Episode 138: Stevie Osborn

(This is a re-edit of an episode released in March, which was taken down shortly after release.)

On December 23, 2019, two-year-old Stevie Osborn was rushed to the hospital in Kansas City, Missouri, suffering from bruises all over her body, two skull fractures, and massive bleeding on the brain. After Stevie died during life-saving surgery, her death was ruled a homicide caused by blunt force trauma to the head. A report by child services pointed the finger squarely at two individuals, but a shocking act by the prime suspect in Stevie’s murder brought the police investigation to a screeching halt.

In this episode, you’ll hear my conversation with Stevie’s dad, Gary Osborn, who refuses to give up hope of seeing justice for his baby girl.

This is the story of a little girl whose violent death has received almost zero media coverage and has never resulted in criminal charges. It’s also the story of a heartbroken family who will do anything they can to keep her memory alive and to get some semblance of justice for her murder.

This is the infuriating story of Stevie Osborn.

I'm a mom of two, a bit of a smart-ass, and a writer/artistic sort by compulsion.

  1. Why has the mom not been charged what a sick world? I have been following this story since the beginning just makes me so disgusted with our system.

  2. This is infuriating. Stupid stupid crap mum. Joe was abusing your daughter. You knew but you didn’t care. Joe abused Stevie while he could get away with it. He knew he could with you. Then Joe went too far. The gutless wonder. I know why he killed himself. Does anyone else see this as clear as me?

  3. I was at this funeral. Abbey was acting like she was hosting a party. Not one once of sadness. She loved being the center of attention. Everyone was scared of pissing Abbey off because she was so mean. She would withhold letting Stevie see her Nana if Abbey was mad. Not to mention Abbey’s family calling DFS when Stevie was just a baby. Abbey would limit her bottles so Stevie “wouldn’t be a fat baby” Abbey needs to be charged end of story.
