A Deadly Game of Tug of War: The Kelsey Smith-Briggs Story

Kelsey was a bubbly ray of sunshine. It is impossible to comprehend how anyone could harm a child, much less have something happen when so many were watching so closely. The lesson from Kelsey's death is not only a cry to stop child abuse, but a reminder to cherish the little ones in our lives, and a warning to those embroiled in custody battles to take the focus off themselves and put it where it belongs, on the innocent children who did not ask to be a pawn in someone's game.

I have been involved in this case for years. I have read every document, spoke to family members on both sides of the family, seen every interview and continue a friendship with the paternal side of Kelsey's family. I can't get over how many LIES are in this book. I lost count on page three, but what do I expect from the man who sent Kelsey to the very bed in the very home that she was murdered in? If you want the true story about Kelsey Briggs read Who Killed Kelsey? and the most important part of the story-the official documents in the case. When you do, you will see how the most harmful lie in this book "from June to October 11 I had not seen one reason to not turn Kelsey back to her mother Raye Dawn Smith" is the most harmful lie. Poor Kelsey had 2 broken legs, a broken collar bone, and multiple bruises and abrasions. Judge Craig Key belongs in jail next to Raye Dawn Smith and Michael Lee Porter. 

Awful
