  1. I’m from Southern Utah and familiar with this case. The abuse that Shelby endured was the most disgusting and horrific thing I have ever known.
    We license people to hunt, fish and drive.
    Maybe we should begin taking steps to license people to have children.

  2. Janet M,

    That is really a good idea. You have my vote on that.

  3. We cannot not forget Shelby, she is in our prayers.
    No child should suffer like that.
    sweet angel is in no more pain .

  4. How could he let his wife do that to her. When my baby is crying I will do anything to make it better. I would claw someones eyes out before I would ever let them hurt my baby. He sad back and watched that woman slam his little girls head in a door. How can he do that? I am so baffled by this. He deserves whatever the step mom gets because if you can’t trust your parents to keep you safe from harm who else does a 10 year old girl have. The saddest part of this all is shelby isn’t the only one. So many children get abused each day not only physically or sexually but mentally. Teachers need to notice their students a lot more. Shelby probably had bruises or something on her. I just think this could have been prevented in so many ways.
