    WA - Purpose Goldsmith, 2, beaten to death, Federal Way, 21 Nov 2010

    King County sheriff's detectives have arrested a 28-year-old man suspected in the death of a Federal Way child.

    The man was taken into custody Monday morning, a day after the 2-year-old died en route to Harborview Medical Center, sheriff's office spokesman Sgt. John Urquhart said in a statement.
    .......................
    The girl's mother was at work, and the suspect, who is her live-in boyfriend, was taking care of the girl and her 4-year-old brother, the spokesman continued.
    .......................
    "Deputies and detectives believed the death was clearly suspicious," Urquhart said in a statement. "The girl had head trauma and numerous wounds on her body."

    RIP, precious one

    But if that drop was not in the ocean,
    I think the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.

    the Kent link for Komo wouldn't allow access, but directed to the Federal Way link. In that article it stated that the man has been arrested...

    The man was booked into jail for investigation of second-degree murder and was scheduled to make his first court appearance on Tuesday.

    Does anyone know how to check the jail inmate roster so that we will have a name to follow this case? and why is it 2nd degree murder instead of 1st!

    I think because he didn't plan to kill the child.

    yeah - that could be the one...they've added to the list since I looked at it..there were only 72 & now there's 85.

    Poor baby - I like to have their name & a picture..I wonder why they've not released her name yet (unless they still have to notify some other family members)?

    Court records show the 28-year-old was sentenced to 9 months in jail in 2005 after assaulting his young daughter.

    In that incident, the man's then 2-month-old daughter sustained seven broken ribs after he pushed down on her chest in an effort to stop her from crying.

    7 broken ribs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I think his previous record should mean that they can up the charge to 1st degree murder - he knew that he was capable of severly injuring and killing a child - not just because it's common sense but also because of his previous record

    Man beats 2 year old girl to death for soiling her diaper

    http://www.seattlepi.com/local/430707_child24.html

    Sheriff's detectives arrested the 28-year-old man on Monday, a day after the girl -- Purpose Goldsmith, his girlfriend's daughter -- died of head injuries allegedly sustained while in his care. The man -- who'd previously been convicted in an attack on his own child -- has not been charged in the slaying but is suspected of second-degree murder in Goldsmith's death.

    Detective: Federal Way man killed child for soiling diaper

    Purpose Goldsmith, 2, died of severe head injuries, wounds to body

    By LEVI PULKKINEN
    SEATTLEPI.COM STAFF

    A King County District Court judge has found probable cause to hold a Federal Way man accused in the death of a 2-year-old girl.

    Sheriff's detectives arrested the 28-year-old man on Monday, a day after the girl -- Purpose Goldsmith, his girlfriend's daughter -- died of head injuries allegedly sustained while in his care. The man -- who'd previously been convicted in an attack on his own child -- has not been charged in the slaying but is suspected of second-degree murder in Goldsmith's death.
    ......................
    "(The suspect) first stated he found Purpose unresponsive when he went to wake her and change her diaper," a sheriff's detective told the court.

    The suspect later admitted to hitting the girl six or seven times with a belt after she soiled her diaper, the detective continued. He is alleged to have admitted to shaking her until she went limp, slapping her in the head; the detective added that the 2-year-old's head "felt like Jello" due to the injuries.

    ==================================

    "Investigators wrote that Purpose had many bruises and her cut marks on her body, both old and new."

    and the perp's name is Ron Wallace, Jr.

    I am so tired of asking this question and never getting a reasonable answer.

    Why was this man, who served time for severly injuring his OWN child allowed into this mother's life and the lives or her children????? What are these women thinking?

    I will never understand. Even if they are stupid, they have to have read the news - seen these types of stories over and over, and yet it never occurs to these women that this may not be the right man for me and my kids!

    So sick of this.

    OMG!!!!!!!!! MAKE IT STOP!!!!!!!!!

    For just one day can we please have children not being beaten, sexually/verbally abused, starved, tortured, deprived, exposed to drugs & alcohol, left alone, left with people who kill them, run over, thrown out of cars, thrown into porn.... ETC, ETC, ETC... FOR THE LOVE OF GOD!!!!!!!

    The baby soiled his diaper.

    It truly says something about our society that he was released in the 1st place after the 2005 incident.

    This makes me absolutely sick! The problem is that too many women (and male single dads too) aren't thinking with their heads at all - they're thinking with their you-know-what! All they give a damn about is someone making "them" feel loved and beautiful and to hell with how he/she treats the kids. And the sad thing is that this is going to keep happening until these parents are charged, prosecuted and serve time for endangering their children. God, I'm so sick of this!!

    Bail has been set @ $2,000,000.00.

    He's been charged with Murder 2 (DV), a Class A Felony, according to the court records.
