    OH - Reann Murphy, 9, Smithville-Wayne County, 14 December 2013

    I didn't see a thread for this little girl. Her body was found in a dumpster early this morning. Poor baby!

    Hope I did this right, I've never created a Thread on here before. If not, I'm sure someone will come along and fix it soon.

    I'm so absolutely sad over this. Smithville is only about 30 minutes from me. It's a very rural town. I'm glad they located her so quickly.

    who could do this to such a lovely little one? Why? It's the cases of young children that so hurt my heart. I ache for her, reading this has sent me into a turmoil of tears. I think it's from the shooting on Friday. Although I tried so hard not to bawl my eyes out; I did and then yesterday as well I burst into tears several times, just thinking about how the families are all coping. what kind of society are we when we throw our children in the trash?

    It is a small park by the looks of the satellite image. That should narrow down the suspect pool considerably. Lets hope the person who did this will be apprehended quickly.

    Jumping off your post...

    I wonder what would make a killer choose to place a body in a dumpster... Rather than hide it further from her home by burying her in the vast landscape surrounding her home?

    in other words... What would be a profile of this killer?

    would the dumpster be a choice due to lack of time it takes to bury the body in the surrounding fields?

    or...???

    Just some thoughts...

    Looks like shared area is in the middle with access by all mobile homes on a cul-de-sac type road. Is that dumpsters on the backside by the fields?

    Questions I hope to have answered soon... (Aside from the POS that killed her, of course...)

    who was the last person that saw her.. (approx. 5:30 p.m. Sat. - 12-14-13)

    was she playing with others... Or alone?

    Well, I am certainly no profiler, but it seems to me this shows a few things; first that the killer had no emotional attachment to the victim and wanted to just dump the body quickly, second, this wasn't planned by the killer but more likely opportunity and lack of self control, and last I think that the killer will be younger with no access to a vehicle or a private residence (of course it could also be an adult without access to these things as well).

    Did it take five hours to find her body?
