It was August 15, 2006 when Liz and husband David Carroll said on that 3 year old Marcus Fiesel disappeared in an Anderson Township, OH park. This sparking a search by thousands of volunteers that lasted several days. Marcus’ mom Liz Caroll tearfully begged people to help find her son, all the while she knew exactly what had happened and what she did to this poor child.
Marcus Fiesel, RIP
The death of 3-year-old Marcus Fiesel, who authorities said was killed by his foster parents in 2006, will be featured on “Deadline: Crime with Tamron Hall” 10 p.m. Sunday on the Investigation Discovery channel.
The one-hour show includes an interview with Liz Carroll, Marcus’ foster mother, who is serving a life prison sentence after her conviction in a Clermont County Common Pleas Court in 2007.
Investigation Discovery, one of the sister Discovery Channel networks, can be found in Greater Cincinnati on Time Warner Channels 1139 (HD) and 139, and on Northern Kentucky Time Warner Channels 948 (HD) and 471, and Cincinnati Fioptics Channels 675 (HD) and 275.
What really happened to Marcus as Liz Carroll was providing crocodile tears …
Liz and David Carroll wrapped Marcus in a blanket, bound him with duct tape and left him in a hot closet without food and water while they went out of town for a weekend family reunion, prosecutors said.
After finding him dead, David Carroll and his live-in lover, Amy Baker, took Marcus’ body to a rural area and burned it with gasoline. Then they threw the remains in the Ohio River.
The horrific 2006 murder of 3 year old Marcus Fiesel, a special needs Foster child, was one that shocked the senses of everyone, including myself. However, from the outset of the case of missing Marcus Fiesel, some thing just seemed to be wrong. Flashback to 2006, Scared Monkeys followed the events from the outset and had posted some rather critical articles of the foster parents accounts, obviously striking a nerve with Liz Carroll. The posts prompted Liz to leave a comment on Missing & Exploited web page that was far from PG rated and some what threatening. Needless to say it was forwarded to authorities. That very next morning, as fate would have it, Liz and David Carroll were arrested in the death of Marcus Fiesel.
Newspapers and television stations in southwest Ohio have followed every step in the case, and now that his foster parents have been charged, the story has grabbed the attention of media outlets throughout the United States.
There are Web sites that feature photo albums, message boards, chat rooms and slide and video shows. One of those is www.scaredmonkeys.com, dedicated to exploited and missing children. “Red,” one of the site’s co-founders, said after news of Marcus’ disappearance was linked to his Web site, he received an e-mail from Marcus’ foster mother. She chastised the site for their portrayal.
“As soon as she did that, well, it was like, she’s guilty,” Red said Friday from his office in Maine. “You knew this was going to end bad. The radar just went up. It raises the hair on the back of your neck. When you kill your son, and go public pleading for help, it brings it to a special level of hell.”
He said Marcus’ story has drawn widespread coverage because people are so “disgusted by it.” (Middletown Journal)
Here is one comment from Liz that we were able to print. Too bad she was lying through her murderous teeth.
First, I would like to state that the most important thing that everyone should be concerned about is finding my son. My family’s past and living arrangements have absolutely nothing to do with finding him. My family left our home to avoid media and multiple stangers from sitting outside our house at all hours. We have cooperated 110% with the detectives and have stayed in touch with them on a daily basis. Again, my family has done nothing wrong, we love and miss Marcus. I regret going to the park, not sitting down and not eating that morning. My family and I take day care and foster care children to King’s Island, Water parks, town parks, YMCA, aquariums, carnivals, festivals, and many more places. Since this incident, I have not been left alone and we haven’t taken out kids anywhere but school shopping. I am begging for anyone and everyone that reads this to PLEASE help me find my son. I know that I will not be able to care for him after this incident but I still need to know that he is alright. PLEASE call crime stoppers with ANY possible leads!!!!!!Thank you.

DHS & Police Searching for Missing 14 Month OId Mariah Nichols & Parents Damien Lee Nichols and Dusty Ann Willman in Molalla, OR (Update: Child Found Safe)
DHS and the police in Molalla, Oregon are searching for missing 14 month old Mariah Nichols and her parents, 37 year old Damien Lee Nichols and 39 year old Dusty Ann Willman. Mariah Nichols is considered to be endangered as the state of Oregon was awarded custody of the toddler because she was considered to be in need of medical attention following a welfare visit from the Department of Human Services by a Child Protective Services social worker. The parents agreed to turn over physical custody of their daughter at a local urgent care center and meet the social worker there. However, the parents telephoned and stated that they changed their mind. How does the State trust the parents to turn over custody and meet them at a clinic, when they obviously did not trust the parents to care for the child?
Molalla Police continue to search for a missing 14-month-old girl who is consider to be endangered.
The state of Oregon was awarded custody little Mariah Nichols because she was considered to be in need of medical attention when workers from the Department of Human Services last saw the girl on Wednesday.
During a morning welfare visit at a relative’s apartment in Molalla, a Child Protective Services social worker noticed sores on the girl’s face. Mariah’s parents.
Yet another failing of DHS, they should have been looking out for the welfare of the child and removed little Mariah Nichols from the home and brought the toddler to the clinic for a medical visit themselves. If they thought the parents were neglecting the child, why would they trust them to bring her to the urgent care clinic for medical care?
If anyone has seen 14 month old Mariah Nichols or her parents, Damien Lee Nichols or Dusty Ann Willman, please call 9-1-1 or the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office at 503-655-8211.
UPDATE I: Police and the FBI found 14-month-old Mariah Nichols on Saturday. She was found safe at a home in rural Clackamas County outside of Molalla.
