The Death of Nyia Page by Justin Merriman

Darlene Scott, 33, weeps as she talks about the loss of her 23-month-old daughter, Nyia, at her home on Feb. 25, 2018, in Duquesne, Pa. 

Nyia's body was found frozen to the ground in an abandoned playground in Rankin on Feb. 4, 2007, a day after her parents reported her missing. Police found her footprints in the snow near where they found her body. Her father, William Page, was found guilty of sexually assaulting her and leaving her to die. He was sentenced to life in prison. Nyia's death is still felt throughout the communities of Rankin and Braddock. To read more about Nyia's story visit the Post-Gazette.
