    Sheriff's Office Detailed Timeline

    Detailed timeline here:
    http://jacksonville.com/news/crime/2...events-cherish

    and here
    http://www.actionnewsjax.com/content...f66g01B9w.cspx


    The first link has the greatest detail, the second is more summarized and is what I called out the highlights from.
    I've called out *highlights* so thie quoted timeline is not the full timeline (I removed some of the internal JSO times, for example) but these are is VERY lengthy and thorough.

    Both cover the time only after JSO was called in.



    11:18 p.m.: Dispatch received a call from Cherish's mother that her daughter was abducted
    11:28 p.m.: First two officers arrive on scene
    12:05 a.m.: Homicide investigators notified and asked to respond to the scene by dispatch. Homicide sergeant makes contact with patrol supervisor and is advised that the surveillance footage has been reviewed and verified that the victim had left with the suspect in a white van
    In the minutes before and after midnight, police issued BOLOs to Clay, Nassau and Baker counties.
    At 12:27 a.m., police sent an emergency assistance and response services broadcast, known as an EARS, to the news media.
    At 2:40 a.m., Cherish's information is entered into the National Crime Information Center and Florida Crime Information Center as an endangered missing juvenile.

    Police identified the suspect as Donald J. Smith, a registered sex offender at 3:30 a.m. Police also learned the suspect's mother owns a white Dodge 1998 van.

    Ten minutes later, police showed Smith's picture to Cherish's mother. She identified him as the suspect.
    At 3:45 a.m., FDLE reviews the Amber Alert script with a JSO homicide sergeant. The script is updated with new information on the suspect and the vehicle.

    Five minutes later, police respond to Smith's home to search for the victim. Shortly after, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children contacts JSO dispatch to get information on the incident.

    At 4:05 a.m., the final script for the Amber Alert is reviewed.

    The Amber Alert is received via NCIC/FCIC at 4:21 a.m.

    At 8:34, police received a call from a woman who said she saw a suspicious van at the Highlands Baptist Church at around 7 a.m.

    Twenty minutes later, a police officer saw the van on Interstate 95 near the Interstate 10 split.

    At 9:05 a.m., police stopped the van on the interstate. Police arrested Smith. Cherish is nowhere to be found.
    At 9:20 a.m., police and K-9 officers find Cherish's body behind a church.

    NOTE: information summarized in the dispatch log is more detailed that what came out early on in most local news reports.

    Another contact with Smith:

    http://www.actionnewsjax.com/content...FvLuD67PA.cspx

    Hasty lives in Blountstown, but came face to face with Donald Smith, a few years ago. It was a run-in, he says, that he'll never forget.

    Hasty and Smith both have children with the same woman. Hasty took his daughter to Smith's mother's home in Jacksonville, to let her visit with Smith's son, which is the girl's half-brother.

    Smith was gone during Hasty's first two visits, but on the third, the two men met for the first time.

    Their encounter lasted only a few hours, Hasty says he was immediately uncomfortable with the idea of leaving his daughter alone with Smith.

    "Every time I caught him in some vicinity of my daughter he was looking at her, and she was only 2 and a half or 3 years old at the time. It bothered me. When you look at somebody you would normally act like 'hey, how's it going,' but when you're constantly staring at something when someone's trying to talk to you, you can see their mind is set on something," Hasty said.

    Hasty, never took his daughter back for another visit. It wasn't until months later that he learned Smith was convicted sexual offender.

    More on Smith

    Another article summarizes the Times-Union's (Jacksonville.com) research :
    The Florida Times Union (http://bit.ly/18qLHui) says accounts from the Smith's childhood and adult acquaintances, neighbors and hundreds of pages of court records paint a picture of the career criminal as a young bully and a sexual deviant from at least his early 20s, as well as a lifelong charmer.

    Authorities rejected a plea of insanity in one of his early criminal cases after a psychiatric exam.

    Smith spent 1999 to 2002 under involuntary civil commitment after meeting the criteria of a violent sexual predator as part of the state's Jimmy Ryce Act.

    Some info in the Jimmy Ryce law:

    http://missingchildprevention.wordpr...immy-ryce-act/
    The Florida Legislature passed the Jimmy Ryce Involuntary Civil Commitment for Sexually Violent Predators’ Treatment And Care Act. (Jimmy Ryce Act) on May 1, 1998. The Act directs the Secretary of Children and Family Services to create a multidisciplinary team that will determine whether an inmate is a “sexually violent predator.”
    The only statutory guideline for the team’s composition is that it must include “two licensed psychiatrists or psychologists, or one licensed psychiatrist and one licensed psychologist.” One hundred and eighty days prior to releasing an inmate convicted of a sexually violent crime, the agency controlling the inmate must notify both the multidisciplinary team and the relevant state attorney of the inmate’s impending release. The team then determines whether the inmate is a “sexually violent predator.”


    A “sexually violent predator” is defined as “any person who:
    • (a) Has been convicted of a sexually violent offense; and
    • (b) Suffers from a mental abnormality or personality disorder that makes the person likely to engage in acts of sexual violence if not confined in a secure facility for long-term control, care, and treatment.”
    https://www.floridabar.org/__85256AA...5?OpenDocument

    http://www.moorecriminaldefense.com/...y-2090965.html :
    The Jimmy Ryce Involuntary Civil Commitment for Sexually Violent Predators' Treatment and Care Act, provides a civil commitment procedure for the long term treatment of sexually violent predators. The Act was created so that a person classified as a sexually violent predator may be involuntarily committed to the Department of Children and Families (DCF) for treatment until the person's mental abnormality or personality disorder has changed and the person is safe to be at large.

    Another interview w/RP, focusing on Smith and the murder, posted 7/1:
    http://www.firstcoastnews.com/news/l...storyid=318425

    "He hid her so well, no one would have ever found her," Perrywinkle told First Coast News. When asked if Cherish was buried, Perrywinkle responded, "Yes."

    JSO will not comment on how the body was discovered or confirm if it was, indeed, buried out in the woods behind the church on Broward Road. A tipster originally led police to that scene. Someone called and said a suspicious van had been parked there earlier that Saturday morning.

    Smith indicted by Grand Jury

    Smith indicted by grand Jury today:
    http://www.news4jax.com/news/donald-...z/-/index.html

    Donald Smith, the man accused of abducting and killing 8-year-old Cherish Perrywinkle last month, was indicted Tuesday on charges of first-degree murder, kidnapping and capital sexual battery.

    In announcing the indictment, State Attorney Angela Corey and Assistant State Attorney Mark Caliel said the cause of Cherish's death was strangulation. They said she was raped before being killed.

    Prosecutors said they have decided to pursue the death penalty in this case. Smith will be arraigned July 16.
    More here:
    http://jacksonville.com/news/crime/2...sexual-battery

    and here:
    http://www.actionnewsjax.com/content...D6h-cbZXw.cspx
    "We received a three-count indictment for murder in the first degree, kidnapping a child under the age of 13, and sexual battery under the age of 12," said prosecutor, Mark Caliel.
    another quote from that article:
    We found out premeditation is applicable in Smith's case, but there's still one key piece of evidence investigators still haven't found. Cherish's mother Rayne says her stroller was in Smith's van while they were inside the Walmart, but not when he was arrested.

    "It could lead us to add evidence that would be important in this case. There may be a secondary crime scene that we need to investigate," said Caliel.

    The stroller is a blue, tandem, Graco model with plaid print. It can been seen being pushed by a woman in a grainy picture that police say is a still shot taken from surveillance video inside the Dollar General store where Cherish Perrywinkle's mother, Rayne, first met Smith Friday evening. A friend of the family confirms to Action News that it is in fact Rayne Perrywinkle in the picture.

    Ex-inmate says Donald Smith told fellow prisoners he was in for drug charges

    Smith has the sense to have lied about his crimes while in the general population during his last stay:

    At the end of May, Smith had just finished serving a 14-month sentence on a misdemeanor charge of attempted kidnapping of another child. While serving that sentence, Smith apparently conned his fellow inmates into thinking he was someone he wasn't.
    The former inmate serving time from grand theft says Smith told the other prisoners he was in for drug charges, but because he didn't want them knowing what he was really convicted of. Child sex abusers are sometimes dealt with harshly in jail.
