De’Asia Bartee


Crimes: Child Abuse, Murder, Negligence

I suspect that Samia Rose Yusuf was a big inconvenience when she died. Hell, I suspect she was a big inconvenience when she was alive, at least to her mother, De’Asia Bartee. That’s an awful way to speak of a 14-month-old baby, I know, but that was how the poor little child was treated.

A 14-month-old toddler would not have weighed only 14 pounds if her mother didn’t consider her an inconvenience. Those regular feedings, you know, and buying baby food — such a pain. It’s much easier to not feed a baby much at all. That’s probably what De’Asia Bartee thought.

But then there would be crying. Babies cry when they’re hungry, and you have to deal with them — another inconvenience. People hear the crying and ask about the baby — what a pain. And the noise coming out of that little mouth could be unbearable.

So how do you deal with the crying? Certainly not by feeding and comforting the child — not if you’re De’Asia Bartee. Nope, you just administer a few whacks to teach the baby not to cry.

samia-roseAnd so Samia Rose got a black eye. I bet that didn’t stop her crying. Her mother maybe shook her then, dislocating her lumbar spine. I bet that made the crying even worse. So De’Asia Bartee stepped up her actions, and maybe she punched or stomped on little Samia Rose. Whatever the hellbitch did to the baby, she caused internal bleeding. And death.

Samia Rose Yusuf was battered to death maybe in August 2016. She’d been deprived of food before then by her killer.

You notice I said the baby died maybe in August 2016. That’s because De’Asia Bartee found herself with an inconvenient corpse to deal with. She did the easiest thing — she put it in the freezer.

I don’t know what De’Asia Bartee told her other daughters, aged 9 and 6. How to explain when a baby disappears?

I don’t know what De’Asia Bartee told her other relatives, if anything. What I do know is Samia Rose’s grandparents and auntie were at De’Asia Bartee’s Mount Vernon, New York apartment very early in the morning on August 5, 2016.

I suspect they wanted to see the little girl. I suspect that De’Asia Bartee had no choice but to put the refrigerated corpse to bed, and make her family believe she died in her sleep.

At 5:30 a.m. the auntie called 911 to say the baby wasn’t breathing.

First responders found poor little battered Samia Rose in her playpen, extremely cold to the touch with her arms pointing toward the ceiling. Her eye was swollen shut, and she had trauma to the face.

There was, of course, no reviving the baby.

At Montefiore Mount Vernon Hospital, the examining doctor told police that he believed the child had been dead for some time and refrigerated. She was in an advanced state of decomposition.

De’Asia Bartee was arrested and the 2 surviving girls were placed in child protective services.

The autopsy confirmed that Samia Rose Yusuf died of blunt force trauma. She suffered from severe malnourishment.

De’Asia Bartee pled guilty to 1st-degree manslaughter. In March 2017 she was sentenced to 19 years in prison.

I personally would have preferred the murdering mother to be sentenced to life in prison. She’s only 27 years old now, so she’ll have many, many years of freedom to enjoy when she’s released from prison.

I can only hope that De’Asia Bartee won’t be popping out any more babies that she can abuse and murder. She doesn’t deserve the children she has.

RIP, baby Samia Rose, bless her wee heart.

I wish all the very best to her sisters. I hope they are now in loving, caring, safe homes and being given all of the support they need to grow up successful and happy.

And I hope De’Asia Bartee is followed forever by the memory of the completely evil deed she committed. She is a baby killer, period, and that will never change.

    Bartee you are one sick Bitch. How could you murder your sweet baby girl. You are a monster and 19 years in prison won’t change that. You get a roof over your head 3 meals a day and that poor child gets what? To never have a life. Never know her sisters or to know any of the rest of her family that really loved her. She will never graduate from high school or have a chance to get a great education, to fall in love and marry the love of her life, too have her own children and one day be a grandmother. You deprived your baby girl all of this. I wish you nothing but pain and suffering till the day you die you selfish hellBitch. You are no kind of mother and I to hope and wish all the very best for Baby Samia Rose’s sisters at least I pray you will never be apart of there lives. Burn in hell BABY KILLER.

    Bartee should have to live out her days in prison. She didn’t deserve that beautiful baby, and she doesn’t deserve freedom. I hope she’s haunted by what she did.

    I totally agree. Women who starve and torture little babies to death shouldn’t be allowed to have kids. There are so many people in the world who would love to have a child but can’t. If De’Asia didn’t want her baby, the least she could have done was give her up for adoption or hand her over to her F*****G parents!

    Cleo, I hate to shatter your hope that this piece of crap never has any more children once she is released from prison, but something tells me that she will. Why? Well, she probably was on welfare and never worked a day in her life. She is gonna need some more kids so she won’t have to work…and then she will have more time to smack those kids around like she did Samia! I hope they give her a wonderful “baby killer welcome” in prison. She deserves that AND worse!!

    Disgusting. This baby could have been loved by someone who desperately wants a child but instead this selfish cunt decides death is preferable. Whether to save face or not be viewed as a ‘bad mom’ – it’s pure selfish bitchery that she didn’t allow someone else a chance to love this poor neglected, malnourished, abused baby.

    Looks like she didn’t miss a meal though, maybe she ate the babies share of food rotten selfish cunt she is.

    you absolute piece of shit. to see that beautiful baby girls little face…. you dog, id love 5 mins with you!!!!!

  8. Jennifer Scambler says:

    You should’ve used birth control or kept your legs together if you didn’t want Samia. Or I don’t know, maybe thought about giving her up for adoption to a family who could give her the love and care she needed. Burn in hell you selfish piece of trash.

    Our laws and punishments need to be changed…all child abusers, molesters and rapist should be clipped while in prison..if convicted a second time amputation of both hands…third time, DEATH

    This woman looks brain dead. How do you have a 14 lbs toddler and no one questions the weight? Obviously this child hadn’t seen basic medical care. My god no one in this community said anything to authorities. But I guess even if they did child protective services most likely wouldn’t have done Jack shit. I wonder if her other children were malnourished as well? This woman should’ve gotten life.

    Also what’s with black women putting their dead kids in freezers. Why do they have freezes if they aren’t storing food in them!!??
