This one is weird. Trinity Shakespeare is a woman from Nebraska who would give birth on the streets of Omaha and proceeded to walk away leaving the newborn behind. According to police reports Trinity Shakespeare was witnessed by a bunch of people giving birth to a little boy and then would be long gone before police showed up leaving the newborn child on the cold Omaha streets. Trinity Shakespeare has been arrested and has been charged with child abuse. Now Trinity Shakespeare was not alone as a number of good citizens came to her aid and wrapped her up in blankets and even called an ambulance, which Shakespeare refused to get into. Like I said this one is just plain weird. Needless to say the newborn boy is now in protective services.
