    AR - Jersey Bridgeman, 6, Bentonville, raped and murdered #1

    Police in Bentonville say a 6-year-old girl reported missing early Tuesday has been found dead.
    Authorities have released few details about the case but say they're investigating the girl's death as a homicide.
    Police Chief Jon Simpson said the girl was reported missing from a home on Southeast A Street at about 6:45 a.m. Tuesday. Police say the child's body was found later Tuesday morning during a neighborhood search.

    lots of pictures at the above link

    After combing the neighborhood, the child's body was found. Police tell KNWA that all available personnel are on hand in this investigation. They say there are "several residents of interest" who are being investigated on the street. Benton County Deputy prosecutor worked with detectives and law enforcement on the scene. Along with the home the child went missing from, at least three other neighboring homes are blocked with police tape.

    Police confirm the 6-year-old was a student in the Bentonville school district

    The Benton County coroner arrived at the house at about 10 a.m., and later was seen going into a home a couple of doors down, according to 5NEWS reporter Allison Woods, who was on the scene.

    An area around three houses was taped off Tuesday morning, and parts of southeast Seventh and A streets were closed. Simpson said no arrests have been made, but that he did not think there was a threat to public safety.

    Simpson said the Child Abduction Response Team, a multiagency group with special training, would help with the investigation.

    I really do seem to be easily confused these days. They say she was found a few blocks from where she disappeared, and they say the body was removed from a home 2 doors down. Was one of the statements wrong or am I reading things wrong?

    I think the media is just getting things "straight" right now as things are developing and it also, looking at the pictures, seems that they are keeping everyone pretty far back from the scene.

    Thanks. I guess there is a tendency to get things messed up in the beginning when they're trying to hurry to get a story out. I suppose it's better than not knowing anything until they're 100% sure of all the facts.

    Yes, things always seem to change as the story develops... that is why a lot of times I will go back and snip the piece of the article that has changed when posting an update..

    I have been looking around trying to see if I can find any articles on when she went missing but cannot seem to find anything... it seems that it happened very quickly re: reported missing and found

    reported missing at 6:45 a.m. Not a lot of details to go on as yet but . . .

    Gonna go out on a limb and guess she went missing while the household slept and was discovered missing when the rest of the household awoke.

    Found within immediate area and a neighborhood home sealed off and coroner's presence makes me think intruder/kidnap by someone who had been eyeing her in the neighborhood.

    Will be watching with interest for more details to come out on this one.

    In re: the media, in particular in NW Arkansas, oy vey. There's not a single "go to" media source there as the newspapers are, to put it charitably, not up to par, and relying on TV journalism is - again charitably - a mixed blessing. I've lived there, and around there, most of my life. Media not their strong suit.

    “We’re working on either search warrants or other metrics to be able to thoroughly inpect those residences,” Simpson said.
    So far no arrests have been made.

    Police confirm the 6-year-old was a student in the Bentonville school district. Neighbors in Bentonville say the girl's family had just moved into the residence on SE A Street just months ago.
