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 : (

My heart, my prayers go out to you and your family. There are no words that can comfort you except that the Lord is with you and there is a purpose although we don't always know what that may be.

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.

Let me guess.

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.

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.

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?

The mother is a spineless piece of trash.

Jail is to good for her.

She should be forced to wear a millstone around her neck for the rest of her life.

What should happen to her boyfriend is unspeakable.

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.

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.

The stepfather is the one who is charged with murdering Kelsey. The real dad was in (Army?) in Iraq when his baby girl was murdered by mommy's new guy.

On second thought, maybe you knew that when you said that the SOB (stepdad) should face an Army firing squad.
