I agree 100% Fystyangel. Im hoping no charges means they are making sure they have everything tied up to get stiff penaltys in place. Im afraid this is going to be alot bigger than I can imagine by the time its all said and done. I will patiently wait for charges with hope No rock will be left unturned.

Im so curious about what will come out in this. I think more people are involved than meets the eye. I just have a hard time wrapping my mind around the cruelty of the whole thing. How anyone could look at any child and want to hurt, kill, and dismember them is beyond my realm of thinking. I hope for harsh justice in this case although I dont think its humanly possible for fair justice here.

With no more than they found, I don't think they will ever be able to prove HOW Zahra died. Therefore, I don't think anyone will be charged with murder. Since she was not taken back to the doctor for over a year, the cancer could have come back and killed her. However, both can be charged with Voluntary Manslaughter for not getting her checked every month. They can be charged with desecrating a human body. But the only evidence they have is what has come from Elisa's mouth, blaming everything on Adam. The Hickory Police Chief and the DA are working real hard on this case and are interviewing lots and lots of people. I have great respect for both these men and I'm sure they are doing everything humanly possible to put an end to this case. I'm just afraid it's not going to be as severe as I would like.

Elisa Baker is scheduled to be arraigned Friday in District Court in Newton. The 42-year-old is currently jailed on charges of obstructing the investigation into her stepdaughter's disappearance last fall.

Work begins on Zahra memorial

CALDWELL COUNTY,NC (WBTV) – Ground was broken Thursday for a permanent memorial to Zahra Baker, the ten year old girl who was reported missing from Hickory in October, then found dismembered in Caldwell County.

A makeshift memorial has been at the spot on Christie Road in Caldwell County ever since the victim's prosthetic leg and a bone were found nearby.

"This concrete memorial will be something for people to visit for a long time, " said landowner Jake Icenhour.

"It will be here as long as I'm alive, I can assure you of that."

Icenhour and several others were building forms for the concrete that will be poured at the site in the next week or two.

Elisa Baker, who lead authorities to the dismembered body of 10-year-old Zahra Baker, was hit with another worthless check charge this week.

This week's worthless check charge has a $500 bond, which now brings the total bond for Elisa Baker in the Catawba County Jail to $96,700.

The document fails to shed much light on the mystery surrounding the 10-year-old girl’s death and dismemberment.

The death certificate lists the manner of death as “Pending.” Time of death: “Unknown.”

Zahra Baker case turned over to district attorney's office


The district attorney’s office is reviewing more than 11,000 pages of the Hickory Police Department’s investigation into the death of Zahra Clare Baker.

The police department turned its investigative file over to the district attorney’s office late Wednesday afternoon, said Eric Farr, spokesman for the district attorney’s office.

“What we’ve done is sent everything in an organized fashion that we have to make a decision on charges,” said Maj. Clyde Deal with the Hickory Police Department, and one of the lead investigators in the case.

“I’ve been with the Hickory Police Department for almost 26 years, and I don’t recall any case file being this large,” Deal said. “It’s the biggest case I’ve worked on.”

The case file the police department submitted to the district attorney’s office fills two five-inch notebooks, and includes 117 DVDs of interviews and 65 DVDs with phone records and photos, Deal said. There are 11,000 pages on discs, and that doesn’t include what the N.C. State Bureau of Investigation will submit.

Zahra investigative file contains 30,000 pages, 117 DVDs

The file is "probably the largest I can remember," said Hickory Police Major Clyde Deal. The file details everything that local investigators found, tested, and sent off. There are 117 DVD's with recorded interviews, some involving stepmother Elisa baker and Zahra's father Adam.

There are also 65 cd's with maps, photographs and other documents. In addition to all that is a cd with 11 thousand pages of information. The District Attorney's Office says it is still waiting for the file from the State Bureau of Investigations.

Many of the interviews will have to be transcribed, and everything else will have to be printed. Officials say it could bring the total page count to 30,000. The state is being asked to help in the matter and the files may be taken to Raleigh to be uploaded into a state server and printed.

Elisa Baker could be out of jail by Spring

The stepmother of Zahra Baker remains behind jail in Catawba County, but that could change this spring if no new charges are filed against her.

Baker was arrested on October 10 and faces various traffic and other misdemeanor charges that usually do not result in active jail time.

By the time her next court date arrives in April, Baker will have already spent six months behind bars awaiting trial.

"She will already have maxed out her sentence on the Obstruction charge even before she's tried for it," said her defense attorney Scott Reilly on Wednesday. "You can't keep someone in jail for more than the maximum sentence she would get even if she were found guilty

Elisa Baker had an uncanny ability to stay ahead of bill collectors, police, social workers and her multiple husbands, The Associated Press discovered in an investigation of the woman who led authorities to the dismembered remains of her disabled, 10-year-old stepdaughter.

Few saw her pattern because when she abandoned a relationship, she usually severed all ties. In seven years, she had no fewer than 42 different addresses. During a different three-year stretch, she was married to three men at the same time.

Zahra's dad talks on TV

Rachel Browne
February 20, 2011

THE Australian father of slain 10-year-old Zahra Baker reveals his side of the story for the first time, denying he was involved in his daughter's death, in an interview with 60 Minutes to air tonight.

Speaking to reporter Liz Hayes, Adam Baker refutes his wife Elisa Baker's claim that he dismembered his daughter's body.

"That's the biggest lie she's ever told," he said.

This interview will air on the Australian version of 60 Minutes. The show's website says "there will be no video or transcript available due to ongoing legal proceedings in the US."

From the link provided by Justice4All~

"Mr Baker revealed he feared his wife, whom he calls Lisa, was hurting Zahra after he noticed she had a black eye. "I asked both Lisa and Zahra how that happened. Lisa started out saying Zahra slipped in the bathroom, hitting her head on the cabinet. Zahra backed that up. I think she was told to; she was scared."

I think he was scared of her, too, but he should have left her pronto.

You da man, J4A!

Why can't Adam Baker admit he failed his daughter, if even to say he sees that now in hindsight? I could sympathize with him if he did that much. Its hard to believe he didn't know what was going on.

I was hoping when she asked if he was guilty of anything, that he would at the very least say that he was guilty of placing Zarah in danger and not protecting her. The very least. But nope, he says he isn't guilty of anything. Indeed.

Stepmother indicted on charge of second degree murder
http://www.comcast.net/articles/news-general/20110221/US.Disabled.Girl.Killed/
HICKORY, N.C. — The stepmother of a 10-year-old disabled girl was indicted Monday on charges she killed the freckle-faced child and then desecrated her remains to cover up the slaying, according to court documents.

A grand jury in Catawba County charged Elisa Baker with second-degree murder in the death of Zahra Baker. Authorities planned to discuss the case at a news conference later in the day.

Zahra, who used a prosthetic leg and hearing aids after being stricken with cancer, disappeared four months ago. No one had been charged in her death, though Elisa Baker had been charged with obstructing justice in the investigation. Police eventually found the girl's remains in different locations around western North Carolina. Authorities still have not said how the girl died.

The indictment cites aggravating factors, saying Elisa Baker had a history of physically, verbally and psychologically abusing Zahra. And it says she desecrated Zahra's body to hinder detection and prosecution of the killing.

I'm glad that the stepmom has finally been charged BUT I don't understand how her father can live with himself....knowing how his beautiful daughter was treated by HIS WIFE! IMO...Zahra's death is just as much HIS fault! Poor Zahra....R.I.P.

Breaking news.............



Elisa Baker charged with 2nd-degree murder


Monday, Feb. 21, 2011 / Updated: Monday, Feb. 21, 2011 04:46 PM


Elisa Baker was charged today with second-degree murder in the death of her stepdaughter, Zahra Baker -- the first charges filed in connection with the death of the cancer survivor who was first reported missing last Fall.

Also Monday, social service agencies in Catawba and Caldwell Counties revealed that they had investigated the Bakers a total of four times after receiving reports that Zahra was being mistreated.

A grand jury returned the second-degree murder indictment at noon against Elisa Baker, and Hickory police called a news conference to announce the charges.

"The members of "Team Zahra" have been working toward this milestone in this case since the first words spoken on the 911 call made on October 9, 2010." said Hickory Police Chief Tom Adkins. "There has not been a day gone by without members of our team thinking about Zahra or this case."

Zahra's father, Adam Baker, said he was grateful. In court documents, Elisa Baker claimed that Adam Baker dismembered Zahra.

"I'm extremely grateful that Hickory Police and everybody else has taken their time, gone through everything properly and come to the conclusion that they should have come to," Adam Baker told WBTV Monday afternoon.

He later said "I had no involvement with Zahra's death or dismemberment."

During Monday's press conference, Caldwell District Attorney Jay Gaither said "at this time, the state has no credible evidence to suggest that anyone other than Elisa baker was involved in the murder. ..."

Jay Gaither, district attorney representing Burke, Caldwell and Catawba counties made the announcement of the indictment that was filed at 12 p.m. Monday.

Here are the details:

• Second-degree murder charge for Elisa Baker.

• The indictment states that Elisa Baker had a history of and pattern of physical, verbal and psychological abuse against Zahra.

• It also states that Elisa hid the victim from family members and desecrated Zahra's body to hinder detection, investigation and prosecution of the offense.

• The indictment further states that the victim, Zahra Baker, was young and physically impaired, which refers to her prosthetic leg and hearing aids.

• Autopsy reports states Zahra's body was dismembered. Report reads "cut/tool mark injuries identified on the partial skeletal remains."

• Exact cause of death listed as "undetermined homicidal violence"

• Based on their findings, Gaither said there is no credible evidence to suggest anyone other than Elisa Baker was involved in death of Zahra.

There were four investigations into the family due to alleged abuse of Zahra and Adam Baker acts as if he didn't know there was a problem?

Adam Baker Feels Vindication After Elisa Baker Charged

Posted: 7:03 pm EST February 21, 2011
Updated: 7:14 pm EST February 21, 2011

HICKORY, N.C. -- Attorney Mark Killian said his client is vindicated after Hickory police announced second-degree murder charges against Elisa Baker -- and no charges against Adam Baker.

Killian said Baker was relieved when he heard about the charges and said Baker has maintained throughout the investigation that he wasn't involved at all.

When asked how much his client knew about Elisa Baker's alleged involvement in Zahra's disappearance, Killian said, "I don't think he knows a 100 percent of anything."

"Like I said, he worked long hours around the time this was going on," Killian added. "There's still some questions he's got in his mind that we want answered."

Thanks Piper for the beautiful video of Zahra. Being from Hickory originally, and now from Caldwell county, this case really hit this area hard.

By the way, did this video have sound, or is it just my computer? I had no sound.

Doesn't make any sense does it? His employer stated he wasn't playing with a full deck.
