Mourners left wooden crosses, angels and other reminders of a 2-year-old girl that made headlines worldwide as “Baby Grace”.

The memorial service, held in Mentor, OH, previously the home of Riley Sawyers and her family, before she and her mother moved to Texas.

Riley, whose body was identified as that of Baby Grace, was beaten and tortured by her mother, Kimberly Trenor, and her husband/companion, Clyde Zeigler II.

“Hundreds came Sunday to the Brunner Funeral Home to remember Riley Sawyers and other loved ones as part of the Brunner’s Annual Tree of Remembrance Service. Those who honored their family also took a moment to comfort family and friends of Riley, whose body was found floating in a plastic container in Galveston Bay this summer.”

Riley’s relatives are touched by the support and telephone calls they are receiving from around the country, said Laura DePledge, the Sawyers’ attorney. Relatives are raising money to help bring Riley’s body to Ohio to be buried.

Though the physical memorial service was held in Ohio, Riley Sawyers and “Baby Grace” will be mourned much further away.

When it was speculated that Baby Grace’s body might be that of Madeline McCann, a missing English girl, papers all over the United Kingdom and Europe carried her story.Read rest of the story:
