Dead little girl giving life to sick child with heart donation​

Princess, woodsMagical 5-year-old Laylah Petersen was sitting at her living room with her grandfather when someone shot twelve bullets into her home killing her instantly. The horrific crime stunned an entire community in Milwaukee and even the chief police officer said he won't rest until he finds the assassin. Little Laylah was a happy kindergartener who loved Disney princesses and was partially in love with Elsa and Anna from Frozen. Now, thanks to the generosity of her family members Laylah will bring life to another child because they donated her heart.

The barbarism of this crime is something out of a gangster movie and police chief Ed Flynn doesn't understand how this could happen in his community. He believed the house was targeted by mistake, since apparently the grandfather is a decent man. The assassin walked right up to the front door and shot twelve rounds through the front window, hitting little Laylah who was sitting on her grandpa's lap. Flynn knows that someone in the community has some answers and he is urging people to come forward with any information. This is incredibly sad!

There's a reward of $15,000 and hopefully that will persuade people to talk. Residents of the community feel threatened and they don't feel safe in their homes anymore. Can you imagine? You are in the safety of your own home and suddenly someone starts shooting at you. Insane! I hope they find the criminals soon because a crime like this can't go unpunished. This is really unspeakable! Nothing is going to bring back that beautiful little girl, but her family knows that her spirit will live on through her heart.

They decided to donate her heart to another child whose life is in danger. Laylah was a sweet, loving and generous child and her family knows that she would have loved to share her heart with a child in need. Rest In Peace little Laylah, I'm sure you'll dress up heaven with sparkles, bright colors and tiaras.
