Joaquin Rams has finally been put behind bars, after the criminal mastermind took out a $500,000 insurance policy on his son before killing the 1-year-old during a supervised visit, authorities say.
Rams has apparently been surrounded his whole life by suspicious circumstances, where family members around him kept dying in suicides or mysterious circumstances. Each time, Rams collected an insurance payout.
Now, the mother of the murdered 1-year-old is suing the psychologists that allowed Rams to have a supervised visit with the baby. She knew that Rams was not of sufficient mind, but psychologists somehow deemed him fit to spend unsupervised time with the child.
“Either he’s the most unlucky bastard on this planet, or he’s a killer,” Hera McLeod, the child’s mother, said.

Although Rams was only on trial for his son, the deaths of two other people in his life were suspicious in their own right.
Prosecutors were barred from presenting evidence about the deaths of his ex-girlfriend Shawn Mason, and his mother Alma Collins. His mother died in 2008, with her death ruled a suicide.
Life insurance was involved in all three deaths. Rams collected more than $150,000 after his mother’s death, and he tried to collect on a policy in Mason’s death but was denied.
Prince’s mother, Hera McLeod, fled from the relationship with Rams when the baby was just two weeks old. McLeod begged a judge not to allow Rams unsupervised visits with their son, but the judge ordered them anyway.
“Either he’s the most unlucky bastard on this planet, or he’s a killer,” McLeod said.
Rams claims that Prince died after a fever-induced seizure during the fourth visit that Rams had without supervision.
Prosecutors said that he came up with a plan to murder Prince after he began running out of money from his mother’s death. He took out three separate policies on his son worth more than $500,000. There’s no explanation for why three different insurance companies didn’t find it suspicious to take out $500,000 life insurance policies on a 1-year-old.
Medical experts agreed with prosecutors and said that fever-inducted seizures, which are common in children that are Prince’s age, are not fatal. One medical examiner ruled Prince’s death to be the result of drowning but a different medical examiner disagreed and said that it was undetermined.
Joaquin Rams will be sentenced to life in prison.
