Aliahna Lemmon Benefit Fund

The Aliahna Lemmon Benefit Fund has been set up for the family of murdered 9-year-old girl, Aliahna Lemmon. Monies donated to the fund will be turned over to the family for expenses and counseling.

Tragic Ending
The search for the missing Indiana girl ended in tragedy when parts of Aliahna's body were recovered near the family home in Ft. Wayne. According to a probable cause affidavit, the alleged killer disposed some of her dismembered remains in a dumpster and hid the rest, her head, hands and feet, in his freezer. Police say trusted family friend, Michael Plumadore, who has a criminal record in three states, has been charged with her murder after he allegedly confessed to repeatedly striking her in the head with a brick and then later dismembering her body with a hacksaw.

Police: Facebook cry for help ends kidnapping

A Utah woman’s Facebook friends allegedly saved her from captivity by an abusive boyfriend after she posted a call for help on the social media site Saturday, according to local news reports.

"Hello. Is anyone out there? I am having a serious problem and me and [my son] will be dead by morning," she wrote on her Facebook page, according to police.

Friends soon began to respond asking what was wrong and trying to figure out where she was. One friend in South Carolina posted the woman's address. A Utah firefighter on vacation in Denver then contacted authorities, affiliate KSL reported.

Police say that when they arrived at her home in the town of Sandy, they discovered that the woman was being held against her will, along with her 17-month-old son, by boyfriend Troy Critchfield. Critchfield, 33, initially refused to allow officers into the home, but they eventually took him into custody, Sandy Police Dept. Sgt. John Arnold said Tuesday.

According to Arnold, the woman told police that Critchfield had kept her in the house for four or five days, punching or choking her every time she tried to leave. Critchfield allegedly did not even allow her to go outside to feed her dog.

Arnold said that the woman managed to hide in a closet with a laptop briefly to post the Facebook message.

According to jail records, Critchfield is being held on a laundry list of charges, including aggravated kidnapping, aggravated assault, domestic violence, child abuse and cruelty to animals. His bond is set at over $250,000. CNN has been unable to reach Critchfield or an attorney on his behalf.
