Missing Ind. girl found dead, babysitter charged - Yahoo! News
This is really sad for all those involved and I started paying attention after hearing some of the details in the case. First and foremost, there is the issue of why a grown man was watching a bunch of little girls. Though it isn't an issue for men to watch girls, it's an issue for a sex offender with a smoking habit to leave with little girls for any amount of period. Jesus, he was left with them so long that he had to go out for a smoke break. Once I got past that I also realized that there are FIFTEEN sex offenders living in 2 dozen homes. That's 1.25 offenders PER home. Once I got past the initial shock of the amount of sex offenders living in the park, there is the issue that at no point during the day do either the baby sitter or parent contact each other to find out where this kid is. Doesn't that seem slightly off? Overall a REALLY sketchy situation.FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) — A missing 9-year-old Indiana girl has been found dead, and the neighbor who was watching her before she disappeared was arrested on a murder charge Monday night, authorities said.
The body of Aliahna Lemmon was found in northeast Indiana's Allen County, where her family lived in a mobile home park, but investigators aren't saying where the remains were found, sheriff's spokesman Cpl. Jeremy Tinkel said.
Mike Plumadore, who told local media that Aliahna went missing sometime Friday as he watched her and her sisters, was taken into custody late Monday after being interviewed by police, Tinkel said. He said the 39-year-old was facing a murder charge.
"He was a trusted family friend," Aliahna's step-grandfather, David Story, told The Associated Press late Monday, saying he was surprised by Plumadore's arrest.
