I realize my "dissertation" didn't have much to do with articles or facts, aside from the bit about Peter's blog.  Those things were just on my heart, and it all came tumbling out.

My husband "follows" these cases, too (I put that in quotes because his following really only involves him absorbing what I tell him when I'm reading about them).  He wants me to post, though, what he just had to say about this particular case:

Soprano's husband says:
"Equally as important to the welfare of children in dating relationships, is that the boyfriend (or whomever isn't the parent of the kids at hand) be aware of the place he ought to take when he invades a family unit, even with the best intentions.  I knew your kids would be your first priority, and if I wasn't willing to accept that, and make them my first concern, as well, I had no business being in that relationship.  Any man who isn't willing to join the mother in putting the kids first, has no right to involve himself with a mother.  The kids come first, and their protection and well-being are central, because they are the primary interest of YOUR new-found interest. If you want her, you'd better be man enough to love those who come with her."

As all here do, we hope and pray Elaina is found safely, and we pray for her sister and father and maternal & paternal grandparents to press on for the sister's sake and for what we hope is Elaina's safe return to her daddy.

Soprano, I applaud your husband for realizing and accepting his role in your children's lives. And you, for setting the bar high in the first place for any man that would be in your children's lives.

I do think the "dropped" Elaina is an alibi for any trauma on her body when she is found. (Reminds me of the Baby Katherine Phillips case here at RC. Sean Phillips-I yanked and ripped the car seat out of the car, didn't notice unsecured Kate until she went bouncing across the Wendy's parking lot, head first, oops.)

Anyway, here's a video of Elaina with her mother a day before she went missing.

If there is such a thing as good news in the case of a missing child, here it is: the disappearance of Elaina Steinfurth is still officially a missing persons case. Police in Toledo, Ohio say they haven't reclassified it as a homicide investigation. Now for the bad news: the missing toddler's own grandfather has said publicly that he thinks his granddaughter is dead.

Hundreds continue the search for Baby Elaina

Posted: Jun 15, 2013 5:11 PM CDT

(Video at link)

Little Elaina Steinfurth will be missing two weeks as of Sunday.

Her mother is in custody for child endangerment, but still no word on the one-year-old's whereabouts.

Saturday, hundreds searched streets and riverbanks and even garbage cans looking for any sign of the little girl.

One of searchers was Risa Smith, the organizer of 'Justice For Nevaeh.' Four years ago, Naveah Buchanan disappeared from her Monroe home, only to be found buried near the River Raisin two weeks later. Autopsy reports showed the child may have been buried alive. No one has been prosecuted for her death.

Both the mother and her boyfriend know exactly what hell was visited upon that little one. Both of them! A mother does not wake up to discover her child with a bump on the head, a black eye, and blood in a nostril without demanding an answer... unless she already knows the answer!

The mother sits outside and refuses to give the baby to her father.
Refuses and refuses while boyfriend goes inside.
Then, mother goes into the house and "discovers" the baby, 18 months old, is gone. AS IS THE BOYFRIEND.

Boy friend DOES return later to the house but, of course, the baby is GONE. 

Yep. They BOTH know where the little girl is.
A little girl who did not smile for pictures because there was nothing in her life to smile for.

Sweet, sweet child. May you be safely in trusting arms and with no more pain.

There are new details in the search for the missing East Toledo toddler.

Some volunteers put their own boat in the Maumee River Friday night to look for 18-month-old Elaina Steinfurth who was last seen on June 2nd.

These people care so much that many are not resting. They feel the need to keep moving and trying as the search nears the end of its third week.

Volunteers plan another search for Elaina Saturday beginning at 10 a.m.  A candlelight vigil is also scheduled for Saturday at 7 p.m. on Federal Street.

ELAINA STEINFURTH

Vigil, march for tot aim to rally efforts for further searches

About 100 gather in East Toledo to press for help in finding little girl

BY SAM GANS
BLADE STAFF WRITER


Shouts of “Bring Elaina home!” echoed down Federal Street in East Toledo on Saturday evening as about 100 people took part in a vigil and walked a loop around the neighborhood where 18-month-old Elaina Steinfurth last was seen.

The weather did not dim the group’s enthusiasm, though the strong winds and light rain prevented lighting the many candles that were planned for the vigil.

The crowd, led by Elaina’s paternal grandfather, Terry Steinfurth, Sr., began the vigil with a prayer before marching through the neighborhood and closed with a prayer for her safe return.

Angela Steinfurth in court on Monday

TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -  Angela Steinfurth, the mother of an 18-month-old east Toledo girl missing since June 2, was indicted on one count of obstructing justice Monday by a Lucas County Grand Jury.

Police got involved in the young girl's disappearance on the afternoon of June 2, when Elaina's father, Terry Steinfurth, showed up at a home in east Toledo to pick up the girl and her older sister. Elania's grandfather says Angela allowed their oldest to go with him, but refused to let him see Elaina. He says he persisted, and she refused.

That's when he says the children's grandfather, Terry Steinfurth Sr., arrived on scene. He says he wanted to help Terry Jr. get Elaina when Angela wouldn't give her up. Steinfurth Sr. says when he showed up, Angela told him the baby [Elaina] was napping, and she didn't want to wake her.

Posted: Jun 29, 2013 4:08 PM CDT Updated: Jun 29, 2013 5:44 PM CDT


TOLEDO, Ohio - Baby Elaina's father, T. J. Steinfurth, doesn't want his daughter forgotten.

It's been nearly a month since the toddler was reported missing. Today members of Elaina's family were at the High Level Bridge where volunteers have conducted numerous searches in recent weeks.

Elaina's dad says more needs to be done to bring his daughter home.

"To me it feels like it's just getting pushed onto the back burner. So, hopefully maybe now someone will see this and they will step up their game and actually get down here and help, because that's what we need."

The family is concerned because they think police may have found some new evidence Saturday. But T. J. Steinfurth says authorities tell him they won't put divers in the water until Monday.

Possible new lead in Elaina Steinfurth search

By Stephen Loiaconi
updated 2:04 PM EDT, Tue July 02, 2013

•Fisherman found possible strands of hair in river near home where missing toddler was last seen
•Police testing hair to determine if it is human
•18-month-old Elaina Steinfurth missing since June 2



A lock of hair pulled from the Maumee River could provide a new lead in the search for missing toddler Elaina Steinfurth.

A fisherman found the strands of brownish-blond hair on Saturday, according to the Toledo Blade.

He turned the evidence over to police, who have sent it away for testing to determine whether it is human hair, Toledo Police Department Sergeant Joe Heffernan told HLN. He said investigators hope to get those results in the next few days. If it is human, they will see if DNA can be recovered from it to examine for a possible match to Elaina’s DNA.

Little Elaina Steinfurth's family did what they've been doing for weeks on Saturday. They searched and they held a vigil for the missing toddler.

The 18-month-old disappeared on June 2 and her family is still searching for answers as to what happened. Her mother Angela Steinfurth remains in jail, charged with lying to the police about their investigation into the child's disappearance.

Elaina's grandfather Terry Steinfurth said. "I wish we could bring it to an end. I really do. We all need closure and somebody's got to know. We just need to find a way to make them talk."

He says police haven't told the family anything new. Right now they're waiting to find out if human hair found by a fisherman in the Maumee belongs to Elaina. The DNA results could take weeks.

Steinfurth said at a candlelight vigil on Wednesday night.

Elaina's adult cousin, Ginger Smith, added that Elaina's family has now moved into what they are calling the "recovery stage" of their efforts to find baby Elaina.

TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) - Another vigil was held Wednesday for missing one-year-old Elaina Steinfurth.

Elaina went missing at the beginning of June, and although family members say they are not giving up hope, they need to be realistic about the situation. They say they are now slowing down their search efforts and focusing on recovery.

"I gotta kind of take a step back and make sure my other daughter is getting the help she needs, and is getting through everything the way she needs to, and just trying to have somewhat of a normal life," said TJ Steinfurth, Elaina's father.

After 45 days of searching and waiting and praying, the family announced their decision to focus on their own recovery.

"Most times in situations like this, a child would surface within 72 hours, and it's day 45," TJ said.

Steven King has just been arrested in connection to the case of missing toddler, Elaina Steinfurth.

TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) - Steven King has been arrested in connection to the case of missing baby Elaina.

He is charged with felony obstruction of justice.

As reporters fired questions at King regarding baby Elaina's whereabouts, King replied we would all know the answers when he is found innocent.

Police say King has been impeding on their investigation and knew something about what happened to Elaina.

"Every day since this happened we've been out, interviewing, searching, trying to find out what we can verify as truth, and untruth. So I think this arrest helps move this case forward, in that respect. And like I said, expect more to come on this case," said Sgt. Joe Heffernan with the Toledo Police Department.

His attorney, Pete Rost, pushed for a lower bail, saying his client continually cooperated with police. Rost says King was only arrested after finally telling the FBI Monday that he wouldn't be speaking with them anymore.

Still, his bail was set at $250,000 and is not eligible for 10 percent bond.

Meanwhile, family and friends prepare for another prayer vigil for baby Elaina at night.

The bf, Stephen King, has told conflicting stories.
The last story conflicts the early or first story he told re what happened that day...

He needs to be arrested as does the baby's mothers.
They BOTH know what happened.
Now, please remove the older child from the home.... and make sure she is placed well and is protected....

If this is now considered a homicide I wonder what evidence the police have been able to discover. IMO both the Mother and boyfriend are guilty. I think they believe " no body no case". Hopefully they can get justice for this little girl.

A Facebook user posted to the page of Elaina's father TJ Steinfurth, saying her heart was breaking for her cousin TJ, and "RIP Baby girl! You will always be in our hearts!"

Another Facebook user asked if Elaina was found, and the cousin replied, "Yes, they found her buried in a box."

This has not been confirmed by officials or the Steinfurth family at this time, but the Lucas County Coroner has confirmed that a box with human remains was removed from a garage near King's home by police.

That's too bad. Sad 
I bet the coroner is going to find head or body trauma.
Remember, they said they "dropped" her?
Yeah, right.
Covering their ass es.

Oh no! So sad! At least her father and grandfather will have closure. But it is another lil light extinguished too early.

this is so sad!! 

but this quote from that article frustrates me

"Officers searched both the home and the garage in the days after Elaina disappeared.
They went to back to the home Thursday and removed the box with the remains, just hours after King appeared in court at a hearing where his trial date was scheduled.
Angela Steinfurth's stepfather, Richard Schiewe, said the box was not in the garage the day after the little girl was reported missing. He said he went into the garage with police when they searched the building.
"That body was not in the rafters," he said Friday. "Somebody went and got that body and put it in there.""

Sad 
I had hopes...

In order for the LE to go back to the garage, someone had to tell them.
LE made a bee line just to the garage.
LE told media they had been given info.
Then, LE recover the box and pull the bf, S King, in for more questioning.
This tells me the person who gave the info fingered S King.
My guess is the mother wants to get out so she is going to blame the bf whether it is true or not...
Mother was in the know and withheld info.

I am curious as to when the box with baby Elaina's little body was put into the garage? Hope that box is fingerprinted... Many boxes also have time/ID stamps from the manufacturer's. Hope this one does.
