Community Rallies Behind Family of 2- Year-Old Killed

Posted: Updated:

(Buffalo, Mo.) Family, friends, and even those who didn't know 2-year-old Kinzlea Kilgore were pitching for justice this morning.

About two dozen people gathered at the Dallas County courthouse and marched around the building.

Dozens of family and community members gathered in front of the courthouse demanding justice for two-year-old Kinzlea who was killed two months ago.

"Somebody murdered my 2-year-old niece and nothing has been done," explains Toni Robertson, Kinzlea Kilgore's Great Aunt. 

Pictures and memories. It’s all Robertson has left of her great niece, Kinzlea.

"Kinzlea was the smartest, brightest, most loving two year old you could ever meet, she did not every meet a stranger."

And 60 days after the baby's death, one question lingers more than any other.

"The investigation should be complete. We’re waiting on Barbara Veits to pick it up and do something."

Authorities say they are investigating the case as a homicide after an autopsy shows Kinzlea died under suspicious circumstances.

"I just couldn’t believe it. I'm still a little bit shocked, but I’m angry that somebody could do this to a two year old or any child."

However no one has been charged. But police say they do have a person of interest in the case and the family is tirelessly waiting for criminal charges to be filed.

"I believe Kenneth Davis is involved somehow, he was there."

That's why protesters like Shelly Arthur along with family say they are standing up for Kinzlea and are calling on prosecuting attorney Viets’ to take action.

"As a family your support system is everything. For this family to know this many people supporting them in the wrongness of whats going on, it helps, does it make it better? No. It's time for Kenneth Davis to be held accountable for murdering that baby," explains Arthur. 

The Dallas County Prosecuting Attorney says the evidence is still being reviewed and no decision has been made on any potential charges. We will keep you updated as we learn more information.
