Dozens remember 2-year-old girl murdered in Warsaw


WARSAW, Ind. (AP) — Several dozen people recalled a 2-year-old northern Indiana girl as a happy and vibrant child during a candlelight vigil held a couple weeks after authorities say she was fatally beaten by her mother’s boyfriend.

Relatives and friends gathered Saturday evening at a Warsaw park, with several people saying prayers and sharing photographs of Adalin Stamper.

Vigil organizers say they hoped to build awareness about child abuse while also planning a Dec. 3 silent auction and fundraising dinner for Adalin’s family at an American Legion post in Warsaw.

Authorities say 30-year-old Christopher Grimmett of Warsaw beat Adalin and buried her body behind his brother’s home. Grimmett faces a murder charge and is being held without bond in the Kosciusko County Jail. A judge has entered a not-guilty plea for him.
