Heather Alexandria (1992-1999)
Her name was/is Heather Alexandria White she was born Dec. 23.1992 and was
finally beaten and raped to death. The last "INCIDENT" occurred on Dec.
12.1999. After being maintained on life-support for 3 days the machines were
turned off on Dec. 15.1999. We buried her on Dec. 21, 1999 - days before her
7th birthday and 3 days before Christmas Eve 1999. She never saw her
generation's new century. None of the family even thought anything was wrong
until the day before the "incident" OCCURRED. Even then we did not suspect
rapes and beatings - just a very crude, dominating, overbearing boyfriend.
Our niece loved her daughter and would never allow her very own daughter to
come to harm-we thought. On Jan. 13.2000 my niece was indicted for 1st
degree murder with the death penalty. We love her but we hate her actions or
Thank you, Blenda Barnes (relative)
Colten Riley Pitsch (4-months old - 12/18/98 - April 28, 1999)
In loving memory of Colten...
The reason I am so interested in becoming part of your team is because April 27, 1999 my son Colten (4 months old) was at the babysitters with his sister Cheylynne. I had received a 911 page from the sitters house, when I called I was told my son had fallen on the kitchen floor and was not breathing on his own. He was flown to the hospital, when we arrived we were told he had a fractured skull, bleeding on his brain, brain damage and could not breath on his own. On April 28, 1999 at 4 a.m. Colten was pronounced dead. We later found out that the babysitter was holding him when she bent down to pick up her son and Colten fell out of her arms and landed on his head. Almost a year later the medical examiners report is finished and the cause of death was "blunt force trauma to the head" and was being ruled as a homicide. The babysitter was arrested on March 24, 2000 and is being charged with "second degree murder" and "child abuse". I want to do something to help other children that are being abused or have been abused and for the parents that have lost a child due to abuse from another person. This tragedy as well as Colten have taught me a great deal and my eyes are no longer closed, and I want to use what I have learned to let these children know that someone out there loves them. Thank you for taking the time to listen and for welcoming me to the team ...:)
