Kevin and Melissa Fox released a statement one day after a convicted sex offender was charged in their daughter's murder. Riley Fox, 3, was killed in 2004.

On Thursday Scott Eby, 38, was charged with sexually assaulting and murdering the child.

"We want to express our gratitude to all of you who stood by us when we lost our precious daughter Riley," the Foxes said. "During our darkest hours? you gave us comfort and courage to carry on."
