Members ashleysdad Posted January 7, 2008 Members Report Share Posted January 7, 2008 It doesn't seem to be getting any "easier". The holidays are always extremely painful as well as the anniversary of her death. My daughter drowned in a swimming pool while my ex-wifes new husband was "watching" her. His story was that he was SLEEPING in his bedroom and my daughter wandered outside and fell in the pool. It was December and it was cold, dark and raining and Ashley was scared of the dark and would have NEVER went out to that pool at night by herself!!! As her father I knew that. My ex had married this "person" less than 2 months before this happened. After it happened I found out that he had taken a $250,000 LIFE INSURANCE POLICY OUT ON MY DAUGHTER!!!!!!!!!!!! Needless to say I told the police it was no accident. They insisted it was an accident. Thanks to a great lawyer who wouldn't quit, the case was reopened. In June of 2007 he was arrested for murder one. He is sitting in jail at this moment. Some might think that it's a relief that he's in jail. It's a catch 22 though. I would much rather it be an accident. Because now I have to live with the fact that this monster MURDERED my 3 and 1/2 year old daughter. An accident is an accident. Accidents happen. But he killed her for money. She was my only child and I'm lost in this world now. I was one of those Dads who always said "if anyone ever hurts my daughter I will...." And then the worst possible thing happens to her and I do....nothing to him. I guess the best thing that can happen is if and when a trial happens he is sentenced to many many years in prison. And I hope that what I hear is true about what happens to guys in prison who hurt children.....This is a link to a website I did in her memory:http://www.ashleycaymclellan.com/Ashley/index.html Here is a tattooed portrait I had done a couple of years ago.
