephanie Goddu
The Manchester Police Department subsequently launched an investigation into Goddu, during which they learned that her older child – the three-year-old girl – had traveled unaccompanied to the daycare center in a Lyft two days prior.
‘Both the condition of the infant and the unsupervised ride to daycare were cause for police to charge Goddu,’ the police department wrote in their Facebook update. However, when police returned to the premises last Friday to arrest Goddu she barricaded herself inside her home.
Goddu was eventually detained and taken into custody. She was charged with endangering the welfare of a child and resisting arrest.
It is unclear whether she has been released on bond and whether she has been reunited with her children.
