Melody Vang has died , according to the following statements posted on social media on January 11. 2020.
Where is baby Kate aka Katherine Shelbie Elizabeth Phillips? 6h · Update- Melody Vang spent most of her two years of life in foster care before she was returned to her parents’ custody last year. Early on Sunday, officers found Melody dead on the back porch of her family’s St. Paul home. Police arrested her mother and father on suspicion of murder, and prosecutors charged Ciashia Lee, 29, with second-degree unintentional murder on Monday. Lee said she lost her temper when Melody kept crying and waking up her infant, so she “kept hitting” her daughter, according to the criminal complaint, which said she put her face in her hands and cried as she told the police. The Ramsey County medical examiner’s office determined the toddler died of closed head trauma due to assault. About 12 hours before Melody’s father called police on Sunday, the family’s landlord was at the Dayton’s Bluff residence. He was so disturbed by bruising on Melody’s face, he took photos of her — they showed her right eye and left cheek had large, dark bruises — and he contacted child protection, the complaint said. Asked whether Ramsey County Social Services had started to look into the matter over the weekend, county communications manager John Siqveland said they can’t provide details about cases. Past court records tell some of the story about Melody’s short life and how child protection got involved when she was born. Melody, who turned 2 last September, was “a good baby,” her foster parent reported; she enjoyed the attention that all her siblings gave her, a child protection worker wrote in March. The children were returned to Lee and John Vang, Melody’s father, after both parents completed chemical dependency and mental health evaluations, according to court documents. “The death of Melody Vang is a heartbreaking tragedy,” Siqveland said Monday. “We join her family, friends and community in mourning her loss.” He said the county can’t comment on the specifics of a child protection case. “Once a case is discharged by the court and a child reunited, the county has no legal authority to continue child protection services unless a new allegation has been made,” Siqveland added. INVESTIGATION CONTINUES The investigation continues into whether charges will be filed against John Vang, 42, according to the county attorney’s office. After Lee’s arrest on Sunday, police told her there was a lot of bruising on Melody and she said she was responsible for all of it, according to the criminal complaint. She said there were bruises on the girl before the last incident and she couldn’t remember how many times she hit her. Vang called the police about 1:30 a.m. Sunday and said something about wanting to talk to a crisis intervention officer before hanging up. When officers responded to the home on Third Street, near Earl Street, Vang asked them “to keep it down as his 2-year-old daughter was not alive,” the complaint said. He told them he didn’t want his other children to see the girl. He said he and Lee wrapped her body in a blanket, which they took to the back porch so it wouldn’t smell. Paramedics pronounced her dead. Five other children, ranging from 8 months to 11-years-old, were at the home and placed in protective custody.
