A Grave Memorial
Kyleigh Mae McDaniel
Robinson was a
cheerful child who was always smiling and happy. Kyleigh brought so
much joy to her family and those who loved her. What could
have caused someone to harm her in a way that would kill her?
tell you how much I long for the
day when I WON'T
have to read ONE more story about a boyfriend or
girl- friend or
or stepfather who has killed a child.
Stolte would call Kyleigh's mother three times on the night of her
death. He would call McKenzie to tell her that one
of Kyleigh's eyes looked droopy, then to say that she would not go to
sleep, the third call was to tell her that
Kyleigh was not breathing and he had called 911. Kyleigh was taken to
the hospital where she was pronounced dead. McKenzie
had only been dating
about three months the night he killed Kyleigh. Police say that he had
been drinking, which at first he denied. According to the police,
Alexander tried to say that Kyleigh had fallen
and THAT is what caused the
injuries that had killed her that night. How many times do we have to
like this before people wise up and stop leaving their children with
abusive people? Kyleigh died of blunt trauma to her head.
Alexander had been Merrimack Valley High Schools star goal tender in
the sport of Lacrosse. That was two years before he would fatally
injure a helpless one year old Angel. Friends of Alexander say he had a
tough childhood, bouncing around from foster homes to homes of friends
and at times living on the street. Alexander dropped out of High School
before he would have graduated. The mother of his best friend said"
"In my wildest dreams,
I would never think is capable of doing something like this.
if he was drunk, on drugs, he would never hurt a child. He has a little
bit of a
streak, he is a good kid"
Who is this woman trying to kid? NO ONE can predict or even come CLOSE to saying what a person who is
drunk or high on drugs would do. Children do not get the
kind of injuries this child got and then die from them, just by falling
on a stroller. This has
been proven time and time again when OTHERS
in the past have
tried to say they didn't kill a child when obviously they did. How many
children have to die this way before people realize that they will
not be able to cover up what they have done by saying a child "bumped
his or her head" or
"fell"? You can't fool those who are in the medical profession and have
been trained to spot
inaccuracies in the stories that
they hear when people are killed and someone lies about how it happens.
A medical exam showed that Kyleigh suffered multiple skull fractures,
bleeding inside her skull and a spiral
fracture to her right leg. Policed reported that three of
Kyleigh's ribs had been broken at an earlier date and were
in the process of healing. Kyleigh's death was ruled as a homicide:
on the severity of her injuries, death would have occurred fairly
quickly. Stolte had sole
custody of the child
during the hours when the injuries would have
Alexander was to wait in prison in Vermont
waited for his trial, he was denied bail. The attorney for Alexander,
Daniel Sedon, said the evidence against his was
not sufficient enough to keep in prison and deny him bail. Thankfully,
Judge Thomas Devine
didn't agree, saying:
circumstantial, but it is substantial nevertheless"
Bail was denied
the judge who believed
that Alexander was at the very least a moderate flight risk due in part
to his only being 19 years old.
Alexander had told police that Kyleigh was playing and had been active
for most of the night. The Vermont Chief Medical Examiner, Steven
Shapiro, said that with the
severity of Kyleigh's head injury, she would have been incapacitated
directly after the fall that
Alexander says she took. He had this to say in a written statement:
Kyleigh's activity level that night is completely at odds with medical
There is strong evidence that (Stolte) was the only possibly source
of the injuries"

Today is June 15, 2014
and while searching for updates on Kyleigh's case, I found the
In June of 2012, Alexander Stolte plead guilty to manslaughter and
aggravate assault. In August of 2012, who was 21 years old at the time,
was sentenced to 15 to 30 in prison for what had done to Kyleigh. In
court, victims impact statements were given and Alexander was called a
liar and a monster and told by Kyleigh's grandmother that she would
make it her mission in life to never let him escape his crime:
"The justice today that
he faces is nothing compared to what we want. What a I personally
would want is for him
to be in prison for the rest of his life, without parole, in the worst
You're a monster and not worthy to breathe air that we breathe. I will
your shadow, I will be
there at every parole hearing. I will be there if you are released and
will do everything
legally possible to make sure that everybody know who you are and what
you have done. I curse
you Alex. Alexander David Stolte, I cure to live through Kyleigh Mae
McDaniel's pain, day in
and day out. Daymares, nightmares. Every day of your life, I want
you to feel that pain.
Though he showed very little emotion during the time she was speaking,
Alex did look at Janine a few times while she was speaking.
Alexander spoke in court saying:
"I am a horrible person
to have taken a child away from her family. I realized
the immense pain that I have cause, not only to the families involved,
the community and myself. I have taken a child's life away from her
I hope, at some point in your life, you will forgive me for my action."
"Now, as you face a lengthy incarceration, you tell us how sorry
you are about
what happened. But this is not the time to be sorry. The time for that
you hurt Kyleigh the first time, or when you got drunk and hurt her
then you weren't sorry, instead, you slammed her to the floor, killing
difficult to imagine a crime which involves a greater breach of trust
which resulted din Kyleigh's death. She was a little girl, entrusted to
you by her
mother, whom you claim to have loved and who believed you would look
Kyleigh and keep her safe. Instead, you got drunk, hurt her when you
too rough with her and then fatally injured her when she cried. In a
I could impose a sentence which would give Kyleigh back the life that
from her. She will not get to experience going to school, playing with
learning to drive, going on a date, getting married, having children or
any of the
other things that life offers. She has lost those things forever and no
give them back to her"
Judge Harold Eaton
Eaton added that being in prison would give Alexander time to
rehabilitate himself and that this was the best that could be done.
Alexander's mother was in court and though she had been saying he was
innocent before, she was now saying that she agreed with the sentence
"For 2 1/2 years we
have always said "Justice for Kyleigh first" and for 2 1/2 years we did
know what this justice
was. We were led down a path clouded by smoke and paved with mirrors.
We are very thankful
that Alexander told us all the truth back in June. Now justice has been
for Kyleigh and
tomorrow we move on"
