I am so sorry...

Heartbreaking news.
A 10-year-old Colorado girl reported missing one week ago is dead, police said Friday, spurring a manhunt for the person who killed her.
Westminster Police Chief Lee Birk told reporters that a body found earlier this week "has been positively identified" as that of Jessica Ridgeway.
"Our focus has changed from a search for Jessica to a mission of justice for Jessica," Birk said.
Jessica was last seen by her mother as she left for school October 5. Authorities then issued a statewide Amber Alert for the girl.
On Sunday, a man in a subdivision in Superior discovered Jessica's backpack outside his house about 7 miles from the girl's hometown of Westminster, said Westminster Police Investigator Trevor Materasso. Both towns are along the Denver-Boulder Turnpike.
A body -- which was "not intact," according to police -- was found Wednesday at a park in Arvada, a Denver suburb just five miles from Westminster. The body was identified Friday as that of Jessica. - CNN
O my God, why?   Why?

May the souls of the faithful departed rest in peace.  Amen


  1. The whole community is totally heartbroken and distraught over this. It really is unfathomable how someone could do this to a child.

    God give peace to the parents of this girl who must be in unconsolable agony right now.

    1. I can't understand such things - the poor child. Prayers for the family.
