After receiving an e-mail from someone claiming to
be Jaidon's mother, I did some research and was
able to find that in July of 2012 Latasha Honeycut
was found not guilty in the death of Jaidon.
I also received the same update from another
woman, thank you Rebecca for your help with this

After receiving an e-mail from someone saying they
are the daughter of Donna Lynn Phillips and that I
had this story all wrong. I did a bit more
research and found out that Donna died on February
20, 2017. No information was given in her obituary
to indicate her cause of death.
I have received several e-mails at this point,
from a man claiming to be Donna's son. First of
course, was threatening me to sue for the lies I
told in this story. As always, I have offered the
son and daughter of Donna the opportunity to tell
their side of this story and both have declined to
do so. I have three e-mails from the son, sitting
in my mail box, I have read one so far and he
informed me that I lied and I will face God some
day. He also said I had the state of death wrong,
he though the "Death occurred in the state of"
sentence applied to his mother, it does not, it
applies to his son and I have corrected it.
I was also informed that Donna died in a prison
infirmary, that makes my heart hurt for her, it
truly does. I was under the impression that
serious cases were transferred to a hospital, I
guess I was incorrect with that assumption. I was
told by this man that he hopes I burn for telling
lies. He claims that Jaidon died due to the
actions of Latasha, even though none of the
substances found in his system were any of the
drugs she allegedly did. If the truth of these two
people, the children of Donna is so important to
be told, why tell it to only me? Why not
tell it for the world to read? I do not
understand, but I don't have to. The truth is in
the autopsy and lab results, this child died from
ingesting a medication found in his grandmothers
home, not the home of his mother.
I am currently in e-mail contact with the Father
and Aunt of Jaidon. I have been asked to remove
his page from my site as it has no actual facts,
in their opinion. Insisting that Latasha Honeycutt
and was responsible for the death of Jaidon due to
the fact that she is addicted to drugs and abuses
them, I was told Latasha and her boyfriend Brandon
were just arrested for drug use, though I am
unable to find anything online about it, I will
continue to search.
I have read everyone news story about this that I
can find, I have read court records and more, I am
being told by the son that he has proof or someone
who has proof about what really happened. I am
waiting to see if that proof will be provided or
not. I have, ONCE AGAIN, offered to allow these
two individuals to tell their truth, their side of
this story, I have stated I will leave it exactly
as they type it and let them say what they need to
say. Neither of the two siblings has taken me up
on my offer for them to tell their story.
I am providing this link for anyone who wants to
read about the court case:
