Maddy Child Angel of Santa Cruz (MCASC)
was established by family and friends
to give meaning to the death of 8-year old
Maddy Middleton,
who was lured, raped and murdered
by a teenage neighbor acquaintance.




The group's mission is to
help prevent child abduction, abuse and violence
by predators known by the potential victim.
We work to raise awareness and provide education
to children, families and communities
beyond "stranger danger" to encompass
"before you go, let someone know..."

MCASC Treasurer Maddy’s paternal grandmother Judy (Nana) Middleton is Maddy’s paternal grandmother. Judy feels that a statue in a park setting would be beneficial to her family and the community, who took such an interest in locating Maddy and mourned her loss. What better place than a park or someplace similar for families to share with their children about such an Angel who watches over Santa Cruz’s children and a reminder for children to always “Let someone know before you go.”
