Now she has under her belt at least two suicides as a result of her on-the-air rants:
Medrano admitted to drinking a fifth of vodka in the hours leading up to her son's death, according to the criminal complaint. Medrano also told police she had gone to bed at midnight, but woke at 3 a.m. and fed the baby formula. She woke three more times and spoke with her other children, but did not leave the couch.
A preliminary blood-alcohol test by police showed Medrano at .11 percent. The legal limit for driving is .08 percent.
About a week after she was charged, flame-throwing CNN talk-show host Nancy Grace featured the case on her show. Grace held up a fifth of cheap vodka and said she was going to see how many glasses she could get out of the bottle.
She poured at least nine as the words "vodka mom" appeared on the screen.
Grace said during the show that she had attempted to contact Medrano at her house. She then spoke to a reporter from her show and two officials unfamiliar with the case as she theorized that Medrano had been sleeping on her child for hours. "There was a long period of time that baby's life could have been saved," Grace said.
Why she is still on the air after this is a mystery to me. She already had gotten into trouble over Melinda Duckett's suicide. There is no accounting for taste, I guess, when there is money to be made.
