    The Lake County Coroner’s office said an autopsy determined Coley had a torn stomach as the result of blunt force trauma and those injuries led to her death.
    The girl’s mother, Nicholette Lawrence, allegedly told police she struck the girl in the stomach earlier that week.

    32-year-old Nicolette Lawrence is held on a $5 million dollars bond after her 11-year-old daughter Raasania Coley died Saturday.

    That poor child! What a painful slow death she must have endured.

    I understand getting angry at children. But I would never have punched them. I used to say "I'm really angry right now, so you need to leave the room or I will, because I don't want to do anything you and I might regret." I admit my kids were spanked a couple of times in their life, but it was always when I was able to control my anger and it was never done out of rage. As an adult, it is your responsibility to be in control of your emotions.

    Ok, I'll get off my soap box now. :tantrum:

    This little one must have been in pain & agony for days before she died. :(
    Did she go to school this last week? I imagine she would have been in too much pain??
    Was she left writhing in a room in agony & ignored until she became unresponsive?
    Unbelievable.

    I can't imagine the thought process going on in your head, that you would punch your child. Eleven years old.

    I read this in the news yesterday. What causes someone to single out one child? Why was this sweet baby the punching bag for this woman? I couldn't see the comment on her facebook because it's been taken down.

    Hmm, you're right. That one post complaining about Raasania being a difficult child is gone, and yet everything else is still there. Usually the entire profile vanishes.

    Police responded to the home on June 21 after an anonymous caller reported a child may have been beaten. But Kelly said that case was still open and declined to provide details about what officers found that night

    “The home was dirty and they found vomit that had not been cleaned up,” Vargas said. “The defendant also admitted to beating the girl with an extension cord in the past.

    According to Waukegan Public Schools, Raasania was pulled out of school during the 2012-13 school year.

    fortunately at least one person got a screen cap and lovejac linked it above. I too now have it tucked safely away.

    So sad when a child is apparently scapegoated by a caretaker to receive the brunt of all the anger rage and wrath they cannot seem to control. Vile horrible behavior. I hope she pays the max penalty.

    Okay, just found it still there on her page, it is not gone, it is posted on Mach 11, 2012 and has 3 comments beneath it.

    FB has a habit of hiding some of your posts if you post a lot sometimes you need to look for the tagline beneath posts that reads "more posts from between [date range]" When you click that the comments that FB hid return.

    What a beautiful girl she was ! :(

    Rest gently, Raasania !!

    Too bad the punishment can't fit the crime.
