February 12th, 2000 – January 21st, 2005
A four year old child was robbed of having a “normal” life. This beautiful little girl was found beaten to death in the closet of her father and step-mother’s home.
All Sirita wanted in her life was a place she could call “home”. She was in foster care prior to moving in with her father and step-mother. The addition of this unwanted child at a house with five other children, all under the age of eight, was more than her step-mother could handle. Rather than seeking help with her frustration, she took out her anger on this defenseless child. Sirita was hit repeatedly, causing a fractured skull and lacerated liver, both life threatening injuries.
