This Makes My Blood Boil And My Heart Weep...

From the day the story of Baby Grace broke the news in late 2007, I have been drawn to this case. The idea of someone doing such a hanis act of putting a child's body in a storage tub and tossing it in the water is just unfathomable to me. Where were her loved ones? Were they tirelessly searching for her? Wondering where she was? If she was safe...warm?



When I read later on that she had finally been identified, I wept for joy that she could finally be lain to rest...a beautiful cherubic angel.



How awful it was, the morning that I read that her mother was charged (along with her step-father) with her very violent beating death. Again I wondered how a mother could beat her baby to death...I drew my daughters close to me in a tearful hug.





Now her murderers are on trial. They blame each other for her death. Both of them are guilty! Both of them are responsible for extinguishing the life of this precious child of God.

Do you know why they did it? Why she was beaten for who knows how many hours until she was so weak and in pain that she couldn't stand or try to block the painful blows...because the 2 year old forgot to say "Please" and "Yes, sir".

These two worthless examples of human beings gave her a day long "disciplinary" session where they beat her until she was black and blue, her legs were too weak to support her! They held her head under water, pulled her from room to room by her hair or with a belt looped around her neck. She was threw to the ground so many times that she suffered multiple skull fractures...factures that ultimately caused her excruciating death. Her step-father even verified that he took the day off of work to make sure that she learned her lesson about being disrespectful to her parents!

As a mother, I cannot understand how her horrible example of a mother could sit back and watch her baby being murdered...especially when I read that at least one time during the prolonged violence, Riley reached out to hear saying "I Love You"...(I weep gut-wrenching sobs every time I picture this...a tiny precious baby terrified and in pain, just wanting her mother to comfort her and make it stop and that mother does nothing, but let in continue and even join in the beating!)

After she mercifully died, they put her in the tub while they purchased a storage container at Walmart. Her tiny body was placed inside and forgotten in a back storage shed until several months later when they drove to the water and tossing her away with the hope that their awful crime would never be discovered...

Thankfully they are on trial...this worthless piece of crap mother (who by the way is pregnant!) and this awful, brutal pig of a step-father. And I just have to wonder...how can this woman smile?



I just want to reach into the tv screen and strangle her with my bare hands...

Dear Lord please forgive me for my thoughts...but I cannot help the hatred that I feel for these two.

Why didn't they just let Riley go back to her father and grandmother who loved her and miss her terribly?

Sorry...I just have to get this off my chest...I cannot think of anything else...

OMG...that poor baby!!!

This is the first I've heard about Riley...May she rest in peace.

Her parents better be convicted of capital murder.

I too have been drawn to this story from the begining. I cannot imagine what kind of evil a person would have to be to do this to a child. As a mother, I just cannot comprehend how she would let this happen, much less help kill her own child! It makes me cry tears of anger everytime I read about these monsters!

There should be a punishment equal to the torture these monsters put this precious child through. This makes me sick to my stomach, that anyone could harm anyone like that, let alone an innocent child.

That is so awful. Some people do not deserve to be parents. I can not even fathom how someone could do this! That is why I don't watch the news. I just they could be treated the exact same way. She should be required to put the baby she is carrying up for adoption.

Surf Girl said...

This is the first I've heard of this case as well. Those two "people" are truly monsters. They don't even deserve to be called human. How can you bear to hurt an innocent child? I agree with Tara R. - there should be an equal punishment for them.

How awful, my heart just breaks to pieces even thinking about this little girl. I tell myself she is in heaven and in a much better place.

Thank you for stopping by my blog. I book marked you and will add you when I update again.

How, how can these people look at themselves in the mirror? How can that poor excuse of a mother even THINK of having another baby and smiling in court? The other question I struggle with is WHY can people like this have children with no difficulty at all, while people who would be amazing parents sit by hurting because they can't have children? I just don't get it. I hope this woman is comfortable in extreme temperatures. She's going to spend an eternity in them.

I am sick. I hope that if they don't get the death penalty that they go to a maximum security prison where the inmates handle the situation and they rot away there until they die and go to hell.
(I'm not usually like this, but this is just...there is not a word)
