You don’t here from me a whole lot around here. For those of you who don’t know me, my name is Jade Crowe, aka Mrs. Trench Reynolds. As you can imagine, I read a lot of horrible things that get posted on his websites. And some that don’t make it on there. Like the murder of Somer Thompson.
Probably like most of America, I had never heard Somer’s name until yesterday when her body was found. In a garbage dump. Thrown away like last week’s trash. I know the media in Florida covered the case, but the national media doesn’t get involved until a body is found. They can’t cover them all.
I’m not exactly sure why this case has hit me so hard. Any time I hear about a child abduction or murder of course it bothers me, but there’s something about Somer’s murder that knocked me for a loop. It could be because she looked like a little girl I used to babysit. It could be that I finally read one too many “child found in dump” stories. Whatever the cause, my heart is broken. For Somer herself, for her family – including her twin brother – and especially for her parents. As a mother myself I can’t begin to imagine what they’re going through.
I know Trench has a fair amount of Florida and Georgia readers. Please keep your eyes and ears open. Sooner or later someone will slip up. My personal preference is that when this monster is caught, he/she dies a slow, un-Godly painful death. Unfortunately I understand vigilante justice is frowned upon, although I don’t think a jury in the world would convict. I would settle for letting the legal system handle it, if I really have to.
Help Somer’s family find some peace. Help bring justice for Somer. Anyone who knows anything, please call the tip line at (877) 227-6911. Someone between Orange Park, FL and Folkston, GA either knows or suspects something. If you don’t want to get directly involved, contact me through Trench and I will pass along the information.
