      The story already doesn't make sense….I understand some people in this world are sick but you don't sit a car seat down "briefly" and all of a sudden it is gone with a toddler in it because as a mother I know that those things are extremely heavy especially with a child inside. The baby was never in the car seat and was most likely killed prior and someone used the car seat scenario as a cover up.

    The sad thing is even if it is not Ameriah,it is still someones child. No parent should have to go through the heart ache of having to identify the body of their baby.

  • N.B

    My sympathy to the family of Ameriah. I can not even begin to imagine the pain the parents are experiencing. We all can look forward to the promise mentioned in Gods word the Bible at Psalms 37:9,10,11. There it mentions how evildoers will be cut off from the earth. In other words all of the people doing bad/wicked things will be destroyed. We also can look forward to the promise at John 5:28,29, there it speaks of a resurrection of those who have died. This means you can have the heartwarming hope of being reunited with Ameriah as well as other loved ones who have fallen asleep in death.
