Mom who beat her son to death: ‘He’s gone and it’s all my fault’
By Abigail Gepner and Laura Italiano
January 28, 2017 | 2:15pm | Updated

Zarah Coombs and Zamair Coombs

She admitted to bludgeoning her little boy to death with a broomstick — and on Saturday on Rikers Island, she wept inside a prison of guilt and grief of her own making.

“He’s gone and it’s all my fault,” Brooklyn mother Zarah Coombs sobbed in a jailhouse interview. “My life is over.”

“Nothing will ever be the same. My baby is gone,” she said of her son, Zamair, 4, the second eldest of her four children.

Zamair — who loved Barney and Spider-Man and always kissed his two little brothers good night — died in a Brooklyn hospital on Thursday, the victim, cops said, of his own mother’s wrath.

On Wednesday night, she beat her child repeatedly with a broomstick, and left him to die in a plastic storage bin half-filled with water, which she was using as a makeshift bathtub, police said.

Coombs, 26, is now on suicide watch and waiting trial on charges of murder and possession of a weapon.

In a free-ranging and emotional interview, Coombs — dressed in a gray jumpsuit, her hair down in long, twisting locks — welled up with tears as she remembered the boy whose short life she snuffed out.

“He loved food — he wanted to be a chef,” Coombs said.

“He called you a meatball and a chicken nugget — that was his way of saying he loved you.”

She blames her rage on post-partum depression, and said she can’t remember actually striking Zamair, claiming the memory is “blacked out.”

The last thing she does recall is a crescendo of noises from inside the family’s dank basement apartment in Brownsville.

The TV was blaring, both her one-month-old and her one-year-old boys were crying, and Zamair was trying to help her make lunch.

“I just heard noise,” Coombs said.

“Noise from my own head. TV. Crying.”

After her “blackout,” Zamair was still alive.

“He was humming,” Coombs remembered.

“He looked at me, but he didn’t say anything.

“I said, ‘OK, baby. Let’s get you in a warm bath.’”

“I’m sorry,” she said she told the boy.

“I love you, Zamair.”

Coombs said she lay Zamair down for a bath in storage bin.

She then went to breastfeed her one-month-old, during which she fell asleep.

She was awoken by her boyfriend — the children’s father — who had returned home from work to find the boy still in the tub, but unconscious.

“He went under!” the boyfriend told her.

“And I said, ‘What do you mean, under? There’s barely any water. There’s nothing to go under.’”

They called 911, and the boyfriend meanwhile gave Zamair CPR, she said, the boy coughing out water, food, mucous.

Doctors at the hospital revived him three times, she said — to no avail.

“I lost it,” she says of striking the boy.

“That was a panic attack … if I could have banged my head any harder and banged it open [instead of striking Zamair] I would have done it,” she said.

Now, “Every time I close my eyes, I see his face, hear his voice,” she said, sobbing.

“I just talk to him all night.”

Zamair’s murder is the latest in a series of at least nine child abuse deaths currently under investigation by the city’s Department of Investigation.

In Zamair’s case, the city’s Department of Investigation says Administration of Children’s Services investigated two previous abuse allegations against the family in 2015, but both were determined to be unfounded.

“If I had just called 911 before I put him in tub he’d still be alive. My kids would have been taken from me, but Zamair would still be alive,” she said.
Those who find the truth hateful just hate hearing the truth.

Mother To Be Charged With Murder After 5-Month-Old Boy Dies Inside Tioga Home, Sources Say
By CBS3 Staff
September 7, 2019 at 10:45 pm

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — A mother will be charged with murder in connection to the death of her 5-month-old boy, Philadelphia police sources say. Sources and internal documents say the Philadelphia’s District Attorney’s Office approved a murder charge, but the suspect has yet to be arraigned.

Police sources say the mother allegedly admitted to investigators that she beat her boy with objects in his room of their home on the 1600 block of West Erie Avenue in the city’s Tioga neighborhood. The boy had bruising to his face and neck area, according to police sources.

The boy was found unresponsive just before 9:30 a.m. in his bedroom on the third floor of a shared apartment-style home on Saturday. He was pronounced dead just minutes later.

Neighbors say the mother moved into the building around March.

“When I came out there were police in front of my door, police down the street and an ambulance,” neighbor Russell Turner said. “It’s just a tragedy that it happens in our neighborhood.”

After the baby was found unresponsive, neighbors saw the boy’s mother with police.

“She was outside the house, out on a cellphone. She was out on a cellphone. She didn’t really have no more cry, no tears in her emotion yet, but it’s coming,” neighbor Lawrence Seals said.

Neighbors believe she called her sister earlier for help.

“I heard she called her sister that night it all happened and the sister didn’t get there until that morning,” Turner said.

As the community searches for answers, neighbors have begun grieving the life lost of an innocent baby boy.

“That’s sad. He didn’t even live his life yet,” neighbor Markeema Harrison said. “That’s not fair at all to that baby. I don’t know if the money has anything to do with it, but if she did, she deserves to go to jail.”

Authorities have not yet released the names of the mother or child.

The mother was on parole until 2022 on a previous conviction. She has 16 priors.
