ACASIA CHAVIS NEEDED TO HAVE PORTIONS OF HER SKULL REMOVED AFTER SUFFERING SEVERE HEAD TRAUMA AT THE HANDS OF HER MOTHER’S BOYFRIEND – UPDATED 07.01.2014

ACASIA CHAVIS BEATEN SO SEVERELY PORTIONS OF HER SKULL WERE REMOVED

 Acasia Chavis entered this world on April 16, 2007, and for three years she shined her light on all around her.  Acasia was full of energy and curiosity.  She loved to run and play outside at the park, and like most 3 year olds, loved to splash around in the pool.  Sadly though, those 3 years were all we had with this angel gracing our lives.

Acasia was brought to Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus on November 26, 2010 with a head injury.  Four days later she was discharged, but after a short 5 hours, the baby girl was brought back to the hospital suffering seizures and unconsciousness.  Acasia’s mom was giving the little girl a bath when the seizures came on quickly and severely.  The baby girl was taken directly to surgery with a major bleed where they found that her brain had already started to die.  Surgeons needed to remove the left side of Acasia’s skull because the swelling on the brain was so severe, but little could be done by then and Acasia died after suffering significant brain damage consistent with severe abusive head trauma consistent with shaken baby syndrome.

Authorities and hospital staff were not sure if Acasia suffered one head injury and her following death was a result of that injury, or if after being discharged Acasia suffered a second injury all together which sent her back to the hospital clinging to life.

Acasia was allegedly murdered by her mother’s, Whitney Chavis’, boyfriend, Jose Trevino.  Trevino was home alone with Acasia when she received her injuries.  He told authorities and medical staff that Acasia had fallen off the toilet while brushing her teeth, and then fell again while sitting in a child size chair eating.  Trevino said “I heard her fall and she said ‘I hit my head’ but when I went to check on her she was fine.  Children have accidents and sometimes it happens.  She got up like everything was OK.”

I’m not a medical professional – but children DO NOT have accidents that result in such a severe injury from falling off a child sized chair.  Could you imagine if every toddler that fell off a chair, couch, bed and on and on, were hurt so significantly as Acasia was from doing so – the human race would be near if not already extinct.

Trevino was arrested and charged with felonious assault for his role in Acasia’s death.  Now Trevino did also have pending charges for domestic violence and assault from an unrelated incident.  The details of the incident aren’t clear, but at the very least these charges go to show that Trevino did have a history of violence.

Acasia’s mom said that she had trusted Trevino to care of the baby girl, but said that she did not believe that her daughter accidently fell as Trevino claimed.  Chavis stated “I know my daughter.  If she would have fell, she would have cried, that would have drawn my attention to go to whatever room she was in.”  Chavis went on to say “I don’t know what to say because I shouldn’t be having to plan my daughter’s funeral and it kills me.  I left her with him because I never thought in a million years I wouldn’t have her anymore.”

While Chavis seems to have said all the right things, she did nothing to back that up, in fact, she actually remained in a relationship with Trevino despite his murdering her daughter – a daughter that should have been the first priority rather than Trevino being the first priority.  Chavis and Trevino are now expecting their 4th child together, 4 children these two do not deserve, and 4 children I fear for – when will Trevino snap next, and how many victims will fall in his wake this time?

While Chavis did not play a physical role in her daughter’s murder, she failed to protect Acasia, and then when the time came, she lied to keep Trevino out of jail with all charges against him dropped.  She said Trevino was verbally abusive but he never laid hands on her or Acasia – how can anyone even say this as though it somehow makes it better????  How can this woman that dares to call herself a mother make excuses for murdering her daughter????

When Chavis was asked why she stayed with this animal, she actually said “Because I wanted my other daughter to know her father.  Yeah, I loved him.  I did.” – the child being the 3 month old baby girl, Adalai, which Trevino and Chavis had together.  This my friends is why I need to take blood pressure medication to keep my head from exploding – actually listening to people who have the IQ of a potato talk as though what they are saying makes perfectly reasonable sense is driving me crazy!  Trevino is clearly not a good, nor safe care giver for a hamster, to say the least – let alone a father to any child.  And I have to ask – how the hell can she be so sure he won’t hurt another child when he has already murdered one???  Would you allow a dog to attack your child, killing them and then keep the dog in your home with your 3 month old baby – does that make sense, is that a reasonable risk to take? – because that is exactly what happened.

Chavis protected the monster that murdered her innocent little girl, and as far as I am concerned, that makes her guilty in her daughter’s death, and she needs to be held accountable for this.  I can say that, but truth is that NO ONE has been held accountable for Acasia’s murder so far, and in fact she has been effectively brushed to the side as though her life was not worth the effort to do right by her.  NO ONE is having to answer for the life stolen from this baby girl.

I know you all of heard it a million times if you have heard it once from me – BUT I will say it again – IF SOMEONE EVER HURT MY CHILD, I WOULD DO THINGS TO THEM THAT WOULD MAKE CHARLES MANSON LOOK LIKE MOTHER THERESA.  That is not a threat, that is a promise.

Acasia Chavis' First Christmas

Acasia Chavis’ First Christmas

Acasia deserved to have a mother that would have done the same for her – but because she tragically didn’t, it is us who are now tasked with taking care of her, with fighting for justice.  Acasia is a child in this LTWH family, she belongs to each of us now in our own small way, we do not stand for our children being hurt.  We also do not leave our members alone, fighting an overwhelming fight, and feeling like the child they lost does not matter to anyone.  Robin Chavis – Acasia’s grandmother, and her family have been going this alone for some time now.  I wish we could have been here for them sooner, but wishing does nothing to change the past.  What we can do though, is look her and her family in the eye today and say – WE HAVE YOU, we will fight with you, we will be here when you need to cry or scream, you will never be alone in this fight again.  The thing that I love about this family is the loyalty we have – the passion and drive to protect our own.  We make this personal, and then we fight with all we have, and this is one bad ass, take no shit family.  If there is any group capable of advocating for a child – it is LTWH.

When I was speaking with Robin, the pain in her voice is apparent.  You can hear the love that she has for Acasia, and you can hear her heart break – however through it all she remains strong for her family, and Robin, I know you are making that little angel so very proud to be your granddaughter.  Robin shared just how devastating this is to the ones that loved Acasia most saying,

 When a child’s life is taken at the hands of another, it is the most devastating thing. So many questions unanswered. So much pain! Hatred seeps in very quick, your life has changed forever. You will never get over it, you must learn to accept your loved one is gone…because no matter how hard you try, you can’t change it. Celebrate the time and memories you had with them, for nothing or anyone can take that from you.”

When I asked her what she would say to Acasia right now, she gave this message,

“Our hearts still ache with sadness, and tears still flow freely.  We will always miss and love you baby girl.  You live on in our hearts and GOD has you in his keeping.”

The truth is, we will never truly know exactly what happened the day Acasia was fatally beaten, however that should not take away the priority to find justice for this beautiful baby girl.  Acasia was an innocent child without a voice.  We may not have been there to speak for her while she was alive, but we sure as hell are here now, and we can honor and celebrate her life in the way she deserves.

So now it is time to celebrate Acasia – to show the world what a beautiful, sweet, outgoing little girl she was.  When someone hears the name Acasia Chavis let’s make sure that this is how they remember her ….

Acacia Chavis

Acacia Chavis

Acasia, know to her family as Lil Mama or Casia, was a sweet, kind little girl.  Her compassion was far beyond her years, and there was no person she did not console when they were upset, hugging them and telling them everything will be okay.  She was a little princess that had a special place in her heart for Dora The Explorer.  From the cartoons to Dora storybooks to her treasured doll, she loved everything Dora!

Her favorite colors were the brightest ones of all, pink, orange and blue – they reflected her outgoing personality to a tee.  Now when it comes to favorite foods, spaghetti was high on the list – but what Acasia really loved was ice cream!  A smart little girl, that one! 😉

Acasia loved to spend her days outdoors splashing in the pool, picking leaves in the fall and collecting rocks.  The small things made her happy, and that is what really makes Acasia shine, her innocence, wonder and love for all that was around her is what everyone remembers most, it is what made her imperfect perfection.

As every child I know – Christmas was the holiday of choice.  The bright lights, homemade cookies and family gatherings full of laughter are all part of the Christmas miracle that a child loves most.  It was no different for Acasia.

Acasia Chavis and George

A mothering soul, she loved dogs, in particular George, her great aunts dog, and I would say that he loved her just as much as she loved him.  Acasia loved her baby sister and was always there, ready to help take care of 3 month old Adalai in any way she could.  I know that she would have grown to be an incredible mother, but she is now an angel sitting on our shoulders, reminding us to enjoy the small moments, to enjoy our families, because they are all that matters.

Robin saw nothing but beauty in her granddaughter, and that was all there was with Acasia to see, beauty.  From her big brown eyes and curly hair to her contagious laugh, she could melt a heart of stone.  She shared her joy with those she loved, always making them laugh and leaving them with a lingering smile long after she left the room.  Even now, years after her death, she is still bringing smiles to our faces and love to our hearts.

Acasia – we love you sweetheart, and we are making you a promise that we will never stop fighting for you.  I also promise that we will take care of your Grandma and family – we won’t let them be alone and we won’t let them down.  Fly high baby girl, use those wings to spread your love.

  1. This story about José is missing a lot of information. He is a sociopath & diagnosed with bipolar disorder. He finds woman usually much younger then him from different websites & chat lines to take advantage of. Whittney is a victim as well, she’s had a hard life & is weak. Jose has over 13 children all very close in age by multiple women. Whittney is just 1 of 4 in the columbus area. He’s still up to his old ways with 2 profiles on plentyoffish dating website using his middle name Manuel.

  2. The children in the household should be removed and placed in good foster homes. Jose should be castrated and fed to the demons in hell AKA prison. The mother of this child should have her ovaries removed and be put in an institution. She apparently cannot take care of herself and has no common sense. Stupid, pathetic female just can’t live without a man. I hate it when the mothers get too stupid and leave their children with boyfriends. STUPID STUPID STUPID!

  3. OMG i can’t believe she still stayed with that asshole… jesus christ.

  4. So this animal is NOT in prison ???

  5. I swear if i could get my hands on him he’d be dead by now. When i saw her pics i cried, why would you take a life from a precious little girl.she had such a long life ahead of her and the mother like come on he took the life of your child, and to defend him you’d have to be a real sockoh
    Love, so much may u rest in peace he had no right to take ur precious life just know we all love u deeply u have know idea and p.s. i love ice cream to😊love u baby

  6. The fact that the child is pictured next to a pit bull dog, the leading canine killer of humans, speaks volumes of the ignorance of the people involved in this poor child’s life. Rest in peace, little one; I hope you receive the justice you deserve.

  7. Any dog can be made mean by how they are treated. This one looks as if he’d protect her from anyone intending harm or having bad intent..Too bad the dog didn’t ‘take care of matters’ instead of the sorry excuse for a human living his life as if nothing happened! But then, some genius with CPS would probably blame the dog for her injuries instead of the SOB.
    It’s heartbreaking to see all these children with no one to help them in the CPS depts of this country. We are better than this and our children living in the U.S. deserve far more help and love than they get.
    It will never change until those in power listen to the voices of those that elected them to office.
