Child Porn Suspect Kills Himself

A Clinton man arrested for child pornography last month killed himself last Thursday. Police found the body of 73 year-old Terry Baum in the back yard of his Clinton home. He died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

The Attorney General arrested Baum on May 10 for possession of child pornography. He was arrested and released on a $500,000 bond.

What happens to the bail bond paid to release him?

What happens to the bail bond? Buyer beware! No one should have spent a dime on bailing him out. He would've been safer behind bars.

Normally in cases like this the court releases the bond to the bonding agency.

Yep. Bail Bondsman made an easy, and tidy little sum.

All of this talk about bail bonding. Never knew how they made money. Seems odd.

Good riddance, sicko! I know, I know, we are supposed to pray for his soul and all, but I’ll leave that to his priest. Child abusers/exploiters deserve to be shot, and the noblest act of his sorry life was doing just that.

Anonymous said...

Technically he died an innocent man so there’s that.

i don't think anyone will be crying a river for this turd.

FWIW, this guy was a PROUD Atheist. So two things he would take back if he could now...

So many are worthy to throw stones. I’m sure he paid his own bail with his own money. Now his debt is paid.

1:42. Sorry--not all of us on here are child molesters. It's pretty evident to rational human beings that harming children is among the most vile things a person can do and those who do it don't deserve sympathy for what they have done.

Your first comment does make me wonder what's on your hard drive...

My typo error. The bondsman would make $50,000 if all the premium was collected. If bondsman put him on a credit plan good luck collecting anymore payments. The good thing is they want have anymore liability with this bond.

Correct, bondsmen charge 10% of the bail, and for large bail they will require collateral. This suspect is the sole owner of his home, which I suspect was the collateral for the bond.

If his home was collateral, the bondsman likely has a lien on it. When it is sold he will collect any monies owed.

I'm not understanding this bonding discussion. If, say, $1500 were paid to bond him out, how is it the bondsman would collect $50,000. Wouldn't a bondsman just collect the amount paid in bond?

Otherwise it pay for the bonding companies to kill off those out on bond.

Suicide by this scum saved taxpayers a kot of money. And kudos to the coroner for ruling three gunshots to the head as a suicide.

Looks like Baum also saved us from another of Jim Hood's self-serving press releases.

@5:05 " And kudos to the coroner for ruling three gunshots to the head as a suicide."

Please tell us where you gleaned this information. Perhaps because you were involved pulling the trigger?

A sin is a sin...

@ 5:49: That is poor theology and poor logic. If I say I caught a six pound bass when it was only a five pound bass, that does not equal the rape and murder of a two year old girl.

There are degrees of sin. Judaism, Christianity, Islam and all major religions hold to this point as well as all secular law codes.

What difference does it make if he was an atheist? As with the bus driver accused by a child of fondling her....although this guy might have been guilty, and probably was, of possession, he was due his day in court. We're not quite at the point yet of surrounding the accused in a circle and each getting to throw twelve rocks at her/his head. We'll get there soon enough, though, if the open borders crowd and Muslim welcome wagon crowd have their way.

5:49 - So your argument is that child molestation is the same as stealing food or not honoring thy mother or father? Don't agree with you at all. And whoever said this man has paid his debt is a lunatic.

Anonymous said...

9:04 - The charge, for which he was out on bond, was possession of child pornography, not child molestation. And if YOU argue that they're the same, then YOU'RE the lunatic.

I THINK what some people are saying is: An :accusation" is just that....and accusation. It is not proof of ANYTHING. There are COUNTLESS examples of people being tried and convicted and serving decades in jail only to LATER be proven innocent of all charges. Why can't we just ASSUME the accused is innocent...or, at LEAST, innocent of any really serious transgression until such time as he has had his day in court and sufficient evidence is presented that all substantial doubt is removed??? We'd allow that for a person accused of murder...why not for a person accused of child molestation. And, from my perspective anyway, murder is a far worse crime than molestation. Yet, we let murderers walk TOTALLY free (no restrictions on where he lives or the job he holds...just FREE)after only a free years in jail...but a person convicted of a sexual crime is NEVER allowed freedom. He is restricted to where he can live, where he can go, where he can work...for the rest of his life. How is this logical? (And don't say "he will molest again". There is absolutely NO truth to that rumor. Dept of Justice statistics prove that a person first convicted of robbery is more likely to have a second offense related a sex crime than a person first convicted of a sex crime...who will, most likely, never commit ANY kind of crime after serving his sentence.)

4:55 PM you sir are full of bovine scatology. You are making it up as you go along.

If you so positive that sex offenders will not re-offend, please let a recently released from prison perv live with you.

Anonymous said...

I don't know if he might have reoffended or not. But if 4:55 is full of bull-shit, 5:57, what are YOUR sources?

I think the point here is that under our systems of laws, a man is innocent until proven guilty - unless the IRS is involved.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
