Small Problem

A father killed his three-year-old son Bastien by putting him in a washing machine and turning it on. He called emergency services, saying he had a 'small problem' as his son had fallen down the stairs. However the victim's older sister, then five, told the doctor: 'Daddy put Bastien in the washing machine because he was naughty at school.' The mother said that when her ex-husband removed Bastien from the washing machine and noticed he was no longer breathing he said: 'At least he won't bother us anymore.'
