Melvin Morse Waterboarding: Delware Pediatrician Accused Of Waterboarding 11-Year-Old Daughter [Video]

The Delaware State Police have arrested a pediatrician and his wife after their 11-year-old daughter accused her father of waterboarding her as her mother stood by and watched.

Dr. Melvin Morse, 58, and Pauline Morse, 40, are facing abuse charges stemming from alleged incidents against their two daughters, ages 5 and 11.

Police learned of the alleged waterboarding July 12 when a neighbor called about a domestic dispute at the family’s Georgetown home.

According to the neighbor, Dr. Morse grabbed his 11-year-old by her ankle and dragged her across a gravel driveway. Once police arrived, Morse was arrested and charged with two counts of endangering the welfare of a child and one count of third-degree assault. He was later released after posting $750 secured bail.

WBOC reports that on August 6, the 11-year-old Morse girl was brought to the Child Advocacy Center where she was interviewed.

According to police reports, the girl informed detectives that over the course of a two-year period, beginning in May 2009, she was disciplined by her father by what he called waterboarding. Police said this act was performed on her by her father holding her face under a running faucet, causing the water to go up her nose and all over her face.

DelawareOnline.com reports the child said her father told her once he “was going to wrap her in a blanket and do it so that she could not move.” Another time she said he told her she “could go five minutes without brain damage.” The child told investigators she never knew what she had done to deserve such a punishment.

“Melvin would sometimes look away while he did it and [the girl] would become afraid that he would lose track of time and she would die,” police wrote in court documents.

This form of punishment was used on her no less than four different occasions, investigators said. Pauline Morse allegedly witnessed several of the punishment sessions but did nothing to help, police added.

Fox News reports that Dr. Melvin Morse was re-arrested on August 7 and now faces seven counts of reckless endangerment, child endangerment, and conspiracy. He remains in jail on $14,500 bail.

Pauline Morse faces the same seven counts but has been released on a bond of the same amount.

The two girls are in the care of the state Division of Family Services, Delaware Online reports.

  2. Dee Griswold

    You gotta be kiddin' me….$750 secured bail? He should loose his physician's license. I pray he NEVER gets to SEE his children again. They should put him in the same cell as Bubba…

  3. Jennifer Lynn Dodson

    sick fuck, he should be waterboarded multiple times until he dies. That bail is a joke'.

  4. Jana Roth Hamann

    I hope this man rots in hell and the mother too. what mother stands by and watches their kid get abused and doers nothing she should get the same punishment as the dad and they may be biological parents but they are not real parents there is a difference.

  6. Anna Crawford

    He deserves to have his head held under water and drug face down in the gravels! After he receives this punishment then he needs to be hung! At least locked up with no hope for ever seeing daylight again!

  7. Jana Roth Hamann

    I agree with all of u but what about the mother standing by and watching this and doing nothing zip zero notta thing. she should get the same as the dad for letting this go on if it were my kids or even my niece or nephews the people person guy whatever that did anything to them to harm them would be dead asap and id be in prison. and like I said before they may be the biological parents but they are not the real parents there is am difference. do u know the difference?

  8. Betty Lou Embry

    WHAT IS WRONG WITH THE LAW, WHEN SOMEONE CAN DO A CHILD LIKE THAT AND GET OUT ON 750 DOLLOR BOND THE LAW SUCKS. THERE's NO HELP FOR THE WEAK.

  9. Sheree Rogers

    AGREE!! $750 then $14,500 slap on the wrist? It needs to be AT LEAST $500K, give him time to think in lock-up, and oh yeah, call ALL of Bubba's friends and family!

  10. Sheree Rogers

    RIDICULOUSLY WAY TOO LOW for this wanna-be piece of trash! First $750, then $14,500 slap on the wrist? It needs to be AT LEAST $500K, give him time to think in lock-up, and oh yeah, call ALL of Bubba's friends and family!

  11. Sheree Rogers

    RIDICULOUSLY WAY TOO LOW for this wanna-be piece of trash! First $750, then $14,500 slap on the wrist? It needs to be AT LEAST $500K, revoke his license for everywhere in the world, give him time to think in lock-up, and oh yeah, call ALL of Bubba's friends and family! The wanna-be Mom deserves the same!

  12. Austin Wade Soulone

    People like this are why I don't believe in God. If this god thing really loves children, it would not allow this and all the other atrocities done to them. There is nothing your can say to change my mind so, what ever say is for you not me.

  13. Paula Kate Meserole

    To condemn an 11 year old child to a lifetime of PTSD as a result of her father's trying to drown her over and over again is criminal. This guy should be stripped of his medical license FOREVER and sent to prison for the rest of his life. His wife too… for standing by and doing nothing to save her children..

  14. Sheree Rogers

    Mr. AWS, I visited your page and of somethings I do agree… However, defying God is not one of them… I vote we have a prayer circle for you… and I still love you!

  15. Sheree Rogers

    Nope Colleen, he's a perverted sadist, with a pediatric license, which is even scarier. Don't worry, GOD HAS A SPECIAL PLACE IN HELL FOR THESE FOLKS! Can I get an AMEN???

  16. Mary K Thompson

    This is another example of laws that protect the offender rather than the victim. I'd bet the reason the judge didn't take away his medical license is because he/she couldn't. Someone would have to make a complaint to the AMA, I think.

    What makes him think that is an appropriate way to punish your child? I thought it was considered a form of torture and what about his wife standing by letting this kind of behavior continue… How sad that he is also a pediatrician. What is wrong with people?

  28. Garden OfHope

    I endured 21 years of waterboarding, hitting, mental abuse.. I was dragged on the asphalt when I was 20, by my hair, when I was 5 and I would have an accident I would have it rubbed in my face like a dog and placed under a cold shower face up, and the abuse never stopped when I left, despite trying multiple times to come to terms with my adoptive parents and forgiving them, they were hypocrites, and to this day lie to the family about me….. this is no way to grow up, in addition I was isolated rendering me incapable of making any social connections appropriately…….. I AM GLAD THEY ARE NO LONGER WITH THEIR PARENTS.

  29. Sheree Rogers

    Shot, and very wounded, and there ain't No hanging for this scum… you can't suffer if you're dead! My final thoughts… Can't fix stupid, and there ain't no rehab! Carry on!

  30. Sheree Rogers

    Not only a state, anywhere in the whole world! For him to resurface into the mainstream of life, would be waaaayyyyy to good for this creature… And to the guys who are in Prison with him… BUBBA, Call 'em in, and SADDLE UP!!! It's gonna be a party for him! Wooo Hooooooooo!

  32. Azieb Green

    that man should never be able to practice ANYWHERE! he should spend life in prison, his wife to! but a peditrician? uh there is no way in hell he should keep that title!

  33. Mandy Etienne

    sad ….just sad…..punish him, severe punishment, this is so sad. poor babies!!!!!!

  34. Louise Fadness

    Just because he's a pediatrician doesn't mean he AND his wife aren't mentally ill. Those children should be fostered to relatives and the parents put in prison for endangering the welfare of their kids. Next time (if there is one), he may be found guilty of murder.

  35. Candy Nolder

    His license to practice anywhere should be revoked and community service at a sewage plant for he and his wife cleaning sludge from a tank for 10 years would work for me…..take their money away….that is the only way to get someone's attention real quick, fast and in a hurry…..

  36. Ashley Hardin

    What children will say to get out of doing things they don't want to is ridiculous. CPS is WAY WAY WAY overboard! These poor kids are going to be in foster homes now, much past the age that anyone wants them and they will be raped and abused by other foster kids. Do you people not realize that CPS workers get PAID MORE MONEY when they remove children! Just because a child says they were abused does NOT make it so! Kids have imaginary friends, they talk to themselves, they say they flew through the air last night, all sorts of crap that isn't true.

  37. Travis Franzen

    wow, just makes ya wonder who your taking your kid to see for health advice huh? what a P.O.S Loser.

  38. Mary Jane Kelliher

    you can't even trust your neighbors, you have to really know your neighbors before you even think about your child to go over there. i lived in a time that we use to be able to run outside after a rainstorm (instant pools) we lived on a one way street so parents would switch duties to watch the kids (all the kids) on the street. I have a five year old and i won't let him go five feet ahead of me!! You just can't trust people. I guess pediatricians are no different!

  39. Travis Secondclass-Citizen Rogers

    I am as appalled as all of you over these horrific acts of child abuse. However, I think the JUDGE who set such a LOW BAIL needs to be brought to justice as well. Judges get away with all kinds of evil. Judges of America who think it's okay for people to get out of jail for 750$ after WATER BOARDING THEIR KIDS….. You are part of the problem and deserve life sentences in prison.

  40. Wanda Caldwell

    its where a person is held down.. face-up and has water constantly poured over there face to the point of almost drowning… its a tactic wrongly used in interrogation of prisoners/terrorists in order to make them talk.. usually a towel is placed over the face in order to make it even harder to breathe because of the water absorbed by the towel..

  41. Wanda Caldwell

    do YOU realize HOW MANY times CPS HAS NOT taken kids away from parents because they thought the kids were MAKING UP stories only to find out later, usually after serious injury or death of the children in question, that what the children had been telling them all along was true!!!

  42. Amanda Garrison

    "Water boarding as it is currently described involves strapping a person to an inclined board, with his feet raised and his head lowered. The interrogators bind the person's arms and legs so he can't move at all, and they cover his face. In some descriptions, the person is gagged, and some sort of cloth covers his nose and mouth; in others, his face is wrapped in cellophane. The interrogator then repeatedly pours water onto the person's face. Depending on the exact setup, the water may or may not actually get into the person's mouth and nose; but the physical experience of being underneath a wave of water seems to be secondary to the psychological experience. The person's mind believes he is drowning, and his gag reflex kicks in as if he were choking on all that water falling on his face."

    There ya go

  43. Christina McFarland

    Thanks guys I just watched a video on youtube where I guy was having it done to him to prove that is was torture, and I just cant belive that that man put his on 11 year old daughter through that. It gave me chills :(

  44. Ashley Hardin

    There just needs to be proof. Sure both happen, but there must be solid proof before action is taken.

  46. Carol Walton Keenan

    If they would just get rid of people like this that is in the world, it would be a better place. All the psychopath crazy jerks that do stupid, horrible stuff to their children and others must go! Not to jail! I mean get rid of the crazies! Put them on a different planet w/o oxygen. Something. The "SUN" is a good idea. That way they'll already be prepared for what lies ahead. And why is he allowed bail? Really!

  47. Mary Vance

    Pauline Morse is just as evil as her husband if you ask me! $14,500 bail, really?

  48. Madonna Moore

    this is by far taking disipline to a whole new level! who could do this to a child? I know I couldn't but I also know my ex was surely capable and maybe just maybe she was scared to do anything, if he did this to a child , imagine what he could have been doing with his wife….maybe just maybe she suffered some abuse too I know the feeling when you stand there watching feeling helpless but unlike her I would have interferred even if I would have suffered some of his wrath.

  49. Jana Roth Hamann

    i never thought that maybe the mother could have been abused as well but if she wasnt abused and just stood by she should get the same as that father in prison but if she was abused sorry for her as well that man is a monster.

  50. Rupert Smith

    This disgusting abusive piece of crap is also an ADOPTIVE FATHER for people that think adoption is safer, both of them should be subjected to the death penalty as well, shows how corrupt adoption is to let such monsters have kids.

  51. Rupert Smith

    They are both responsible agree, and they also adopted these kids, they are nutbags that should never have had children. Sandusky is another one and his wife that also adopted.

  52. Jerri Nicelady

    Kristy Monte i agree they should do the same to him and his poor excuse for a wife weak woman, and have his kids watch i would bring popcorn for that show damn bastard

  53. Rupert Smith

    Sorry to hear that, adoption has more abuse statistically – these pigs are also adopters, these are not their kids.

  54. Rupert Smith

    I wonder if this sick bastard bought the kids, as adoption is a scam overall, this man should share a cell with Sandusky the adoptive father pedophile.

  56. Linda Harrison

    I think he should be waterboarded repeatedly and then shot. He might beat the charge, get another wife and breed again. I cannot believe this guy…who knows how many have suffered at his hands. He is not fixable and he will do it againunless some jailhouse justice comes his way. SICK!!

  57. Jacqui Bell

    wtf? but if you see the bottom of the article it said he was re-arrested on 8/7 w/ $14,000 bail. Thats a bit better….. how do people come up with this sick shit?

    Yep, that's the guy I want to take my children to… NOT! He is a freak!

  60. Rose Fitzgerald

    This guy os a doctor? where the hell did he get his degree the back of a matchbook cover. Hope he never sees the light of day. Yeah they enjoy his butt in prison. He'll be walking around with his pockets turned inside out.

  61. Bettie McReynolds-Milligan

    Now your life is your own to live as you wish. Please don't let your childhood define the rest of your life, or keep you from moving forward. God brought you through all of that for a reason…you have a great testimony! Now go ahead and spoil yourself—you deserve it!

  62. Yoli Rachal- Fleming

    What a sick fucker!!! Put him in general population and let them deal with him!!! He won't make it alive, in or out of prison……stupid asshole!!!

  63. Josh Myers

    There is no God, that's why REAL people had to get involved. No invisible forced poofed these girls away, if there is such a thing it sat idly by and watched while these girls "prayed" their hearts out for it to stop.

    What did happen is good, undamaged people intervened and saved these children from more abuse, so why don't you sing THEIR praises instead of an sadistic imaginary friend who did NOTHING to help them.

  64. Becky Baker-Christner

    What do I think? Give him and his wife the same punishment only let both of them drown. That way they won't do it anymore. Problem solved. These idiots that do these horrible things to children are nothing but trash and the world has no room or use for them!

  69. Artie Williams

    Wow, you were waterboarded before the term became a household word since Bush's GWOT. Glad you survived and no longer in danger.

  70. Angela Griffin Bunch

    I think he needs to go to prison for a very very long time. If the mother of this child stood by and let him do this then she needs to be in prison too.That poor child will never forget what he done to her. For some reason some adults think that children don't matter. They can just treat them anyway they want to and it will be alright. It makes me sick. I am 53 years old and I can remember when I was 4 years old. I can't remember alot but there was things that happened in my life that I can remember and will never forget. She is 11 she will never forget this. Let him see how it feels to be in fear of his life. I hope he goes to prison and the inmates show him what fear is. I pray the little girl will get over this and will be able to go on with her life.I will be praying for her.

  71. Artie Williams

    Yep, she should have some time to serve and not have access to her children either…

  78. Alma Doxi

    @ Rachel, she could have stopped the abuse ….. she should have left her husband together with her children

  79. Alma Doxi

    I have read several child abuse cases in the US, some victims have died, but the abusive parents gets away with bail or acquitted … indeed something is wrong with the US Criminal System

  80. Debby Schwarz

    Bettie, what a beautiful thing to say. Garden ofhope, I pray you get the help to make your life, yours. No child or person deserves to be treated this way. I am so sorry no one was there to help you or get you out of the pain you endured…This so called doctor/father is a poor excuse of a person. How do you do this to a child? How do you look in the mirror and not get physicaly sick knowing what you did? God blessed you with children, a good job and this is how you thank him? You turned up the heat in the place you will spend eterity. I don't understand people, If a parent can't love their child, then give that child to someone who can love them and give them a good life and a chance in this world.

  82. Marcela Finochio

    It amazes me how a supposedly educated PEDIATRICIAN no less! Can abuse his child, any child for that matter to this degree and be released on a few hundred dollars bail. He should be strung up by his balls in the town square. The judge who ordered the bail so low should be right next to him!

  83. Marcela Finochio

    Alma Doxi I agree with you. When you are a child you don't have options. In this day and age in America a full grown woman, a mother should NOT allow herself or her child to be abused. Grow a backbone women! My mother was hit by my father ONCE!! And even though she had no family to run to in this country, she kicked his ass out! She went from a stay at home mom to a full-time supervisor at a hospital.
    But my father never laid a hand on any of us again!

  84. Marcela Finochio

    Hope you go to school and become a child advocate. Your purpose on this earth is to tell your story, it will help children like those in this story. From knowledge comes power. And no matter what your "parents" did to you, just know that you DO deserve happiness! Good luck to you!

  85. Stephen Joseph Monachello

    Jerri Nicelady That is too nice. The "good" doctor and his wife should be treated more harshly. What is wrong with people? This world? I am stunned.

  86. Diana Miller

    It's so easy to pass judgment when one doesn't know everything about a case. If, IF, the Mom was abused there are things people need to know. Abused wives/Moms are often brainwashed into thinking they are nothing. Or they are threatened if they report anything to authorities. Or they've become so terrified [for either her kids and/or herself] that she's frozen emotionally and to a certain extent, physically, and is incapable of reporting anything to anyone. She can be made to think that she can't do a thing. That nobody will believe her. Or that without him, she is nothing, and would utterly fail being out on her own. This whole thing can be even worse if she's isolated from friends and family, and if her husband has any kind of influence outside their home in the community. Furthermore, if the abuse has been going on for some time, the Mom may also be without any financial means to escape, to hide. He may watch every penny that's spent in that household, and she'd have to answer for every expenditure. Furthermore, he may keep an eye on the odometer in her vehicle [if she is allowed to have one], and any unaccounted-for mileage is questioned. That Mom may be so indoctrinated and so fearful that she didn't know if her community had a place that could adequately hide her and her children. So your ignorant comment of, "she could have stopped the abuse…she should have left her husband together with her children" is just frustrating to those of us who have been there…or are still in that situation. It's a slap in the face. It's deliberately hurtful, AND accusatory, AND extremely judgmental. Spousal abuse is usually associated with child abuse. Spousal abuse can encompass physical, psychological, emotional, financial, sexual, etc. means used against her. The dominate power-and-control game that the abuser utilizes is paralyzing and all powerful. So until you've walked in a Mom's shoes who's been an abused spouse and Mom, I'd sure appreciate it if you'd keep your uneducated comments to yourself. I'm sure others who have gone through this stuff would also agree.

  87. Diana Miller

    Been there, know exactly what you're talking about…from both my natural parents, and some of my foster parents. Don't be like me…where things have haunted me, changed/impacted me as a person, and still deal with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Get help, be strong, have faith in God, pursue your dreams, work hard, love well, have hope, give of yourself to worthy causes and above all else? Appreciate who you are as a person, know that you are worthy of respect and consideration. Treat yourself well and be happy.

  88. Noreen Burkett

    I am sorry you had to endure the torture, but, at 20, why were you still there? At 18 years of age, you can leave and there is nothing they can do to you. Move far away from these awful people and never look back. Bettie is correct; take her advice.

  89. Garden OfHope

    I did ….. I tried running away but without avail the police was called and they told them that I was an adult and I could make my own decisions, they did pay for my first two years of college, and they used that to control me as if they owned me, then I decided to speak up and tell them that I wanted to leave and so I went into the Air Force but on a delayed entry, 6 months waiting …..I had to stay with them and it was torture, no school during those 6 months, I did not have a license, they did not allow me to go work, I felt like I was in prison…..

  90. Garden OfHope

    following that I have tried to come to terms with the abuse ….. but I have not been able to.. I go to counseling regularly, but I have had trouble keeping jobs due to my anger issues and to my inability to cope with situations at times, at 48 I am still having trouble ……

  91. Garden OfHope

    fortunately the waterboarding was only in my early years, it stopped once I had no more potty training issues, but I was terrified of taking a shower, had to get over that, but I was physically hit, and mentally abused for years….

  92. Tammy Bascom Wayt

    How can either parent get bail at all?! This should mean he automatically loses his license to practice any kind of medicine.

  93. Austin Wade Soulone

    @ Sheree Rogers Thank you for your kind words, and I would be honored for you to pray to your god for me.
    however, I think you and those like you, would do more good, praying for that little girl. OH, but wait, I forgot, this god thing you pray to, it was watching that girl getting abused as well as it watches children getting molested by priests of it's church and I am sure it watches the children who are MURDERED by their parents and other, and DOES NOTHING TO STOP IT. So thanks but no thanks.

    oh now, thats not very christian of you, you should turn the other cheek, let god be the judge. you place your self before the judgment of god, you will go to hell for that. OH WAIT I forgot god is a fairy tale used to keep the children in line, never mind the first part, string this bastard up by his balls and let the children have some batting practice.

    @ Josh Myers, I see that you are an enlighten soul, you are absolutely correct. One day humanity will be rid of it's primitive god thing, but it can't happen soon enough for me. Rock on Mr. Myers.

    I don't like to swear online but I can't think of anything but you sick fuck. An educated, world renowned doctor? At first glance I thought it was another country because God knows what they do to little girls in some places, then I saw it was here in America and by a pediatrician? Those girls are much better off even if they are wards of the State, and believe me I don't think that's the optimal result for any child. PUT THESE PEOPLE IN JAIL AND THROW AWAY THE KEY!

    Boy, this guy looks familiar. I wonder if he's been in the news in the past?

    The "Father," must be ready for Prison residency. $750.00 is not alot of money for a strong grown adult to behave as such. Whomever care the children are in give them a Big Hug as they as wrapped within a blanket. Tears from a Mom and one who really cares even if an unknown.

  103. Doug Schultz

    He should be paying damages to his children, not to the State… why should they get any money from it?

  104. Austin Wade Soulone

    @rita Erwin, u are so very right, and it is that god thing that watched it happened, AND DID NOTHiNG. So it can creat a universe and can't stop a man from weatherboarding his daughter, I could state millions of more examples.

    what if he is not guilty? According to records, this child has admitted lying about abuse to authorities before. And that time it wasn't the parents being accused, but they are the ones that called the authorities! Does anyone believe that there is a good reason we all get our day in court when accused of crime? You want a public lynching, and ask questions later? How about burning "witches" at the stake – wanna go back to that too?

  106. Don Fuller

    Almost 100% of the commenters here are basically for doing away with a trial, so that guilt or innocence can be established before punishment is decided. There is a very good reason that our forfathers put in place a system to assure that everyone gets their day in court – should they be accused of a serious crime. Our public schools have failed to teach this basic principle of democracy, and how it applies to keeping a populace free of government tyranny. It is not your fault, but you have to realize that you are being kept ignorent on purpose and for a reason – and then do something about it.

    I agree bro. It happens all the time too. Casey Anthony was a perfect example. Even when she was found not guilty, most people had made up their mind she was guilty and should be executed. I call this the "Nancy Grace Syndrome".

  108. Anna Crawford

    Well Don Fuller let me just say that from what was posted, there was no talk of the 11 yr. old lying! The only thing that was there to read stated what he was acused of. I never said he shouldn't have a trial. If he is found guilty he deserves the same treatment he put on his daughter! There is no excuse for treating children this way. I want the truth to come out and then justice to be served wherever it lies!

    Nevermind, I just looked it up. those parents should never get their kids back and should be locked up.
