I was amazed after doing a search here on "Baby Grace", that a news site as large as Newsvine had not reported more, and/or commented more on this tragic story. Is it possible, due to my locality, I am more aware of this horrific case?
The impression I'm getting from our local news stations, is this has turned into an international plea for help in identifying this little girl. I naturally assumed Newsvine would be in the forefront in hopes of finding clues to identity Baby Grace. Below I've listed particulars regarding this case:
Late Monday, October 29, a fisherman discovered a blue Sterlite-brand utility box on a marshy, grassy island near Green's Cut, about five miles west-southwest of the Galveston Causeway. This island is only accessible by boat.
Inside the container were the remains of a little girl wrapped in plastic bags. She had suffered multiple skull fractures and had been dead for several weeks. She is believed to be between 2 and 3 years old. She was 32 – 34 inches tall and weighed between 25 – 30 pounds.
The little girl had blond hair to the middle of her back and was wearing a pink ¾ length sleeve pullover top and a pink skirt. Both were the Cherokee brand sized 2T(a Target brand). One of the composite sketches shows the clothing she was wearing when found.
The child also wore size 8.5 white and purple tennis shoes with small lights in the heels. These shoes can only be purchased at Wal-Mart.
I know this is a macabre, gruesome news story … definitely not the norm for me. But, I feel a need to do my part to possibly help identify this beautiful little girl. This little girl could be from just about anywhere. So, no matter where you live, please take a good look at these composite sketches.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Galveston County Sheriff's Office at 409-766-2222 or 866-248-8477.
