Detroit father, Alex Dorsey, was left in shock after uncovering his 13-year-old daughter was slain by her mother, Mitchelle Blair, 35, and had been stuffed in a freezer along with her 9-year-old half-brother for the past two years.
Dorsey recently shared his grief for his daughter with news reporters at NBC News. He claimed that he hadn't seen his daughter in two years because each time he'd visit her home, Blair would lie and say the teen wasn't home.

He broke down in tears as he stated the following.
"For two years. Every time I asked she said they were never there. She was right there. She was right there.
"Why did she have to die? She didn't do anything wrong to nobody.
"Lord have mercy. She was right there.
"That is why she kept me outside. Said you can't come inside. Why can't I come in? She didn't tell me why."
On March 24, two children – Stoni Blair and her half-brother, Stephen Berry – were found dead in their home stuffed inside of a freezer that sat in their living room. Officials say the children had been dead for the past two years.
When the mother, Blair, was taken into custody, she admitted to slaying the children before stuffing their bodies in a freezer. Blair claimed she killed her children because they had molested a young relative.
Her other children, 17 and 8, knew of the killings but opted to remain silent. They lived in the house with their siblings dead in the freezer and carried on with their lives.
During a press conference, Detroit Police Chief James Craig stated, "While the desire to know what happened in that home is strong, I will ask you to be mindful of the two children who were in that home and are still alive."
Prosecutor Kym Worthy also commented and stated as follows.
"The alleged facts in this case present examples of why we must all be diligent and involved citizens.
"A good way to protect society's children is to be alert and look out for your neighborhood youth, refuse to look the other way, and report what you know when necessary. Even though we are issuing these charges today, this tragic case remains under investigation."
Dorsey – who recently lost his job – may be denied the rights to see his other daughter, 17, who lived in the Blair home. The state claims that he failed to pay $39,000 in child support and that he had abandoned his daughters.
