BREAKING NEWS: Gay fitness instructor is found GUILTY of murdering the 18-month-old daughter he adopted just two weeks before

A gay fitness instructor accused of shaking his 18-month-old baby to death just a fortnight after he adopted her was today convicted of her murder.
Matthew Scully-Hicks, 31, shook Elsie Scully-Hicks before she was 'thrown against a hard floor' while he was looking after her at his home in Llandaff, Cardiff, on May 25 2016.  
Elsie died just two weeks after she was formally adopted by fitness instructor Scully-Hicks and his husband Craig, 36.
Scully-Hicks, who sobbed when he was convicted, denied murdering her but was found guilty by a jury after a four week trial.
Cardiff Crown Court heard Scully-Hick branded her 'a psycho', 'the exorcist' and 'Satan dressed up in a Babygro' in text messages and she had suffered a string of suspicious injuries before eventually killed her.
The jury of nine men and three women went out last Wednesday but returned a unanimous guilty verdict shortly after midday today.
Social services in Cardiff face an investigation over whether they missed chances to save Elsie, who suffered a catalogue of injuries - including bruises, a broken leg and a fall down a full flight of stairs in the eight months Scully-Hicks had care of her.

She died four days after being violently shaken and sustaining a fractured skull just two weeks after being formally adopted by the defendant and his husband.
On the day of Elsie's death, Scully-Hicks took her shopping for an outfit for her to wear at a party to celebrate her adoption with family and friends. 
He sent pictures of outfits at Marks & Spencer to his husband and purchased one for Elsie to wear.
But instead he shook her and then threw her to the ground, leaving his daughter fatally injured.

Always in these cases its the social workers who failed yet again. I'm sick of social workers being paid to do a job they so obviously cannot do.

They go get a 'degree' and that suddenly makes them qualified to fuck around with people's lives.   A degree means sweet bugger all when you have no common sense.

Exactly HT. Degrees mean nothing when they can't understand how to do their job.

One would think, unless there are genuine reasons why a baby or young child cant be cared for by grandparents, or any other responsible family member, the very last resort would be to take the child away from the environment they know and feel comfortable in, and give it away to strangers.

Why is the family, if they love that child, not given the support and help to enable them to stay together?

Probably ageist shit.

Probably, but I was a grandparent in my 40,s, as are many others, still fit and active.
But even if the grandparents are a lot older and not as active, they may not be able to play football or have the same energy, but they have lots of love to give.
