A teenage mother in the UK let her baby die while partying for a week across the country, according to reports.
Verphy Kudi’s daughter Asiah was just 20 months old. An autopsy showed he died of hunger, dehydration and the flu, according to a report.
Kudi, from Brighton, had traveled up to 150 miles away to celebrate her 18th birthday when she left the girl, who died alone in December 2019.
Kudi admitted to committing manslaughter this week in a British court.
The tragedy has prompted “a serious review of the case” by local and national officials, according to the media.
Kudi once tweeted about her desire to be a Pretty Little Things model. The day he returned home to his daughter, he had posted on Twitter trying to sell three tickets to a Lil Durk concert that day.
Kudi’s sister, in a YouTube video posted in October months before the young mother’s guilty plea, denied knowing that the baby was left alone.
“No one in my family knew about that headline,” the sister said, referring to local reports. “I pray that my niece receives the justice she deserves.”
“My heart is so broken,” Kudi’s father, Muba Kudi, told reporters after the hearing. “My daughter was missing. She had been missing since she was 14. “
