Where in the hell do they get off only giving this man 25 years, this sweet little girl lost her life for no reason, only in a backwards ass town like poplar bluff would somebody get away with that shit, he will probably be eligible for parole in ten to fifteen years, this makes me sick to my stomach. What is the world coming to honestly?

first off, i know adam and i know he was mean to that kid she was scared to death of him and everybody knows he beat on zoey and jennifer. do you realize that allowing the abuse is enabling it? i bet it is hard to live with yourself knowing you were out running the streets getting high with this "murderer" while your child lay dead in your house and he told you she was sick three times *you admitted this in court, according to documents* but you never cared enough to go and even see about her. you still live in the same hous how can you walk by that babys room everyday knowing that you are just as responsible for her not being hyere anymore? a couple months after she died you had a yard sale and sold all her things after being handed donation after donation not to mention a free funeral and from what ihear a pocket full of your own money. You honey also will answer to your punishment at god's call for not giving a sh*t about your kid.


...let me tell u something the parent that posted is not really the parent cuz i know them and they are apauled someone chose to impersonate them. And adam never touched that child he loved her dearly and you need to read the court papers over cuz that was never said. Also the funeral was not free i know who paid for it and the people who helped with the food and flowers and clothes and everything and the donations went to all of that. They no longer live in that house by the way and no they didnt have a yard sale....they donated her clothes and things to the haven house not because they didnt want the memories of her but because they loved her and thats what they thought she would want done....now if you would stop antagonizing people who are very much still in morning especially as her birthday just passed and the year to the day mark is fastly approaching. Just leave them be

People always blame the victim. Whether she was mother of the year or not is irrelevant now because her daughter is gone, not by her own hands. But the hands of a trusted neighbor. So the fact she was smoking a doobie and maybe wasn't showing the best judgement is an excuse for that man to kill her daughter? If the child was so sick or was crying nonstop, there are other options besides the cruel act he committed. He could have called DFS, if nothing else, and got out of the situation. But instead he couldn't handle it and killed the poor child. I have had so called friends leave their kids with me WAY longer than they were supposed to. And these kids were wild. But you know what? I didn't take it out on the kid. Just dealt with the situation and vowed never to sit for those people again. There's no justifying this, even if they were the worlds worst parents. They didn't kill their child. The killer of that baby is in jail where he belongs.

Its obvious to me that he didn't intentionally kill this kid. He did wrong yeah but he didn't beat her to death. If the mom would have came when he text her then her child would be alive today. She should be held responsible also.

Ok, so it's mom's fault that this man killed that child, for not getting there quick enough when he texted her. So if I'm late picking up my kids from daycare, the workers have a right to kill them? Kind of f*cked up logic, don't you think?

Why does it matter who paid for the baby's funeral? I don't think your church would apperciate you on topix telling strangers that you knew they gave a lot of money and the funeral was free that's is why we are Christians is to help each other. it doesn't matter who paid fo what as long as she was laid to rest!

i am fairly certain that if any of you genuinly gave a damn about this child, you wouldnt be continously bringing this all up o the net. She is laid to rest and hopefully peacefully dispite that fact that you sensless fools can not drop things that have absoulutly nothing to do with you. Whether she had the worlds greatest parents or not, she deserves to be let to peace and have to watch you fools from heaven bashing them. Let the poor dear rest for gods sake. You should all be ashamed of youselves.
