Who Killed “Baby Grace”, 2-year-old Riley Sawyers?

Clyde Zeigler’s Attorney Says “he innocent”

The Battle Begins Between Two People who May Face the Death Penalty 

The opening salvo was launched a few minutes ago in what is expected to be a fight to the death between Kimberly Trenor and Clyde Zeigler II.

The mother and stepfather of Riley Sawyers, until recently only known to the world as “Baby Grace” began a few minutes ago when Zeigler’s attorney, Neal Davis III, issued a statement saying that Zeigler “is positively not guilty of the offense for which he stands charged”.

The battle begins between the two people present when 2-year-old Riley Sawyers was savagely beaten to death in July.

It’s a fight to death as Zeigler and Trenor were both indicted by a Texas grand jury yesterday in the savage beating death of 2-year-old Riley Sawyers, then dumping her body in Galveston Bay.

The storage container containing the body was found by a fisherman after it washed up on a sandbar a little over 6 weeks ago.

Both Zeigler and Trenor could face the death penalty in Texas, if convicted.

Trenor had previously told reporters that Zeigler ‘had lost control while disciplining Riley’.


An attorney for the stepfather accused of killing the toddler known as ‘Baby Grace’ said Thursday that his client didn’t kill the girl, and blamed her mother for mischaracterizing what happened.

Kimberly Dawn Trenor unfairly pinned the blame for 2-year-old Riley Ann Sawyer’s death on her husband, Royce Clyde Zeigler II, the attorney said.

“The death of this innocent child, however, was absolutely not caused by any action attributed to my client,” Neal Davis III said in a statement.
