Target: Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi
Goal: Demand justice for young boy found dead in his home after a long search.
The body of a 3-year-old boy was found in his own home after an extensive search by police, his family, and the public. The boy has been identified as Ahizya Osceola and according to police his body was discovered in a position that he wouldn’t have been able to place himself in. The police described the location where his body was discovered as “obscured and not readily visible to the average person.”
What’s even more unsettling about this case is that the police searched for the boy along with the public long before he was found. The boy’s mother, Karen Cypress, even made a public plea for her son to be returned to her safely. According to the boy’s father, he last saw him sleeping before he left for work, and he was notified of his disappearance via text message. The wife of the boy’s father, whose name has not been released, sent the message as she was left home with him the day he went missing.
It seems unusual that the boy had been lying lifeless in the home all along, unseen by both the police and the family who reportedly searched desperately for him. As mentioned, the details don’t seem to add up and the investigation should be thorough, for the sake of the victim, who was much too young to understand what was happening.
Sign the petition below to demand justice for the victim whose death remains a mystery.
Dear Florida Attorney General Pam Bomdi,
The death of 3-year-old Ahizya Osceola is a tragedy and deserves significant attention. The details of his discovery paint a horrific picture of the scene where the boy’s killer was likely someone he trusted–someone close. According to the family, he just went missing, but it is highly unlikely that he ever left the home as that is where he was found.
According to the police, this isn’t the first time they’ve visited this family. There have been a total of four investigations involving the child’s parents, after which Ahizya and his siblings had to be taken away from the home. There may have been abuse occurring in the home long before Ahizya went missing and his death has prompted police officers to remove the other children from the home and they have been placed with relatives. This case, along with other homicides involving children should be handled with a sense of urgency.
I urge you to find and punish the person who is found guilty of harming this young boy.
