Cop Charged in Death of Baby Daughter after Raising $17,000 for Funeral Expenses

A New Jersey cop was arrested Wednesday in the death of his infant daughter seven months ago for which more than $17,000 has since been raised on Go Fund Me for funeral expenses.

Ewing Township police officer Daniel Bannister was charged with murder. His wife, Catherine Bannister, the girl’s mother, was charged with child endangerment.

Baby Hailey was only three months old when she was killed but prosecutors determined through an autopsy she had been the victim of an ongoing pattern of abuse in her short lifetime. The baby died from a fractured skull, bleeding in the brain and multiple fractured ribs, according to the Trentonian.

The Bannisters capitalized on the death of their daughter by raising $17,618 for funeral expenses on Go Fund Me, even though funeral costs rarely exceed $10,000.

Catherine Bannister also announced via Facebook earlier this year that she was planning on starting a memorial foundation honoring her daughter called “Hailey’s Hope,” intended to help “other babies live,” according to The Trentonian.

But now the baby’s mother is facing up to ten years in prison and her husband is facing 30 years to life for the murder charge.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
