    A criminal complaint states Thomasson killed Presley while committing or attempting to commit child abuse.

    [...]

    Investigators said Thomasson lived with Porting's biological father at the time of the girl's death. She's being held at the Johnson County Jail on $2 million bond.

    The Heavy has more info on relationships and how many other children were living in the household:

    Also from The Heavy article:
    Presley’s funeral was held on February 16, according to her obituary, which does not mention Thomasson.

    The obituary recommended memorial contributions be made to Bikers Against Child Abuse, among other charities.

    Thanks Indy for starting the thread! I thought about starting one yesterday, sometimes KC news doesn't follow thru with a story so it is hard to update. For example I remember when they were investigating little Presley death and then we hear nothing until yesterday when Thomasson is arrested.

    I am sure curious as to what happened with Thomasson being an excellent babysitter as stated in the Heavy article to an abuser. Then to having a $2 million dollar bond, it must be something quite serious.

    She was a cute little baby doll for sure.

    Rip little Presley! The angels are watching over you now!

    so it sounds to me like another woman popped up pregnant when Lindsey was pregnant, or an affair? maybe she resented the little girl

    Nothing in the news that I can find yet. So much about Jessica and Kara lately which is understandable.

    Such a beautiful child, I agree DatelineFan. Really hard to dredge up any sympathy.

    A Grandfather commented in one of the news stories. Call him or another family member, say you're at the end of your rope, we need help.

    Hi Sleuths,
    Long time member, first time poster here. Well, second time technically, I just tried to post but the device I was using restarted so I don't know what happened to it. I think I may have included some information which, re-reading the forum rules, isn't allowed so I hope it didn't go through, but I can't find it anywhere to edit or delete it.

    Back to the topic - I wondered the same thing regarding an affair but Presley and her sibling were a couple of months apart in age so it's possible that Presley's mother became pregnant toward the end of her relationship with the father and Thomasson became pregnant at the beginning of a new relationship.
    Such a tragedy for the families, specially the other children.

    Any news? I see Lindsey's Father was arrested last week on drug charges. But that really has nothing to do with this case, or does it?
