Jessica Pasho Says She Just Wants Baby Levon Wameling To Be Found, Wants To Talk With Amy Warney
Jessica Pasho is the woman who lived with Jevon Wameling for “a couple of years,” and the mother of the baby girl who died in 2005. She says her association with Jevon Wameling should not be the focus of the story of missing baby Levon Wameling.
She says she just wants Baby Levon to be found and, if possible, spend a few minutes talking with Amy Warney, Levon’s mom.
She says her own baby was found sleeping in between her and Jevon, not on her chest. She acknowledges that Jevon has a troubled past but said that nothing gave her any idea that he would be capable of hurting her children. She would never have stood for that, and would not have been with someone whom she thought was capable of that.
Jevon has not been implicated in any wrongdoing in either case, and has not been detained by police as a suspect. However, questions remain as to why Javon, Levon’s father, waited two weeks before reporting the fact that the baby was missing to authorities.
Pasho says that she is “not pushing for [police] to re-open” her case, but if they want to she is ok with that. She did not want to go to the news because it is about Levon. She wants to do whatever she can to help find the baby.
Pasho says she is reliving her own nightmare, and is trying to protect her children from having to deal with news reports of missing Baby Levon as well as the memory of losing their sibling. Her twelve-year old daughter sees Facebook postings, for example, and Pasho does not want her to be traumatized. She says for that reason she is considering taking down her own Facebook page. [EDITORIAL NOTE: It is for that reason that WIBX is not posting family photos of the Pasho or Wameling children in our coverage.] She says that she is pretty certain that by now everyone knows who she is, and it is too late to protect her own identity.
She says as a mom she cannot imagine what Amy Warney is going through, not knowing where her baby is. She wants the focus off of her own story and onto finding Baby Levon. She says she will do anything she can to help, but she does not believe that there is anything that she can do.
When asked if she had any suspicions about Jevon, or about his background, she said she did not at the time. She said that others had raised warnings about Jevon, and later agreed that in hindsight there may have been warning signs, but said she did not acknowledge anything unusual at the time.
Pasho says she has had no recent contact with Wameling and does not know the places he frequents, or his current friends. She lived with him for a couple of years, and nothing gave her cause for suspicion or reason for her to be concerned.
Pasho said she is protective of her children and Wameling was never abusive. If anything, she says, he was indifferent toward them.
Although the fact that Jevon did not report that the child was missing for two weeks he is not an official suspect in any wrongdoing at this time. Pasho says we really do not know what happened, and people are coming to their own conclusions.
Pasho said she has seen Wameling “here or there,” but does not speak with him.
She wants to be there to help Amy Warney, if she can, but respects Warney’s wishes. She wants Amy to know that if she wants to talk, she is available. She reiterated that she wants the media focus to remain on Amy and Levon, not her. Earlier in our interview she had said that originally she had no intention of speaking with the media, but felt she had to after reports of her association with Jevon had surfaced.
Pasho says she is worried about her older daughter from whom she is trying to shield some of this information. She is almost twelve years old, and she has already had to deal with the loss of her sister, and Pasho does not want her to have to deal with this as well.
In the meantime, the search for Levon Wameling continues.
