Parents From Hell: Lamar Jr and Ruth Vickerstaff charged with the murder of daughter, Amore Joveah Wiggins aka Opelika Baby Jane, who died from unspeakable child abuse

Amore Joveah Wiggins

Another thing that really burns me up here is that the biological mom, Sherry Wiggins, who somehow lost custody to the father, ended up pay child support to him up to this very day. Her visitation was suspected when he obtained legal and physical custody. So she did not know what was going on or that her child was missing and murdered. She has cooperated fully with the detectives. My heart truly breaks for her.

Today is International Missing Children’s Day

May 25 of every year is International Missing Children’s Day, in honor of Etan Patz, who disappeared on this day in 1979. Unfortunately, there are thousands of missing children, dating back decades even. No matter how old that child would be, every parent holds out hope that their child(ren) will be returned safe. Some have been. Elizabeth Smart, Steven Staynor, Shawn Hornbeck and Ben Ownby are several examples. I wish all would be returned home safely, including custody issue kidnappings, but I am not naive enough to believe that this will happen. But please, when you are out and about, look at the people around you. Take notice of the children and teens. Maybe you can be someone’s hero and get them home.
