Hoax Alert! Granny DID NOT Eat Newborn While on Meth

Fact Check

  • by: Perry Sanders III


A grisly hoax is making the rounds once again. This is a fake story about a 'Gretchen Schneider', a 64-year old grandmother from New Jersey who was babysitting her four-week old granddaughter while her own daughter ('Amber Williams') went on a dinner date with her husband. But the horror-granny was under the influence of drugs when she allegedly ate the little baby.

We have already covered this story once before, only this time it was TMZ World News who published the identical article with "bath salts" substituted for "meth".

Analysis of the photo that was used with the story reveals the mugshot to be from a before-after montage of meth users, specifically picture 18 in this gallery, while the crime scene was taken from a story about a home intruder shot by the owner in Jonestown, Ohio.
