Takota Hasty
September 8, 2011 - April 8, 2013
Find A Grave Memorial

Takota Hasty was taken to the hospital with injuries that were consistent with child abuse, sadly, Takota would need to be put on life support. This is a story that has been told numerous times on my and other sites on the internet. A parent has a new "love interest" and in the end, the child is the one to suffer and many times, die.

Takota's family stayed at the hospital waiting for news about this precious baby boy.

Justin Hasty - Takota's Father

"I just hope he can pull through this, but right now they're saying it's like a miracle
it'll probably be a miracle if he does. There's burn on him, bruises from head to toe
and I know he was screaming and wanting help and he couldn't get it"

Takota was only 17 months old when Crystal Laural and Dustin Rybak, who were both 25 years old at the time, were arrested and charged with suspicions of allowing child abuse and child endangerment as well as felonious assault. That charge would be changed when Takota's family had to make the heartbreaking decision to remove life support and allow him to die a little before 5:00 p.m. on April 8, 2013.

Before they removed life support, Takota's father, Justin Hasty who had seen his son only ten days before and there didn't seem to be anything wrong with him, had said that Takota was now fighting for his life:

"His whole face is black and blue"

Site creators note: I hesitate to put pictures of this nature on my site, however, I was encouraged to do so in order to SHOW what happens to these children and how horrible it truly is in hopes that it will encourage people to make the calls necessary to help and NEVER give up looking for help.

Takota also suffered from burns all over his body, broken bones and bleeding on his brain. A Facebook page had been set up to get prayers and encouragement for Takota and was later changed to a memorial page, that page name is "Prayers For Takota".


It was reported that Justin had contacted the Children's Services in Montgomery county about bruises that he saw on
Takota and the Children's Services say that they did get a complaint from Justin, however, they were unable to locate
Crystal to check out the complaint. Justin said:

"I was just hoping if they did an emergency one he wouldn't be there right now"

Crystal has been to court before in 2008 when she was convicted of theft and Dustin had previously been arrested for
domestic violence in 2009 as well as possession of Heroin less than a year before Takota was killed:

"I would never dream they'd do this to such an innocent kid ever. He was such a sweet kid. He really was"
