I am so sorry for your loss. I have been forever touched by your story and I will always remeber your little angel taken far to soon. May she always rest in peace in Gods hands. And know that her story has touched may lives as it has touched mine forever. Close
I live in Houston and remember when they found Riley's body in Galveston. My daughter is the same age as Riley. I absolutely was appalled. I cannot believe such brutality was taken out on an innocent soul. I just saw your story on discovery ID (I'm a religious watcher), and it brings tears to my eyes every time. My heart goes out to you and your family.
I just watched the Show on tv about Riley Ann and it bought me to tears. How can any parent be so mean and hateful to one so young and beautiful as Riley Ann. I have 2 childern of my own and I worship the ground that they walk on. In just 20 short years I have personnaly lost three childre in my family. In 1991 my first born daughter was taken just 26 hours afetr birth, by a blood disorder called trisomy 13. After lots of research and talks with doctors I now know that she is in a beetter place with the good lord watching down on me. In 2005 my sister's two children were taken from their front yard and were found four days later. Unfortually they had been murdered, the person or persons responbable never found. It was just last year that I have been able to get some closure on my little angle Amber Marie. My new wife has known about her every sense we started dating and she paid for me to get a memorial tattoo done in memeory of her. I know how you feel and the pain for me me has never left and never will. You have some great people out there for you. I love the site you have put up for your beautiful grand daughter. One thing that my mom told me about my daughter that helped me, I asked her why she had to died and hurt me so bad and my mom told me that God needed more pretty flowers for him to take care of. That has stayed in my mind for 20 years and it helps me alot.
Before today, I had not heard of your grandaughter's horrific death. I am a mother of three girls and it haunts me to know that such cruelty could have been shown to a child... the thought that even after poor Riley was tortured she still told her mom that she loved her fills me with deep sorrow... I just don't understand what can go soooo wrong in a mother that she could not just allow but participate in such a horrible deed.... I hurt for Riley and for you her surviving family.... There is no imagining your hurt and so I offer my condolence and pray that God continues to bless you with the Grace to cope. Your story will forever be imbedded in my soul and a constant reminder that violence is never discipline and love will never allow violence. I'm truly sorry... once again. God Bless you.

HI MY NAME IS JAMIE AND I SEEN THIS STORY ON TV AND WHEN I SAY I WAS OVERCOME WITH TEARS AND ANGER AS AM I A YOUNG MOTHER AND I ALSO STAY WITH MY CHILD'S FATHER MOTHER. I CANT BELIEVE WHAT SHE HAS DONE TO SUCH A BEAUTIFUL CHILD AND DURING THE INTERROGATION SHE EVEN STATED THAT RILEY TOLD HER SHE LOVE HER EVEN AFTER SHE BEAT HER RIGHT BEFORE SHE DIED.......
IM LITERALLY IN TEARS BUT AS A YOUNG MOTHER I HAVE ALSO FLARED OUT IN RAGE AFTER MY NOW 5 YEAR OLD AND THOUGHT IT WAS 'DISCIPLINE' (NOT WITH A BELT NOR OBJECT) BUT AFTER SEEING THIS ITS BEEN THREE MONTHS AND I'VE WENT ABOUT DISCIPLINE A WHOLE OTHER WAY I NOW DO TIME OUTS AND NO TV I WOULD NEVER WANT TO HURT MY CHILD UNINTENTIONALLY OUT OF RAGE WHICH IS SO EASY TO DO BEING THAT THEY ARE SO SMALL AND FRAGILE. THIS STORY EVEN THOUGH I CANT IMAGINE HOW HARD IT WAS FOR YOU TO SHARE WAS A WAKE UP CALL AND NOW INSTEAD OF LOOKING AT MY DAUGHTER AS A ANNOYANCE I TREASURE EVERY HAIR ON HER HEAD AND WILL NEVER TAKE HER FOR GRANTED AND I WILL DO EVERYTHING IN GODS WILL TO PROTECT HER. THANKS FOR SHARING YOUR STORY YOU AND YOUR FAMILY WILL ALWAYS BE IN MY PRAYERS!!!!

Riley I did not know u but I think of u often. Your story broke my heart, i wish i could have saved u or someone could have saved u. The articles I read really made me mad because people saw your bruises (Ms Ziegler) but did not report it or did CPS not do their job:( Rest in peace baby girl, god knew u couldnt take any more pain, i hope those 2 monsters get what is coming to them..all over the internet u lost your life. I wish they never met and your mother didnt move in with a man she didnt even know I have so many wishes for u but the past cannot be changed and all i can do is hope God is holding u in his arms and u are playing in heaven with all the other victimized children. God bless your soul Riley. Your body was found for a reason and in so glad it was found,. Close

Criminal Pursuit was just on TV and I'm very shocked by what I saw!
I can not imagine that you could do something like this to your child. My heart broke when I saw and heard what Riley Ann has been trough, I couldn't bear, I'm really shocked....It is too terrible for words!
Children are curious, naughty and trying everything out. How sick in your head do you have to be to do something like this to your child!
I hope they both never released from prison, and that karma will get back on them!
I hope that Riley Ann is at peace with the angels.
I am a mother of two little girls (3 and 1 year) and the thought that something would happen to them makes me very scared.
I wish you, the father and the rest of the family very much strength for this terrible loss!
My prayers are with you and Riley Ann.
Lots of love and hugs,
I'm sorry / Francesca A. (none)
I just wanted to express my deepest condolences for the loss of your precious granddaughter. I myself have been a victim of domestic violence and after I finally was able to get away from my abuser I found out some of the horrible things he had done to my daughter. I am fighting with everything I have to keep him away from her but he is fighting right back.
Your story is inspirational to me and gives me strength to fight back. I don't know what kind of people could beat and torture a baby like that. I have to 100% agree that if a man is doing that to a child the mother should be defending the child to the death. I hope that someday you may find peace and may you be re-united with her in heaven.

I saw Riley's story on FBI:Criminal Pursuit. I was horrified while watching and learning what that sweet little girl went through.
I have a daughter who just turned three years old and want to assure you that though I never met Riley I will never forget her. Each time I look at or hold my own daughter I am reminded of beautiful little Riley. Close

Riley was such a beautiful little girl you could
see the love you had so deeply for your grand daughter
and my heart is broken for you. I was glad to
see that your son has married and had 2 sons
and I hope this helps him deal with what must
be a daily struggle to deal with the fact that Riley
was stolen from him. I just want to add I admired
the hard work the detectives put in to bring justice
for Riley and you can clearly see she has left
a mark on their lives as she has mine now she was
a truly beautiful child and my memory of her will
be of the photo of her Daddy pushing her along
in the snow you can see the joy and love. X Close

Riley/ Holly Harrison (no)
As a mom to a 3 yr old the poem broke my heart. Its little things with your child like going shopping that mean the most. I couldnt agree with Leila Momeni more on her comment below listening to Kimberly on tv describing Rilelys last day made me physically ILL. it is hard to go on and say Riley is in a better place u think i wish i could have saved this child. Every time I see my child now I hug him a little tighter and remember Rileys story. It is so sad that she went through this for so long that it ended in death and no child protective services or anyone could save her. God knew she needed no more pain. Close

Riley I thought of you today as I often do. I did not know you but your story touched my heart. The people who did this to you will recieve karma for what they did to you and in the meantime u will fly with the angels. God rest your soul. Your story broke my heart and brought tears to my eyes many times and still does Close

Hi me and my family have just heard of the baby grace story from England and wish to send our best wishes and condolences. We all sympathize with the situation and pray God rewards you and your family and relatives well for the pain you have gone through that of which i can't begin to imagine. I hope that there is never another repeat of such atrocity ever again and your story reaches everyone just as it has me and my family. I would like to finish by advising you and your family to stay strong and know that little baby Grace has moved on to a better place. Close
