Skip to comments.Two Year Old, Kelsey Briggs, Beaten to Death By Step Father
Posted on 11/18/2005 8:58:09 AM PST by george76
I was asked to help spread the word on this, and how could I not? The story is absolutely heartbreaking.
Michael Porter was arrested Thursday for the death of his two year old stepdaughter. He is accused of striking the little girl in the abdomen earlier in the week causing blunt force trauma and inflicting deadly wounds.
Kelsey Smith Briggs dies hours before her father was due to return from serving in Iraq.

Oh dear Lord...
My granddaughter Kelsey was born after her parents were divorced. I wondered why this child would be put on this earth after the two people who were not meant to be together had already gone their separate ways. I knew she had a purpose, but what could it be?
When my son was called to active duty and sent to Iraq I was sure that I knew. God was giving Kelsey to us because her father was not coming home.
I was wrong. Kelsey was the one who did not make it. She died just days before her dad was to return. After nine months of abuse, she joined the other little angels in Heaven. It was then that I knew her purpose...
God got tired of seeing his angel hurt so he took his little precious home. She's now residing in his arms. Now let justice be served on this monster of an earthly father.
George, please accept my condolences to you and your family. I just don't know what to say about why babies are put on this earth, just to die like that : (
And yes, there are too many cases of child abuse that go unpunished. I will do my best to help to protect other innocent, vulnerable children and to call on the full punishment of this awful crime.
May God bless and comfort you.
The mother is a whore who cheated on her husband with a no-account lowlife who mostly lives off her income and childcare payments.
An all too common scenario that invites atrocities like this.
I am just the messenger.
The victims are on the link. They need our prayers and support.
Sorry if I did not make it clearer, earlier.
May God give you and your family strength through this tragic time. My prayers are with all of you.
If he ever needs anything, just post here and some FReeper somewhere will probably be able to help out.
Thank you for posting.
And the mother who allowed the abuse to occur, imho.
Correction: her father is a hero serving in Iraq. I hope he gets some time alone with this piece of garbage so he can dispose of it properly.
Precious child now in the arms of Christ. May this family be comforted...somehow. <><
I am just the messenger.
Here is some more from that family (not mine, thankfully).
Sorry for not making this clearer, sooner.
Prayers and the faith there is a special place in Heaven for her. Hope there is a place in prison for about 30 years for him (prisoners and guards have a special regard for baby killers) and then hades.
Here is a request from them.
The capitalized letters are theirs, not mine.

What can a child possibly due to deserve this abuse. I would hope that the stepfather gets what he deserves. Didn't anyone see it happening. Our prayers are with her, its too bad that she had to die to be safe. What about the mom?
George, my prayers go out to you and your family
God in heaven...why?
This is not my family.
I am just the messenger.
They need our prayers and support.
Thank you for posting this here. How did you link my blog under news and activism? Just curious on that one, but thank you for helping to spread the word on this.
Prayers for precious Kelsey's soul, her brave father, and her grandfather.
This is a national news story.
America is struggling and this sad story is part of the price that American families are paying to defend ourselves against the terrorists.
It may be trite, but "Freedom is not Free."
This is true here with this family, with Pat Tillman's family, and across the country.
Another monster kills an innocent baby. God help us all.
I'm hoping that Michael Porter is dead by now.
I'm so sorry for the loss of your granddaughter, Kelsey. I will keep Kelsey, your son, you and your family in my prayers.
The four minutes is powerful.
Beat over the head with a baseball bat.
Thanks for the prayers.
It is not my family, thank God.
I am just the messenger here.
Here are some requests from the family...
Here is " tgslTakoma " number 33 post...
Thanks for posting this tragedy...I have been following this case since October, when Kelsey was killed. She lived in a town just about 5 miles north of us. The local news has been staying on top of this like white on rice, especially the local CBS affiliate (Channel 9 in OKC).
There is no reason that Kelsey should have died. She should not have been placed back in her mother's care in the first place. The kid had two simultaneous broken legs this year...a broken collarbone...more bruises and other injuries than I care to count.
Mommy Dearest is now pregnant again by hubby #2 (the accused) and he is divorcing her.
I feel for the family of Kelsey's father. I can't imagine the hell they are going through right now.
I am so angry about this case I could spit nails.
I can't help but notice that DHS was in on this from almost the start and the little girl still died.
DHS "wasn't sure who commited the abuse" so they left that sweet little angel in harms way.
Yet they have no problem harassing homeschoolers and Christians at the drop of a hat and will make a family's life a living hell if "outside information" says there "might be signs of a problem"...
The whole thing makes me sick.
Oreilly has been doing an ongoing expose about child abuse and how state workers seem ot ignore evidence of such abuse and how the perpatrators of such abuse seem to get off easy in many cases so I sent him some of the links to this case in the hope that he makes this case part of his investigation and pressures the state of Oklahoma to take this seriously.
Ping for Kelsey Briggs.
See, I knew it would make it to FR! :)
We have just begun to Fight !
Here is part of the family's request list...
The Capitilized words are theirs, not mine...
Maybe they should make the SOB face an Army firing squad.
On second thought, maybe you knew that when you said that the SOB (stepdad) should face an Army firing squad.
Yes, that's why I said it.
I'm sorry, I thought you were the child's grandpa. Yes they do need our prayers and support. Thank you for posting this.
I am so sorry about what happened to kelsey. I feel so bad even though I didnt know her or her family but I send my regards and may god bless her family. I hope that the man who hurt her never leaves prision. I read her story and cried because I felt so bad.
im so sorry to here this even that we are in 2008 i have just seen this beautifull little girl and my heart sank i have three children of my own and i would not like this to happen to anyone and my family and i would like to send our love to you and the rest of your family.
