Girl, 5, Strangled to Death after Being Sex-Trafficked by Own Mother
35-year-old Kristy Siple of Columbus, GA, was arrested and charged
A five-year-old Georgia girl, who was allegedly sex-trafficked by her own mother, was strangled to death, raped, and sodomized by a man.
35-year-old Kristy Siple of Columbus, GA, was arrested and charged in connection with the brutal killing of her five-year-old biological daughter Kamarie Holland, according to WTVM.
Siple reported the child missing on December 13, authorities said,
The other claimed Kamarie had disappeared from their Columbus home, WRBL reported.
She also claimed to find the home’s front door open.
Siple donated Kamarie’s toys to WTVM during the Christmas toy drive and provided them with an interview.
“I’m Kamarie Holland’s mommy, and she wouldn’t want nothing in the world but to donate her toys to another little child that was in need because she was a very helping child,” said Siple, also known as Kristy Hoskins.
“I’m a mommy. I did not have nothing to do with this,” Siple later added.
“She was my life."
"I lived for her daily. She was my only girl."
"I have three boys and her.”
The Human Trafficking Warrant states Siple “did knowingly subject another person to labor servitude or sexual servitude….she did agree with another person to pay her for having sexual intercourse and sodomy with her minor child.”
Siple sex-trafficked Kamarie to Jeremy Williams, 37, who had a history of abusing children, WRBL reports.
He was later arrested after authorities found Kamarie’s body in a vacant apartment near Phenix City, Alabama.
Wiliams was “charged with Capital Murder of a child less than 14.”
Russell County Sheriff Heath Taylor said Williams would face more charges.
“We expect in the next couple of days he will be charged with Capital Murder during the course of a Kidnapping, Capital Murder during Course of a Rape, Capital Murder during the course of Sodomy and Production of Child Pornography,” said Taylor, per WRBL.
Corey Holland, Kamarie’s father, provided a statement to WRBL on the despicable murder of his daughter:
The amount of pain Kristy has caused by ripping Kamarie out of our lives will never cease. We are glad to see that she has been arrested. We are one step closer to justice for Kamarie. We hope that justice is served. Kristy should receive whatever the maximum penalty she can get… She’s a monster.
A real mother protects and would die for her children. Kristy is a monster. My family and I will continue to wrestle with the loss of losing our angel Kamarie. We will ask that you continue to make your news about her and the justice she deserves.
Assistant Columbus Police Chief Joyce Dent-Fitzpatrick said:
“This has really struck a nerve for all of us because we really care about our kids and our community."
“The only thing I have to say is, please monitor where your kids are and who they are around.”
