Mother of Zahra Baker speaks out

November 5, 2010 - 7:24PM

~Snipped~

Ms Dietrich had postnatal depression after Zahra was born and Adam Baker was given custody, but she said she had been fighting for her share of custody of Zahra for nine years.

She had used the internet to track down her daughter in the US three days before she went missing.

If her above statement is true, that she tracked Zahra down through the internet, were Adam and Elisa aware of this? Had she made contact with one of them? I would imagine she would have found Adam or Elisa on the internet, not Zahra. Or she could have found the article about Zahra receiving her hearing aid, I suppose.

If her mom had contacted them, it could have possibly fueled the fire that led to Zahra's murder and so called disappearance. Just a thought.

Video of biomum and Valhall's theory found here

Since Adam Baker gave the Australian government a former last name for Emily when applying for Zahra’s passport, thereby causing the Australian bureaucracy to fail to locate “Emily Dietrich”, and resulting in the issuance of the passport without Emily’s approval based on not being able to locate her, when Emily found Zahra it may have been the impetus for the Bakers to report Zahra missing. After all, if Emily began to push her rights to see Zahra, and proved Zahra had been taken out of the country without her consent, it would have been fairly hard to produce the child if she was no longer alive. Just a theory, but one that should be considered. It really depends on what date Zahra died, and no one seems to know that right now since Elisa Baker and Adam Baker are not cooperating.

Assuming the bio-mom tracked Zahra down through the internet by making contact with Adam or Elisa, if Zahra was already deceased, the contact made by bio-mom may have been just the thing to activate "uh-oh, she found us, she wants contact with Zahra, she's already deceased, we can't produce a living, breathing daughter, (light bulb over heads goes on, plan is born and put into action 3 days later), uhm, Zahra is missing, here's a kidnap note!"

This reminds me of Casey, when confronted by someone wanting contact with a living, breathing child, the typical response is "uhm.....daughter is kidnapped".

That's an excellent theory. They moved to the new house, Zahra murdered, no one asking questions about Zahra or where she is. Then out of the blue her mother is on their trail. Sickening, just sickening.

Sherry, thanks for the link to Val's theory. Here's the youtube video from Val's post.

It seems Adam Baker is also a con artist and kidnapper.
It appears he took Zahra out of the country illegally.

This is an article from back in May where Zahra and her step-mom spoke about the free hearing aids that Zahra received in a giveaway at the Charlotte Motor Speedway. They both spoke in the video at the link.

Groups donate hearing aids to 81 people

By: Jennifer Moxley
05/10/2010 06:56 PM



CONCORD, N.C. – A 10-year-old girl who battled and beat cancer received a new gift to help her recovery.

Zahra Baker was one of 81 people who received free hearing aids to improve their quality of life Monday at the Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Baker has a hint of an Australian accent and a faint speech impediment from her hearing loss, a result of her fight with cancer. She also lost her leg, but she didn't lose her will.

A Look Inside Zahra’s Home

Updated: 5:48 pm EDT November 5, 2010

HICKORY, N.C. -- For the first time, Eyewitness News went inside of Zahra Baker’s Hickory home.

SLIDESHOW: A Look Inside Zahra's Home

VIDEO: A Look Inside Zahra's Home

There are holes in walls, ceilings and floors after an extensive, multiple-day search done by investigators. There is a large hole in the floor of Zahra’s bedroom, which is painted bright pink, and part of the drywall has been ripped away, exposing wooden beams.

The kitchen, living room and bathroom have similar damage. Some furniture, decorative items and household items remain in the home, located on 21st Avenue NW.

Investigators spent several days last week searching the inside of the house, as well as the yard. They said only that they were looking for evidence related to Zahra’s disappearance, but did not say specifically what that evidence was.

A large team of searchers spent Friday searching the area around Christie Road in Caldwell County. They confirmed that they found "additional evidence" during Friday's search but have not said what that evidence is. Shortly before the search ended for the day, investigators gathered and appeared to pray.

J4A, thanks for all of the videos. Zahra lived everyday in a house of horrors. It's even more terrifying seeing what they removed - sinks, pipes, parts of walls, floors, ceilings...
I can't imagine the torture this precious child suffered.
I wonder what they found when they circled and prayed. Sad

Elisa Baker’s Cousin: We Don’t Know The Truth, Either

Updated: 5:37 pm EST November 8, 2010

CATAWBA COUNTY, N.C. -- A family member of Elisa Baker, Zahra Baker’s stepmother, visited her in jail on Monday.

VIDEO: Elisa Baker’s Cousin: We Don’t Know The Truth, Either

The woman, who did not want to give her name, is Elisa’s first cousin. She is one of the few people outside of attorneys who have spoken with Elisa inside the jail.

“I'm not going to comment about that,” the woman said when asked if she thought Elisa should be in jail.

She added, “I don't think she is the only one who should be in jail.”

“She's not doing well at all,” the visiting cousin said. “She's trying to find the truth.”


I will not feel sorry for Elisa Baker. Elisa knows the truth. Everyone around them knew how she treated Zahra. They've found her prosthetic leg that was probably thrown out of a car window, now a bone. She admitted she wrote the fake ransom note. I don't know why anyone would go visit her, let alone claim they are related to her. No surprise the cousin didn't want to be identified.

Divers Search Creek For Evidence In Zahra Case

Updated: 1:16 pm EST November 10, 2010

CALDWELL COUNTY, N.C. -- Investigators are in the Dudley Shoals community of Caldwell County, continuing a month-long search for evidence in the disappearance of 10-year-old Zahra Baker.

• VIDEO: Divers Search Creek For Evidence In Zahra's Disappearance
http://www.wsoctv.com/video/25745968/index.html

Searchers are focusing on a half-mile stretch of Gunpowder Creek, with divers looking in the water and investigators combing through the banks.

Police have searched the area before, accompanied by Zahra’s stepmother, Elisa Baker. She has been in jail over the course of the investigation, charged with felony obstruction of justice after police said she admitted to writing a phony ransom note the day Zahra was reported missing.

Zahra’s Biological Mother Coming To NC From Australia

Posted: 8:58 am EST November 11, 2010
Updated: 9:01 am EST November 11, 2010

HICKORY, N.C. -- Zahra Baker’s biological mother, Emily Dietrich, is coming to North Carolina from Australia, Channel 9 has learned.

She could arrive sometime Thursday.

Last week, Dietrich told Australia's Seven Network that she has little hope of seeing Zahra alive again.

Dietrich has not had contact with her daughter since Zahra was an infant.

"I don't feel it," she said. "I reckon that mothers just have this bond with their children."

Investigators digging for clues in search for Zahra

By The Record Staff
Published: November 11, 2010

DUDLEY SHOALS --
Investigators looking for the remains of Zahra Baker dug a hole at the Dudley Shoals search site Wednesday afternoon and marked the site with an evidence flag.

All of the dirt from the circular hole – which measures about 10 feet around and 2.5 feet deep – was removed from the site. A white evidence flag – like ones used previously to mark bone identification – was placed next to the hole.

The hole is about 10 feet from the riverbank and about 25 feet from where the paved road ends.

email & WBTV Staff

HICKORY, NC (WBTV) - New evidence that officials say are "possible human remains" has been found in the search for a missing 10-year-old Hickory girl, as WBTV learns that Zahra's biological mother arrives in the United States.

Investigators told WBTV on Thursday that search teams in Caldwell County found evidence on Wednesday that "could provide valuable information in the Zahra Baker case." The evidence, which are "possible human remains," is on its way to and will be analyzed by the NC State Bureau of Investigation's lab.

Mama, thanks for the link. Where is Adam Baker staying, do you know? I'm surprised he's able to walk the streets without being attacked.

~Snipped~
After the evidence was found, the search took on a serious tone with a limited fly zone set up -- meaning news helicopters were not allowed to travel lower than 3000 feet in the area.

Search crews centered their efforts around Gunpowder Creek. They went into the creek with dry suits, and also searched the banks, at times hacking the brush with machetes.

According to WBTV reporter Steve Ohnesorge, police seemed more intense as the search went on. Security in the area was very tight.

Ohnesorge said that every officer he tried to talk to seemed "frantic" and they all told him "I can't say anything."


I have to give credit to LE and the search crews for their diligence in finding Zahra. They haven't stopped.

Human remains found in search for Zahra By staff writers

From: NewsCore
November 12, 2010 6:

Human remains have been found in the search for missing Australian 10-year-old Zahra Baker in North Carolina, local TV reported today, citing a source close to the investigation.

Police in Hickory would not confirm that human remains were found, but authorities released a statement today saying potentially valuable evidence had been discovered.

"Search teams in Caldwell County yesterday located evidence that could provide valuable information in the Zahra Baker case,” the statement said.

“This evidence will be analysed at the NC State Bureau of Investigation's lab. We understand the concern and interest in this case by the public but we must be cautious in prematurely releasing information so it will not jeopardise any future criminal proceedings.”

Zahra’s Biological Mother Visits Memorial Outside Baker Home

Updated: 5:26 pm EST November 11, 2010

HICKORY, N.C. -- Zahra Baker’s biological mother, Emily Dietrich, traveled to Hickory from Australia, arriving sometime Thursday.

VIDEO: Zahra's Biological Mother Visits Memorial Outside Baker Home
http://www.wsoctv.com/video/25763688/index.html


The Hickory Police Department would not confirm Dietrich’s arrival, but neighbors on the street where Zahra Baker lived with her father and stepmother said they saw Dietrich there with a television crew early Thursday morning.

Neighbor Eddie Mitchell said he was getting his newspaper at 7:30 a.m. when he saw Dietrich kneeling at a memorial for Zahra set up outside of the home.

“She said she'd been on a plane for 23, 24 hours,” he said, adding that she was overcome with emotion.

“(She was) crying the whole time," he said. "She just said, ‘It's just awful.’"

Neighbor Jennie Bost said she spoke to Dietrich, too.

"She was in tears and she said her heart was breaking," Bost said.

They said Dietrich stayed for about 45 minutes, looking at the letters and stuffed animals left in honor of her missing daughter.

Mitchell said they spoke for 15 minutes before he said goodbye.

"She asked if she could hug me and we hugged," he said. "And I said to her, ‘Just keep going, believe and just keep going.’"

Possible remains found in Zahra disappearance

Hole dug, evidence taken at Dudley Shoals search site in Caldwell County

By Sarah Newell williamson
Updated: November 11, 2010 - 1:19 PM





GRANITE FALLS --

When investigators searched the Dudley Shoals area in Caldwell County on Wednesday, they found possible human remains in connection with Zahra Baker’s homicide.

The evidence is being sent to the SBI lab in Raleigh to be analyzed. Hickory police is saying the evidence “could provide valuable information in the Zahra Baker case.”

On Wednesday, Gunpowder Creek was searched, as well as the brush along the banks. A BOB-CAT was also brought in to trim the brush farther up the banks. In one area, investigators searched about 10 feet from the banks of Gunpowder Creek. At this spot, there is now a two-and-a-half foot deep hole that gapes 10-feet wide. The hole is about 25 feet from the end of a paved access road.

The hole wasn’t visible on Wednesday, before law enforcement closed the road to traffic around mid-day. Inside this hole is a smaller, distinct, round hole in the dirt. All of the dirt from the hole was also taken with the investigators.

A white evidence flag was marked at the edge of the hole. At previous search sites, a white flag was used to mark bones.

There was a medical examiner from Chapel Hill who was on-hand at the search site Wednesday, according to officials on the scene.

The Dudley Shoals area has been searched at least twice before Wednesday in connection with Zahra Baker’s disappearance. On Oct. 25, Zahra’s stepmother, Elisa Baker, was spotted in a vehicle that was at the scene briefly.

Thank you for the update and the pictures, J4A. I am just heartbroken. Sad

Elisa Baker couldn't have done this on her own.

I agree, Piper. No way could she have done it by herself. The most gruesome Nancy Grace show I've ever watched was on tonight~

...part of Zahra's remains found at the Dudley Shoals location (speculation that her skull was found here)... Adam never lived at this location, only Elisa...Her body dismembered and possibly buried in several different locations...now I understand all the more why biomum mentioned getting all of Zahra's body pieces together for a proper burial in Australia. Sad

Just awful what was done to such a sweet little heroine from Oz~

The Dudley Shoals location is only 2 exits below where I live, and I take the Dudley Shoals Road when going to Kelli's house. I am going to Kelli's Friday nite for dinner with Kelli, her BF Dennis and his mom. It is about 7 miles from my apt to Kelli's condo, but if the Dudley Shoals Road is closed, I will have to drive about 20 miles to get there.

Mama, this is taking place in your backyard. It comes across that your community is full of good, caring people.

Since Eliza lived in that area, she thought she was being smart taking Zahra's remains back there. Seems many killers dispose of their victims "close to home", somewhere they are familiar with. How gruesome to know that she was dismembered. I had assumed that with the hit on the woodchipper. It just makes no sense how this child beat all the odds with a smile on her face. Then meets a tragic fate of abuse and torture from some lunatic, evil woman while her father stood by and allowed it to happen. How long is it going to take before they can put him behind bars again? He is not innocent in this, no way no how. JMO.

I understand that the reason LE took all that soil around the burial site at DS was to check to see who it was that was there to bury part of Zahra's remains. If it was Elisa and Adam, then he will be arrested. Let's hope he can't slip out of the country-LE is watching him, I'm sure, but I'd feel better if he was behind bars.

Police call off search for Zahra Baker after finding 'significant evidence'

Friday, Nov 12 2010, 8:27 am

CALDWELL COUNTY, N.C. -- Hickory police called off the search for a missing 10-year-old after they found, what they called, "significant evidence."

Officers said Thursday evening the evidence they found in the case of Zahra Baker that they're calling off the search for the 10-year-old who has been missing since Oct. 9.

Channel 9 Eyewitness News learned from sources that investigators found human remains on Wednesday when they searched in and near Gunpowder Creek off Dudley Shoals Road in Caldwell County.

Deputy Chief Clyde Deal wouldn't comment on what was found but said he will not send additional search teams to the area in the future.

Zahra's father, Adam Baker, had no comment on the developments.

This has to be the most horrific case I've ever heard of.

I have a hard time wrapping my mind around what has been done to this beautiful little girl in life and death.

I pray that the recent discovery will bring her home so she can be laid to rest propery and her family and friends can find solace.

I think there is going to be a press release today @ 4pm.

Hi KB!

This article also mentions a press release for today.

Report: Police believe remains to be those of missing N.C. girl
Zahra Baker went missing on Oct. 9

NBC News and news services
updated 1 hour 44 minutes ago

HICKORY, N.C. — Hickory police plan to hold a news briefing in which investigators will announce that remains found the day before are in fact that of a missing 10-year-old North Carolina girl, a source told a TV station Friday.

Hickory police scheduled a press conference for 4 p.m. PT, but did not release further details, according to NBC affiliate WCNC TV.

In the beginning, Adam was staying @ his boss's home. When they had to leave the house in Hickory, and Eliza was arrested, Adam's boss allowed him to move into his home. When LE took his vehicles, the boss drove him back and forth to the house. He even drove him to Charlotte to meet the plane when his mom and brother arrived from Australia.

Now that the boss has served eviction papers on Adam, and his rental house has been destroyed by LE, add to that the boss also has a little girl, I'm sure Adam is not welcome at the boss's house at this time. I had heard he had moved back to live with Eliza's family (grandparents) where they first lived when they came from Australia. Now that Eliza is blaming Adam for the horrendous actions after the death, I'm not sure where he is living. LE has his passport and his vehicles, I don't think he is going anywhere, except maybe to jail.

The only problem is, did they make a deal with Eliza to discover where the remains were, and they can't charge either of them with murder, what is the worse they can be charged with?

Hi Jules!

I'm wondering if they found all of her remains, I had heard it was partial. I don't think we've gotten any sort of confirmation on the bone they found earlier. Let's hope the press conf will clear that up.

Thanks for the info, Mama and hi KB!! Razz

Maybe it keeps the death penalty off the table for her? Since Adam hasn't been arrested for anything, I wouldn't think a deal would include him just yet. I don't know. Elisa should never see the light of day. And in my opinion, Adam knew what was going on and more than likely both of them were involved in the coverup and getting rid of Zahra's body. I think Elisa alone murdered Zahra myself. I know all the facts aren't in yet, just my speculation.

KB, last I heard it was partial.

My Mom just told me a few minutes ago that Fox News reported that the DNA is Zahra's.

Hi Piper!!!

I can't go there, it kills me too! Sad

I'm thinking the EB is singing like a bird and not a completely honest one at that! I smell "plea deal".

Mama, I refuse to believe charges are not imminent. Manslaughter at the least?
