    AR - Michael Palmer, 28, & Hannah Dowdie, 23 mos, murdered, Sweet Home, 12 Dec 2009

    Michael Palmer and his daughter, Hannah Grace Dowdie, had not been seen since Saturday. The bodies, found burned beyond recognition on dead-end Wilbern Road near Granite Mountain Quarries, were in a small GMC truck registered to Palmer, Rehrauer said.

    The deaths have been ruled homicides. I wonder who did it? Oh, wait, here's another tidbit from the story:

    Saline County court records show that Dowdie [the mom, who has lost custody] burned her daughter with a cigarette in April last year, then called police and said a stranger did it. When a Saline County sheriff’s deputy asked her about it, however, Dowdie confessed.
    “I did it,” Dowdie told the deputy, according to th e court records. “I burned her. I need help.”

    This is sick. Once again, a perfect example of someone who shouldn't be allowed to breed.

    This is so sad. Rest in Paradise. I hope they catch whoever did this.

    Wow, this is shocking and terribly sad. I wonder if the mom has anything to do with it?

    Here's a picture of the sweet little girl.

    What a shame.

    On mom's (KD's) "myYearbook" page, she says she's 6 ft tall, and says what she'd like to see before she dies is "my daughter." Also says the things most important to her are "family," "sex," and "kinky, kinky."

    Foster parents

    Here's a very small article of the foster parents of this poor little speaking out. They went to DHS with concerns that Hannah was most likely in danger with her bio father.

    I didn't see where it stated that Filly.

    "The Carrs say they went to DHS with concerns for Hannah's safety, but Kevin says their cries for help were ignored.

    So did the mother lose custody and then DHS gave her to her dad?

    That's what it sounds like to me.

    "Hannah's foster parents cared for her until November 11, and now they are speaking out about the girl they loved as their own."

    Just hazarding a guess here but it sounds as if the Carr foster family cared for Hannah from a very young age...possibly birth.....and she was returned to her bio Dad a month before this happened. Foster parents often may give their opinions about a court action but do not have actual standing in court. JMO

    After her mother (K. Dowdie) burned her with a cigarette in April of 2008 --
    "Child-welfare workers took custody of Hannah after her release from a hospital, according to the court records.
    Dowdie pleaded guilty to second-degree battery and filing a false police report and was sentenced in August 2008 to six years’ probation." http://www.nwaonline.com/news/2009/d...hter-20091216/ Her parents were not together. I don't know if the father had custody or not. But I think probably the mother was not allowed visitation because in her myYearbook page she says she'd like to see her daughter before dying..

    Short news story from Jan 1, 2008, when Hannah was born:
    "It's official.

    The first baby born in Central Arkansas this year, arrived at UAMS early this morning.

    Hannah Grace Dowdie was born at 2:57 AM.

    Her mother, 19 year old Kayla Dowdie is from Saline County.

    She went into labor about 8:00 last night.

    New Yearís Day morning Kayla said she was tired, of course.... but very thankful.

    "She's a miracle baby... I've miscarried twice before," she said."

    Four months later, Dowdie was burning her daughter with a cigarette.

    Dear God! What a darling little girl. How could someone do this? I too wonder about the mother. It's a sick world out there anymore.

    Bold mine.

    I didn't see this part about the bio father in the article, unless they have revised the article since you posted. I wonder if it was either the mom, or if it could have been someone who had a beef with bio dad. Doesn't seem like dad would catch her and himself on fire as a suicide. Someone else must have done this. JMO.
