Three weeks after the body of baby Kaylee Burgess, 2, was found dumped in a bucket at the home of her grandmother in the Japan area of Ladyville, despite strong evidence that she had been murdered, says her parents, no one has yet been arrested.
Disgusted with the foot-dragging pace with which the police are investigating the case, the mothers of Ladyville will stage a protest march on Saturday in Ladyville which, it is hoped, will encourage the police to give the case the priority it deserves, and arrest the baby’s murderer.
The protest march will commence at 3:00 p.m. from the toddler’s dad’s home at the Quilter Estate and it will go through the streets of the Japan Area and conclude at the football field, where a candlelight vigil will occur.
Both of Kaylee’s parents, Kevin Burgess and Deidra Pratt, have made public appearances on the television denouncing the way in which the case is being handled.
Pratt says that she feels that a cover-up is happening on the part of some members of her family and the police. She said that the baby’s murderer should have been arrested a long time ago.
