Kelly Lynn Austin was five years old

Her story, until now, has went untold

Kelly was a beautiful, healthy child

With a lust for life that beamed when she smiled

One night as Kelly lay asleep

Her soul became the Lord's to keep

No one predicted that night would be when

Her life would succumb to a tragic end

For too many years her father's crime

Was filed away just passing time

Until two Detectives with hearts of gold

Made sure that Kelly's story was told

They travel the country through rain, sleet, and snow

To honor all victims and let families know

Their loved ones are remembered each one in thought

Stays on their mind while Justice is sought

They are dedicated, professional, and very kind

In working to give families some peace of mind

Not knowing the truth is the hardest part

When losing a loved one so close to their heart

They work really hard with nothing to gain

Except to help families to lessen the pain

Between them and families there's a bond they share

It's their way of showing how much they care

By giving hope to families with loved ones lost

And meaning to victim's that paid the ultimate cost



To Pay Tribute To Detective Robert Alexander and Detective Greg Myler; Prosecutor John Thomas (San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department Cold Case Unit); and, Prosecutor John Thomas and Prosecutor Mike Fermin.
