A TODDLER is believed to have bled to death from a cut in her head after allegedly being battered by her dad, police say.

Three-year-old Olivia Ann Jansen reportedly lived in fear of her father, Howard Jansen III - who has a tattoo of the girl's name on his forehead.

The dad was booked as the prime suspect after he reported her missing only for her body to be found hours later in a shallow grave in woods in Kansas City.

Now Jansen has been charged with felony murder in the first degree in his daughter's death, and he and his girlfriend, Jacqulyn Kirkpatrick, are both charged with aggravated child endangerment and desecrating a dead body, according to court documents obtained by KMBC News.

Hours after an Amber Alert was issued on July 10 to warn residents of Olivia's disappearance, police found her body in a shallow grave in a wooded area after receiving a tip of a suspicious man in the woods.

"This is not the outcome we wanted, in fact it is the worst outcome," the Kansas City Kansas Police Department said in a statement at the time.

The child was severely injured in a way that showed clear signs of physical abuse, according to a police affidavit supporting an application for an arrest warrant obtained by KMBC News.

Olivia's arms, legs and face were bruised and she had severe bleeding from her brain, which the medical examiner determined as the cause of death, the affidavit said.

Olivia's grandparents had been worried about the toddler's well-being and described their son as a "drug addict." They said they saw Olivia in March for the last time before she died.

The Kansas City Department of Children and Families (DCF) said it had received reports of Jansen abusing his daughter as early as February 28, 2020.

But the unnamed person who reported the abuse changed their story, DCF said.

"After thorough assessment and discussion, no services were offered. The assigned reports were unsubstantiated, and case was closed."

Little People’s Audrey Roloff called out for misspelling city name in Idaho during family getaway

Audrey, 29, wrote: "Landed at Couer d'alane Idaho last night and we're trying to get out on the lake today or tomorrow [sic]."

She filmed herself with her husband Jeremy and their two children, Ember and Bode.

The reality star shared a screenshot of a DM from a follower, who told her: "I'm sure the locals are all DMing you about the spelling errors. CDA is much easier."

Audrey replied, "Thank you for the grace," alongside an "Oops" GIF.

Audrey and Jeremy headed off to Spokane to visit his sister, Molly, and her husband, Joel, last week.

The couple told fans they were "excited" to see Molly - who also no longer appears on the show.

"Today we are getting ready to leave for a two week camping trip  up through Washington, Idaho, and Montana!," Audrey wrote.

She revealed details of the trip, writing: "We are super excited to visit Jeremy’s sister Molly and her husband Joel up in Spokane, and then explore some of the epic lakes in Idaho and Montana!"

Molly also left the show when she moved out of state, and left Zach as the only sibling still appearing on it.

Audrey and Jeremy's brother Jacob have been vocal about their differences, with the feud erupting online in June.

Jacob - a self-described “agnostic” - has clashed with his Christian sister-in-law and older sibling over their conservative views since their marriage in 2014.

Jacob, 23, has vocally supported liberal policies such as the legalization of marijuana, racial injustice and gun control since he was a teenager.

He recently unfollowed Audreyafter he slammed her Black Lives Matter post.

Responding to the ongoing protests due to George Floyd’s death in May, Audrey reposted her brother's video about unity to her Instagram Stories.

Jacob - who has attended multiple protests with his wife - called the video "police propaganda” and emphasized it was “not activism.”

Jacob appeared to have once again slammed his brother and sister-in-law’s apparent support for Trump this month.

On June 1, he tweeted: “I, too, am embarrassed to be related to Trump voters.”
