I agree somewhat with statements of the County's ability to handle this case. However, I am the individual who requested that is be overseen by higher authorities.

It is a simple fact that there were multiple opportunities from multiple county and state agencies to step in and put an end to what was happening.

This is why it must be handled by the VERY TOP levels of all forms STATE and FEDERAL. I can only assume that this is already occuring and I can be reassured at this moment that I don't need to worry that it is not.

Now, I hope that I do not offend anyone in saying this but there are those who chose to do nothing and there are those that will now step in and be pro-active to make sure they cooperate with the investigation truthfully and also to ensure that something like this never takes place again.

Hopefully no one ever will have to endure something like this.

But again, I appreciate so very much everyone's kind words and support during these times.

Emma is loved!

Listen real good.
I am Emma's father. I was not the one who did this. Second, Emma was NOT sexually assaulted.
I was at UT Medical Center in Knoxville, TN with Emma by her bedside all weekend holding her precious hands and holding her until last night. Now all I really have to say is that in Emma's time of need, I was there to tell her it would be okay and she was safe and that she was loved.
Also, the investigation is still pending but what I feel that I can say is that Juwan Moore and Brandie Baldwin were charged with probation and protection violations and were arrested together at UT Medical Hospital.
I also feel that I can say that Emma's injuries were due to physical trauma to the head. This will all be released eventually. Thus why any other charges have not been filed yet at this time. Emma just happened to be in Brandie's custody and was living with Juwan Moore when it happened. They have been living with eachother since March.
But what will absolutely make you sick is that Juwan Moore is also the biological father of Brandie's first child who was born in 2002 and she is also my step-daughter.
Know that I did everything under the sun to try and protect ALL of the kids from this guy and no one listened to me or was willing to do absolutely NOTHING to stop this horrible tragedy from happening. If anything, everyone ENABLED her to live the lifestyle she live WITHOUT ANY QUESTIONS.
That should pretty much be enough at this time.
I honestly am doing the best I can for my other daughters at the moment. They are in good hands and they are SAFE.
I would appreciate if someone would check a source really really well before you post something. But I can understand how the Daddy thing got mixed up.
Just know it wasn't Emma's father. If you knew how precious my little girls are, and some of you may do, you would know that no human with a soul could ever do this to her, allow it to happen to her, and then be cool with riding in the car with the other 3 hours before trying to visit her.
But we remember Emma for what she is,
a beautiful little angel that was loved by her Daddy.
So after everyone was successful in making ME out to be some kind of monster with their lies, YOU ALL KNOW WHO YOU ARE, this is a result of not listening to a father's cries for help.
But now that this case is being handled the way that it should, I have absolutely NO DOUBT that anyone can't put two and two together and justice for Emma will be done.
With that said, please continue to pray for my family because it will take a LIFETIME to make it right.
I love you Emma.
Always and forever...
I have Baby set for Baby Emma I didnt meet her and her Mother till a few months ago she was a hand full always climbing falling bumping her head triping on her blanky I hope to find the turth in all this I am so heart broken over all this I wish I had her with me that day and maybe we would still have her here with us she came here once with a busted lip and knots in her head when I ask what happen Brandie said she fell down the steps she had tripped on her blanky I wish I had done more for Baby Emma and her sisters they lost there home and I kept them and got them ready for school I had the two older kids a wk and I had Baby Emma over a month she spent her BirthDay here with me her Mother got a cake the day before becoze it was my Dauhters BirthDay and Baby Emmas was the next day she called and wished her a Happy BirthDay but didnt come and see I dont think I could just leave my Baby with someone I didnt I even know it took all of us to watch Baby Emma me and my kids a son and a daughter time and God will heal all wounds I cant say enough to you about your lose no parent sould out live there Babies I am able to keep your others Babies if needed they know me as Aunt Brenda my door is always open to them no matter what I am so sorry for this I am in shock I never tought this would ever happen I feel I sould have done more so sorry

I didn't receive phone calls, even on their birthdays. But I'm not sure telling me that Brandie had a birthday party for Emma there is the right thing but I can understand how someone could want to keep her.

Emma also did not always fall or bump her head when she was with me. Sure, she loved to be a 2 year old. She had a restless wonderful playful spirit.

I'm not saying this is what you are saying but, there better be no one one trying to get large groups of people together to try and convince anyone that Emma's injuries are self-inflicted because IT IS NOT TRUE. Sure she had an accident every now and then but there are details THAT I ONLY KNOW THAT I HAVE NOT RELEASED YET and Emma is not responsible.

With that said, this is not just Brandie left Emma with someone incident. Everything will come to light.

Thanks to all of the people in this area who have heavy hearts and beautiful children of their own who have deep sympathy for what has taken place.

Emma was the greatest little girl in the world.
We can all follow her example how to love.
She had the sweetest laugh.
And she most certainly had the smile to match.

Please be careful what you post.
I know the truth. The fall stories are fabricated.
And it will all be proven soon for a FACT.

I love you Emma!

I've heard over years that the real dad/father didn't and wouldn't have nothing to do with any of the girls . Would never come see her/them always had reasons that he couldn't take his turn/weekends.. So I'm up in air how well Emma was taking care of.

Listen to what you are saying.

Everytime they were with me, I took as many pictures and video with my children so one day they could look back and remember the time spent with me.

And to be honest, I'm really not sure why you would even think about writing something like that.

She sure had everybody fooled.
It's good to know that you think this of me :(

I still love Emma and no one will ever change that.
Just be thankful and pray you never have to go through something like this.

Emma's services will be in Covington, KY.
Why don't you come to visitation and meet my family. I'm sure they will welxome you with open arms.

Benjamin, I don't know you, or much details of this horrible tale yet. As a father, I sympathize (assuming that you are actually the father, and are actually Benjamin, etc). The problem with a place such as topix, people don't know. You do seem to be affected but then again, as bad as it sounds to say, you could be someone trying to make it sound one way as well. I myself believe what you're saying but just don't allow yourself to get dragged into the all too typical behavior on here of people posting generally in their anonymous way and saying whatever they think will stir people up (such as Bull OH's post).

Judging by the comments you have made, it appears that the system has failed at times, hopefully it won't this time. I myself appreciate your posting, it is insightful, and I believe truthful, but don't allow people to hinder the cause. There are people who get on here, with no other purpose but to cause problems.

Prayers to all who have lost this precious angel and may justice come to those who are responsible.
just somebody

I dont know anyone involved here just want to say my prayers are with all her family. Mostly her dad, no one should have to burry their child and secondly to the other children for the loss of an angel. I just pray justice will be served for baby Emma cause no body deserves to die due to neglect or whatever the cause. Prayers to the family...

It was my umderstanding that baby Emmas daddy(or so called.daddy) done this to that baby. I have no compassion for him. I hope he gets his in jail. Besides he wouldnt be there if he hadnt beat and raped a 2yr old. That is one sick man and the so called momma ran off with him. I hope there is a special place in HELL for both of them. Emma was an angel they took her life so what does that make them? I pray for the other kids look at what all they lost. If the man that calls.himself the daddy is upset then I for one dont care cause he sure didnt care what happened to his own baby. Prayers for the other children.
NOOOOO it was not her daddy who did this to her get your shit right for you get on here sayin things like that it was the moms boyfriend NOT HER DAD JUWAN IS NOT HER DADDY he day is a good man and would of never did anything to hurt his babygirl....

If wise county has such qualified investigators, check out Mr. Moore's last sentencing from probation violations at courtbar.org . He should have still been behind bars for that. Wise County is interested in getting plea bargains so that the number of convictions stay up and the prosecutors look good. If scum like Mr. Moore weren't allowed to talk their way out of trouble, their criminal behavior might not continue to escalate until someone is hurt. The father has said here that he was complaining long before there was any harm done, but no one would listen. Wonder why??? If these investigators you speak of are so qualified they wouldn't need narcs to make their drug cases for them and a lot of people like Mr. Moore would be behind bars for the crimes they commit. I used to run in the same circle as Juwann, and he has been into one thing or another for years, but nothing much has ever been done about it. He never cared anything for his own kids from what I've observed.

As for people questioning the father, it seems that he did everything he could to save his child, but he was let down by the wonderful system here in Wise County. It seems that here, things are based on who you know or blow and not the truth. I hope and pray that justice is done for this poor child. I just don't understand how people who have the job of investigating complaints and making sure children are safe, seem to look the other way so often. Maybe they should be held accountable in some way for this. I'm sorry but I know that Emma's case is not the only one that has been mishandled both by Wise County Social Services and by the Sheriff's department. Corruption is rampant and everyone knows it.

Mr. Baldwin my sincerest sympathies are with you and the rest of your family. Loosing a child is the worst thing that a parent could ever go through. I am so grateful that I pulled my head out of my ass and got out of the life I was living so that I can be the mother my children need. I can't even begin to imagine the pain and anger you feel for your loss and for the fact that it may could have been prevented. I admire you for trying to keep it together for your other children and not letting the anger you must feel rule you. You and your family will remain in my thoughts and prayers.

You need to get your facts straight.

And I want to personally thank you for blaming me for this. I can't even believe you would say such things and guess what I DIDN'T EVEN KNOW WHERE SHE MOVED TO 3 WEEKS AGO SO GET YOUR SHIT STRAIGHTED OUT.

Shame on you for such comments.

So let all the real monsters come out and defend them from what took place and blame me.

I still love Emma regardless and always have.
