Anonymous Seeking Justice After Charges Dropped in Brutal Killing of 2-Year-Old
A letter previously submitted to the court by Savannah's grandmother sums up how horrifying Savannah's death was:
Our family does not get to go visit Savannah anymore in between our trials and pain. But, when we do, we go on top of a mountain more than a thousand miles away where she is buried, overlooking the valley she was born in. Savannah's remains were bruised from head to toe, front to back, hair in tatters, skin on multiple areas -torn, cut, bitten, blinded, forcibly raped and forcibly sodomized, left to die in her own feces and urine as she cried out in anguish, only to be ignored.And no one's facing any punishment for that -- again, for now.
Savannah's remains were so damaged, we could not have a public viewing. Savannah was unrecognizable. Our family is left to live with that pain and torment ... and without Savannah to brighten the day or let us relish in the successes she now will never have. We can go visit the place her bruised and tattered remains now lay, but she will never be able to sit in her Grammy's lap ... ever again.
That's still upsetting to Anonymous, which places some specific blame in its press release:
Anonymous and the Cross family wish to thank the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office, Phoenix Police Homicide Division, all first responders, and the Maricopa County Attorney's office for a job well done. We stand fully in support of each of you. Our opinion of the Medical Examiner's office differs slightly.Indeed, there's a website set up by Anonymous with information on the case, and some calls for action.
Maricopa County Medical Examiner's Office; you now have our attention. It is clear that you have sat on this case in order to try and boost your budget. Anonymous, the people of Arizona, and the people of the World reject this tactic. It is on you to ensure that this evidence is now processed promptly and correctly so that these monsters may be recharged. Put simply, do your job. We are watching you. Fail and you may expect us.
Anonymous has learned that Savannah's mother, Ashley Dattoli Livengood, is now employed by the Veterans Administration Hospital in Phoenix. Anonymous rejects this as suitable employment for Ms. Livengood. It is our collective opinion that this individual, regardless of licensing, is unfit to care for our veterans or for anyone else. We hereby demand her discharge, effective immediately.
All be advised that Anonymous is watching this case very closely. We demand justice for Savannah Cross.
People with Anonymous have raised a lot of hell for other causes, so who knows what might happen if the charges don't come back some time soon.
