Man Beat His 3-Month-Old Daughter To Death, Hid Body In Closet
On Monday, Mosholder was babysitting Bri’Anna and her siblings while Bri’Anna’s mother was taking classes to be a nurse’s aide.
For reasons unknown, Mosholder beat Bri’Anna to death then hid her body in a bedroom closet.
Afterward, he left the apartment and texted his brother while leaving the other children there unattended.
“He said he had done something unforgivable and that was going to jail for a long time,” said Mosholder’s brother.
Police were called to the apartment and would find Bri’Anna’s dead body in the closet bleeding from her nose and mouth.
“It was in an upstairs bedroom in a closet, on a chest of drawers in the closet,” said Heath Police Chief Dave Haren.
An autopsy later revealed Bri’Anna had rib fractures, internal lacerations, contusions on the back of the skull, bruises on the front, back, upper back, torso, and buttocks.
Police located Mosholder at his father’s house a few hours later and taken into custody. He’s been charged with murder and is being held on a million dollars bond in the Licking County Jail.
Bri’anna’s grandmother said Mosholder had issues for a long time.
“He is just a time bomb. When is he gonna explode? And he exploded, and took it out on my granddaughter,” she said.
