My heart is so sad today. Look @ this beautiful little girl. I am angry also. What is wrong with the human race? I have raised my children here since birth & hae always loved this community. I am not sure why the Devil has decided to come here, but he needs to be caught & the punishment should be whatever they did to her, did to them.

This is so sad. Was this young girl reported missing? Her family says the last time they saw her was 5:30 p.m. Monday night, when she didn't come home didn't they wonder where she was? The Bee says she lived off of La Riviera, quite a hike for her to come back over to Rosemont Park if she went all the way home after school. Did she walk or did someone drive her over? Lots of unanswered questions.
