Baby P's monster mom Tracey Connelly gets Covid-19 vaccine in jail as she's 'on vulnerable list' for obesity
'She was on the vulnerable list so she’s had the jab... But she’s certainly not as vulnerable as the child who died in her care,' a source revealed
Tracey Connelly, mother of 17-month-old "Baby P," who was tortured to death while in her care in 2007, has been vaccinated for coronavirus on a priority basis. Reports say she was classed as a "vulnerable" inmate for weighing over 20 stone (280 lbs). The 39-year-old was given her first shot after being called up by the HMP Low Newton staff in County Durham.
According to The Sun, a source revealed, "She was on the vulnerable list so she’s had the jab. There’s no picking and choosing from the jail. She’s eligible so there you are. But she’s certainly not as vulnerable as the child who died in her care."
This comes after the Prime Minister's official spokesperson insisted that there was no question of inmates receiving the vaccine early, before others in society. "That is obviously not the case and is not true," the spokesman had said. "Prisoners won't be prioritized for vaccines."
"They are vaccinated at the same time as the general public in line with the JCVI prioritization groups, no quicker than that." Connelly is serving an indefinite sentence at County Durham.
A look back at the Baby P case
For those unaware, Connelly watched porn while drunk while her lover, Steven Barker, and his brother Jason Owen, tortured and killed Peter aka "Baby P", her 17-month-old son. Baby P was found dead in his blood-stained cot at his mother's flat in Tottenham in 2007.
Connelly admitted to the offense and was jailed for five years before being freed on license in 2013. However, she was recalled back to prison two years later when she sent indecent pictures of herself to perverts "obsessed with her notoriety."
Steven Barker was jailed for 12 years for the Baby P case and was also slapped with a life sentence for the rape of a two-year-old girl. Jason Owen was also jailed indefinitely and was ordered to serve three years minimum.
When Connelly was originally freed, reports said she begged for an anonymity order and police protection but was refused both. The death of the toddler sent shockwaves through Britain. Baby P's tiny body had suffered well over 50 injuries before he died, including gruesome injuries like two missing fingernails, a missing toenail, a tear to his ear as well as marks — possibly from a dog's teeth — in his scalp. Owen and Barker were found guilty while the mother pleaded guilty for Baby P dying in her care.
The Sun also said her case was considered by the parole board for a third time in 2019 after previous reviews in 2015 and 2017 respectively. According to the Express, Connelly was vaccinated after 14,480 prisoners across 127 prisons have tested positive for Covid since the start of the pandemic.
Anna Motz, a consultant clinical psychologist, in an interview with The Guardian, said: "In cases like this there is often this early experience of abuse and trauma and neglect in the mother's background. What I see happening is that the mother can develop a narcissistic attitude or way of relating to their child as an extension of themselves and goes on to treat the child with the cruelty, contempt and neglect that they were exposed to themselves. Their norms are different from other people."
