O’Neal Blackwell comforts his daughter Misty at the unveiling ceremony for the “How are the Children?” memorial statue Wednesday afternoon on the front lawn of the Mesa County Courthouse. Misty was one of the foster mothers for Angel Place, a toddler who died from child abuse in another foster home.
More than 60 people attended the dedication of the statue which lists the names of 13 children who have died from child abuse or neglect since 2006. Blue and white balloons were released in their honor.
A Parachute couple wanted following their infant daughter’s murder gave away their location in Minnesota this week when they used a federal food-assistance card at a gas station.
