Ryan Lawrence, 25, beat up his 21-month-old daughter Maddox to death with a baseball bat. Lawrence continued by setting her body on fire and tied down her remains to a cinder block and dumped it into Onondaga Creek. He reported the girl missing, and then days later he pleaded guilty to the murder of Maddox. The 21-month-old had just beaten eye cancer and had spent most of her life in hospital. He got jealous of the amount of attention she was getting and decided to get her out of the picture. According to Lawrence’s lawyer, he did it out of love and wanted to protect Maddox from cancer returning to her.
