RICHMOND, Va. — A fund has been set-up to help pay for the funeral of two-year-old O’ustin Spratley.

Spratley died after he was taken to the hospital Wednesday afternoon.  Spratley’s death was later ruled a homicide and Richmond Police arrested the boyfriend of Spratley’s mother.

Kevin L. Webb, 43, was charged with felony child abuse and malicious wounding.

Webb and Spratley lived together on Oakhurst Lane at the Morningside Apartments.

“She was a nice lady, a hard working lady, who did not deserve this,” Morningside Apartments assistant property manager Lateea Butler said. “The baby was always so happy.”

Butler and management at the Morningside Apartments set up the online fund for the family. Click here to contribute.

“Baby Spratley was only two years old, but was the happiest baby. His beautiful eyes lit up the room,” the fundraising page stated. “Baby O’ustin has now gained his wings. He leaves behind his mother and two older sisters.”

  • SICK OF THE OBAMA CRAP

    NO MATTER HOW YOU FEEL ABOUT OBAMA BEING THE PRESIDENT WE ARE TALKING ABOUT AN INNOCENT CHILD WHOSE LIFE WAS TAKEN. STOP MAKING EVERYTHING ABOUT OBAMA AND LOOK AT THE ISSUE AT HAND. IF THIS WAS A MEMBER OF YOUR FAMILY YOU WOULD WANT SOMEONE TO HELP. WHEN IT COMES TO MATTERS OF INNOCENT BABIES AND KIDS LEAVE THE NEGATIVE BS OUT OF IT. IF YOU DONT WANT TO DONATE THAT IS FINE BUT DONT COMMENT EITHER. SIMPLY MOVE ON TO THE NEXT STORY. NO ONE ASKED YOU SPECIFICALLY TO DO ANYTHING. EVEN IF YOU DONT CARE THE LAST THING THIS GRIEVING MOVTHER/FAMILY NEEDS TO HEAR IS WHO IS TO BLAME AND TELL OBAMA. SHE JUST LOST HER BABY. WHAT IF THIS WAS YOUR SISTER OR WIFE AND YOUR SON OR NEPHEW?? HAVE SOME COMPASSION AND CONSIDERATION.

    Kudos to the apartment management for setting up a fund for Ms. Spratley. Evidentally, she was a good tenant and loving mother. Yes, she made a huge mistake in leaving her child with Webb. Sometimes, woman don’t think logically when they’re in love and interested in finding a father figure for their children. I know she’ll regret her decision for the rest of her life.

    Timmy we know you won’t give any money because remember you said in one of your comment that your wefare check is only $200.00.

    @ ignorant a$$ Clayton Bigsby, you don’t wanna mess with me. You are one of the dumbest poster on here besides Timmy. Sit your old a$$ down somewhere. You are another one who’s always talking shyt on here.

    Way to go athynz. You have re-posted the trash that was properly removed. You need to remove the re-post if you have any decency.
    As per usual, you do not comment on the article, but on the blogger. You also appear to do so in an attempt to honor and adulate yourself in the eyes of strangers. Unfortunately, I am acquainted with you and find your incessant self adulation hypocritical and in poor taste.
    Why the “Copy & Paste” always anyway? You can’t remember what was written a few lines above? Perhaps it’s a new trick that still amuses you.

      “DAVID”

      Ah yes, the true village idiot requires an explanation of adult conversations as usual. Imagine that – if you actually read the article and the comments you might begin to comprehend.

      “Way to go athynz. You have re-posted the trash that was properly removed. You need to remove the re-post if you have any decency.”

      I quoted the post because I knew it would be removed and my reply would have looked out of place – and when I made the post Timmay’s post was still there, hence it was a reply. Anyone with a modicum of intelligence would get that part – it’s quite evident that you do not possess even that. After all if it had been removed prior to me commenting how would I have been able to quote it? Fail.

      “As per usual, you do not comment on the article, but on the blogger.”

      Actually old boy that is a page I took from your book – as it so happens I also comment on the article. You however never comment on the articles – I’d ask why but I already addressed that above. Fail.

      “You also appear to do so in an attempt to honor and adulate yourself in the eyes of strangers.”

      I could care less what strangers think of me. Fail.

      “Unfortunately, I am acquainted with you and find your incessant self adulation hypocritical and in poor taste.”

      Then do us all a favor and unmake your acquaintance with me. Do not communicate with me in any way,shape, or form nor make any sort of comment about me and I’ll do the same. It’s really just that simple – and being such a simple person yourself one would think you would comprehend simple. I guess I overestimated your intelligence again. Fail.

      “Why the “Copy & Paste” always anyway? You can’t remember what was written a few lines above? Perhaps it’s a new trick that still amuses you.”

      I addressed that above – and again if you had any sort of intelligence you’d have figured that out. Obviously you do not. All you can do is as usual sling your little insults like a monkey slings it’s poo. Doesn’t the trolling and the failures on your part get old David? Or is that why you change your screen names? The problem with that is you use the same exact pattern every time – I post, you insult; manalish posts, you insult; roger posts, you insult; becky posts, you insult. Sounds like you have some sort of pathological social issues. I’d suggest you get laid but no one would find you attractive enough to bed.

        athynz has an unbelievable to tendency to misread the English language. Yes, you are the village idiot.

    • athynz

      Oh I’m sorry David I just can’t hear you over the sound of how awesome I am. THAT is self adulation and no it’s not a trait I have. Why do you beat your dog?
