I'm sure they will. I believe you can't keep babies in jail, & hopefully jail is where that spawn of satan will still be when this child is born!

I feel we should make a change to the bill of rights from "no cruel and unusual punishment " To "Infliction of same and equal to the crime." these sub human pieces of garbage should suffer as that dear litte blessing did in a public forum . possibly . a stadium of their peers from death row with free rien to inflict punishment . God bless that dear little soul.

My good women These species are not human they do not deserve the label . any animal that would hurt a child so beautiful in this day and age deserve any punishment we can dream of . also by the way I see every one as plaid . you see white is the presence of all color hence we as white humans are black ,red, purple , green yellow and all in between . it is simple physics . 6th grade stuff . Peace be with you

These people should be tortured with a bb gun until they crap out. Do you realize how long this would take. I'm embarrassed that I live on the same planet with some people.

Satan has a suprise for these two worthless, barbaric low lifes. I get embarrassed that I have to share the same air with some people. Riley, I never knew you but I love you. May you dance with the angels and never feel pain again. I'm sorry noone was there to protect you.

Isn't it amazing so many of us wish justice? This, an evidence of the law of God written in the heart of all who breath; and true, it can be made cold stone dead to truth and beauty and goodness. "Will not the judge of all the earth do right?" Justice comes and it is truly hard.
I'm an atheist and I still want justice for Riley Ann.

I can't even fathom what sort of monster a parent would have to be in order to kill their baby, stuff the body in a plastic box, let the poor thing sit for months in the house--that in itself is incomprehensible--and then dump the poor baby like trash. I don't think any of us can understand it.

When I lived in Orlando,FL. I remeber a case very similar to Rileys; it was a little girl that was tied up to a tree outside for 'Hours'; made to eat soap, etc... she was killed by her Mother and her mothers' Boyfriend!! This is truly SICK!!
Ever noticed, that most of the time when something like this happens the culprits are the mother and the mother's boyfriend?

God is either all-powerful or He isn't.
If he is, he sits by and lets children be murdered so he can toss the killers into Hell.
If not, then he's not God.
Instead of blaming God. How about you looking at yourself to see how you've allowed this tragedy to happen in your own life, your own family, your own community, and your own country. Try pointing those fingers back at yourself. You expect God to intervene while you sit on your rear and throw accusations at Him.
