THE WORST NEWS A PARENT CAN HEAR

Gulfport Child Is Murdered

Little Dale Smith was so excited about his tenth birthday next month. He was getting a play-station and a VCR for the TV in his room because he loved to watch movies. But the 9-year old Gulfport boy won't celebrate his birthday. Instead, his mother is preparing to bury her only child after Dale was allegedly beaten to death by his father.

Dale Smith was spending the summer with his father, Dale Senior, in Alexandria, Virginia. On Tuesday night, Dale's mother, Angela, got a call from an Alexandria police detective. The detective told her the worse news a parent can ever expect to hear. Her child was dead, and her ex-husband has been charged with murder. Police in Virginia are continuing their investigation.
