A Very Heavy Heart


A fellow blogger,
Walking on Sunshine,
alerted me to this tragic story,
when she read my earlier post today.

I could not turn my heart away
and have been called to share it with
all of you.

Things like this just should NOT happen.

I read Blondee's post
and my heart really was broken.

Here it is:
Please read.
And if you feel moved, please repost.

Thank you...

Child Killer and Enough

There is no relationship that lasts longer in this world than the relationship of siblings. God's gift of best friends to us in life. MeetLauren Belius and her twin sister Erica. Beautiful baby girls, aren't they?
The girls were inseparable, Lauren being the brave 'older' sister, and Erica being the shy little sister.
Older brother Nolan didn't just have to share the spotlight with one cute little sister, but two! These three joined our Taekwondo studio last spring. Busy little kids that we all got a kick out of watching as they learned their counters, kicks and kata's.
Lauren and Erica- blessings beyond words, beautiful memories made of first birthdays, milestones, holiday mornings and their sweet personalities.
Until one horrific morning in July of 2011.
David Trebilcock stabbed Lauren to death in her own bed as her twin sat inches from her in the very same bed, horrified and screaming for help. David had been plotting her murder, going as far as to lock the family dog in the garage and barricade the bedroom door with a dresser before approaching these amazing girls, naked- to fulfill his plan of killing a child.
By God's grace, Lauren and Erica's mom was able to break into the room and attacked David, incapacitating him so she could get her girls out of his evil clutches. Lauren succumbed to her injuries, tragically the little girl with the big grin left her family that day and went to Heaven where she would feel no pain, have no fear, and never be harmed again.
Now a little sister who was shy and dependent on her older, brave sister would be left to navigate the world alone. Her twin, her other half, torn from her right in front of her, torn from us all.
David Trebilcock admitted to murdering Lauren Belius. He did not take the stand in his own defense, instead pleaded not guilty by defense of insanity. He then requested a bench trial instead of a jury of his peers and last week was found NOT GUILTY of killing Lauren.
Our community has been devastated by the murder of this sweet girl, a family broken forever, and a mom has been left to look over her shoulder the rest of her life for a man who made statements that make us all concerned that her other children may be in grave danger when he is released. This man had the foresight to lock a family dog away from the girls it would have fought to protect. He shoved a dresser in front of a door that would have allowed these girls to escape. This man is not an insane man, he's a cold, calculating murderer who just worked our system and has been freed of all charges by Judge Dwyer of Oneida County.
Our laws need to be changed!
There should be NO plea of insanity if you murder a child, and there certainly should be no bench trial demanded by the murderer!
David Trebilcock can be out in the world amongst you and me in 12 months!! A man who admitted he had intercourse with a 12 year old child. A man who admitted to having drug problems in the past. A man who hid his past from others and left other states when he knew he was in trouble. The very same man who murdered Lauren in cold blood.
Allison, Lauren's Mom is asking for help in spreading the word of this injustice. PLEASE, I am asking all of my readers to help me spread the word! Repost this on your own blog. Make every community aware of what our laws really do. Help us gain national exposure to get the ball rolling and make it so David Trebilcock and other child killers can not get away with this!
Please do not just link to this blog...too many readers ignore links. Please cut and paste! Right click to copy the photos.

I thank you for your help.
Lauren's Mommy thanks you for your help!

For my bloggy friends~ If you repost, please leave a comment for me so that I know you did so and I will plug your blog with one of your own original posts later this week. Thank you!

NOT GUILTY?!!!! (shrieking) NOT GUILTY????????????????? We really can no longer trust our judicial community to protect the innocent. Cops turning bad, judges beating their children on video, governors pardoning murderers in some states... and now this?!

I am SO sorry for the mom and little girl. So so so traumatic, and I hope that they're firmly on the healing path to God.

i read a news story and learned the judge is a father of twins, which is an interesting connection with the parents. and this crazy guy thought he was a messenger from god. what kind of sick society produces a guy like this? but more than anything, what a tragic story. nothing will bring lauren back. a year removed from society certainly does sound like too short a time. i happen to think we shouldn't be incarcerating nearly as many people in this country as we do, but that's becuz we put away so many non-violent offenders. violent people are exactly the sort of people we ought to be removing from society. to kill a helpless child is as serious a violent crime as there is. i can only imagine the chances of a relapse would be such that a year's worth of therapy and monitoring would not be enough. thanks for sharing. absolutely tragic. it may be a small point, but the news story said he was not found not guilty.

That is the most horrific scenario possible. My heart goes out to the family of this awful tragedy.

Sonya @ Under the Desert Sky said...

I feel physically sick reading about this horrible, monstrous act. I will pray for the mom and the surviving sister and brother. Tragic.

Paula said...

Just makes me sick. This man is the devil himself.

I've seen this story and am stunned to disbelief on this!! My heart and prayers go out to this family who have endured an unimaginable tragedy and heartbreak. I so hope they continue to be safe from this 'animal' and find peace in their hearts and lives....

While reading this, I felt sick to my stomach. I can not imagine anyone letting this man go free. He is not insane, he is pure black-hearted evil.
My heart goes out to Mom and her sister and brother.

This is soooo horrific and sad.

Donna said...

This is horrifying!! This happens way too often. This is one judge Rush Limbaugh, if he's been made aware of the injustice, will publicly hold accountable.

We all need to re post this!!
U-N-B-E-L-I-E-V-A-B-L-E!!! I will re post this in the morning, Jill. In what state did this happen?

I will also pray for this family. I can not even imagine what they must be going through. Has anyone started a letter writing campaign to get rid of this judge?? If you hear more, Jill, would you pass it on to us? My heart is just broken for these people . . .

Its so very hard to understand how sick this Judge is to let another human being walk out of this let alone try to understand the WHYs of all of this. I dont know what to say but I do know how I feel. Outraged and sick with no real words to express . Our world we live in is sick and getting worse.

Dawn's Craft Place said...

Such a sad ,sad story...sending prayers up for this family.
These stories tear my heart out and one of the reasons I rarely watch the news.
I choose to send letters to the judge and his support staff-I am sure this judge was voted in and really needs to be VOTED out

Tammy said...

Not Guilty? How is that even possible...I mean, the mother and sister were witnesses!

Emily @SweetlyScrapped said...

I live in NY and this is horrible. We just had a local (approx 25 mins away) father here kill his 15 month old son. I have placed a widget on my blog for the petition that I have found. I have placed the embedded code on my blog here it's towards the bottom a little too much, so I am going rearrange and move it up tomorrow. I just wanted to get it on at least for tonight. This is just so sad. I can't believe this. I am a mother of two small ones AND I live in NY.

ღ Life According To Milo ღ said...

That is so tragic and definitely heartbreaking. To have the family suffer that, and then to have the person responsible let go after a short year to possibly do this again is reprehensible. : (.. I work with clients who have been found not guilty by reason of disease or defect, but usually in the end, they spend a lot more than a year for lesser crimes in the system. That's just stupid to only give the killer that short of a treatment.

This is so shocking!!!! Not guilty? What is he.An animal?
