How can we call this woman a "MOM". A "MOM" Does not 'beat or allow her child to be beaten' until it dies from injuries.
....And these folks walk amoung us everyday!
just my opinion

I think child abusers should be fixed as part of their punishment.so they are never allowed to reproduce again and abuse another child!people dont change,if you would do it once you will do it again!!those are sick people

Is this the same Silas McCracken found on the Virginia's Registered Sex Offender list? The one listed in the newspaper refers to him as "III" but on the registry, there is no usch distinction. If it is not the same, is this a father/son relationship?

"NO NAME" it seems you know these people. Where is the little baby boy? With family? Did the family not notice the bruises on the little girl and say something?
This is so sad! My heart breaks for that little girl!

The Silas McCracken on the registered sex offender list is the father of Silas McCracken that is charged with the child abuse and child neglect in the death of the little girl

This poor child, what she went through we will never know. But rest assured these animals will be punished if not here on earth somewhere else. How can any mother sit back and watch someone beat their child this is sick she was probably doing it too. To the little girl's family I will be praying for you know she is with a loving father now and is no longer suffering at the hands of these crazy nuts.

The offender also lists Silas McCracken III as "violent sexual offender, failure to register"
It is the one arrested in this child's death.

I think the EXACT same thing should be done to them. This has been on everyone's mind since the occurance. I hope VA gives them the death sentence if they are guilty.

They don't even need a trial, they need to be sent straight to the electric chair! Both of them! I would say they will see hell in prison, I hope they become somebodys girlfriend in there! The pain this child suffered at the hands of two stupid heatherns is inexcusable! I can't even begin to imagine how this little girl suffered the 2 years she was on this earth, God will have his vengance and these people will pay! A mother who would allow her child to be beaten isn't worth feeding in jail, our tax dollars will keep these two snakes 3 meals a day and a roof over their heads, this sickens me! Even a snake will protect their young, how can these people live with themselves?

The one on the sex offender list is the father, and the one charged with the death is his son! goes to show it wasnt a good functioning family anyways!
