Baby Grace has a name, Evil has two more faces



(photo credit KRIV Fox 26)
Meet 2 year old Riley Ann Sawyers, AKA Baby Grace. Her broken and decomposing body was found in a plastic box on a desolate beach on a small island in Galveston Bay back in October. Her mother, Kimberly Trenor, and stepfather Royce Zeigler, have been arrested in her death. Kimberly Trenor was living with Robert Sawyers in Mentor Ohio and the couple lived with Robert Sawyers' mother, Sheryl Sawyers, for two years. While still married to Robert, Kimberly began communicating with Royce Zeigler online early this year. Zeigler began sending expensive gifts to Kimberly while she still lived with Robert. In late May or early June, Kimberly left with her daughter and moved to Spring to marry Zeigler. The couple claim that an Ohio CPS agent took the child from their home in Spring in July, but there was no Ohio CPS agent. Perhaps Zeigler didn't know about Riley until her and her mother arrived in Spring, or perhaps Zeigler is a previously unknown/unreported pedophile and Riley was one of the attractions, either with or without her mother's knowledge. At this point it is hard to say what the situation was in the home, but the result is the same. Riley is dead, probably at the hand of either Zeigler or Trenor.

I can't read articles like this. I guess me having a precious 3 year old daughter and then hearing what another parent could do to theirs just makes me absolutely sick.

Don, I have a 6 year old and a 13 year old, it tears me up to think about this myself.

This story is so incredibly tragic. What could a baby ever do to deserve such a cruel death? It's just disgusting.

I look at the girl's face and just don't understand it. Hell I'd have adopted her if her family didn't want her. I just don't understand what goes on in peoples' minds sometimes.

I just read today in the Galveston newspaper that the Mother is pregnant now (in a medical unit of the jail). Pregnant with that fat monster's baby!! Unbelievable!!

This story is truly disgusting. As the father of a three year old little girl it makes me truly angry that there are people who would do this to a defenseless toddler. Royce and individuals like him are obviously weak, and sickening animals. In my opinion he deserves a fate more terrible than Rileys. It is my hope that he will receive the death penalty, so we let monsters like him know that this type of action will not be tolerated. In closing I would like to add, if The State of Texas is looking for someone to throw the switch, put me
at the top of the list.

anon, I suspect you'll have to take a number if you want to pull the switch. You might just have to fight me for the job.

How can anyone beat a child so ruthlessly...it brings tears to my eyes....I assume they wanted to
kill the kid otherwise they would have never beaten her so badly at the first place..I just wish those
two mannerless and demeaning adults be punished ruthlessly by god and also by the law. We all love you baby Riley. May your soul rest in peace.
