Authorities Have Moved in the Baby Grace Case

Mother of Riley Sawyers Arrested

Actions to be Applauded


Authorities have moved in the Baby Grace case.

Police closed in on Riley Sawyers’ mother and her companion, and quietly and quickly arrested the couple. They are being held on $350,000 bond each.

Galveston County authorities have arrested a couple in the case of a missing child who may be “Baby Grace,” the toddler whose body washed ashore in a storage bin in Galveston Bay last month.

Authorities are awaiting DNA test results but have tentatively identified the girl as 2-year-old Riley Ann Sawyers of Spring, said Maj. Ray Tuttoilmondo of the Galveston County Sheriff’s Department.

The girl’s mother, Kimberly Dawn Trenor, 19, and Royce Clyde Zeigler II, 24, reportedly told relatives that she was taken in July by someone claiming to be an Ohio social worker. But they never told police she was missing, Tuttoilmondo said.

After police searched their home, they were arrested early Saturday and charged with injury to a child and tampering with evidence, Tuttoilmondo said. The couple remain jailed on bonds of $350,000 each. It’s unclear if they are married, Tuttoilmondo said.
