    You people should be ashamed. Talking like her parents weren’t there or she was neglected. Pathetic.

    just so you know, the family isn’t from the area. It was a terrible ACCIDENT.

    I hope god judges you unworthy for heaven when your judgment day comes. Cause what upeople are saying is BS and asinine.
