A celebration of life service has been scheduled for three-year-old Kardie Rose Weathersby, who died on October 15 after being dropped off two days earlier at an Indiana emergency room by a man who did not identify himself. Her death was ruled a homicide caused by blunt force trauma to the head.
Kardie’s family and friends will pay tribute to their little princess on Tuesday, October 27, 2020 at 11:00 AM at the Gospel Tabernacle Missionary Baptist Church in Covert, Michigan.
The family could use some help paying funeral expenses; if you are able and willing to donate, their GoFundMe campaign can be found here.
Kardie’s updated obituary reads, “Kardie enjoyed dancing, singing and going to the park. She also didn’t mind taking pictures (very photogenic), calling family members on the phone and watching cartoons. Most of all, she loved spending time with her mom Vanina.”
This sweet little girl leaves behind her mother, biological and honorary grandparents, great grandparents, aunts, uncles, and godparents, and many more who will miss her deeply.
As for the criminal case, there have been no arrests. Her biological father, who has not been officially named a suspect in her murder, was scheduled to be arraigned in Kent County Court on unrelated charges this afternoon, but I tuned in to Judge Sullivan’s YouTube livestream at the scheduled time only to see an entirely different case. I’ll provide an update once I find out if “Peanut’s” Michigan hearing has been rescheduled.
As I mentioned in my original blog post about Kardie, I’m not naming her father until Indiana law enforcement does. The St. Joseph County Metro Homicide Unit is striving to file charges as quickly as possible.
