Rosie Tapia abducted and murdered on 8/13/95

Rosie was just 6 years old  that August night in 1995 when she was ripped from her home,raped and murdered by being thrown into the Jordan river in Salt Lake City,UT. Who took her from her bed? That question still has not been answered. Her mom found the window screen out and the blind on the floor that morning. A prisoner sent a letter to a guard about another inmate who told him what happened. This is the letter as printed on a news channel's website:  "The dude told me he was there. She wasn't the right girl he took the wrong girl. The other guy says, ‘We'll take her back.’ The dude says, ‘No we got to get rid of her.’ So they do some f- up s- to this little girl. Throw her in the water and wash away the evidence. There's a lot more to the story”  This letter was written last year and so far nothing has come of it. Rosie and her family deserve justice.  /


  1. My father was the one who found her body in the river with my dog Shadow. My sister and I went to school with her. I was 8 or 9 and my sister was about her age as they were in the same grade. My father never got over seeing this little girl who he thought was a doll. I remember this vividly even now. I still pray her family finds piece.

    1. TY for you comment. I am so sorry you dad has had to deal with such a terrible thing.

    2. Wow, I was coming in to say my next door neighbor found this little girl’s body. I also remember A’s father telling my mum about it & it was clear how shaken he was. I didn’t go to the same school, but this happened right before my birthday. It was such a sad case. I periodically look in hopes of seeing that an arrest was made. I continue to hope her parents will one day have answers. It won’t bring Rosie back, but at least I hope they’re able to see her killer brought to justice.

White House Boys child abuse case

At the Florida Industrial School For Boys in Marinna,FL atrocities took place from at least the 1940's through the 1960's which until recently were kept hidden inside the victims.  One victim started a website and support system  for these boys now men who were beaten beyond my comprehension. Thanks to this brave man Roger Dean Kiser author of The White House Boys: An American Tragedy I am able to tell you their story. Thank you Mr.Kiser and all the brave White House Boys for allowing this blog to be written.
                Many of these boys were not sent to the reform school for any crime,they simply weren't wanted or were orphans. They were taken to a building at the school behind the mess hall called the White House  and were told to lay on a filthy mattress on a bed frame with springs. They then had to hold onto the metal bed frame and bite the nasty pillow while they were beat with a leather strap that had a metal strip inside for reinforcement. The wounds were horre…
