One thing that I don’t think I ever posted about the Zahra Baker story was that last year investigators found a skull that they believed belonged to murdered 10-year-old Zahra Baker. I never posted this in case the skull turned out not to be hers. Today it was announced that the skull was in fact Zahra’s.
For those of you who may not remember Zahra was reported missing from her home in Hickory, North Carolina with her father Adam Baker and her wicked stepmother Elisa Baker. As it turned out, she was murdered and dismembered by Elisa Baker. Baker pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and was sentenced to only 14-18 years. Zahra was a cancer survivor who had also lost her hearing and one of her legs who by all reports loved everyone around her. She most certainly did not deserve the fate that befell upon her.
Unfortunately, with the skull being identified as Zahra’s forensics could not determine exactly how she was killed.
I can only hope that with this it can help bring some kind of closure and peace to the people who truly loved her.
