I THINK THERE IS MORE THAN ONE PERSON INVOLVED IN THIS SAD CASE AND I THINK THEY NEED TO INVESTIGATE BETTER THAN THEY ARE SO THAT OUR SWEET LITTLE DESTINY CAN REST IN PEACE AND SO JUSTICE CAN BE SERVED TO THE RIGHT PEOPLE
DESTINY IS MISSED AND LOVED BY ALL.

Jamie loved Destiney unconditionaly and she loved him the same he couldn't leave the room without her crying for him.He is still very emotional to this day and don't you know the mother has showed no remoris we heard from her own family and friends. She's had children services on her several times before and I also think the mother should have been investigated more.

It was proven that the child was not in Jamie
Champlin's care at the time of the accident.So why is he the only person being held responsable for childendangerment when the biological mother has all say to medical personel and didn't tell hospital about the fall isn't that childneglect?
She's acting like she don't know what happened but deep down inside she dose.She also made statement's that Jamie never abused her children and she would know it's not like she was working.

FIY we know him. hes my uncles step son and has only ONE sister who is still with him and older. so they are technically not related to her in ANY way!! HE has only seen her but 2 or 3 times thats obviously not enough to know or personaly call her his sister! If you would REALLY like to know the truth comment back because we KNOW the actual story/truth

I know the whole family very well and when they comment on him not doing drugs we all know that is a lie. And also just because she was in the mothers care when she went to the hospital does not mean that he did not hurt that child, she could have been hurt before and just did not show no signs right away. i just don't know why everyone is protecting him and making it seem like he is innocent, we are all forgetting the important thing which is a little girl will never grow up do to do things every girl grows up and expirences, the fact that peices of crap(the mother) let people around their children that should not be around children come on the guy was nasty did not take care of his on kids and also does drugs why would you let just anyone around your kids. and to everyone that sticks up for him i fell pitty for u b/c deep down inside u know he or the nother did not treat them kids right. I just wish baby killers would serve more time than little drug dealer a childs life is the most important thing but i guess him serving 3 years is a trade for an innocent life.my she rest in peace. and to everyone else i hope u can live with ur selves with what u really know!!!!

for all these people saying he didn't do nothing, he plead guilty i seen the newspaper and still have a copy, if he didn't do ANYTHING AT ALL why did he plead guilty? not to protect the baby's mom that's a garbage excuse, it was cause he felt guilty, for some kind of abuse towards the baby, wake up! if he was 100% innocent he would not have plead guilty are u guys blind? he should have gotten life or a death sentence NOT 3 years in jail. i don't care if it was my own brother who did this i wouldn't be protecting him for killing a baby, whats wrong with you people.
