Nine Year Old Jessica is Dead

I believe the living God is very angry about this.

*only one of so much evil*


I hope you have some feelings on this.

It sickens me that people are capable of these things.

I don't think it's our place to project natural human anger onto God.

And we, as humans, have every right to be angry.

Suspect Admits Killing Missing Florida Girl, Police Say
By MIKE BRANOM, AP

HOMOSASSA, Fla. (March 18) - A registered sex offender admitted Friday that he kidnapped and killed a 9-year-old girl who disappeared from her bedroom more than three weeks ago and told police where they could find her body, authorities said.

John Evander Couey, 46, had been arrested Thursday and named a ''person of interest'' in Jessica Lunsford's disappearance. He confessed to authorities after taking a lie-detector test, Citrus County Sheriff Jeff Dawsy said.

''At the end of the polygraph, he said, 'You don't have to tell me the results. I know what they are,''' Dawsy said. ''He apologized to the investigators for wasting their time.''

Authorities cordoned off an area Friday near the home of Couey's half-sister, who lived about 150 yards from the home Jessica shared with her father and grandparents. Dawsy would not comment on what investigators were doing in the area, but said it ''will take hours.'' Police had yet to recover a body.

A sheriff's spokeswoman who answered the phone at the Lunsford home Friday evening said the family declined to make any immediate comment. Jessica's father, Mark Lunsford, has said the family did not know Couey.

Jessica's stepfather, Lonnie Bryant, told The Associated Press by telephone from Ohio that he and the girl's mother, Angela Bryant, planned to come to Florida soon.

''I'm going through agony right now,'' he said.

Jessica, a third grader, was last seen when she went to bed in her home Feb. 23. She was discovered missing the next morning, with the door unlocked and her stuffed animal gone. The clothes she had laid out for school were still in place, and none of her shoes were missing.

More than 100 police and volunteers, with help from bloodhounds and helicopters, searched the area about 60 miles north of Tampa for days following her disappearance. Jessica's family made emotional appeals on national television for her safe return.

Detectives grew interested in Couey while interviewing all registered sex offenders in the area. They tried to contact Couey at his home in Homosassa five days after Jessica disappeared and discovered he no longer lived there.

When investigators followed up with the half-sister, she denied that Couey had lived with her. But another relative confided to a detective that Couey sometimes stayed at the home.

Authorities said Couey left Florida on or about March 4 after telling relatives that police would be looking for him. He was arrested in Augusta, Ga., on a probation violation for failing to notify officials that he was moving, a requirement for sex offenders. He was awaiting extradition to Florida on Friday.

Couey has an extensive criminal record that includes 24 arrests for burglary, carrying a concealed weapon and indecent exposure. In 1991, he was arrested in Kissimmee on a charge of fondling a child under age 16. Records don't show how the case was resolved.

During a house burglary in 1978, Couey was accused of grabbing a girl in her bedroom, placing his hand over her mouth and kissing her, Dawsy said. Couey was sentenced to 10 years in prison but was paroled in 1980.

That's just fucking disgusting. Oh my God.
I hope the worthless little tosspot is publicly hung by the balls. No, actually, hanging's too good for the likes of that. I know it's not right to say this =- but at the moment I'm so fucked up I don't care - but, if he sexually assaulted her, I hope he dies in fucking agony over a very long and excruciating period of time.

Forgive my vindictiveness - I know it's not the way to deal with things - but filthy scum like this should be made to suffer as far as I'm concerned. Die, you worthless bastard.

That kind of hate is counterproductive. I don't care what happens to him as long as he's behind bars for the rest of his life and unable to be a part of society. Other than that, people like him are not worth my energy.
