The cage built around Brianna is NOT unkempt and full of trash... THAT IS A LIE!! My daughter is burried a few graves down from her and we visit every other week and we clean the area, including all of the other children's graves. I still think that cage SHOULD NOT be there, however, that statement is completely false! I would NEVER ALLOW that area to become ugly and unkept.
Your right, I was there yesterday and it wasn't as they reported. Thank you for cleaning the graves.

the first time i saw this video and photos of baby Brianna, i Cryed so much i couldnt believe it. Im a mother myself, my daughter is 7 months old and i wouldnt harm her in anyway, nor let anyone to touch her. i cant believe how these sick bastards did that to a poor lil angel.
they should be punished in the same way they did to her. the dad and the uncle should get f**** raped in the ass, and see how it feels like, these stupid devils. the grandma and momo and the other uncle should be death. if the people that "loves really loves her" just get some other people and clean and fix baby Brianna's grave. take that stupid cage out.put flowers, dont care what her family is gonna say, for they have no right on her. if they do step in, beat the crap out of them.!!! thats what they diserve. Im gonna do it myself im gonna travel over there. and get that shit out!!!!! she deserves to be in a clean good looking place, with beatiful flowers, not like an animal inside a cage!!!!
Rest in peace my lil angel, your safe now. and these people who did this to you are gonna pay very soon.!!!1 :(

my heart aches for poor baby Briana! I cannot imagine how anyone could harm a child or a helpless baby. I have a 7 month old and I would never allow anyone to harm her. I have not been able to stop thinking about baby Briana since I saw her story just the other day. It is so sad! It makes me sad to realize that there are sick people out there and that this type of thing happens. We all need to be aware and not hesitate to report anything that may be child abuse. I agree with everything that Jennifer said above. Briana deserves to have a nice grave with beautiful flowers and have that stupid cage removed. The family didn't care enough about her to claim her body, but they paid to put a cage on her grave? That is ridiculous and needs to be removed! Rest in peace sweet baby!

I am still crying. I have a nine month old daughter. How can there be such monsters in this world? How could God let such an innocent suffer? I hope that her parents and uncle suffer every day in prison, I hope that the other inmates know why they are in jail, and I hope they suffer as much abuse and rape as they inflicted on such a beautiful child. I can't even imagine how much this baby girl suffered, this makes me ashamed to be a human being.

They have already been prosecuted and can't get the dealth penalty. Anyway's that is an easy way out, they tourtured that little baby! I can't belive someone would do this!

This is why people take matters into their own hands. Evil exist in this world and the parents and relatives of Baby Brianna prove it. Prison is a horrible place but I have to say it is the safest place for them right now because their are real life people like the role Al Pacino played in "righteous kill" if anyone has the address to the prison I would like to write to them.

This story has been forever embedded into my brain, unfortunately never to be erased. How any one person, let alone several (!!) could do this to a precious baby is unimaginable. It rips my heart to shreds knowing little Brianna never knew a moment of happiness or love. God bless her little soul..........I will NEVER forget her.

At first I appologize for maybe incorrect spelling becausen English is not my language.
When I heard about Brianna's story I cried for weeks. It was the most sad story I'd ever heard. I become to love her as my own, en I mournd her as my own. Eveen though she I never knew her en she lived more the 10.000 miles away from where I live.
I am glad she is not suffering anymore en she will always be loved. At least by me, en as I read by many of you. I bought her a nice pink picture frame en places her photo in it. Not a black one. I put her in my livingroom next to my own children so I will never forge. Sometimes I walk by and I send some kisses towards the sky.

She now has changed my life and reminds me of all abused children around the world and that there is a lot of work to be done.

Thank you beautifull litte girl.

I have a 4 month old daughter and it sickens me to know what these people did to that poor beautiful baby girl. I know we aren't suppose to say whether or not someone will go to hell but God will punish them. I cry whenever I think about her. I would kill whoever would do that to my kids. I don't care who it was and what punishment I would receive. I know she is in a better place now.

you will always be missed and loved by everyone. I wish you would have been my daughter. You would have been loved and cared for."

I have loved BABY BRIANNA from the minute I read her sad TRAUMATIC STORY she deserves to REST IN PEACE WITH FREEDOM from the hideous cage that surrounds her in death.BRIANNA suffered the most horrendous abuse in her short life on this earth,UNIMAGINABLE things that only evil people would commit.SOMEONE someone somewhere in this world must surely have the power to REMOVE THIS CAGE and give BRIANNA the dignity that she never received in life.please someone do something sooner rather than later.BRIANNA has been trapped behind that cage for 8 years ,8 months and that is 8 years,8 months too long in my eyes and in the eyes of the whole world too.God bless you little one,we will never give up fighting to have that cage removed, YOU DESERVE TO BE FREE.XXX
