The injuries to the infant were found to be consistent with the straps which were used to restraint the infant during flight from Myrtle Beach to Charleston SC. by your paramedics. Miles Lee Ferguson would never hurt anyone let alone his new born daughter. He a great person with great moral values. He will be proven inosent! As time will tell.

Having known Miles for most of his life, I cannot accept or believe that he would be capable of hurting the baby he was so proud of and loved so much. He's too mild-mannered and even tempered to ever hurt anyone, much less his precious baby. We feel he will be proven innocent when the autopsy and investigation is completed. We will continue praying for Miles and his family, as they are all a loving family. I can't imagine what they must be going thru. His whole family went to Myrtle Beach for a vacation, and it became this nightmare. May God Bless Them All and keep them in His care. Don't give up hope.

Miles Lee Ferguson is hands down one of the best people I know. He and Ashley loved this baby girl so much long before she was even born. I do not believe for one second that Miles Lee hurt his precious baby girl. He has great moral values and lives his life for the Lord. This is not something that this family should be going through. This is something that you see on TV and read in the papers that happens to other families, not a loving family like the Ferguson's. I know Miles Lee has not lost his faith, even in the face of such adversity. I will continue to pray every day for him and the entire family. Time will prove his innocence.

I am a member of the Portsmouth Ohio First Church of the Nazarene where my family and the Ferguson family have attended for over 60 years. Miles Lee's grandfather was my boy scout leader at the church when I was 12 years old. I am now 71.

I was away from the Portsmouth area for 26 years while serving in the U.S. Air Force. I retired from the air force at Shaw AFB, SC, in 1981 and have been in the Portsmouth area and attending the Nazarene church since then. So, I have seen Miles Lee grow up from a very young child and I have really admired him as he has taken on leadership roles at the church. He is truly a young man after God's own heart and I would never believe that he would do anything to hurt anyone, let alone his own infant child.

If there was any harm done to the baby, it would have been due to his frantic attempts to revive and save the life of the baby. I would be willing to testify in court to the character of Miles Lee Ferguson.

I HAVE KNOWN MILES LEE FERGUSON FOR MANY YEARS. I HAVE WATCHED HIM GROW UP, GRADUATE FROM HIGH SCHOOL, HIS APPRENTICE PROGRAM, GER MARRIED AND HAVE A DAUGHTER.
HE WAS SO EXCITED WHEN HE ANNOUNCED THAT HE WAS GOING TO BE A FATHER. HE WAS VERY EXCITED TO BECOME A FATHER. HE MADE THE STATEMENT THAT HE DID NOT KNOW YOU COULD LOVE ANOTHER HUMAN BEING SO MUCH. HE SAID HE REALLY ENJOYED BEING A FATHER. HE AND HIS WIFE DID NOT LET MANY PEOPLE HOLD HER, THE ONES THAT DID HAD TO WASH THEIR HANDS FIRST. HE WAS SO VERY GENTLE WITH HER. I WATCHED HIM WITH HER SEVERAL DIFFERENT TIMES. HE HAS WATCHED HER ALONE BEFORE.

THIS MAN IS AN OUTSTANDING MAN AND CHRISTIAN. HE PREACHED MANY WEDNESDAY NIGHTS WHEN WE DID NOT HAVE A PASTOR. HE HAS EVEN PREACHED ON SUNDAY WHEN OUR PASTOR WAS OUT OF TOWN.
HE STARTED A PROGRAM IN OUR CHURCH CALLED "WAY OF THE MASTER". THIS IS A PROGRAM THAT TEACHES A NEW WAY OF EVANGELISM. A NEW WAY TO REACH SINNERS AND MAKE THEM REALIZE THAT THEY ARE TRULY SINNERS AND GIVES THEM A CHANCE TO REPENT. HE HAS BEEN INVOLVED IN PRISON MINISTRY AT THE LUCASVILLE PRISON. HE IS AN INSPIRATION TO MANY OTHER YOUNG MEN I OUR CHURCH AND LEADS BY EXAMPLE.

IN MY OPINION, THERE IS NO WAY ON THIS EARTH MILES LEE FERGUSON WOULD HARM MILEY GRACE.]
HE IS ONE OF THE MOST DEVOTED CHRISTIAN MEN, HUSBAND AND FATHER I HAVE EVER KNOWS.

MANY OF THE PEOPLE FROM PORTSMOUTH SPEND A LOT OF TIME AT MYRTLE BEACH EACH YEAR. US INCLUDED. WE HAVE RESERVATION FOR 3 WEEKS IN SEPTEMBER AND TWO WEEKS IN NOVEMBER. THE WAY THE PRESS IS TREATING THIS FAMILY AND THE WAY THE HOSPITAL TREATED THE FAMILY MAKES US NOT EVER WANT TO VISIT MYRTLE BEACH AGAIN. IF I COULD CANCEL MY RESERVATIONS WITHOUT LOSING MY POINTS I WOULD. THE PAPER MAKES MILES LEE GUILTY BEFORE ALL OF THE INFORMATION IS PRESENTED.
THE PAPER SAID THEY DID NOT KNOW WHERE THE MOTHER WAS. ALL THEY HAD TO DO WAS ASK. SHE HAD JUST LEFT TO GO TO THE BEACH. THAT FAMILY HAS SPENT SEVERAL WEEKS AT MYRTLE BEACH FOR MANY, MANY YEARS. THE MOTHER AND THE REST OF THE FAMILY WENT TO THE BEACH. MILES LEE STAYED BEHIND WITH THE BABY, SO SHE WOULD NOT BE IN THE HOT SUN. THIS ENTIRE SITUATION REALLY HAS OUR TOWN UPSET.

Miles Ferguson is not your ordinary guy. Miles is sweet and kind. He is the type of person who would do anything for anyone. I have watched this family do so much with there lives.I have seen Miles sister be pregnant and have her kid. Miles is a man who is a wonderful father. The way Miles carries himself as a messenger of the lord, is truley heartless. I dont understand why they could automaticallly assume that Miles killed his child.Does the wife think he killed his own daughtet. DOUBT IT! Miles my heart and prayers truley go out to you and your family in this time of need.

To anyone reading this that doesn't know Miles Lee Ferguson, let me tell you something: he is one of the best and most Godly men I know. My Mom goes to church with him and his wife, Ashley. She cannot say enough about what he does at church and she just loves the songs that Miles Lee and Ashley sing in church. There is no way he is guilty of anything but loving Miley Grace and loving his Lord Jesus Christ. The Lord will see you and Ashley through this. We are praying for you down here in Kentucky. Don't lose faith. Jer. 4:13-18 tells us we will see our loved ones again in Heaven. Our Grandmas our going to take real good care of Miley until you or Ashley get there.

Correction to above: it is I Thessalonians 4:13-18 not Jer. 4:13-18.

RESPONSE TO COMMENT FROM DIM WIT. Who are you? How in the world did you come out with that statement? You really need to get out and get a life rather than sit there making up stories you have no clue about, absolutely no clue. Ashley didn't go shopping with her mom, her mom wasn't even in Myrtle Beach, GEESH! Ashley didn't force him to baby sit even, it was his decision for fear the heat of the beach would be too much for his precious new daughter. That's how protective of her well being he was. The feeling was concurred by all family members who frequented Myrtle Beach regularly. Needless to say no family member or thousands of people whom know the Fergusons will never ever step foot on the beaches of Myrtle Beach again. Your emergency medical teams are clueless in knowing how to strap and care for an infant with a serious medical condition. The law enforcement/prosecutors office are looking for the publicity boost of this horrible tragedy just to boost their own ego and political gain. Shame on you for your made up story of a shopping trip and shame on the professionals involved in this case. May God have mercy on you for the false accusations and persecution of this innocent man.

My only question is, why in the world would you take a 5 week old with a SERIOUS MEDICAL CONDITION to the beach?

You don't "babsit" your own child! Miles was and is a responsible father. Why does it matter if Ashley went to the beach or shopping. All parents deserve to be able to go places without their children. He did not kill his baby!

Right he is responsible for his baby.I want to know the evidnce? Was the brusing underneith the babys armpits?If he held and shook her there would be.Do the bruses match Myles hands?The nurses must have seen somthing or they wouldn,t have called the police.They are trained to see abuse in children.
