Lone Supporter Turns Out for Daisy Coleman Rally

Daisy Coleman supporters planned another rally, wanting justice for the Maryville teen. However, only one supporter showed up.
(MARYVILLE, Mo.)   A group of Daisy Coleman supports were planning to rally in front of the Nodaway County Courthouse on Saturday.
 
Instead, it turned into a waiting game for a Kansas City resident.

Earlier this year, Matthew Barnett, the man accused of sexually assaulting Coleman, pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of endangering the welfare of a child.

That outcome forced the group, Operation Nodaway, to protest until they felt justice was served.

However, around 11 a.m., when the rally was supposed to start, only one supporter was there.

"This is disappointing. This is really disappointing. But, I can see on the web that a lot of people care. If they live in other countries, or far away, they obviously can't come. But, they still follow the case and they still read about it," said Vania Todorova, Daisy Coleman supporter.

Organizers told KQ2 they were busy with work to properly plan the event.

They rescheduled the rally for Sunday, April 27 at 1:30 p.m.
