DETROIT, Mich. -- The father of one of the children found dead in their mother's freezer is speaking out.

Alex Dorsey said he didn't understand why Mitchelle Blair suddenly stopped letting him take his two daughters for visits two years ago, until this week.

"Two years," Dorsey said. "Every time I asked she was never there."

That's when police found one of their two daughters and Blair's son dead in a freezer in her apartment.

Blair allegedly confessed to killing her son Stephen in 2012 and their daughter Stoni in 2013.

Dorsey said Blair would tell him Stoni, who would have been 15 now, wasn't home.

He would then talk to his oldest daughter, who is now 17, at the door.

Dorsey last came to Blair's porch, which has now turned into a makeshift memorial, about seven months ago.

Dorsey said he was paying child support until he lost his job. Now, the state is trying to take away his rights to his 17-year-old daughter.

A petition says he abandoned his girls, failed to take legal action to obtain parenting time and owes $39,000 in child support.
