    Finally! From your link:
    The case of a father accused of concealing the body of his missing 3-month-old daughter will go before a grand jury.
    ...
    Prosecutors played an interview in court in which Terry told police that he buried the infant’s body in Montgomery County.

    He said he had been fighting with the mother of Arieanna Day the day she was reported missing.

    Terry told officers he went to pick up the baby, but when he got her, she was bruised, but alive.
    Father told police he hid body of 3-month-old Roanoke baby, court testimony reveals
    Terry picked up Arieanna who was alive but bruised at the time. He was afraid to take her to a hospital for treatment. While he had her, she died. He says he buried Arieanna in a shallow grave in the area of Jennelle Road near Ellet Road in Montgomery County. LE couldn't find her at that location even though Terry swears it's the right place.

    If this is true then mom has been lying all along. I'll say no more for now.

    Why was he afraid to take his badly injured baby to the hospital, to save her life? If he picked her up, and she was injured at that time, why couldn't he take her in and save her?

    Sounds like he's blaming the Mom for something that he did. I hope LE finds this sweet baby soon.

    Also, he says she was badly bruised at the time. IIRC, there were several older sibling and some family friends in the home that day and night. Surely one of them would have noticed if the baby was badly injured? You cannot have an adorable infant girl in the home with friends visiting, and not have them holding her and playing with her. I hope they come forward.

    Much more detailed article:

    From the mother, who's now been named:
    From Terry:
    Father of missing baby told police he buried her in shallow grave

    There's more in the article. Some highlights:
    -Day and Terry had a "turbulent relationship" with Day saying she had filed for custody and child support.

    -Day admitted on cross that she did not want to be a mom for the fifth time.

    -Terry took a polygraph exam - results not disclosed.

    -Terry took officers to the burial location on September 12 but LE couldn't find Arieanna nor could cadaver dogs later in the evening. LE couldn't find evidence of a baby or a grave.

    I'm trying to remember what exits are on 81 from Roanoke to Christiansburg. I think that Ironto exit is the first one after leaving Roanoke/Salem exits. I don't know that's where he really put her though. We do have bear, coyotes in that area, so it's possible something dug her up, but I think police would have seen some evidence of that. I don't know where he put her, but I think he murdered her.

    I've been sitting on my hands, BUT there's just something about all of this that's making me think they were in on this together.

    Oh let's see, my wife doesn't know I had an affair and now have a baby. But I think it's a good idea to steal the baby, and bring it home to her. I'll just say I found it on the road and can we keep it! Yup, that should work!


    He had no intention but evil in taking the baby! I don't know if she was injured at the time or not, but his reasoning makes zero sense. Just what did he think he was going to do with her after he got home? See? It's lies!

    Totally agree with you 2Hope4! Doesn't make too much sense....

    and this is strange - I can't get into the Virginia - Montgomery County - court site anymore.... [​IMG]

    But I know his next date in court is 10/29 - a Revocation hearing - whatever "that" is??!!

    It's possible, but I don't get that vibe. I think her version makes a lot more sense. He snuck in and took the child, which he was being sued over for child support, while married to another woman---and he disposed of his problem.

    I don't see any reason for Mom to have done anything violent. She was suing for custody and child support. Sounds like she was taking on full responsibility. Which she had done 4x already.

    But she did say under oath that she didn't want to be a mother for a fifth time. Still, only Terry has been arrested so unless that changes it looks like he's the only person responsible for Arieanna's murder. MOO.

    True, and it is understandable that a single mother of 4, being pregnant by a married man, would not be thrilled with the situation. But once she accepted it, which she must have done, since she went ahead and had the sweet baby, she had no reason to harm her. JMO

    True and I agree with the reservation that right now we don't know how much LE released about the original story - taken at face value it implies she left stuff out. But if LE chose to hold back the rest of it then yeah, I think she's not involved. MOO.

    She said when she first found out she was pregnant again that she didn’t want another child. I know many women who have felt the same.

    Poor Arieanna has dropped to page 8 on ws. There have been 3 or 4 missing infants/toddlers over the past month or two. The others have all been found. I don’t understand why this case doesn’t have people outraged.
