Fabienne Kabou, 39, traveled to Berck-sur-Mer in France with her daughter, Adélaïde, in November 2013 and allegedly breastfed the child on the beach the night before leaving her near the water as temperatures were dropping and the tide was rising, The Guardian reports. The girl's body was found the next day, but Kabou had already left the town. She told authorities she chose that specific town because "even the name sounded sad."
"I stopped at one point. She gave a small jump as if she'd just woken up. She was looking for my breast, I gave it to her," she told authorities, according to French media reports. "I remained standing and I clutched her against me and then, I don't know, I said: 'No, no, no.' I couldn't stop saying 'no,' I don't know why. I cried. It was as if I was saying to someone: 'I can't do something like that,' but I did it."
