This page is dedicated to the children murdered by their MOTHER'S LOVER...

90% in Virginia.

About 1700 children  are murdered  in the US each year.    


"Preschoolers living with one natural and one stepparent were 40 TIMES MORE LIKELY to become CHILD ABUSE cases..."

"Children residing in households with unrelated adults were nearly 50 TIMES AS LIKELY TO DIE OF INFLICTED INJURIES than children residing with 2 biological parents"

Comments by a disgusted family member: 
"People deserve to know and she deserves more punishment. I was at the funeral and it was a disgrace on her part. They were sitting near the casket laughing and talking with friends and family for some of the time. The majority of the funeral, they were in the parking lot, a while group of them dressed the same, drinking beer and smoking weed. When it came time for the final goodbye, they were all late, and smelled strongly of alcohol. She did not shed a tear. She was stoned faced. It was disgusting and embarrassing to be related to her.
Many people were horrified. I do have to say that her mother and sister were extremely upset and kind. Mackenzie has been a terrible person since she was very young. I use to say she was a sociopath. Now I know she is. What I can’t figure out is why Tyler [Miller, Bentley’s father] would even be talking to her. I’m am thinking maybe he was sedated. He seemed numb. I don’t know though. The whole situation was just weird."

VICTORIA MARTENS - querque, NM - Beyond horrific.  Methamphetamine involved..  Mother (Michelle Martens - 35), BOYFRIEND (Fabian Gonzales - 31), and another lady (Jessica Kelley - 31) have all been charged in Victoria's rape, murder, dismemberment, and burning.  The story is horrendous.  The mother reports in interviews that she enjoyed watching her daughter get raped.  Apparently Gonzales raped her after death also.  The level of depravity is beyond words.  Gonzales was supposed to be on supervised probation, but that slipped through the cracks.  Probation office denies fault.  Child Protective Services (CYFD) had been called to investigate but found nothing and they also claim no fault because all protocol was followed.  All three suspects deny involvement, despite circumstantial evidence, and detailed interview with the mother.  Gonzales has been in multiple fights in jail and since the trials are to be separate and therefore very expensive, I am sure the taxpayers of New Mexico, would not mind if he were killed in jail.  Jason Oetting is the man that raised her from 3 months old until 8 years old
Tyler Joseph "TJ" Caudill .. 8.23.16
6 years old
TYLER JOSEPH "TJ" CAUDILL   -  6 years old  -  8.23.16  -  Portsmouth, OH.  -  MOTHER'S BOYFRIEND AND MOTHER are charged with murder.  The paternal family has been shut out since June of 2016 as the mother kept moving and a missing child report was filed on November 6.  Boyfriend was physically abusing TYLER and both mother and boyfriend were malnourishing TYLER.
Jordyn Dumont .. 8.15.16
3 years old

JORDYN DUMONT - almost 4 years old - Died August 15th, 2016 - Gastonia, NC. - MOTHER'S BOYFRIEND , who has a felony history, beat her to death while alone with the children. The FATHER had called Social Services several times because he was concerned about abuse, as the mother would not communicate with him. He lives out of town in Illinois. Social Services wrote him a letter stating JORDYN had "stable housing and good family support".

Police had been called 16 times to the home during the 9 months they were living there. Police say the calls were not related to the children.. In May, Social Services visited the home 5 times because of suspected neglect and substance abuse. Neighbors told the media that JORDYN had two black eyes a month before her death. The neighbor didn't call police. Neighbors didn't call police when the mother came running to their house with a busted and bloody head either.

The boyfriend's call to 911 was very emotional and frantic, saying JORDYN was missing. It goes to show you what a good liar someone can become after they killed somebody. The boyfriend wrapped her body in a black sheet and put her under some branches outside. She was missing for over 24 hours.
GRACE PACKER (aka Susan Hunsicker)  -  Bucks County, PA.  16 year old girl had been taken from her birth parents at age 2 because they 'couldn't provide a suitable home' for little Susan or her brother.  The lady who adopted her was a  supervisor with the Youth and Families Division and had fostered 30 children over the years.  Susan's name was changed to GRACE when she was adopted.  GRACE was sexually abused by the foster family father.  As a result, the mother was terminated from the Youth and Family Division.  Yet she maintained custody of  GRACE and her brother.  The mother and father divorce and in 2016, the mother's boyfriend and the mother sadistically carry out a planned rape and murder of the child.   Boyfriend facing the death penalty.  Who can protect the children when the system and abusive parents are on the same side?
