Leilani Simon: Missing Quinton Simon's mom says she is the 'BAD GUY' in creepy video on social media
CHATHAM COUNTY, GEORGIA: The mother of missing Georgia toddler, Quinton Simon, who is named as the prime suspect for her son's disappearance by the police, said she is the "bad guy" in a TikTok video in 2020. On October 5, Quinton, 20 months old, vanished from his Chatham County home where he lived with his grandmother, mother and her boyfriend. Police authorities said that they believe that the toddler is dead as they were unable to find him after a week of "exhaustive" search. There is still a glimmer of hope as his body has still not been found.
“What I can say is the evidence we have so far based on multiple search warrants and interviews have led us to the conclusion that Quinton is deceased", said Chief Jeff Hadley on Thursday, October 13. Quinton's mother, Leilani Simon, 22 has not been arrested yet by the police and is reported missing shortly after she was named as the suspect in the case. No one knows her exact whereabouts as of now.
People who are infuriated with Leilani, have commented on her old TikTok video from 2020. Leilani is lip-syncing to the song 'Bad Guy' by Billie Eilish in the video. The lyrics are, "I'm the bad type. Make your mama sad type. Make your girlfriend mad tight. Might seduce your dad type. I'm the bad guy, duh." Leilani sang the song while using a creepy filter that made her eyes appear black in the unsteady creepy video.

One commenter said, "well if this ain't the most accurate tiktok I've ever seen." Another person wrote, "Most appropriate song ..." Other viewers called her names like "demon,", "killer," and "devil." Police however have not revealed why they consider Leilani as the only suspect in the "potential" murder case of Quinton Simon. The 22-year-old also reportedly had a history of substance abuse and even tried to 'overdose' in front of children, her ex boyfriend claimed, according to MEAWW.

Chief Hadley said that they have not arrested Quinton's mother as "we will only do that when we feel we have everything we need.” Former FBI agent Jennifer Coffindaffer told The Sun, that Leilani is not believed to be a flight risk but they will likely keep her under strict surveillance. "They don't want to have a death investigation and a fugitive investigation at the same time," Coffindaffer said.
Even though Quinton's body has not yet been discovered, Hadley said his search will continue "with every available resource we have."
