Police found blood-stained baby wipes and pillow in Irish nanny murder probe
Neighbor heard infant crying and knocked on door to no response
A blood-stained baby wipe and pillow were discovered in the bedroom of the baby that Irish immigrant Aisling McCarthy Brady, (34), has been charged of assaulting.
Court records obtained by the Boston Globe show the blood-stained items were found in one-year-old Rehma Sabir’s crib. The one-year-old infant died on January 16 after she was admitted to hospital two days earlier.
The documents show a neighbor reported hearing the infant crying for almost 90 minutes on the day in question.
“By 8:36 a.m., [the neighbor] could hear the baby crying inside,’’ according to a summary of the case filed in Cambridge District Court.

“The crying continued and at around 9:30 a.m., the crying changed to extreme crying.”
According to prosecutors the concerned neighbor decided to check on the situation and went downstairs and knocked on the apartment door “for a minute and a half, timing the knocks and then pounds on the door in between the gasping so it would be heard by someone inside.”
However no one answered the door, so the neighbor went back upstairs.
“From her apartment, she heard the baby cry for ten more minutes,” prosecutors wrote. “It started to slow and settle down before stopping completely.”
According to doctors at Boston Children’s Hospital, the baby had sustained a number of injuries that were between two weeks and two months old. The infant had suffered fractures to her left ulna (elbow bone); her left tibia (shin bone) and left fibula (another leg bone) as well as compression fractures to her vertebra in multiple locations.
“Dr. Alice Newton, the medical director of Children’s Child protection team, diagnosed Rehma as a victim of abusive head trauma given the constellation of injuries and the absence of a history of major trauma such as a high impact motor vehicle collision,’’ prosecutors wrote.
When State Police checked the infant’s room on January 17, they found the blood stained materials and damage to the drywall.
“We noted the wall directly next to the changing table had a piece of drywall/plaster missing... consistent with it being damaged by forceful contact with the corner of the changing table,” State Police wrote.
Brady, originally from Moher, Ballyjamesduff, County Cavan, had been living in the United States for over a decade, after she overstayed her 90-day holiday visa.
