    Miracle...8 year old raped girl found alive in trash bin

    "Her hand just moved!" Matthews shouted.

    Moments later, the officers had unearthed an 8-year-old girl who had lived through a nightmare but survived to identify a teenager as her abductor, sexual attacker and would-be killer, police said."

    Actually this is about the third place this story has been posted. The original story was posted in Missing persons information and support:

    Sometimes it helps to do a search before you post a story, sometimes it doesn't.
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    I can't read any details on this child without crying. I cry because I'm so happy they found her alive and I cry because of the terrible way this deviant left her, thinking she would die.

    This is a happy ending. My heart goes out to this child and her family for what is ahead of them. I don't know what this world is coming to with the rash of kidnappings, assaults, and even deaths of children lately. I can't remember when it has ever been like this........

    I am posting what I just read on FoxNews:

    I wonder how LE knew to look there and how they saw the hand. What a miracle! God was definitely with her!

    Thank God she was right! Her family was shown on CNN last night upon hearing the news, and they were ecstatic! It gives me goose bumps all over again, thinking about it now.

    They also said on CNN last night that the perp had stated that it was 3 white men, and that they had beaten him up. Apparently LE took a closer look at him when they realized that he had no injuries from the alleged beating.

    I wonder why he was staying with the godmother; maybe she was a foster parent? I guess we can never know what another person might do.

    I think I heard last night that he was staying with the godmother as he'd been kicked out of his own house (neighbor?).

    From the link above:


    Holloman said Cunningham's mother lives in the Bahamas and he had been staying with an aunt until she accused him of stealing and kicked him out about four months ago. He then went to live at the home of Lisa Taylor, Holloman's mother and the girl's godmother.

    "He was a good person. He would clean and do chores, laugh and play jokes and stuff. We never thought he would do something like that," Holloman said. "The only reason I can think he went crazy like this is his father died and his mother didn't want him. Nobody wanted him."

    Holy Cow! Maybe they had a good reason for not wanting him.

    more info:

    The 8-year-old girl has since told a friend that she remembers her attacker towering over her before she passed out, then awoke seven hours later beneath a pile of rocks and concrete blocks when she heard the voices of rescuers.

    ``She said the last thing she remembers is that he looked over her with these big eyes and then she said she went to sleep. She said she was waiting for us to find her,'' said 18-year-old Danielle Holloman, a family friend who calls the girl her sister.

    ``She said she knew we would come get her. That's why as soon as the police came, she wiggled her fingers,'' Holloman said Monday.

    The girl was found Sunday morning when police Sgt. Mike Hall climbed into a 25-foot long trash bin, opened the lid to a 30-gallon recycling container and saw part of the girl's hand and foot peeking out from under heavy concrete slabs, said police Sgt. Dan Boland.

    He said rescuers feared the worst, but their mood turned jubilant when they realized she was alive.

    http://www.sun-sentinel.com/news/loc...home-headlines

    The two officers stared down at the pile of stones, saw only a small hand and a foot sticking out and assumed the little girl they had frantically searched for was dead.

    Finally, they had found her at a secluded landfill, her body stuffed inside a large bright yellow recycling bin, with rocks and crushed concrete covering her. The bin lay inside a trash container, a dismal last resting place.

    The officers summoned a superior, Lake Worth Detective Lt. Dave Matthews, who, after seven tense hours of hunting, also thought the case had ended in the worst of tragedies.

    And then something happened.

    "Her hand just moved!" Matthews shouted.

    Isn't that a miracle though. Why did they ever think to look where she was.
    I heard on the news that the first thing that she asked for was their minister because she wanted to thank God that she was alright. What a kid

    I'll bet her rescuers were absolutely jubilant when they saw her hand move! My daughter's ex-husband is a firefighter. When he was just 17, he responded to a call where a little girl had fallen into a cistern and drowned. A few days later he had a call where a man had let his car roll into the ocean with two kids inside. One was dead and the other very brain damaged for life. I thought he would quit; he was so upset! Just a kid himself. But he told me what a wonderful thing it is when you can actually help; the reward for the hard work involved. I am so glad these rescuers had a reward that day.
