Fathers From Hell: Al-Mutahan Mclean tortured, raped and killed his 10-year-old son, Takoda Hayden Collins; Sentenced to 51 years to life in prison


Takoda Hayden Collins

This is one of the most horrific child abuse murders I have ever read about. I cannot fathom a father doing these things, especially raping your 10-year-old son. And his lawyer, while not exactly condoning it, downplayed it. I am still amazed by his words. For the record, your client is a MONSTER. And the “flaws and misguided bad acts” shows that responsibility has NOT been accepted. Raping your child is not a flaw or misguided. It is monstrous. It comes from evil. And your client is not a real father. A real father does not lock their child in an attic, beat the child, taser the child, or sexually assault their child. This child will always live in my heart.

Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro released a statement, saying:

“The charges this defendant is facing for a violent attack are deeply disturbing. Mr. Thomas is entrusted by the public to uphold the law and serve as a voice for victims. I commend the bravery of the victim that has come forward — that is never an easy thing to do, especially when your abuser is a powerful elected official.
