Ten year old Ame Deal was killed by family members for stealing a popsicle

Some stories are horrible and this is one of them. Ame Deal was killed by her cousin because she took a popsicle without permission. She was stuffed in a trunk. Initially her family members said she had crawled inside while playing hide and go seek, but the police have determined that this child was subjected to unspeakable evil. What makes this story even sadder is neighbors suspected abuse but no one ever called the authorities. We all try to stay out of trouble and out of our neighbors business but when is it appropriate to get involved?  Tell me what you think.

    I think that the people who were living in tents in the yard should be charge with being an accessory to murder. This is so unimaginable. I am numb.

    Neighbors also saw her walking up and down the street 18 times without shoes as a punishment. They then suggested she put on some shoes !!! it’s is like they were approving of the abuse when an a phone call to the police/CPS takes only a minute. The seemed to have been supporting the parents.

    This is regarding my niece Ame i feel that ithe neighbors should have phoned in to the Police and have said that they would like to have some one to come out and check what was going on even if they would have had got a couple of neighbors to call in and report it maybe they would have saved her life. Someone should have said something but nobody obviously cared about my niece cause she is dead now cause of a bunch of jerks that didnt want her.I feel they ALL should get punished the same as the rest of them. Her family in Pennsylvania is going to miss her sooooooooooooooooooooooooo much……..shes a little angel now that didnt deserve to die.I do have more to say but i cant say it on here……AME we miss you very deeply…Your in Gods hands now…..Love You Sweet Ame…………….Aunt Rosie
