PURCELL, Okla. (AP) – The body of a 10-year-old girl missing for two days was found in a neighbor’s apartment Friday, and the man who lives there has been arrested, authorities said.
Jamie Rose Bolin was reported missing Wednesday night when she didn’t return home. Police waited until Thursday night to issue an Amber Alert because no abduction was witnessed and officials suspected she had run away.
But even a prompt alert “probably wouldn’t have helped us recover Jamie,” said state patrol Lt. Chris West. He offered no further details.
The girl was last seen Wednesday afternoon at the library in Purcell, about 20 miles south of Oklahoma City.
A tip from the FBI, one of several agencies that helped in the search, led authorities to Kevin Ray Underwood’s apartment.
The 26-year-old was arrested. His apartment is near Jamie’s family home, said FBI spokesman Gary Johnson.
Prosecutor Tim Kuykendall called the girl’s death one of the most “heinous and atrocious” crimes he has seen. He said he will file first-degree murder charges Monday and will seek the death penalty.
What really makes me want to retch is that Jamie Rose Bolin disappeared on Wednesday the 12th. While this 10-year-old girl was already more than likely dead this scumbag was blogging about a fossil being found that allegedly bridges the gap between prehuman species. But I guess Darwin never figured on subhuman species like this piece of crap.
Rot in hell scumbag.
