The video to the right is very hard to watch. The Video is taken by Matthew Krpata, who stands and watches Michelle Elkins (Thanks Eyewitness News) abuse his children. It has been claimed that he is recording the incident on video for evidence, however it was later reported that court records indicated he never reported the child abuse. The full video lasted about 10 minutes, the video to the right shows the most important parts. At one point in time the woman strikes his child in the head with a metal object which appears to be a large spoon.
The video has been removed from youtube and facebook, but we still have it here.
What we know so far
- Wyou Eyewitness news was the first to report this story. They did a lot of research and found out what the truth was.
- The woman in the video appears to be Michelle Elkins of Effort Pennsylvania. She used the Alias Michelle Morton on her Facebook Page
- The Police did arrest her
- Matthew has since moved to Kentucky
- Matthew Uploaded the video in 2015, claims it happened in 2014, we have screenshots showing possible evidence of abuse dating back to 2013.
- The other woman in the video is being confused with the woman who abuses the child, this woman is Krista, the woman abusing the child is Michelle
Warning: Video below is disturbing
We blurred the faces of the children to protect their identity. If for whatever reason the above video player doesn’t work on your device, try clicking the link below, it is in MP4 format, and should work on any smartphone/tablet:
Matthew and Michelle (This is the woman)
Supporters of Matthew have claimed he records the video to get evidence because “nobody would believe him” however, court records indicated the abuse was never reported. Michelle Elkins was charged and sentenced. She received 2 years probation, she has to pay supervision fees, she has to take all her medications, and she is not allowed around children, even her own, without adult supervision. It appears that Matthew has since moved to Kentucky with Krista. Krista is the other woman in the video who is yelling at Michelle Elkins.
This is what Matthew posted on his facebook, he failed to mention the part about “she’s not allowed around children, even her own, without adult supervision.”
- If the Incident Happened in 2014 and we have a screenshot of Michelle Morton saying she was going to “Kill the kids” in 2013, one has to wonder how long this abuse went on?
- Court Records indicate that Matthew never reported the abuse. How long did it go on for, and if this is true, why didn’t he report it?
Post from Michelle in 2013, the video above happened in 2014.

Wyou Eyewitness News was the first to cover this on 6/17/2015.
The facebook comments on Krista’s facebook profile were extremely useful in figuring out what really happened here. This shows you how important it is to screenshot and investigate when you see something this severe. Since this video started to go viral, it has been removed several times from youtube and facebook. Had the people on this profile not of screenshotted and investigated, none of the evidence on this page would be here.
