    Burt was first looked at as a person of interest in the case, but officials in Jo Daviess County, Ill., would not release the nature of his relationship with Hill.

    David Andrew Damm had been sentenced to death on kidnapping and murder charges for hiring a hitman to kill 13-year-old Donnisha Hill to cover up sexual abuse allegations. His sentence was commuted to life in prison when Illinois abolished the death penalty in 2011. On Monday, Damm died at a hospital during a medical furlough from Pontiac Correctional Center. He was 67...

    Authorities said Damm, a used-car salesman, molested Donnisha, an eighth-grader at Logan Middle School who lived near him. After Donnisha’s mother discovered the abuse, Damm hired Bruce Edward Burt to kill the girl while a DNA test was pending, police said. Damm was to pay Burt $5,000 and give him a car.

    Damm met the girl at his shop after school on Oct. 27, 2006, and passed her off to Burt under the guise that they were going to run away to Chicago. While Damm remained in Waterloo, Burt drove Donnisha into Illinois, where he used a maul hammer and a knife to kill her in rural Jo Daviess County.

    So a child molester is about to be busted, so he hires someone to kill his 13-yo victim with a "maul hammer and a knife" to try and save his own skin. And yet the people of Illinois say the death penalty is too harsh a punishment. The blatant selfishness and cruelty that fueled this crime make this guy one of the most deserving of death that I've ever seen. His death would have been infinitely more humane than hers was. So sad.

    Adding links to Donnisha's thread for additional info.

    Donnisha has been remembered at Angels' Park Memorial Island in Evansdale. One of the gazebos was dedicated to her.
