Quinton Simon: Mother of Missing, Presumed Dead Toddler Complained About Parenting Struggles, Called Herself the ‘Bad Type’ on Social Media
Leilani Simon, the mother of missing Georgia toddler, Quinton Simon, and the prime suspect in his disappearance, took to TikTok in 2020 and implied parenting struggles while along to the “Bad Guy” song by Billie Eilish.
As previously reported, Simon reported 20-month-old Quinton missing on October 5; she said her current boyfriend saw the child at about 6 a.m. in the family’s Savannah home.
Later, when Simon woke up, Quinton was gone, according to what she told a 911 dispatcher. She made the 911 call shortly after 9:30 a.m., telling the dispatcher she found the door open, although Quinton isn’t able to open the door by himself.
“Thinks someone came in and took him,” the dispatcher told responding officers. Police launched an extensive search of the area, calling in help from other nearby jurisdictions as well as the FBI. As of October 17, Quinton remains missing but police said earlier this month that the child is presumed dead.
Leilani’s Complained about Parenting Woes on TikTok
Two years ago, Leilani called herself the “bad type” in TikTok videos posted online. “I’m that bad type. Make your mama sad type. Make your girlfriend mad tight. Might seduce your dad type. I’m the bad guy, duh,” Quinton sang in a video that has since gone viral.
In a separate TikTok video, Simon reportedly implied she struggled with parenting duties. Simon participated in a challenge on TikTok, which asked participants to place “one finger down” when answering “yes” to any of the questions.
