  • Howdy! This article could not be written any better! Looking at this post reminds me of my previous roommate! He constantly kept preaching about this. I’ll send this information to him. Fairly certain he’s going to have a good read. Thanks for sharing! kdakbeeddefe

  • I never allowed my 6 year old or even at 7 go outside alone.. Never.. I am so incredibly said for the children and the parents..There are some sick individuals on this earth…May God Bless these babies

  • Wow how small minded are you? Now we should charge the grieving parents cause some sicko is on the loose? People can’t wait 2 find fault with the parents when a tragedy happens. How bout the sicko gets charged and sent to die and the community consoles the grieving parents instead of blaming them. You must just like hearing yourself talk dummy

  • Their parent(s) or guardian should be charged also because they had no business outside unattended. This type of news has my heart heavy and it also makes me angry children should NEVER die like this, this is absolutely unacceptable!!! Tears!!!
