I came across this story a couple of weeks agoe but lost track of the story due to a recent hospitalization. One thing I did read was a comment related by the STEPMONSTER to a friend. The comment was to the effect that i bruised my hand and arm after beating zahara for hours. There is a statment printed here that the STEPMONSTER has been arrested and charged with numerous offences unrelated to her disappearance. I hope and pray to the good Lord above that she is found safe. I don't have a lot of money but i would be willing to take sign language and do anything to help Zahara live in a home where she will not be beaten for hours, not to even swat a fly from her. Please oh please keep her from harm. How could her father not know about her being beaten. It is obvious to me that this ANIMAL would have no problem causing serious harm to this beautiful gift from God. I just spent the last 3 and a half hours hoping to find word of Zahara. There is hope for Zahara and hope others will join me in my pleas to return her to the safe hands of the police. I just can't believe her father and his choice of a true animal of a spouse could be considered a loving family. I am very sorry to say such harsh things about the demons she was cursed with, i just cant shake the horrible feelings i have towards them. I will let God punish me for my unchristian thoughts and feelings.

after my last post i searched and found a newspaper called the Hickory Ledger. The info supplied indicates the amber albert has been cancelled. zahara's prostetic leg was found alongside a road that witnesses claim seeing her father screaming in her face for not running up the hill quick enough. Landfill workers notified police of the discovery of a mattress now being dna testes.

after my last post i searched and found a hickory ledger newspaper. Witnesses are being requested to verify thelast data Zahara was seen. Family can recall Sept 28. The amber alert has been cancelled. Zahara's prostetic leg was found lying along side a road which witnesses claim seeing her father screaming in Zahara's face for not moving up the hill fast enough. A mattress was found at the town landfill by workers who notified police and is now being dna tested. Neighbors report watching and jeering Zahara's father as he loaded up a uhaul truck following an eviction notice.
After being led to an area, the stepmother indicated that her husband did something horrible after she herself beat Zahara injuring her hand while striking the prostetic leg. The chief of police has made several statements but I was unable to view as my heart sank at the thoughts of what this poor child endured during her life. The missing child search has been discontinued and is now a homicide investigation afer the stepmother led them to an area where bones were found and then immediately requested an attorney. I wondered why it was so hard for me to find information on Zahara but now i see that there would not have been any difference in that regard as it was already too late for Zahara. Did family not know how her life was. Did she ever get a break from those people. Maybe a weekend sleepover. My heart is truly broken but I know that God has taken Zahara unto his sweet embrace and she will never again know the pain of a beating, or the fear of a beating to come. No one will ever scream in her face to move faster. Now she will hear the loving words of God, and hear the birds sing. She can run thru fields of flowers and know joy every day. I do not have such kind words, thoughts or prayers for those who could perpetrate such evil on a true gift of God.

I visited the Hickory nc newspaper today http://www2.hickoryrecord.com/news/2010/nov/12/13/police-confirm-zahra-bakers-remains-have-been-foun-ar-532841/

and was completely devastated to learn dna tests have determined that bone found matches zahra. no child should have to endure a life of torture. missing children reports are always horrible, for some reason the smile and freckled face on her picture and hearing her story pulled at my heart. i so hoped for her return but when i heard of the stepmother breaking her hand beating her i just immediately felt something terribly wrong went on with that stepmother. Her father bonded out of jail and i wouldnt be surprised if he comits suicide out of guilt. i also hope the stepmother gets beaten and abused just like she did to zahra. i know about innocent til proven guilty. if im wrong ill admit it but i dont think i am. i hope every minute of everyday for the rest of her life she knows fear pain and misery. God can punish me for my evil thoughts and refusal to forgive.
