Exeter prays for Sophia
May 11 2011
EXETER, Calif. (KFSN) -- A little Exeter girl is in grave condition at this hour. And many who gathered at a vigil are demanding justice.


Many residents are angered and even outraged at what happened to this little girl. We are not showing her picture because many residents believe this young victim was sexually abused in addition to being physically abused.

Throughout the night people stopped by the vigil for three-year-old Sophia who remains in grave condition at Children's Hospital in Madera.

A few hours earlier, dozens gathered in prayer for her at the park. Many who didn't even know her came out anyway.

Mara Alcorn said, "It's very sad. Very sad things going on and the community came together to bless the little girl."

Exeter Police say Sophia suffered head trauma inside this apartment Saturday and that her injuries are suspicious in nature.

Police also told us the child's mother and her boyfriend, are persons of interest in this case. They have not been arrested.

We caught up with the child's great grandmother at the girl's apartment complex before the vigil. She claims the boyfriend been physically abusive in the past and that the child's mother also shares the blame.

"He slapped them all the time. He whipped them all the time. But they made her lie and say that he didn't do it. She's just as much to blame as he is," said Ruth Williams. "Death is not good enough for either one of them."

Moments after our interview Williams fainted while being consoled by friends. Medics rushed to her aid and took her away.

Kristin Buick "Her smile. Her smile. She would always be like hi. And just a sweetheart an that's how I want her to be remembered not for what happened to her but I want people to remember how she was."

Besides the vigil at the park, people can go online to support baby Sophia. Vigil organizers set up a Facebook page and they've already got 500 followers.

The 3yo Known As Sophia Has Died
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Three-year-old Sophia, died Thursday morning at Children's Hospital Central California in Madera after suffering major head trauma on Saturday.

Exeter Police Chief, Cliff Bush said he was notified of Sophia's death Thursday morning -- and now the case is a homicide.

Police say Sophia suffered major head trauma, while inside an Exeter apartment on Saturday. Officers called her injuries, "suspicious" in nature and are investigating whether she was physically abused and possibly sexually assaulted as well. Police also say Sophia's mother and her boyfriend are "persons of interest" in the case, but no arrests have been made.

Sophia's great-grandmother claims the mother's boyfriend has been physically abusive in the past -- but she also holds Sophia's mother, responsible.

"He slapped them all the time. He whipped them all the time. But they made her lie and say that he didn't do it," said Sophia's great-grandmother Ruth Williams, "She's just as much to blame as he is. Death is not good enough for either one of them."

Wednesday night there was a vigil was held for Sophia at "Triangle Park" in Exeter. Organizers set up a Facebook page called "In Our Hearts, Baby Sophia," and as of late Thursday morning, it had over 1,700 followers.

Here are some of the emotional posts:

Maria wrote: "As I type this, tears are streaming down my face for this little girl."

Another person wrote: "Sophia we prayed all we could for you. We love you so much! We want justice!! This is so sad."

She is just sweetness & she was a petite lil one too. Gosh for me having a little girl was amazing to me. My daughter at Sophia's age was just pure joy (lately not so much, teen you know). This is heartbreaking and the picture doesn't show a happy 3 year old.

You know, I feel bad for the people who DID love this little girl and all, but obviously, some knew! The great grandmother at least did. Why was nothing done to remove the girl from them? Where were the ones who loved her when she really needed them?

I think great-granny DID call and stuff and she said they had the poor baby lie.

There are mornings I get on here and I HATE reading this shit. Then I realize that these kids deserve to be heard even if it is too late. Their murderers deserve to be scorned and shames in addition to what the court is going to do.

I get frustrated with my kid, sure, I grit my teeth and tell her I will spank her (very rarely do it), send her to her room. Then I go to mine.

I look at her and I see the world. I see me and her dad. I see the absolute love of my life. I would die for her. I would kill for her.

How can anyone see anything else??

I was reading through the FB comments, and apparently CPS was called, but did nothing. Of course, there is no way to prove this, just throwing it out there for the benefit of the doubt for the family.

Dammit. Dammit. Dammit. I get so sick of reading these stories sometimes, but I feel like I owe it to the little ones to at least acknowlege that they were here. What a beautiful little girl.

Someone needs to slap the mother and boyfriend into next week.

And CPS needs to go straight to hell. Do not pass go. Do not collect 200 dollars.

This happened in the town over from me, EVERYBODY is on the lookout for these douchebags! Not sure why the police haven't arrested them yet, but I hope my husband finds them first!

The incubator and penis told the police that she was choking on a piece of PB&J sandwich, apparently that causes massive head trauma and sexual assault! She was found by paramedics on the floor NAKED! Not sure how they are going to explain that part, probably say they tried to put her in the bath. I'm sitting here listening to my 20 month old daughter walk around saying "Mommy, mommy" because she's tired. I can only image sitting by while someone beats the crap out of her while she's crying out for mommy! That's exactly what the incubator did.

Her name was Sophia Acosta.

Officers first arrived at an Exeter apartment complex in the 800 block of West Visalia Road on Saturday afternoon. They found three people — Sophia's mother, Erica Smith, the mother's boyfriend, Christopher Cheary, and a neighbor, Karen Bibee — all trying to help the toddler, who lay naked and lifeless on the apartment floor.
. . .
Saturday's visit by police was the third time they'd been called to the home in regards to Sophia, Bush said. An incident report was taken once and two investigations remain active, he said. Officers had also been called out to the apartment two other times, for a domestic dispute and assault at the apartment, both unrelated to Sophia, police said.

Neighbors said they'd seen Tulare County Child Protective Services at the toddler's home several times in the last year, though that could not be verified by CPS as of Thursday. An 18-month-old girl was taken from the apartment by CPS after Saturday's incident, according to Bibee, the neighbor.

"She would always try to creep on me and be like, daddy, and try to chase me around. She was just always happy. She always had a smile on her face," Obediah Acosta, Sophia's father, said. . . .

Obediah says his ex-girlfriend, Erika, had full custody of their two daughters, Sophia, 3, and Alexa, 16 months.

He says he never had any reason to believe anything was wrong.

"The impression I was getting was yeah, they were fine. Nothing was wrong. Everything was going good. The boyfriend was a good guy. That's what I was getting," Acosta said.

He says even when he found out Alexa broke her leg, there seemed to be a simple excuse.

"I checked to see what happened, and they just said that she fell," he said.

But, he says, those excuses seemed like exactly that, excuses, last weekend, when Sophia was rushed to the hospital unconscious.

"The story that I was getting was that she was choking on her food, on peanut butter and jelly when she was asleep," Acosta said. . . .

"I wasn't in their lives a lot. It came down to this to happen. I just feel so bad," Acosta said.

I hope he's that stupid too! I will defiantly keep this one updated. We live in a small town and it's all over the news. I'm sure it will be breaking news when they arrest them.

I hope this is some indication of the sentence the douches will get! Same courthouse that will probably prosecute this case.

"Aeron Grenfell, 34, of Lindsay was sentenced Thursday to 138 years to life in state prison for 14 counts of molesting two girls under the age of 14, according to a news release from the Tulare County’s district attorney’s office.

Because some of Grenfell’s convictions are considered violent felonies, he will have to serve 85 percent of his prison term before being eligible for parole, the release stated.

The case was prosecuted by Melissa Chabra, deputy district attorney, and investigated by Detective Paul Gezzer of the Tulare County Sheriff’s Department as well as Brandon Hall, investigator for the District Attorney’s Bureau of Investigations."

In a normal situation? By twisting it when they fall. It happens more often than one would think. In THIS situaton...probably by getting the shit beat out of her by the adults who were suppose to be loving and caring for her.

Deaths Not Good Enough For Either Of Them

3-year-old Sophia Acosta was failed. She was failed by her mother, who should have protected her and didn’t. She was failed by her live-in baby sitter, who should have protected her and didn’t. She was failed by CPS, who was reportedly called and did nothing. So much failure, as we all know so well, equals death.

Sophia was taken to Hospital Central California in Madera after suffering major head trauma in the apartment she shared with her mother, her mother’s boyfriend, a younger sibling and her baby sitter on Saturday. Her injuries got the best of her… She died last night after being removed from life support. Police are calling the injuries “suspiciousâ€￾ (YA THINK??) and there are reports that little Sophia may have also been sexually abused. Her mother and the swinging piece of meat that occupied the vast space between her thighs are “people of interestâ€￾, but have yet to be arrested.

Family members are speaking out. Sophia’s great-grandmother, Ruth Williams, claims that the swinging piece of meat was physically abusive, but she holds the gestations device responsible as well (GG has her wits about her, I see).

“He slapped them all the time. He whipped them all the time. But they made her lie and say that he didn’t do it,â€￾ Williams told reporters, “She’s just as much to blame as he is. Death is not good enough for either one of them.â€￾

Sophia’s 1 ½ year old sister has been placed in CPS custody. I hope that the monsters responsible for the murder of this beautiful little angel get what’s coming to them… and fast.

Exeter Boyfriend Speaks Out About Child's Death

"I would never touch that little girl. I love her more than I love myself," Chris Cheary told us.

The man who's faced accusations he killed a three-year-old Exeter girl speaks exclusively to CBS47.

20-year-old Chris Cheary says he discovered Sophia Acosta unconscious nearly ten days ago in the apartment he shared with his girlfriend, Erica Smith, and her children - including Sophia and her sister.

Exeter Police have said that Cheary and Sophia's mother are persons of interest in the case.

We met Cheary at a park in Tulare County. He fears for his safety and doesn't want people to know where he is staying. He wanted to tell his side of the story - about what happened the day Sophia was found critically injured.

"We were downstairs smoking heroin. And I had smoked some pot. And that's all we were really doing. And the girls were upstairs sleeping," Chris Cheary told us during an interview.

Cheary said he and his girlfriend, Erica Smith, were doing drugs in the apartment they shared the afternoon of Saturday, May 7th. He believed three-year-old Sophia Acosta was asleep in her bed. Chris said he heard a sound and went to check on the little girl.

"I found her on the ground next to the bed. And she had vomit and she was knocked out like she was unconscious with her eyes open," Cheary said.

He says he cleaned Sophia up in the tub, splashed her with cold water, while the child's mother ran for help.

Cheary says there was a miniature metal shopping cart next to Sophia's bed. He believes Sophia hit her head on the cart.

"That was exactly at the head of the bed, on the floor where her head was. And she was still wrapped in the blanket and so it seemed like she had rolled off or fell somehow," Cheary said.

After days in the hospital, Sophia died at Children's Hospital in Madera late Wednesday night. An autopsy showed she died from blunt force trauma to the head. Exeter Police have questioned Chris and Sophia's mother, Erica Smith, Chris's girlfriend. Erica's family blames Chris for the child's death,

Sophia's great-grandmother Ruth Williams said at a vigil last week "As God is my witness, it's him. I know it in my heart."

Exeter police said they didn't know if Sophia was molested. But said they discovered suspicious injuries that required more testing.

I asked Chris if he had anything to do with Sophia's death:

Kathryn: "Did you kill Sophia?

Cheary: "No"

Kathryn: "Did you beat her?"

Cheary: "I've never laid hands on her to harm her."

Kathryn: "Did you molest Sophia?"

Cheary: "No, I would never touch Sophia. I loved her more than anything."

To those who believe he killed Sophia:

"I would honestly give my life for that little girl to be alive. I would gladly switch places with Sophia in a heartbeat," Cheary said.

Cheary admits he's been a heroin addict for the last six years. He says he checked himself into rehab last week but was kicked out because of the police investigation into Sophia's death.

We contacted Exeter police for an update on the case, but we were unable to reach anyone this evening.

Your dream or your nightmare. You decide.
He deserves the most and vicious death that anyone can think of.

Use instruments to finish him off, I don't care I have no ill feelings by wishing this. These two heinous twats have lost all humanity, all feelings. I can't even stand to know that they may live out the rest of their putrid lives in prison. Even if the existence is bleak, they get to live while Sophia rots 6 feet under. I hope a mob finds them, an angry burly mob.

Sophia reminds me so much like a little girl I knew a long time ago.
That child went on to recover and lead a pretty good life...I know her well today.

Sophia was a light amongst a dark backdrop of abuse. People capable of such a thing to a child are not worthy of life.
Their time will come and I do hope they will pay dearly for stealing her life away.

You were a ray of sunshine littlest Sophia....the world is a darker place without you.

Apparently, these two are hiding out in a church. The police know where they are, they are waiting until they get enough evidence to make an arrest. I personally want them to do a thorough job, I don't want these two killers to get off on a technicality.
