The police in Massachusetts are asking for help in identifying this poor girl and in determining the circumstances of her death. 

The girl is about 4 years old.

She is Caucasian and may be Hispanic but this is uncertain.  

She had brown eyes and brown hair. She was about 3 and one half feet tall. She weighed about 30 pounds. 

She was wearing long white pants with black polka dots made by "Circo". 

A black and white zebra stripe blanket made by "Cannon" was found with the body. 

Anyone with any information is urged to call the Massachusetts state police at 508-820-2121.

Help the Police to give this girl a name and thereby a proper burial. 

Pray for justice for this
poor child. 
Help to determine how this girl died and why she was abandoned in a garbage bag. 

There were no visible signs of trauma on this child's body. Hopefully the cause of her death will be determined by an autopsy. 

The Massachusetts public is urged to contact the telephone number above if you know of a child who is missing from day care, or who hasn't shown up at a park where she played or at a church Sunday School or anywhere else where you frequently saw a young girl who is suddenly no longer there. 

This child is innocent and is playing in the fields of Heaven. 

Pray for justice for this girl in Massachusetts. 

God save us from those who place children in a garbage bag and throw them onto the shore. Amen.

Nick Struck - a caring Police Officer in Colorado

On June 18, 2015, a terrible tragedy befell a family of six who were driving on a roadway in Brighton, Colorado. 

The family's vehicle blew a tire and veered off the side of the highway.  The vehicle rolled over and all of the passengers were thrown from the vehicle. The father of the family was fatally injured and died at the scene of the accident.

The mother and three of the four children were also injured and were rushed to a local hospital. 

The youngest child, a 2 year old girl, was found alive and uninjured. Paramedics handed the girl to Officer Nick Struck of the Brighton Police Department. 

The child was reeking of gasoline fumes and she was frightened and crying. 

Nick is a father of a 2 year old daughter himself. He stated that when his daughter falls down and cries she wants him to sing "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star" to her. 

So Nick sang that nursery rhyme to the frightened little girl and tried to distract her from the horrific accident scene by pointing to the twinkling lights on the fire truck. The child relaxed a bit and put her arm on Nick's shoulder just as his own daughter does. 

Jessica Matrious, who stopped to help at the accident scene, took this photo of Nick and the child which has since gone viral on the Internet.  Many people have been impressed with the fatherly efforts of Officer Nick Struck to help this poor girl. 

Nick said that what he did is no different than what any other police officer would do under the same circumstances. 

He asked that everyone remember the family in prayer.
