Riley Ann Sawyer

Riley Ann Sawyer A little Angel she was. She came to Earth one day her stay here was short. instead of heaven - she found Hell. It happened in 2008 We can only wonder and imagine what her life was like. her mother was not with Riley's father. He was in Ohio. she came here to Spring Texas to marry a man she found on the Internet. the stepfather , that was suppose to take care, love and protected her didn't, instead both him and the mother gave her a life of Hell. She would get beat up everyday, by both of them. Little Riley Ann was on her own. She had no one to defend her. I can just imagine how terrified she must have felt, when she saw the monsters comming towards her. She would tell her mother - I love you mommy, I love you, hopping that the beating would stop, but it didn't. both of them took turns beating her up. She at last found peace the day she was killed. God dressed her in white that day and an Angel she became. Riley Ann is now in heaven surrounded by Angels where she can now rest in peace. But her mother and stepfather will spend the rest of their lives in HELL... 10/08/2013 Written by Lucilla M. Carrillo Note: All this is true. It happened here where I live. Her little body was put in an ice cooler bought at Wal - Mart. It was found floting in Galveston Island...

    this is very sad and I remember the story and the ice chest her little body was laid in... this gave me the chills, and my heart cries again, to know such a thing can happen to such a sweet angel.... :-(...Linda

    So tragic. Some poor kids never have a fighting chance. They are the angels of this world.

    Wow, what a work of non-fiction! It is sad that this actually happened to this poor innocent little girl! I really hate to hear about sick things like this that happen and you wonder how this could happen! I was amazed by your approach in telling the story, done with incredible awe and the details of the poor girls horrendous life!! Great Work!!
