Florida’s Department of Children and Families admitted they had the killer of ‘Baby Chance’ on their radar for years, and even took seven children from his custody before he murdered his newborn last month.

Joseph Walsh, 36, was charged yesterday with first-degree murder for the beating death of his infant son Chance in September.

Walsh and the child’s mother are also accused of leaving the slain baby to rot in their home for almost two weeks, until at last burying his corpse in a shallow grave more than 10 miles away, because they couldn’t stand the stench.

“Joseph wrapped Chance in numerous garbage bags and then placed the decomposing remains of Chance in the closet of the bedroom,” the criminal complaint against the pair states.

The two repeat-offenders and habitual drug users confessed that they disposed of their son’s remains on September 16th, fleeing Florida together about ten days later to “start a new life.”

They were both subsequently involved in a motor vehicle accident in South Carolina and, thereafter, raised the suspicion of relatives and police when they offered contradictory stories about their missing child.

Detectives said that 32-year-old Kristen Bury eventually broke down during questioning and led them to the baby’s grave. For her role in the sickening crime and cover up, she is also facing felony murder charges now.

Bury claims however she had nothing to do with the actual killing of Baby Chance and even yelled “you are going to break his f****** neck” during Walsh’s fatal assault on the infant.

The diaper-clad body of the murdered newborn was discovered at a place called Elliot Court in a state of advanced decomposition.

Representatives of Florida’s DCF revealed in a recent written statement that the victim was never a subject of any of their child abuse investigations, but that his killer was very well known to the agency.

The Department of Children and Families admitted they “had multiple past interactions with Joseph Walsh, including the removal of seven children from his custody.”
