PITTSBURGH (AP) — A Pennsylvania man was arrested on child endangerment charges because he didn’t call 911 after the mother of his two children threatened to kill them and sent him videos of his son’s lifeless body during two hours’ worth of angry text messages, police said.

Andre Price Jr., 23, of McKeesport, was jailed without bond early Friday on two counts — one each for 17-month-old Andre III, and a 2-year-old daughter, Angel.

The McKeesport man didn’t alert authorities even though 21-year-old Christian Clark sent him videos of his son’s limp body Tuesday night amid rants about how she didn’t love the children and saying the children and Price had ruined her life. The texts indicate she was angry with Price for not returning home from work and accused him of going to have sex with another woman instead, according to criminal complaints against both defendants.

But Allegheny County homicide detectives said Price not only ignored Clark’s texted threats on Tuesday, he didn’t alert authorities previously when Clark texted him other pictures of her holding the children by the throat — and that Price even posted those to Facebook.

One picture showed an infant “obviously distressed and crying” being dangled in the air by its throat. The arm of the adult holding that child “had a tattoo substantially similar to the tattoo Christian Clark has on her right forearm,” though the adult’s face can’t be seen in the picture, the complaint said.

A Facebook caption Price acknowledged posting under that and a similar picture months ago says, “These two pictures she is choking them because was (sic) ain’t together ….”

“Price stated that Clark was choking the children because he and Clark were not together” when those photos were taken, police said. Price told police Clark had texted him the choking photos a few months before his son’s first birthday, and that he posted them on Facebook at that time.

Clark allegedly texted photos and three videos of Price’s son on Tuesday, among threats to harm them.

“Ya kids ain’t safe here I don’t want them here” and “Answer me or im going to jail for child endangerment” were two of the dozens of texts listed in the criminal complaint. Then came a message at 10:01 p.m. that said, “I’m killing them” — followed by a laughing emoji with tears coming from its eyes, police said.

Only after Clark sent a third video at 11:09 p.m., showing her picking up the boy’s limp body by the arm and tossing him on the bed, did Price ask Clark to try to revive him, police said.

“Try to wake him up I said hold him,” he texted at 11:10 p.m. “Its okay Im dialing 911,” Clark responded.

“You need to if he dead,” Price said.

    Larry,how can you be so ignorant as to say that “black mothers” are the worst caregivers? Were you raised by your mother? Is this how you feel about her? If so, you need a reality check! There are bad parents in all races! Your mother is the reason why you are here; she birthed you! I’m sure she would be very disappointed in you for that statement! God bless you…

      You have lost your rabid mind to say what you said. Sometimes Larry it is better to be thought of as a FOOL than to speak and remove ALL DOUBT. You just removed all doubt that you are a complete FOOL. Black Mother’s are the best in the world. My Mother raised me to recognize FOOL’s like yourself. Not to mention a COWARD as well hiding behind a keyboard expressing stupid thoughts that clearly signify mental illness. Get help little person.

    • Larry you LIE!!! My mom was the best and in turn I gave my son love and guidance still to this day!!! You couldn’t get my son to say a bad word about me!!! You are a vile creature….

    Don’t ever call a person’s bluff, He probably didn’t take her seriously as he should have, so now he goes down too. He’ll have plenty of time to think about it now.

    • RENO2AC on said:

      She sent him pictures and a video, so he KNEW she was NOT BLUFFING, and, yet, he still failed to alert the authorities! I would have called to police to tell them I was on my way to go kill that bickie!

    • Tim Green on said:

      My understanding is that his delay in alerting authorities AND apparently this wasnt her first time abusing the shit out of those kids & sending him crazy pics & video of herself doing it, which makes him a party to the child abuse/neglect

  4. SAD , why not just kill yourself if you that unhappy with your kids, they had nothing to do with your life, and no real man would sat by and see he kids scream and not bust down a door to get to them

  5. That baby was so darn cute! People should have to take aptitude, iq, and mental stability tests before being allowed to procreate. Just because you’re able to have children don’t mean you should. Charge and CONVICT both of these dumb ass people.
    In this case the only thing we should be hearing is how much time they will serve or life left, from what I read earlier she made a video of her smuggling this baby. Poor baby, had fools for parents, he didn’t stand a chance.

    Just take her behind the jail & shoot her in the back of the head like the animal she is … fuck trying to make excuses to justify or rationalize her actions
