There is a really sad story out of Georgia about a little girl who was found murdered in a dumpster.
She was stabbed;beaten; sexually assaulted; and thrown in the dumpster like a piece of trash. Just awful.
And now we have an alleged killer. Dude worked in the apartment complex where the little girl lives, and he is only 20 years old.
"We believe that this horrendous crime was planned and calculated," Vernon Keenan, the director of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, told reporters.
One resident said she told investigators about a recent conversation she had with Brunn, who mentioned that someone could break into one of the many vacant apartments in the complex and harm a child.
Jorelys was abducted "in the immediate vicinity" of the apartment complex's playground, then taken to an empty apartment nearby, Keenan said.
"We have evidence that the murder occurred in that vacant apartment," he said. "At some point, the child's body was then disposed of in the Dumpster and compacted into trash."
Authorities have said Jorelys died of blunt force trauma to the head, was stabbed and had been sexually assaulted.
Earlier, Keenan said investigators had found blood in an empty apartment.
Brunn's adopted brother told CNN affiliate WXIA that the arrest was a "big mistake," and said investigators should have focused on the complex's other maintenance workers.
"I honestly think he is innocent. There's just no way he would do something like this. He's just a kindhearted person," Connor Brunn told WXIA. "[Story]
Yes Connor, I am sure he is. I bet he even had a dog when he was growing up.*shaking head*
But let's not stop in Georgia. Let's go to Motown where yet another poor innocent child was murdered [in pic]by someone masquerading as a human being this past summer:
"A young girl was fatally strangled before being burned "beyond recognition" in a Detroit building, a medical examiner's report released Monday found.
An autopsy conducted by the Wayne County medical examiner's office on Monday morning -- a day after the body was found in a vacant residence -- determined that the girl died by "asphyxia homicide," said Dennis Niemiec, a spokesman for the office.
Her skull had been crushed and she'd been significantly burned, but both happened after she was killed, he said.
"Any time a child is found dead, it's devastating," Niemiec said Monday afternoon. "You don't get used to it."
The medical examiner concluded that she was a 5- to 7-year-old girl, but has not identified her by name.
The girl's body is "beyond recognition," making it unrealistic that she could be identified by a relative or loved one, the spokesman added.
Detroit Police Officer Dan Donakowski said police are investigating this girl's death as a homicide." [Story]
Sick, just sick.
What's the name of that new planet they just found? Oh yeah, Kepler-22b.
I think I am ready to go.
