Tyler Police Department officers arrested Fowler on Monday, March 7 and was held in the Smith County Jail. She has release later that day after applying for a $200,000 bond.

According to an affidavit probable cause obtained by Tyler CBS/CW KYTX affiliate, Fowler worked as a night nurse for the victim, when she was caught on film treating the child as a “rag doll”. The victim, who was functionally immobile and unable to speak, is believed to have hip dysplasia and kidney failure.

The victim’s day nurse is said to have suspected Fowler after noticing a wound to the victim’s dominant right arm. Each Tyler ABC/Telemundo KLTV affiliate, the nurse said he knew something was wrong when he saw that the girl wasn’t sucking her right thumb like most of the time. The nurse told the mother, who also noticed that her daughter’s right arm was just “at her side.” Both the mother and the day nurse reported also noticing some bruising on her daughter’s arm.

The day nurse reportedly examined the girl’s arm while the mother reviewed footage from a Nest surveillance camera she had installed inside her daughter’s room. While viewing the recordings, the mother said she had seen multiple instances of Fowler physically abusing her daughter in a series of gruesome ways.

The mother is said to have witnessed Fowler abusing her daughter “by tying her hands behind her back on the bed, by dropping her legs forcefully during diaper changes, which affected the child’s hips and by extending your arms over the crib mattress, place a mattress pad. pillow on the arm and press down hard to hurt the child”, KLTV said.

The recordings also allege Fowler “thrown the child from the end of the bed to the headboard” and “pushed the girl’s right arm behind her head and pressed it repeatedly,” according to KYTX.

In documents filed in Smith County Court, police said the content of 45 of the 53 videos was “very disturbing”.

In addition to the physical abuse, Fowler intentionally disconnected an alarm attached to the child’s heart rate monitor to alert caregivers when the child was in pain, in pain or in need of medical attention. .

Investigators said it was clear Fowler knew her conduct was wrong based on alleged efforts to hide what she had done to the victim from her mother. In the videos, when the victim’s mother can be heard approaching the room, Fowler is said to have “rushed” to the girl’s crib, untied her limbs and used her mobile phone flashlight to make sure. The joints do not leave any traces.

Fowler told investigators she had been a nurse for about six years and a registered nurse for about three years. The day nurse also reviewed Nest tapes and told police that Fowler’s treatment of the little girl was “extremely rough and inappropriate.”
