Around 1:30 Thursday afternoon in a Pittsburgh hospital, 16 month old Angela Beard died of injuries she suffered on Sunday morning.
As of 9 p.m. the Altoona Police Department arrested the suspect they think caused those fatal injuries.
We’ll bring you more details on that case as we continue to learn more.
There’s a donation drive set up at First National Bank. There’s also a gofundme page for Angela. Click here to see it. Here’s the write up from that page.
Angela Elizabeth Beard passed away peacefully in the arms of family on 5/24/18. During her short time on earth, she touched many lives and was loved dearly. Angela is deeply loved by mommy, daddy, big sister Adrianna, grandparents, great-grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, and many others.
We had so many hopes, so many fears, there has been so much joy, so much sorrow, and now all our words seem empty. What we want we cannot have; and what we thought was promised has been taken from us.
Oh God, do not let our pain turn to the bitterness that devours us. We thank you for all that was good. Help us to find peace in troubled times, and light in our darkness. Amen.
There is also an account setup at First National Bank. You can go to any branch and tell them you want to donate to the Angela Beard Fund. Thank you
