    MI - Savannah Pioch, 4, beaten to death, Michigan City, 12 Sept 2008

    What is going on in this world? Are children just disposable?

    A four year old girl in Michigan City was found dead after a call of a child not breathing. Mom and step-dad arrested. Neighbors say there's quite a few teens who also live in the home and this little girl and one teen seemed to be hungry all the time and they fed them?

    the neighbor said that the mom was mostly worried about whether or not she'd go to jail b/c her daughter had bruises all over her face.

    that spells GUILTY to me. she was more worried about going to jail than freaking out because her four year old defensless daughter was dead? either she or her husband clearly tortured and killed this poor little girl. and tortured the other kid as well.

    This is so sad. I'm so tired of all this horrible stuff.
    I wonder where her biological father is?And what she actually died from? I wish we could torture every adult whoe does something horrible to a child.

    I sat there for the longest time
    after you were gone....
    thinking about all things we said.....
    and all the things we didn't say...
    I wonder if you misunderstood,
    cause I'm no good when it comes to talking....
    And I'm sorry,I didn't know the words.......
    to make you stay.

    Ahhh, sweet darling Savannah, may you rest in peace, and sleep sweetly with the angels. How I wish your life had been different.

    I am just heartbroken, yet once again.

    From October 2009:

    http://www.wbiw.com/state/archive/20...-in-prison.php

    A Michigan City man will spend 45 years in prison... under the terms of a plea agreement reached with prosecutors over the death of his 4-year-old stepdaughter...

    Scott Bruce agreed to plead guilty to felony neglect of a dependent.
    From June 2011:

    http://www.thenewsdispatch.com/news/...9dcb4e047.html

    “Melissa received the maximum 20-year sentence on neglect of a dependent, a Class B felony, and the minimum on neglect, a Class A felony,” La Porte County Chief Deputy Prosecutor Robert Neary said.

    Lang sent Melissa to prison in February after she entered a plea agreement, admitting to her part in the death of her daughter...

    Lang recounted how, on Friday, Sept. 12, 2008, Melissa and Scott were in the bedroom with Savannah after she soiled her pants. “According to (Melissa), Scott started screaming at Savannah and began hitting her in the head. As a result, Savannah fell to the floor, causing further injury.”

    On the next morning, Sunday, Lang wrote, Savannah’s eyes were swollen shut, her face was bruised and puffy and purple and her head was swollen. Scott and Melissa put Savannah in their bedroom. “Over the next six days, Savannah never left that room.”
