Reported abducted toddler, Tyler Dasher was found dead yesterday afternoon near River Des Peres by a couple walking their dogs. The 1 year-old’s body was discovered about a mile from the home he lived in with his mother and grandmother.
Sadly, this happened on our watch…in Saint Louis…in Affton, Missouri. This hits extremely close to home, and sadly, this mirrors another unsolved “abduction” in Missouri, missing 1 year-old Lisa Irwin. The question is, what in the world is going on???
Fox 2 KTVI has confirmed that a suspect is in custody. The suspect is Tyler’s mother, Shelby Ann Dasher.
It must be stressed, the cause of death is unknown, at this point, nor is there a clear motive in the Dasher case. Yet, at the same time, this is one of those situations where we need to take a step back from the daily grind, look at our children and hold them tight, then look to our family and friends who may be struggling, and as dutiful Christians, lend them a hand…because that is what God has called us to do.
Perhaps, in a society that that pushed God away more and more by the minute, if we actually looked toward Him more, there would be less evil in the world.
Godspeed, Tyler Dasher. Rest in Peace.
