Children recount sister's death

Jan 23, 2013 Full story: The Piqua Daily Call

Two older siblings of a Piqua 4-year-old who died as a result of injuries she suffered April 12, 2012, at a home on Caldwell Street in Piqua gave tearful testimony Wednesday of how their mother's live-in boyfriend, Travis Gauldin, burned their sister with a lighter before slamming and throwing her against a wall.

Everyone can believe what they want about this guy. From experience I know he loves children and no one has taken into account he has a son who will be three in march and he has never once laid a finger on the boy. I think some investigating should be done on these poor children's mother because she lied twice on the stand while under oath and who is to say she didn't harm the baby girl before she went to work and Travis may have made her accidentally fall down the stairs to lead to her final passing, but I still do not believe he threw her into a wall nor do I believe he burnt that baby. I do not think the Piqua police department investigated this well enough and I feel the mother had a lot to do with this. The mother did and does spank the children with a belt and I know this as a fact and she broke her order to not have any contact with Travis' family by showing up to their house not once but twice. I think the mother should face murder charges also because if Travis was such a bad guy why did she leave her children with them?

Sounds like you are either a close friend or relative to Travis. People lie, evidence does not. His defense team should be able to prove what your saying if it is true. Its also very easy to blame the police for not doing a complete investigation when it does not go in your favor.
