Angelic Dakota Burke

Instead of writing this post about the paranormal, I wanted to write about a very special and beautiful little angel that has now bestowed Heaven with her radiant light. With her big, bright blue eyes and joyous smile, Dakota Burke will forever shine in the hearts of everyone.

As I write this, I can’t help but hold back the tears. Even though I never met this darling, her story tugs deeply at my heart. Dakota Burke, a playful twenty month old precious toddler, was brought to the hospital on New Year’s Eve. She was badly beaten with severe burn marks all over her body. Sadly, she succumbed to her traumatic injuries. She died just days later on January 8, 2015.

What kind of monsters could have done such a horrible thing to such an adorable sweetheart? Her own mother along with the mother’s husband, both who have been charged for the abuse and death of Dakota Burke. My stomach turns with disgust towards these two “so-called” individuals. I’m an extremely proud mother of two wonderful sons and to think of another mother taking the life of her own child goes way beyond my comprehension. When I see this story on t.v., I grit my teeth in anger and wonder why?

All the pictures I’ve seen of sweet, Dakota Burke have been ones of a little girl who was full of laughter and smiles. She appeared to be such a beacon of light, a true blessing to the world. For the remainder of the month people are turning their porch lights on every night at 6 pm in her memory. For more information and stories about this little angel, please visit the Facebook page that’s been dedicated in her honor.

  1. As a public figure I admire you undertaking getting this to more views. People (can’t be called parent) like this are the most selfish, undeserving of nurturing one of GOD’s little angels on earth. My heart goes out as we see more and more of such events happening in our world.😢

  2. We are charged in our children’s lives to protect, teach and love and all those other responsibilities. How she was abused and dies…is heartbreaking.
    If she was such a burden she should have given her up for adoption so she could be loved. R.I.P. DaKota.

  4. There are too many evil happen in this world and it exist in all kinds of forms and acts imaginable. There are few I can name of the many cases of abused children, but let us leave that aside because it is too terrible even to mentioned.

    I had just lost a 21/2 years old daughter the last year in March and she was murdered by our own doctor who left her without the proper check-up that did not even last longer than 5 minutes. Let alone that antibiotics could have save her life at that time, but she was murdered without him laying hands on her ….

    I hope that no more children died or suffered in the wrong hands of both abusers or ignorant people who does not do their job well … 😦
