Update on Sommer

Body found. They are not yet saying if it's Somer, but it was in the landfill to which garbage from Somer's neighbourhood is taken. As far as I know, there are no other reports of missing children in that area, so the probability is high that it is her.

This is sickening!

ETA: Body Tentatively Identified

"Sheriff Rick Beseler said Thursday that the identification was based on clothing on the body and a birthmark that matched the girl's."

In the absence of another missing child in the area, it's likely that this child is Somer.

My heart and thoughts are with her family...


  1. So scary. Someone was obviously stalking the kids walking home. Just waiting for one to be alone.

    I saw that the other day on the way home from my doctor, all the kids walking home, most in groups. I noticed the little boy that was walking alone and it struck fear in my heart. And it was just so benign. Why we automatically go there in our heads now.

  2. It's sickening to even have to think that way. These monsters take so much from our kids.

  3. AOL news reporting the body found IS Somer - so very sad and disheartening! 161 sex offenders within a 5 mile radius of her home.
    That number is just the known offenders. What can be done to protect everyone from them?

  4. Shoot the fuckers!

    (did I say that?)

    Seriously, we need to lobby judges for maximum sentences, and lobby legislators for tougher penalties.

    I am tired of children becoming prisoners so these guys can run free.
