Things would have been so much better for this poor baby if she was living with her Mom! Not her piece of **** dad or whatever you want to call that creep! Alexis.. You deserved to know what constant love felt like, from everyone! You are a beautiful baby girl and I'm so sorry that someone took your innocent little live! My heart breaks for you sweet pea! Rest in peace! Many tears have been shed for you from us who didn't even know you!

I just want to know why everybody is praising this girls biological mother? According to the news and the paper this abuse has been going on since October of 2009. Where has this girls Mother been all that time? I do not think she deserves praise if she gave her daughter to that loser, even if she was removed from her custody and given to him. She obviously wasn't that great either. Poor poor little girl, sounds like she never knew love. It's sick!:(

Have some respect... An innocent child lost her life! Who are you to judge the mother without knowing the whole situation??? Unless you know, keep your trap shut! I pray for eternal peace for this young girl, and pray for comfort for those who loved her.

To confuseddadof3girls:

As a father of a beautiful little girl, I can understand your confusion. However, do you know the whole story? My wifes ex husband was given custody of their son because her ex had convinced her that she was an unfit mother. He had mentally, emotionally and physically abused her to the point she thought she was worthless. It took her gaining a sense of self worth before she was able to once again have the strength to stand up to her ex and reconnect with her son. Alexis mother may have gone through the same thing, we can't judge her because we don't know. We do know that she lost a child and we can be there for her. She didn't abuse her child, so she did not kill her child.

Alexis, you are in a better place little one. You will never be hurt again and you will know love from now on!
This story just wrenches my gut! I don't care who was responsible for this, SOMEONE surely knew what was going on. As a teacher this makes me want to push the state to create a mandatory preschool or check-in program for young children. If this little girl would have been seen by someone on a regular basis we could have intervened and possibly stopped this from happening!!

First and foremost, I am glad this little girl is finally at peace. Clearly, she is in a much better place. I have a huge problem with All of these posts from people who knew her and/or her family...everyone is so concerned about little Alexis now, but the bigger question is WHERE WERE YOU WHEN SHE WAS ALIVE AND GOING THROUGH THIS TOURTURE???????

Its so very sad that this happed to someone so very little and didn't get a chance to live her life. I have a 3 year old little girls and I couldn't image my life with out her let a lone let any harm come to her. My heart goes out to you Alexis and your family. Its hard not to pass jugement or feel anger but I know that its not up to us but to our maker and I feel that God I will deal with this when time comes.
God Bless

WOW! If you would take the time to ask Kim and hear her out you would know that you sound like an *ss! She was and is a Loving Person/Mother. She doesnt have to explain anything to you! Look at her pictures and tell me she didnt look happy.

The people that have met Kim know that she is a very loving mother that misses her child deeply. How dare anyone doubt her that have never met her!

This is not the time or place to post hateful things or point the finger at who should have been protecting this precious angel. This is the reason I hate that people can post whatever they want as the mean, hateful, accusing posts you all are leaving only complicates this family's grief so much more. Have some respect, leave the negativity off of here...I know what I am posting will go upon those blind eyes that are speaking such horrible things----but for God's sake stop....let the family grieve and give them privacy. Kim I don't know you but have you and your family in my thoughts and prayers. I am so sorry for your loss of your precious, beautiful little girl.

I know a child being abused as we speak and Social Services won't do a thing about it...it's been reported and they won't look at it. Not even a glance.... Are they not here to protect children????? That is how this happens.....

I have five beautiful and intelligent grandsons. I love them all dearly. I was not blessed with a granddaugher but it was a decision of God to give me healthy boys. But never would I allow my children to abuse my grandchildren. I know that we cannot be everywhere at everytime but someone should has seen something so this angel would be alive. I grieve and lose sleep for all her relatives and I even grieve for the father and stepmother, what anger must have been in him to cause him to lose total control against a three year old. I cannot imagine.

My last thought is this "Children are God's way of saying that life must go on" but with adults abusing the little ones how can it happen.

God Bless the Children
