Call in to speak with the host
Alie Berrelez: Berrelez was playing with her baby brother in front of her family's Englewood Apartment Complex when she was kidnapped May 18, 1993. The Police searched the Metro Area for 4 days before Yogi, a bloodhound, led police to the girl's body near Deer Creek Canyon. Alie's body was placed in a duffel bag and dumped into a ravine. Police questioned suspect Nicholas R. Stofer but later released him and cleared of suspicion.
The pain a mother feels when her child is taken and murdered is vast, there is no end to the grief, no matter how much time goes by. Today, Marivel Berrelez speaks for her little girl, she is the voice beyond the grave who seeks justice and answers.
The Alie Foundation, an advocacy group that buys bloodhounds for police departments was created in her honor.
It's good to talk.
