A Waynesboro woman was arrested after police investigating why a baby had cigarette burns on his body received an anonymous video allegedly showing her smacking the child 37 times, according to police.

Police investigation into Jessica Lynn Samick’s actions began March 15 when the child’s mother reported finding bruises and burns on the baby’s body after he was in Samick’s care for several days, according to court documents.

The mother told investigator’s Samick had been involved in the child’s life since birth and that she had watched the child before, which is why she allowed the woman to take her son on a trip for a few days, the affidavit of probable cause explains.

According to court documents, Samick had the child in her care on March 5 or March 6 until March 15 when the mother noticed a picture posted to Facebook of the child by Samick ‘seemed a little off.’

The mother explained the photo ‘seemed a little off’ because Samick allegedly put a sticker of a heart over the baby’s ear “as if to hide something,” investigators say.

Once the child was back in the care of his mother, she noticed he had several bruises and, what appeared to be, cigarette burns under his armpit, which prompted the mother to take him to the hospital.

Officers were called to the hospital and documented that they, too, noticed the injuries on the child’s body.

On April 9, an officer received a video from an anonymous source that allegedly showed the woman beating the child, according to court documents.

Court documents show two days later, officers interviewed the woman who recorded the video where she alleged Samick would lock the child in a closet, scratch his nose with her nails, squeeze him so hard as to leave nail marks in his back, bite him and smack him.

The woman also explained to officers that she was the person who recorded the video that allegedly showed Samick putting the baby across her legs and smacking his bare bottom, investigators say.

Investigators who watched the video stated in the affidavit of probable cause, the child could be heard crying and Samick could be heard saying “I’m about to beat the living [expletive] [expletive] out of you” before smacking the child in the face and making his mouth bleed.

The video also recorded Samick saying to the child “you got your [expletive] beat so many times today” before allegedly smacking the child an additional 37 times, investigators documented in the affidavit.

As a result of the investigation, on May 19, Samick was charged with one count of endangering the welfare of a child and one count of simple assault.

    I can’t lie if ever any one had or tried to do anything like this to my children I would be in jail because I would beat her ass no child deserves to be done like that she could have just left the child with its mother if she was going to abuse it smh bless that beautiful baby and I hope that the girl who harmed the baby gets her head kicked into a curb because those charges aren’t no where near severe enough for her to pay for what she done to that innocent child

    I’d probably lose my mind so there is no telling exactly what I’d do
