Mom Charged With Capital Murder

Narjes Modarresi First Reported Her Baby Son Kidnapped

HOUSTON — A mother who first said her 2-month-old son was kidnapped and
then led investigators to his body has been charged with his death, police
told KPRC Local 2 Friday.

Narjes Modarresi, 28, was charged with capital murder in the death of
Masih Golabbakhsh.

Court documents said she “knowingly caused the death by placing the baby’s
face down in mud and water.”

“The doctor performing the autopsy noted water and mud in the (baby’s)
lung, stomach and airway, concluding that (the baby) was alive prior to being
placed face down in the muddy water and buried,” a court official read in
court.

The Medical Examiner’s Office ruled the baby’s cause of death as
asphyxiation.

Modarresi did not appear in magistrate court Friday morning because
authorities said she is at the Woman’s County Jail undergoing a mental
evaluation.

Houston police issued an Amber Alert for Masih Wednesday after his mother
reported that he was snatched from his stroller in the 8000 block of
Woodway Drive, near Briar Bend Park, at about 5:30 p.m.

Detectives said they questioned the mother and her story was inconsistent.

At about 2 a.m. Thursday, the mother led officers to Masih’s body, which
was found in a muddy stream near where she said he was abducted, police
said.

Officials said the couple also has a 3-year-old, who has been placed with
relatives.

Relatives said Modarresi was from Iran and was learning to speak English.
She has only been in the United States for a few years, family members
said.

Her family said Modarresi was depressed and on medication.

George Parnham was hired as Modarresi’s attorney. Parnham is best known
for defending Andrea Yates, 45, who drowned her five children on June 20,
2001, while she suffered from postpartum depression.

Dr. Richard Pesikoff, with the Baylor College of Medicine, said there are
three levels of depression — the third level being most severe —
postpartum depression with psychotic features.

“Not only are you severely depressed, but your ability to tell the
difference between what’s real and what’s not real is lost. At this point, you
hear stories about mothers who kill their children,” Pesikoff said.

Pesikoff is not treating Modarresi.

WITHDRAWAL WARNING: In sharing this information about adverse reactions to antidepressants I always recommend that you also give reference to my CD on safe withdrawal, Help! I Can’t Get Off My Antidepressant!, so that we do not have more people dropping off these drugs too quickly – a move which I have warned from the beginning can be even more dangerous than staying on the drugs!

You can even get a whole month of access to the withdrawal CD with tips on rebuilding after the meds, all six of my DVDs, hundreds of radio interviews, lectures, TV interviews I have done over the years PLUS my book on antidepressants with more information than you will find anywhere else for only $30 membership for a month (that is only $5 more than the book alone would cost) at www.drugawareness.org. (Definitely the best option to save outrageous postage charges for those out of the country!)
