Alyssa Kay Loque
November 30, 2004 - October 26, 2006
Find A Grave Memorial

Those who knew and loved Alyssa, knew that she loved her mommy, her brother along with Dora, Winnie The Pooh and Disney Princesses, most of all, she was mommy's little Angel. Sadly, Alyssa would never get to meet her little sister who was born after her death. Alyssa would die at the hands of a man her mother trusted to take care of her.

Christy Lynn Armstrong adored her children, loved them with her life. On October 24, 2006, Christy headed off to work and left her children in the care of someone she thought she could trust, Paul Cotter. Upon returning home from work, Christy went to wake Alyssa up from a nap. Sadly, Alyssa would not respond to her mother and was taken to the hospital where she was placed on life support.

Test were done and it was shown that Alyssa had blood on her brain that was both old and new, this would show that Alyssa had been injured before October 24 as well as on that day. Alyssa's brain showed a midline brain shift and hemorrhaging behind her retinas and Christy was told that if she were to survive, Alyssa would be brain dead or in a vegetative state.

Prayers began immediately for Alyssa to receive a miracle and survive this vicious attack. After three days in the hospital on life support, Alyssa died. Alyssa was never going to make it to Kindergarten, she was never going to graduate High School, go on a first date, get married or have children of her own. Alyssa was robbed of her life by a man who couldn't hold his temper long enough to save the life of a little Angel.

In February of 2008 Paul Cotter, who was 27 years old, plead guilty to involuntary manslaughter in the death of Alyssa. Judge Neal Bronson sentenced Paul to a meager ten year sentenced in prison with five years of post-release control:

"This offender will serve his debt to society for this senseless act
against an innocent child"
Prosecutor Rachel Hutzel

I wish I could agree with Rachel Hutzel. This man will serve his time, maybe get time off for good behavior, time off for time served while waiting for trial and he'll be out in no time. Alyssa gets no time off for anything. I can only say that I am happy and full of joy that she has seen the face of Jesus and knows a love greater than any other.

Sadly, Christy Lynn Armsstrong died on October 12, 2012. She is now in Heaven with Alyssa, though she has left behind her other children.I am unable to find an obituary for Christy.
