EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW: Hannah Overton

By then she was having sex with Larry too. The Calvary temple is a cult and they stand behind their twisted members just like any other cult.

Hannah is a liar,a manipulator and a straight up con artist. Look up Marshal Applewhite He convinced 40 people that if they killed themselves got would take them to Heaven;s gate.

Yeah she was guily,just not what they convicted her of. Good Job Texas. You screwed the pooch on one more thing. Politics in the justice system has sent this mother of 5 to prison.

They should be ashamed of themselves. They will have their place in the Lake of Fire! I've seen the justice for Hannah pages out there, and I was just wondering where is the justice for Andrew page?

She is at the very least responsible for medical neglect of a child who in their right mind doesn't call for an unresponsive child!?!

Either way, she needs to be in jail. If this is in fact what occurred, then don't you believe she has been punished enough?

Andrew had some serious issues prior to coming into this home. Do we punish every parent for their children stealing food from the closet?

What about the children who use guns to kill their siblings? Or the accidental poisonings? We must be very careful what we label a capital murder.

It only takes a few moments of turning your back - and a child can fall into a pool, drown in a toilet, run off in a shopping mall.

I defy any parent to say they are perfect in every way. I am pleased she has been granted a retrial. Prosecutors do not just arbitrarily decide to charge for cap murder, the facts have to fit the statute.

I believe Overton is guilty. She is a horrible person and no matter what any DA says or does in order to avoid an expensive lawsuit, she was guilty or murdering and breaking the spirit of a small child.

It simple does not get more despicable than that. You can put aside a lot of evidence in this case about whether or not she deliberately poisoned Andrew, or whether she and her husband were responsible for his skull fracture.

The jury was polled after their verdict and indicated that they could not come to a conclusion as to whether or not she meant to poison him.

What they did agree on is that she deliberately refused to get Andrew medical attention, which would certainly have saved his life.

And for all you idiots and moraly bereft people who support that monstrous woman, answer this. Because that is what Overton did. While Andrew was unconscious, unresponsive and clearly struggling, she went next door to chat with neighbors, and went about her day.

Failure to act to protect a child is a crime and that is why Overton ended up in prison. There is no miscarriage of justice and nobodies "heart" should matter here.

Our justice system is unjust, period! You only have to look around here. Half the people cannot even muster the attention span it takes to scroll down the page - like this talking monkey Anonymous wrote "[ He rushed home.

When Andrew became unresponsive, the Overtons rushed him to a nearby urgent care clinic. There was not a shred of actual "direct" evidence in this case and this women was - like so many - convicted on an assumption of guilt and the lack of an alternate theory.

Because they're all criminals, or because they all end up caught in the claws of the most defective and self-glorifying injustice system of the civilized world?

Hannah didn't immediately call - she didn't call at all! With calling her husband and waiting for him to come home to then take Andrew to an urgent care, not even an actual hospital, paramedics could have been treating him already if she had just called first.

Wait for the husband Go to urgent care Finally to a hospital - how long did all that delay his treatment???? She admitted giving him Cajun spice in his water and putting hot pepper flakes on her children's tongues because the pastor said to.

His room was in terrible condition and her own children said they watched Andrew on camera until he fell asleep. I think Andrew needed a lot more help than this couple could provide but they wanted to look so goody-goody to their church by adopting him that they didn't want to admit it.

Andrew, he is the one we must remember. From the time this poor little boy was born he lived through hell on earth.

Let's all think about him during this time of celebrating Hannah's release from prison. This poor child had too many ignorant, and neglectful adults in his young life, and that is the true tragedy here.

Guilty as hell and should be locked up. Also should have had her tubes tied after the first kid. These religio-crazies that are overpopulating the earth can never properly care for their kids - things spiral out of control one way or another.

She was overwhelmed and began to hate the child - sadistically fed him substances that would kill him. She is either guilty of being a moron and unfit to raise children, or she is guilty of willful neglect that resulted in the little boy's death.

He began showing all these signs of being disturbed when he moved into that hellhole of a home. You left out the burning of his favourite sheets and him sleeping on wooden bed base, taking him to McDonald's but not letting him eat while the rest of the family eat.

I believe they parented in an abusive way which has been legitimised by Christian fundamentalists. I agree with others that she didn't seek help because of his marked body which revealed his previous punishments.

Very sad that this poor boy was allowed to go to a home with such ignorant and outdated parenting. I fully agree with LeeAnn and others that she is guilty.

As is the Father. I just watched them on Dr Phil. The mother only showed true tears and emotion when she talked of missing her bio children's birthdays!

Not a year shown,over that poor little boy. Oh she's going back to prison to help women and promote the foundation she created. I would love to see the administrative fees on that foundation.

My heart hurts for the fee horrible years that little Andrew lived. What are the sources of your information? I believe Hannah is guilty.

I would just like to know this information you referenced in how they treated Andrew. This family touched my heart today on Dr.

With everything they have been through: Death of their child Children taken from them Arrested Disbelieved Tried Wrongfully imprisoned Another hearing Again disbelieved Again imprisoned, this family has had every reason to be bitter, yet I saw none.

They remained humble and soft spoken. Thank you to Cynthia Orr for fighting so long and hard to right this injustice.

Thank you to Dr. Edgar Cortes for taking the time to write a letter to the defense team. Thank you to the seven court justices of the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals for hearing and actually listening to the facts.

Even though it was ever so briefly discussed on the show today, what Hannah is doing for her previous inmates shows her depth of compassion.

Altruism, sadly, is becoming a rarity. As she realizes, hope is something we all need. This family has demonstrated phenomenal grace, something some of the people who left comments here could learn.

Guilty period I raised 3 children and babysit many others in my life and it has NEVER occurred to me to give a 4 yo a drink with Zatarans seasoning in it?!?!

How do you even come up with this idea? And burning sheets on a grill? Something clearly wrong with the Overton's mental processes.

The child is dead as a direct result of neglectful and very questionable parenting. She gets no sympathy from me. Good christian, smh.

I raised 3 children and baby sat many more over the years and NEVER has it occurred to me to give a 4 year old a drink with a spice mix Zatarans mixed in it.

What kind of deranged mind even thinks up such a thing? To what purpose? Burning sheets on a grill, taking naps with 5 young children running around unsupervised, hosing a child down--these are not acceptable or normal parental practices.

This poor child is dead as a direct result of the negligence and bizarre reactions by these so called good christian parents. Unbelievable how so many people are willing to accept the explanations from these clearly disturbed individuals.

I saw Dr. I don't know if they were guilty or not. I do know that making a drink of Zataran's and water for a boy to drink is creepy.

Her laughing in her police interrogation is very odd. Also, the wooden bed and burning the sheets on a BBQ grill is just plain loony.

I would have probably convicted her too. I can understand why the capital murder charge was overturned. Its hard to prove she intentionally killed him.

But she did not act as s mother should. Putting chili powder or Zatarans in his sippy cup. Making him sleep on plywood. Treating a wound with bleach when she was s former lvn.

Calling her husband home from work when he was unresponsive. Then taking him to urgent care clinic instead of the hospital.

Appearing to nurses at the clinic to be smiling and in good spirits while the child was on the verge of death.

She may not be guilty beyond a reasonable doubt but she sure isn't innocent!! They did not have to prove intent on whether she meant to kill this innocent little child.

All they had to prove is that she deliberately denied him medical care, when medical care would have saved his life. Guilty as charged.

Watching all the kids eat while this one couldn't? I couldn't do that to a stranger's child let alone my own. Lets pray Justice finally is done for this dear woman I had it for half a year and I ate, smelled patroleum based shoe polish.

My Pica was caused by my having severe anemia. That child got into the salt and ate some of it all by himself I'd be willing to testify to my experiences with eating shoe polish If the little boy had injested the salt earlier in the day, when Hannah said she fell asleep and woke to find him with something in his hand in the pantry, he would have been Nauseaus and unwell.

So how is it, that he managed to eat 2 servings of food and wanted more later on! And only after the drink did he apparently become ill. Her whole family has issues, though.

The CA cult where the men had themselves castrated. She was rasied around that. And as her husband waited years for her release, she got herself a girlfriend in prison to pass the time.

Gloss over it all they like, no one can explain how badly they failed this terribly needy and abused child. Whether she "murdered" him or not, she contributed to his death and there is no denying that truth.

Hannah laughed while giving testimony and never shed a tear for him, only herself. The oldest brother said something about missing him, but that could have been coached.

If the 4 year old had been properly supervised he might be alive today. Seeing that he was finding things in the yard and putting them in his mouth could been solved by picking it up and disposing of it.

Those are the normal things people do. Someone from the church could have been asked to help with the boys while she napped. No effort was put into making the house and yard a safe place for that little boy.

They never treated him like their own child. Hannah was not prepared for a child who was like the biological cookie-cutter children she already had.

I doubt if they would have ever adopted him. A little toddler died and all she and her husband cared about was having a sixth baby of their own.

Shame on them!! More than 5,, pageviews from countries. The year-old girl who gave birth to him had used, during her pregnancy, meth, crack cocaine, LSD, and marijuana.

The expectant mother had also consumed alcohol, took Xanax, and smoked cigarettes. The baby's year-old father worked for a traveling carnival.

This infant should have been taken from his unfit parents at birth. Andrew was a year old when his mother took him to an emergency room with a broken arm.

Nothing came of the CPS investigation, and the baby was returned to his mother. Eventually, after repeated evidence of child abuse, CPS agents, on the grounds that Andrew was in "immediate danger," took him from his young parents.

The agency placed the two and a half-year-old toddler into foster care where he was shuffled from one home to another.

The couple resided in a modest ranch-style house with their four young children. Twenty-nine-year-old Hannah was six months pregnant at the time.

Although the family struggled financially from what Larry Overton earned as a landscape lighting installer, the couple expressed interest in adopting Andrew.

In , when Hannah Overton was seven-years-old, her father, Bennie Saenz, an evangelical preacher, was arrested and charged with murder.

Convicted of bludgeoning a year-old girl to death, then dumping her body along the shore of Padre Island, the Corpus Christi preacher went to prison for 23 years.

Before her marriage to Larry, Hannah had worked as a volunteer in an orphanage in Reynosa, Mexico across the border from Corpus Christi.

As a married couple, Larry and Hannah had performed missionary work for their church. By all accounts they were decent people, loving parents who had never been in trouble with the authorities.

Moreover, neither Larry or Hannah had a history of mental illness. In the spring of , Andrew Burd joined the Overton family on a six-month probationary basis.

On October 2, , not long after the official adoption, the four-year-old became suddenly ill. He began vomiting and struggled with his breathing.

Hannah, instead of immediately calling , telephoned Larry at work. Medical personnel at the urgent care clinic, suspicious of child abuse, notified the police shortly after Andrew was admitted to the hospital.

Within hours of Andrew's hospitalization, police with the Corpus Christi Police Department searched the Overton residence. In the evening of October 3, , Andrew Burd died.

The forensic pathologist, finding some bleeding of the brain, external scratches and bruises, and twice the level of sodium in the dead child's blood, ruled the manner of death homicide.

Fernandez identified the boy's cause of death as "acute sodium toxicity with blunt force trauma as a contributing factor.

Fernandez failed to note that the brain hemorrhaging could have been caused by the sodium content in Andrew's blood. Child Protection Services agents took the other Overton children out of their home and placed them with relatives.

Eventually the children would be placed under the care of Hannah Overton's mother. A few days after Andrew's death, Corpus Christi detective Michael Hess, an investigator who specialized in child abuse cases, interrogated Hannah Overton at the police station.

She had agreed to be questioned without the presence of counsel. Detective Hess made it clear that he believed that Hannah, feeling overburdened with so many young children, had murdered her adopted son.

I don't see what caused the salt content. Did you at any time strike him? The five-hour grilling at the police station ended without a confession.

In his report, Detective Hess wrote: "It should be noted that during the entire conversation conversation? Under Texas law, if convicted as charged, Hannah Overton faced life in prison without the chance of parole.

Prosecutor Eastwood, in her opening remarks to the jury, said, "We don't know precisely how she [the defendant] got [the salt] down Andrew, but we know that he [the child] was very, very, obedient.

Ray Fernandez, the Nueces County Medical Examiner testified that he had seen "burn-like scarring" on Andrew's arm that had likely been caused by "contact with a hot surface.

Fernandez could not testify that blunt force trauma had contributed to Andrew's death. The judge, due to insufficient scientific evidence to back up this part of the pathologist's report, ruled it inadmissible.

Alexander Rotta, a pediatric critical care specialist from Indianapolis, Indiana, testified that "There were so many bruises and scratches [on Andrew's body] that it would be difficult to describe them all.

Rotta told the jurors that the sodium content in Andrew's blood amounted to six teaspoons of salt. In the doctor's expert opinion, Andrew Burd's death had not been accidental.

After Detective Michael Hess played a video of the defendant's interrogation, one of the nurses who had performed CPR on Andrew at the urgent care clinic testified that the defendant, during the emergency, had not behaved like a panic-stricken parent.

In fact, she often had a smile on her face. Two other urgent care clinic employees took the stand and gave similar testimony. One of these witnesses said that she had heard the defendant tell someone at the clinic that the boy had stopped breathing after he had been "punished.

At the close of the state's case, defense attorneys David Jones and Chris Pinedo brought Harvard educated forensic pathologist Dr.

Judy Melinek to the stand. Melinek identified the sores on Andrew's body as being consistent with mosquito bites that had been excessively scratched.

Children with this malady have an uncontrollable desire to consume inappropriate substances such as salt.

Hannah Overton, who took the stand on her own behalf, did not come off as a convincing or even sympathetic witness. Her attorneys, given the accusations in the case, had no choice but to put her on the stand.

At this stage of the trial, given the testimony of the medical examiner, the pediatrician from Indiana, and the urgent care clinic personnel, the jurors had probably made up their minds.

The three-week trial came to an end when the jury, after deliberating eleven hours, found Hannah Overton guilty of capital murder. She would eventually be sent to the maximum security women's prison outside of Waco, Texas.

Overton's attorneys, shortly after the verdict, polled the jury. None of the jurors had been convinced beyond a reasonable doubt that the defendant had poisoned her child with salt.

Two days after the guilty verdict, Dr. Edgar Cortes, the emergency room physician on duty at Driscoll Hospital the day Andrew arrived, and the pediatrician who had resuscitated the patient before he was sent to the intensive care unit, wrote a letter to the Overton defense team.

Cortes informed the lawyers that while he had been scheduled to testify for the prosecution, prosecutor Sandra Eastwood never called him to the stand.

The doctor wasn't called because in his opinion, Andrew Burd's death had been accidental. Cortes, had he taken the stand, would have testified that Andrew had been a hyperactive child who suffered from an autism spectrum disorder.

Cortes had studied Andrew's medical records. This would account for the boy's inappropriate eating habits, obsessive scratching and picking, and head banging.

In the months following the guilty verdict, three prominent appellate attorneys--Cynthia Orr, John Raley, and Gerry Goldstein--took an interest in the Overton case.

The attorneys filed an appeal alleging newly discovered exonerating evidence, ineffective legal representation at trial, and the withholding of exculpatory evidence from the defense by prosecutor Sandra Eastwood.

The justices found no proof that the state had known of Dr. Edgar Cortes' cause and manner of death opinion. The appellate judges also rejected the newly discovered evidence and ineffective counsel claims.

In the spring of , the Overton appellate team petitioned for the right to have access to the prosecution's file on the case.

Prior to the trial, prosecutor Eastwood, when asked by defense attorneys for access to documents related to Andrew's stomach contents, claimed that such a report didn't exist.

The appellate attorneys, when they were given the opportunity to examine the prosecution's file, found the gastric contents report.

According to this document, Andrew's stomach contents did not reveal elevated amounts of salt when he arrived at the urgent care clinic.

Hannah Overton's appellate team also learned that prosecutor Eastwood had scheduled, for testimony, Dr. Michael Moritz, the clinical director of pediatric nephrology at the Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh.

Moritz specialized in children's kidney diseases, and in , had published a paper on accidental child salt poisoning cases.

Moritz had found that a vast majority of these cases involved boys between the age of one and six. Moreover, they had all had been in foster care, or were from abusive homes.

All of these boys suffered from the eating disorder, pica. Moritz told the appellate team that he had waited days in the Corpus Christi courthouse for his turn to take the stand.

When the doctor told prosecutor Eastwood that he had to return to Pittsburgh, she arranged for a video deposition that because of time, was not completed.

Had he taken the stand, Dr. Moritz would have testified that in his expert opinion, Andrew's death had been accidental. Appellate attorney Cynthia Orr, about the time of the Dr.

Moritz revelation, received a letter from Anna Jimenez, the former Nueces County prosecutor who had worked on the Overton case with Sandra Eastwood.

Regarding whether Eastwood had withheld exculpatory evidence from the defense, Jimenez wrote: "I fear she [Eastwood] may have purposely withheld evidence that may have been favorable to Hannah Overton's defense.

Ten months later, in February , appellate judge Cathy Cochran ordered the Corpus Christi trial court judge to hold such a proceeding to entertain the appellate team's assertion that Hanna Overton, an innocent person, had been wrongfully convicted of murder.

The evidentiary hearing began on April 24, Chris Pinedo, one of Overton's trial attorneys, took the stand. Pinedo testified that he had asked prosecutor Sandra Eastwood for a sample of Andrew's gastric contents that had been acquired by Driscoll Hospital personnel.

Attorney Pinedo wanted to have an independent scientist analyze this evidence for sodium content. The interrogation tapes, obtained by Investigation Discovery as they were working on a documentary about the case, show her hunched over, rushing through questions, while repeatedly asking when she could return to the hospital to see Andrew.

Detective Michael Hess showed particular interest in Hannah giving the boy seasoning in his water. After spending hours with Hannah, Hess moved on to her husband, Larry.

Andrew died the night of October 3. Because they were suspects, Hannah and Larry weren't allowed to be with him at the hospital. When Andrew took his last breath, Hannah's mother and pastor were with him.

Hannah found out about her son's death from a phone call from the pastor. She says, "Not being able to be with him was just … it's just … I don't have words to describe it.

Because of the investigation, the other four Overton children were taken away by Child Protective Services to live with two separate foster families.

After one night, Hannah's mother was able to secure temporary custody. And when Hannah was out on bail, awaiting trial, she gave birth to her youngest daughter, Emma, in January She was allowed to spend three days with her in the hospital and then CPS took Emma away too.

We gave her the middle name 'Blessing,' because she really is such a blessing," Hannah says. She was convinced that once the police looked further into it, they'd realize she had nothing to do with Andrew's death and that her family would be able to grieve the loss of Andrew together.

Weeks later, Hannah and Larry noticed red and blue cop car lights flashing behind them. When they pulled over, they were approached by officers with their guns drawn and who ordered the couple to the ground to handcuff them.

A row of TV reporters were there with their cameras to capture the entire thing. At that moment, Hannah realized for the first time how dire the situation was — and she was terrified.

The Overtons were charged with capital murder, for which the only punishments in Texas are the death penalty or life in prison without parole.

The media attention surrounding the case was crushing. Hannah was portrayed as a cold, calculating, abusive mother. Pamela Colloff, the Texas Monthly reporter covering the Overtons' story , noted online commenters were ruthless in their criticism, one writing, "You can just tell by looking at her how evil she is.

I knew that he had his mind made up, that my wife had done something to Andrew. Prosecutor Sandra Eastwood painted a picture of a desperate, overwhelmed woman who held down her foster son by the throat and forced him to drink a fatal concoction.

In September , after a 3-week trial and 11 hours of deliberation, the jury came back with a guilty verdict. When polled afterward, all 12 jurors said they didn't think Hannah intentionally poisoned her son, but that she hadn't done enough to help him fast enough.

For Hannah, hearing the verdict and the days after are a blur. She doesn't remember embracing her husband in the courtroom or her mom, who is seen on news footage whispering to her, "I love you.

Be strong. The family was relieved, though, that he was able to regain custody of the children. Hannah began to adjust to her new life behind bars.

Every Saturday, her husband drove the five hours each way to visit her, and, once a month, he piled the kids into the van to see their mother.

During one of those visits, Hannah watched through metal bars as her youngest daughter, Emma, took her first steps in the parking lot.

On the one hand, it was amazing to be able to see her take her first steps in the parking lot, but I was six floors up behind thick glass while I watched," Hannah says.

I called them regularly, and I actually taught Isaac, my oldest, literature through correspondence. I ordered a home-schooling program, picked his readings and graded them and sent them back to him.

It was a way to stay connected. Hannah says that thanks to her faith, she never doubted that she would be proven innocent somehow and could return to her family — despite the fact that parole was not on the table.

So depressed that I was in a fog, where I couldn't eat or do anything other than just lay there. But I always believed God would prove my innocence.

Hannah's lawyers couldn't let her case go, either: "I had some friends who are great criminal defense lawyers down in Corpus Christi — they're tough guys.

One day they called me together on a conference call and they were crying," says Cynthia Orr, a San Antonio, Texas, attorney specializing in wrongful convictions.

Would I please come help, because she's innocent? Hannah's new legal team realized a few holes in the case which could be key to getting her an appeal.

For starters, Dr. Edgar Cortes, who'd observed Andrew before his death, never took the stand because, Orr says, the state made him unavailable to the defense.

He could've provided an important perspective, since Andrew was described during the trial as a normal, healthy child.

Cortes, however, knew of Andrew's behavioral issues. It was amazing to be able to see her take her first steps, but I was six floors up behind bars and thick glass.

Second, Andrew's vomit hadn't been tested, according to the documentary, because the state had lied to the defense, saying it wasn't available, when, in fact, it was.

Eastwood, the prosecutor who tried the case against Hannah, did not respond to requests for comment from GoodHousekeeping. When the vomit was tested, it showed low sodium — proving that the lethal portion of salt must have been ingested earlier in the day.

Hannah explained to her lawyers that she recalled Andrew earlier in the day sneaking into a kitchen cabinet, but didn't recall what he had in his hand when she found him.

Finally, the testimony from Dr. Michael Moritz, an expert on salt poisoning, wasn't shown during trial because the defense was told his video-recorded interview was of such poor quality that it wasn't worth showing to the jury.

But when Orr and her team reviewed it, they discovered it contained valuable facts about Andrew's condition, like the fact that it takes at least an hour for a child to exhibit symptoms — thus proving that the Overtons reacted in a timely manner.

Thanks to the new evidence, Hannah finally got a new trial on December 16, At the bond hearing, Hannah's legal team read a letter from Dr. Alexandre Rotta, the doctor who testified as a key witness for the prosecution against Hannah: "The outcome of this case still keeps me up at night after seven years.

And I believe Mrs. Overton has more than served her punishment for what is at worst child endangerment or involuntary manslaughter.

I am glad she has now successfully appealed [her] conviction but wish the DA would pursue a lesser charge if any affording her immediate release based on the time served.

They were successful. After seven years locked away from her family, Hannah was released on bail just in time for Christmas.

And her family was there to embrace her as she walked out of prison. Her husband and older two children threw their arms around her first, then, tears streaming down her face, she made her way to the younger two, who'd spent the majority of their lives interacting with their mom during prison visitation hours.

Now, nearly as tall as their mom, they broke into shy smiles as they embraced her. I think the only time we slept was when we napped watching movies.

After seven years of fantasizing what it would be like to be home with them, it was finally happening.

And for the first time, the family was able to mourn Andrew together. The emotions were overwhelming but we weren't able to allow them to walk through those together," she says.

Unfortunately, a number of trolls follow suspected child abuse cases and are indifferent to the facts of the case. They simply see the death of a child.

While the loss of Andrew is horrible, it is also horrible to imprison someone labelled with a crime they did not commit.

It is about searching the facts of a case and understanding what leads to a proper decision. Hannah Overton may be guilty of not appreciating the "seriousness" od Andrew's condition because it wasn't something she was worried about.

However, it is abundantly clear she is not guilty of the capital murder of this child. It has all been punishment enough.

She should be home raising her own children instead of being a burden on my taxes. As well - to you who are quick to judge - think about being in this position yourself.

You wouldn't wish blanket and false accusations to determine your guilt or innocence. Because I am not ashamed of my comments, I will sign my name.

I used Anonymous because I don't want to set up an account. Texas has the highest number off children killed by parents or guardians. Parents are brutal punishing children.

There is a BBC documental filmed in Texas. Christians excuse physical punishment. She is guilty to many bruises and cuts on the child.

I am the mother of an autistic child; everything they described about Andrew--his pica, tantrums meltdowns , head banging, feces smearing, scratches and sores from messing with bug bites, developmental delays--all clearly point to him having autism.

We have to hide the salt from our son. He will get the shaker and shake it directly on his hand Since they didn't even know he had autism or understand pica, it is normal that they wouldn't understand the risk of the foods he was eating or recognize the symptoms of salt toxicity.

Thus is sad, but not criminal. What is criminal is that there were so many ignorant, uninformed people involved in this case, she didn't stand a chance.

Sorry this child had no history in any other foster home of eating things he wasn't supposed to and no reports of him being autistic either. Why would he wait to kill himself with salt in there care but not in any of the other foster homes he was in??

She is guilty. I more-or-less agree with Mary. I don't think the jury returned the right verdict, though, given the evidence.

These are my own words, of course, based on what I've read and what I remember, but that was the gist. I just don't think there was enough evidence to prove either one.

Even if former ADA Eastwood had withheld or twisted evidence to turn the case in her favor which it, sadly, looks pretty clear that she did it just didn't seem there was enough evidence to convict of capital murder.

I, personally, find the theory that she fed Andrew some kind of seasoning spice as a punishment quite plausible.

I find the theory that she either gave him this punishment so often in a short period, or lost her head and gave him an obscene amount of it quite plausible.

I DON'T, however, think that if she did that, that she did it thinking, and hoping, that it would kill him. Once he was ill, I don't think she waited to get help in the hopes that he would die before she got to the clinic or to Driscoll.

I DO think it's likely that she recklessly and cruelly gave Andrew the salt and that she made incredibly reckless choices once it was clear that he needed help.

Criminally reckless. Intentional, premeditated murder? I really don't think so. But she killed him all the same.

I also think she is guilty the child had no problems before Poor baby as for her no excuse for her she should be locked up for her actions and her continuous lies.

Wow, where do I start? First, where is the irrefutable evidence that proves her guilt beyond reasonable doubt?

There is none. Drawing conclusions after seeing a news story a few minutes in length isn't research. Her "laughing"?

Simply nervous laughter is the result of a psychological defense mechanism that people use to tell themselves that what they see is not as threatening as it appears.

If you'd done your due diligence by researching this case, you'd also know that Hannah nor her husband were NOT allowed to visit Andrew.

So neither of them were "watching a little boy die". Tell me how Hannah Overton is deformed? She has no history of any mental problems.

What exactly is a "slothy brain"?! Finally, trying to communicate with you a child is quite difficult. Run along now. You may return to the discussion when you grow up.

I do not have a "slothy brain" so I have to agree with Beth. I do see why people are confused though as no report I could find explained what killed him.

They say salt poisoning but then point at the report that showed no elevated salt levels in his vomit. That's why he had salt in his system but not in his stomach.

As for all the oddities, they made sense to me. We got hosed down in the yard all the time as kids Burning the sheets seems odd but if the kid was obsessively freaking out over them I can understanding wanting to burn them so he can't go back to them later Dad is assuming the boy is going to recover at this time.

I live in the South, people burn all kinds of things, a common way to get rid of trash. Her laughter? Again, people have odd reactions to stress.

The plywood bed? Why is that even a question? They didn't have a ton of money. When you're poor you "rig" what you need. Plywood has give to it, I'd think it would make a decent base for a bed.

The prosecutor should be prosecuted for her handling of this case Those rules are there for a reason I was in prison with Hannah overton.

There are many things that the public does not know about this case. She had taken tylenol 4s and the truth is ,well, she was HIGH.

Larry had the rest of the children with him because he did not feel like messing with Andrew. So, you have this child with an eating disorder and has already done numerous things over the last few nights,supposedly, then you take some pills that make you nod out and got to sleep high as a junky.

The child was neglected and that is how he died. If the D. Now that she has been declaired actually innocent Oh,and where did I get my information???

From Hannah who is also a closet lesbian. Noone talks about that either. By then she was having sex with Larry too. The Calvary temple is a cult and they stand behind their twisted members just like any other cult.

Hannah is a liar,a manipulator and a straight up con artist. Look up Marshal Applewhite He convinced 40 people that if they killed themselves got would take them to Heaven;s gate.

Yeah she was guily,just not what they convicted her of. Good Job Texas. You screwed the pooch on one more thing. Politics in the justice system has sent this mother of 5 to prison.

They should be ashamed of themselves. They will have their place in the Lake of Fire! I've seen the justice for Hannah pages out there, and I was just wondering where is the justice for Andrew page?

She is at the very least responsible for medical neglect of a child who in their right mind doesn't call for an unresponsive child!?! Either way, she needs to be in jail.

If this is in fact what occurred, then don't you believe she has been punished enough? Andrew had some serious issues prior to coming into this home.

Do we punish every parent for their children stealing food from the closet? What about the children who use guns to kill their siblings?

Or the accidental poisonings? We must be very careful what we label a capital murder. It only takes a few moments of turning your back - and a child can fall into a pool, drown in a toilet, run off in a shopping mall.

I defy any parent to say they are perfect in every way. I am pleased she has been granted a retrial. Prosecutors do not just arbitrarily decide to charge for cap murder, the facts have to fit the statute.

I believe Overton is guilty. She is a horrible person and no matter what any DA says or does in order to avoid an expensive lawsuit, she was guilty or murdering and breaking the spirit of a small child.

It simple does not get more despicable than that. You can put aside a lot of evidence in this case about whether or not she deliberately poisoned Andrew, or whether she and her husband were responsible for his skull fracture.

The jury was polled after their verdict and indicated that they could not come to a conclusion as to whether or not she meant to poison him. What they did agree on is that she deliberately refused to get Andrew medical attention, which would certainly have saved his life.

And for all you idiots and moraly bereft people who support that monstrous woman, answer this. Because that is what Overton did.

While Andrew was unconscious, unresponsive and clearly struggling, she went next door to chat with neighbors, and went about her day.

Failure to act to protect a child is a crime and that is why Overton ended up in prison. There is no miscarriage of justice and nobodies "heart" should matter here.

Our justice system is unjust, period! You only have to look around here. Half the people cannot even muster the attention span it takes to scroll down the page - like this talking monkey Anonymous wrote "[ He rushed home.

When Andrew became unresponsive, the Overtons rushed him to a nearby urgent care clinic. There was not a shred of actual "direct" evidence in this case and this women was - like so many - convicted on an assumption of guilt and the lack of an alternate theory.

Because they're all criminals, or because they all end up caught in the claws of the most defective and self-glorifying injustice system of the civilized world?

Hannah didn't immediately call - she didn't call at all! With calling her husband and waiting for him to come home to then take Andrew to an urgent care, not even an actual hospital, paramedics could have been treating him already if she had just called first.

Wait for the husband Go to urgent care Finally to a hospital - how long did all that delay his treatment???? She admitted giving him Cajun spice in his water and putting hot pepper flakes on her children's tongues because the pastor said to.

His room was in terrible condition and her own children said they watched Andrew on camera until he fell asleep.

I think Andrew needed a lot more help than this couple could provide but they wanted to look so goody-goody to their church by adopting him that they didn't want to admit it.

Andrew, he is the one we must remember. From the time this poor little boy was born he lived through hell on earth. Let's all think about him during this time of celebrating Hannah's release from prison.

This poor child had too many ignorant, and neglectful adults in his young life, and that is the true tragedy here.

Guilty as hell and should be locked up. Also should have had her tubes tied after the first kid. These religio-crazies that are overpopulating the earth can never properly care for their kids - things spiral out of control one way or another.

She was overwhelmed and began to hate the child - sadistically fed him substances that would kill him. She is either guilty of being a moron and unfit to raise children, or she is guilty of willful neglect that resulted in the little boy's death.

He began showing all these signs of being disturbed when he moved into that hellhole of a home. You left out the burning of his favourite sheets and him sleeping on wooden bed base, taking him to McDonald's but not letting him eat while the rest of the family eat.

I believe they parented in an abusive way which has been legitimised by Christian fundamentalists. I agree with others that she didn't seek help because of his marked body which revealed his previous punishments.

Very sad that this poor boy was allowed to go to a home with such ignorant and outdated parenting. I fully agree with LeeAnn and others that she is guilty.

As is the Father. I just watched them on Dr Phil. The mother only showed true tears and emotion when she talked of missing her bio children's birthdays!

Not a year shown,over that poor little boy. Oh she's going back to prison to help women and promote the foundation she created.

I would love to see the administrative fees on that foundation. My heart hurts for the fee horrible years that little Andrew lived. What are the sources of your information?

I believe Hannah is guilty. I would just like to know this information you referenced in how they treated Andrew. The interrogation tapes, obtained by Investigation Discovery as they were working on a documentary about the case, show her hunched over, rushing through questions, while repeatedly asking when she could return to the hospital to see Andrew.

Detective Michael Hess showed particular interest in Hannah giving the boy seasoning in his water. After spending hours with Hannah, Hess moved on to her husband, Larry.

Andrew died the night of October 3. Because they were suspects, Hannah and Larry weren't allowed to be with him at the hospital.

When Andrew took his last breath, Hannah's mother and pastor were with him. Hannah found out about her son's death from a phone call from the pastor.

She says, "Not being able to be with him was just … it's just … I don't have words to describe it. Because of the investigation, the other four Overton children were taken away by Child Protective Services to live with two separate foster families.

After one night, Hannah's mother was able to secure temporary custody. And when Hannah was out on bail, awaiting trial, she gave birth to her youngest daughter, Emma, in January She was allowed to spend three days with her in the hospital and then CPS took Emma away too.

We gave her the middle name 'Blessing,' because she really is such a blessing," Hannah says. She was convinced that once the police looked further into it, they'd realize she had nothing to do with Andrew's death and that her family would be able to grieve the loss of Andrew together.

Weeks later, Hannah and Larry noticed red and blue cop car lights flashing behind them. When they pulled over, they were approached by officers with their guns drawn and who ordered the couple to the ground to handcuff them.

A row of TV reporters were there with their cameras to capture the entire thing. At that moment, Hannah realized for the first time how dire the situation was — and she was terrified.

The Overtons were charged with capital murder, for which the only punishments in Texas are the death penalty or life in prison without parole.

The media attention surrounding the case was crushing. Hannah was portrayed as a cold, calculating, abusive mother. Pamela Colloff, the Texas Monthly reporter covering the Overtons' story , noted online commenters were ruthless in their criticism, one writing, "You can just tell by looking at her how evil she is.

I knew that he had his mind made up, that my wife had done something to Andrew. Prosecutor Sandra Eastwood painted a picture of a desperate, overwhelmed woman who held down her foster son by the throat and forced him to drink a fatal concoction.

In September , after a 3-week trial and 11 hours of deliberation, the jury came back with a guilty verdict. When polled afterward, all 12 jurors said they didn't think Hannah intentionally poisoned her son, but that she hadn't done enough to help him fast enough.

For Hannah, hearing the verdict and the days after are a blur. She doesn't remember embracing her husband in the courtroom or her mom, who is seen on news footage whispering to her, "I love you.

Be strong. The family was relieved, though, that he was able to regain custody of the children. Hannah began to adjust to her new life behind bars.

Every Saturday, her husband drove the five hours each way to visit her, and, once a month, he piled the kids into the van to see their mother.

During one of those visits, Hannah watched through metal bars as her youngest daughter, Emma, took her first steps in the parking lot. On the one hand, it was amazing to be able to see her take her first steps in the parking lot, but I was six floors up behind thick glass while I watched," Hannah says.

I called them regularly, and I actually taught Isaac, my oldest, literature through correspondence. I ordered a home-schooling program, picked his readings and graded them and sent them back to him.

It was a way to stay connected. Hannah says that thanks to her faith, she never doubted that she would be proven innocent somehow and could return to her family — despite the fact that parole was not on the table.

So depressed that I was in a fog, where I couldn't eat or do anything other than just lay there. But I always believed God would prove my innocence.

Hannah's lawyers couldn't let her case go, either: "I had some friends who are great criminal defense lawyers down in Corpus Christi — they're tough guys.

One day they called me together on a conference call and they were crying," says Cynthia Orr, a San Antonio, Texas, attorney specializing in wrongful convictions.

Would I please come help, because she's innocent? Hannah's new legal team realized a few holes in the case which could be key to getting her an appeal.

For starters, Dr. Edgar Cortes, who'd observed Andrew before his death, never took the stand because, Orr says, the state made him unavailable to the defense.

He could've provided an important perspective, since Andrew was described during the trial as a normal, healthy child.
