    IL - Mya Lyons, 9, stabbed to death, Chicago, 15 July 2008

    http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,382922,00.html

    A 9-year-old girl was found stabbed to death early Tuesday in a Chicago alley.
    The Cook County, Ill., medical examiner identified the girl found by her father as Mya Lyons. MyFOX Chicago reported that she had been sexually assaulted.
    "We're in mourning right now," Orlando Barnes, the girl's grandfather, told MyFOX Chicago. "We just want to ask that the person or persons that did this heinous crime, 'Come forward and turn yourself in.'" (more at link)

    Richard Lyons said he and other family members discovered she was missing at one point during the night.

    “Everybody was like, ‘where is she?’ We went looking for her and I found her in the alley. They dumped her in the alley,’’ at the end of the block near his home, Richard Lyons said, breaking down.

    A 13-year-old boy whose younger sister frequently played with Mya in the South Side neighborhood told the Chicago Sun-Times that police had taken a sample of his DNA this morning.
    “I didn’t mind,” the boy said. “I didn’t have anything to hide. I want them to find who did it.” The boy said the police came to his home about 9:30 a.m. today.

    Police said a sex offender living in the neighborhood is part of the investigation.

    What a boy! We have (ugg) parents of dead Children that won't take lie detector test to be eliminated so cops can get on to the 'real killers'.

    It was a hideous crime to read first thing this morning. She was a cutie. I hope they find the perp before any other children are hurt.

    ETA: I think I'm about ready to OD on murdered children. There seems to be more this summer and the crimes are particularly gruesome.

    Hopefully it's someone who's DNA is already registered with CODIS.

    I hope they catch the perp and string him from a tree! Ok, LWOP,

    Oh, ITA! I took a little break from all this crime stuff after Brooke Bennett's body was found.....It makes me so sad to think about how we have to share this world with people who can be so cold and heartless as to murder a CHILD.

    I saw the interview with Mya's dad (I think it was her dad) on WGN this morning, and he was saying that they forgive whoever did this to her...I couldn't believe how much class he has.

    It seems like she came from a really nice family who loved her very much. My heart aches for her father. Hopefully he can replace that awful image of his murdered daughter with happy memories. It seems like this could be a random crime. It is encouraging their was evidence left behind.

    Authorities went inside a house across the street, which the Illinois State Police sex offender Web site lists as the home of a non-compliant convicted child sex offender. But police say they do not have any suspects in custody.
