Murder Of Riley Ann Sawyer 

On the 29th of July 2007 in Texas, fisherman at Galveston Bay found a body of a little girl in a container. 

The body was that of 2 year old Riley Ann Sawyer, who was murdered days before on 24th of July. The infant’s mother Kimberly Trenor and her stepfather Royce Ziegler beat the girl with leather belts, Ziegler chucked the defenceless infant against the wall and they watched her struggle to stand. During the brutal attack Riley cried “I Love You” for them to stop. Sawyer later died from her injuries, a coroner claimed her injuries were similar to someone who fell from a rooftop. 

The trial was delayed due to Kimberly being pregnant again 

In February 2009, Kimberly Sawyer was sentenced to life and in November 2009 so was Royce Ziegler
