    FYI... I posted this on the link from the last thread before it was closed in reference to JH's name being brought up w/ Haleigh's case

    k... i posted on Somer's thread talking bout the name being brought up in Haleigh's case. The guy, in my opinion, is NOT connected to this case but I did read a "chirp" by someone close to Haleigh's case that mentioned JH's name being given to them to check "into"... his background info was on the chirp and it named his vehicles and past residences. my ONLY reason for bringing this "chirp" up is cuz that meant LE or SOMEBODY thought the guy needed to be looked at. This was MONTHS ago... not last week. So JH'S name was well known to LE and others involved in missing child cases in the area... Know what I mean ?

    The Clay County Sheriff's Office was made aware of possible child pornography on a computer owned by Jarred Harrell, 24, on August 10th. By September 25th, the Attorney General's Cyber Crimes unit had the computer to assist in forensic analysis.

    A spokesperson for the Attorney General says that work began on October 9th and was completed November 12th.

    Seven-year-old Somer Thompson was last seen walking home from Grove Park Elementary School October 19th.
    "If it turns out that this individual is in any way responsible for Somer Thompson's death, and it's premature to make that assumption at this point," Rubin says, "it is obviously an egregious situation and one that might have been avoidable."

    Can someone give me any rational explanation for this?

    LE has all of this info on JH. Child porn, lives on Gano, but YET he is able to drive to Mississippi and live there for a couple of weeks?

    Didn't they have him under surveillance? Why not? He can drive to another state and perhaps kill children there? This makes NO SENSE. None!

    Did he move prior to LE completing all the forensics on his computer? And it would seem they did keep tabs on him as they found him right away?

    Makes sense if he was being investigated for child porn (and considering the type that was found on his computer).

Anyone who had access to that computer was suspect to having put it on there. Not only did they have to examine the hard drive, they had to get warrants for information from internet providers to see when the computer was logged into the internet. Warrants would have to be sent out to specific websites to see when that IP address visited those sites. If he was receiving these pictures from someone else via email, they would have to trace that email and IP and try to connect to the person distributing it (with possible arrests in a child porn ring).

    At the time this computer was taken into custody, I'm sure they were more concerned with who was distributing it than they were with who was receiving it and it probably became a bigger part of their investigation into the computer.

    In November investigators gave out a profile of the person that could be involved in Somer's disappearance. I think they were looking at the current POI at this time and trying to freak him out. One of the things they said is that the person might move....if they were playing reverse psychology with this guy, they didn't figure he would move right away after hearing that because he wouldn't want to make himself look suspect. I believe when investigators went quiet and the media coverage started tapering off, the POI got nervous because he didn't know what was going on in the case and he fled to Mississippi.

    In the meantime, officials knew where he was and they were just playing a waiting game to get enough evidence back to make the connection. It does take some time to put together a solid case and we know they don't want to mess this investigation up.
    This is a great insightful post by a member who works in law enforcement (another post says that). I find it answers questions as to why this guy wasn't arrested earlier - anybody could have put the kiddie porn on his computer and this case needs to be solid. moo

    In another post Angleena told us she/he works in law enforcement.

    I'm not talking about arresting him. I am talking about that LE had all of this info about JH and he is able to go to Mississippi. He is a free agent to do as he pleases, which means that he could kill other children on the way.

    This is what makes no sense to me.

    I understand the legal process. I don't understand why when LE could have reason to believe that he sounds extremely hinky, that they allowed him free reign to go where he wants.

    Does anyone think it would be impossible to get a court order to keep tabs on this guy with a reason to believe type of evidence given to a judge?

    Person of interest in Somer Thompson case

    Jarred Mitchell Harrell, 24, lived in the area where Somer Thompson is believed to have been abducted on Oct. 19 as she was walking home from school.

    Authorities are searching two homes in Lauderdale County, Mississippi and in Calahan, Florida, respectively. A search conducted on Thursday morning at 1152 Gano Avenue in Orange Park, where Harrell formerly resided, has already yielded evidence which led authorities to name him as a person of interest in the case. Harrell is being held on a $1 million bond.

    Thompson was last spotted in front of 1080 Gano Avenue, just a few blocks from her home ( see map in article link ).

    According to Harrell's arrest report, in August he was kicked out of an Orange Park apartment after a roommate thought he had stolen a cell phone.

    Harrell left behind a computer, and the roommates said they searched it because they thought Harrell had been using it to look at child porn, the report says. The roommates said they did find porn involving young girls and turned the computer and discs over to the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office on Aug. 10. The materials were sent to state investigators, who confirmed the contents.

    It is unknown when Harrell moved into the Orange Park house that was searched Thursday, or when he left the neighborhood.

    After the news conference, Thompson's attorney, Michael R. Freed, released a statement that said Thompson and her family are "monitoring the latest developments in the investigation." The statement said that she was not prepared to speak publicly about the case Thursday.

    Clay County Sheriff Rick Beseler said Jarred Mitchell Harrell, 24, who had lived in the girl's neighborhood was arrested in Mississippi Thursday on 29 charges of possession of child pornography. Harrell has not been charged in the death of 7-year-old Somer Thompson. Officials at the Lauderdale County Detention Facility in Mississippi said they didn't know if he has a lawyer.

    Harrell, who was arrested in Meridian, Miss., had lived until recently in a home near Somer Thompson's. Authorities searched that house Thursday. Deputies and an FBI forensics team were seen searching its front yard with rakes and shovels.

    Beseler, who announced the arrest during an evening news conference, said a vehicle had also been searched.

    According to Harrell's arrest report, in August he was kicked out of an Orange Park apartment after a roommate thought he had stolen a cell phone. Harrell left behind a computer, and the roommates said they searched it because they thought Harrell had been using it to look at child porn, the report says.

    Clay County Sheriff Rick Beseler said a 24-year-old man has been arrested on child pornography charges and named a person of interest in the Somer Thompson case. Beseler said Jarred Harrell has been charged with 29 counts of possession of child pornography that occurred in Clay County, and he was arrested Thursday by federal agents in Meridian, Miss., and is being held on $1 million bond.

    According to documents released by the Clay County Sheriff's Office, Harrell possessed child pornography on his computer at a Wells Road apartment complex. Harrell was asked to move out of his residence in August after his roommates found out that he stole from them, according to an arrest warrant. He left the residence, leaving his computer and a box of CDs behind, according to the warrant.

    While Harrell was gone, the roommates searched the computer after they had been told Harrell had been caught looking at child porn, according to the warrant. They opened the images and found a nude white girl between the age of 6 and 8, and the computer was turned over to the sheriff's office on Aug. 10, according to the warrant. Harrell moved into the home on Gano Avenue between that time and December, when neighbors said he moved out.

    According to the arrest warrant, the computer was processed by the attorney general's office, and that's when five movies and 24 child pornographic images were found showing children as old as 10 and 13 years old.

    Man Named Person Of Interest In Somer Thompson Murder
    Friday, February 12, 2010 12:33:09 AM
    <snipped>
    The Clay County Sheriff's Office is being very tightlipped on how exactly the man could be connected with the case. However, they said Jarred Harrell, 24, is a person of interest in Thompson's murder.

    According to officials, Harrell recently lived near where Somer was last seen.

    He was arrested Thursday in Meridian, Miss.

    "Investigators at the Clay County Sheriff's Office, the FBI and the FDLE conducted a search for evidence in which a suspect has been arrested and charged with 29 counts of possession of child pornography that occurred in Clay County recently," said Clay County Sheriff Rick Beseler.

    Several other homes in Florida and Mississippi were searched, including a car. Because this is an ongoing investigation, Beseler said he couldn’t comment any more on how Harrell could be connected with Thompson’s murder.

    Former Roommate Found Child Porn On Man's Orange Park Computer

    Police said Jarred Harrell, 24, was arrested by federal agents in Meridian, Miss., on 29 counts of possession of child pornography. Police said he is also a person of interest in Somer's disappearance and death.

    Beseler did say that, until recently, Harrell lived in a home near the slain girl's.

    A man who said he used to live with Harrell at an Orange Park apartment told police he had found nude pictures of children between 9 and 13 years old on Harrell's computer. "I hope he gets what he deserves," said the man, who only wanted to be identified as Matt. "That's really all I have to say about it."

    He said that when he saw the files on Harrell's computer, he "was about to vomit all over, honestly." Matt described Harrell as a "sneaky" person, capable of putting up a "good front."


    Other residents said they did not believe Harrell was capable of murder. "In my heart, no," said one woman. "His parents are my godparents. That's all I can say."

    On Thursday afternoon, a search warrant was issued on a vacant house in the 1100 block of Gano Avenue near where Somer was last seen before she disappeared and was found killed in October. Beseler said Harrell previously lived at the home. Beseler said other residences in Callahan and Lauderdale County, Miss., and a vehicle have also been searched in connection with the case.

    According to documents released by the Clay County Sheriff's Office, Harrell possessed child pornography on his computer at a Wells Road apartment complex. Harrell was asked to move out of his residence in August after his roommates found out that he stole from them, according to an arrest warrant.

    Police Arrest 'Person of Interest' in Somer Thompson Case

    Updated: 2/11/2010 11:34:03 PM

    In a news conference this evening, Sheriff Rick Beseler said they have arrested a person of interest in the Somer Thompson case. They say he is a former resident of the home on Gano Ave., which authorities searched this afternoon and into the evening. Jarred Harrell, 24, was arrested by federal agents today in Meridian, Mississippi on 29 counts of child pornography. Authorities said the crimes occurred in Clay County.

    Sheriff Rick Beseler said Harrell is a registered sex offender. His MySpace page identifies him as a former city of Jacksonville employee in the IT Department.

    Authorities in Mississippi said he is currently working at the Queens City Recycling plant. U.S. Marshals tracked Harrell to a home on 22nd Avenue Heights in Meridian, Miss. where he was arrested without incident.

    The Clay County Sheriff's Office said Harrell is a former resident of a home on Gano Ave. in Orange Park. A search warrant was served at the home, which is just one block west from where Somer Thompson was last seen. Searches also took place at locations in Callahan, Florida and Lauderdale County, Mississippi.

    Authorities searched inside and outside the home at 1152 Gano Ave. A table was set up with brown paper bags to collect evidence. It's unclear if any resident is or was inside the home.

    Somer's father, Sam, spoke to First Coast News this evening: "You can never be prepared for this. We are praying for everyone involved in the investigation. God will lead them to the truth in this matter. There will be justice for Somer. The needless taking of her life has impacted us so much. We've been waiting so long and it is terrible, really. You can't really move on, but I also don't ever want to move on. It's not finished. There is nothing that can bring total closure to this."

    Person of Interest in Somer Thompson Case
    Person of Interest Jarred Harrell, 24, Arrested on 29 Child Porn Charges, Lived Near Thompson

    Posted: Thursday, 11 February 2010 10:23PM

    Police have arrested a former neighbor of Somer Thompson, the 7-year old girl whose body was found in landfill last fall, and named him a person of interest in the girl's disappearance and murder, investigators said today.

    Diena Thompson's Advice for Parents
    It is a struggle to balance that anger with a mother's need to stay strong for her remaining children. Thompson said the ordeal has been especially hard on Somer's twin, Samuel. They used to play in the pool together and race each other to see who could stay underwater the longest.

    "We used to nickname her 'Grace' because she couldn't really walk and chew bubblegum at the same time," Thompson said of Somer. She loved to dance, but she had no rhythm, Thompson said.

    "She was just so wonderful. And you take it for granted. You never think you're gonna be sitting here," Thompson said. "And you have a lot of regret because you may have been too busy. And you weren't really busy. You were just too busy in your head. And I'll have to live with that, and that's hard."

    She said she would tell other parents to be sure and tell their children they love them every day. "It don't take but a couple seconds. And when you think you're too busy, really think about what you're saying you're too busy for. Because you don't want to live with this. That's what I regret. It's hard to live with regret and guilt," she said.

    Diena understands acutely that the world's attention will move on. The flowers in her home are beginning to fade. The vigils that used to occur nightly have grown more infrequent.

    But she is determined to continue the fight for justice. "I know I'm not gonna let this monster win. I will be victorious in the end, and he will pay," she said. "We're gonna get him, and he will pay. And I hope he's scared."

    A Middleburg woman whose daughter was a one-time roommate of Harrell and who said she has known him and his family for years described him as a recluse who enjoyed playing computer games.

    Lisa Buchanan said Harrell spent at least some time alone in his mother’s home at 1152 Gano Ave. at the time of Somer’s disappearance.

    She said her daughter then found child pornography, with girls as young as 6, on a computer and computer discs Harrell left behind. Buchanan and her 46-year-old husband, Rod, said they went with their daughter to turn over the materials to police in August. Those materials were in turn given to the state attorney general’s Cyber Crimes Unit. Processing was not finished until after Somer’s death, authorities said.

    The Buchanans said they spotted Harrell’s vehicle outside his mother’s home a few days after Somer’s body was found and alerted police to their concerns about him. The couple said Harrell’s mother and stepfather moved out of the home about two weeks before Somer’s disappearance.

    The couple also said police became extremely interested after learning Harrell had been spending time at his parents’ otherwise vacant home.

    Police have said they recently have been receiving a steady stream of laboratory tests of DNA and other evidence collected from where her body was found in a Folkston landfill.

    Records obtained by The Times-Union show the listed property owner, General L. Dailey — Harrell’s stepfather — moved out of the home late last year. Dailey, 66, owned the single-story brick house since 1996, according to Clay County property appraiser records.

    Somer Thompson: Person of interest arrested
    Last Update: 2/11 11:54 pm
    <snipped>
    Clay County Sheriff's Office Statement
    I have a short announcement to make and afterwards I will not be taking any questions:

    Members of the media have been inquiring about police activity on Gano Ave. today involving a search of a residence there. Additionally, other residences in Callahan, FL and Lauderdale County, Mississippi and a vehicle were searched in connection with this investigation.

    Earlier today a search warrant was executed at a residence at 1152 Gano Ave. Investigators from the Clay County Sheriff’s Office, the FBI and FDLE conducted a search for evidence in which a suspect has been arrested for 29 counts of possession of child pornography that occurred in Clay County recently. The suspect is identified as Jarred Harrell, 24 years of age, who formerly resided at the residence on Gano Ave.

    We are also naming Harrell as a person of interest in connection with the abduction and murder of Somer Thompson. Harrell was arrested today on child pornography charges by federal agents in Meridian, Mississippi without incident and is being held on a 1 million dollar bond on those charges.

    I cannot comment further about how Harrell may be connected to the Thompson case as that would require I comment on evidence in an ongoing investigation. Throughout this entire investigation we have been very careful to protect the integrity of our investigation by not releasing details that could be detrimental to the successful outcome or prosecution of the person responsible for this crime.

    Thank you for your cooperation.

    Sheriff still not connecting arrest to Somer Thompson Case
    Last Update: 2/11 11:56 pm

    Somer Thompson's family is still waiting for justice. Now for the first time in months, the Sheriff is talking about a possible person of interest in the case. "A suspect has been arrested, and charged with 29 counts of child pornography," said Sheriff Rick Beasler.

    But the sheriff is still very tight-lipped on how harrell is connected Somer's murder. "That would require I discuss evidence in an ongoing investigation," said the Sheriff.

    Sheriff Beasler says he won't do that. "We have been careful to protect the integrity of the investigation by not releasing details that could be detrimental to the successful outcome of the investigation or prosecution of the person responsible for this crime."

    Harrell's family friends suspect him in Somer's murder
    Last Update: 12:56 am
    <snipped>
    Rod and Lisa Buchanan are family friends with Jarred Harrell. Their Daughter and her fiance lived with Harrell in the Summer of 2009 in an apartment off the 2000 block of Wells. Rd in Orange Park.

    When the roommates suspected Harrell had child porn on his computer, they took a closer look at the computer. "She called me at work crying and was sick to her stomach," said Lisa Buchanan about the day in August when her daughter called and told her about what she found on the computer. Buchanan says her daughter and her fiance turned the computer over to police.

    Police say Harrell's computer contained pictures and videos of child porn. Some of the pictures, according to police, were on a CD labeled "Don't lose music."

    In October, when 7-year-old Somer Thompson disappeared and was found dead, the Buchanans suspected Harrell right away. "You just get that sick instinct in your gut," said Lisa Buchanan.

    The Middleburg couple has little doubt that Harrell is Somer's killer. "My gut instinct is yes," said Lisa Buchanan

    GMA~Exclusive: Diena Thompson, Mother of Murdered Somer Thompson: 'I Want [Killer] to Die'
    Mother's Heartbreaking Call for Answers Came Days Before Person of Interest Named in Child's Murder
    Feb. 12, 2010
    <snipped>
    "Why? Give me your best excuse, your best reason as to why you had to do this," Thompson told ABC News in an exclusive interview that aired today on "Good Morning America." "I want them to die. I want them to get the death penalty. I have to be the voice for Somer."

    The emotional interview took place just days before police named a former neighbor of the Thompson's a person of interest in the girl's death on Thursday. Jarred Harrell, 24, was arrested on 29 unrelated charges of possession of child pornography.

    Thompson, however, is determined to find her daughter's killer and said she can't wait to meet him or her face to face. "I feel like it'll give me some more closure because I still blame myself, you know? What if I did this?" she said. "And instead of looking in the mirror and blaming myself, I'm going to have a picture of someone else to blame. I want to see this person's face. I can't wait to meet him face to face."

    Thompson said she wants to know everything about how her daughter died. "I was there when she was born and I should know, how she left," she said. "Because I've built up so many scenarios in my head, that I honestly don't feel like anything they could tell me could be any worse than what I've already made up in my head."

    Man Arrested in Somer Thompson Case
    7-Year-Old Florida Girl's Body Found in Landfill; Jarred Mitchell Harrell Called Person of Interest
    ORANGE PARK, Fla., Feb. 12, 2010
    <snipped>
    Clay County Sheriff Rick Beseler said Jarred Mitchell Harrell, 24, who had lived in the girl's neighborhood was arrested in Mississippi Thursday on 29 charges of possession of child pornography. Officials at the Lauderdale County Detention Facility in Mississippi said they didn't know if he has a lawyer.

    Harrell, who was arrested in Meridian, Miss., had lived until recently in a home near Somer Thompson's. Authorities searched that house Thursday.

    Dawn Nuss, 39, whose 8-year-old daughter Christina used to walk home with Somer, said her daughter told her that Somer used to stop at the house and pet a white dog. No one would ever come out of the house. Sometimes Somer would run ahead of the children walking home and hide in a ditch.

    Search For Somer's Killer Leads To Mississippi
    Person Of Interest Arrested; Vacant Orange Park Home Searched

    POSTED: Friday, February 12, 2010
    UPDATED: 9:57 am EST February 12, 2010
    <snipped>
    Beseler said Jarred Harrell has been charged with 29 counts of possession of child pornography that occurred in Clay County, and he was arrested Thursday by federal agents in Meridian, Miss., and is being held on $1 million bond.

    Beseler said other residences in Callahan and Lauderdale County, Miss., and a vehicle have also been searched in connection with the case.

    According to documents released by the Clay County Sheriff's Office, Harrell possessed child pornography on his computer at a Wells Road apartment complex. Harrell was asked to move out of his residence in August after his roommates found out that he stole from them, according to an arrest warrant. He left the residence, leaving his computer and a box of CDs behind, according to the warrant. Authorities said Harrell moved into the home on Gano Avenue between that time and December, when neighbors said he moved out. According to the arrest warrant, the computer was processed by the attorney general's office, and that's when five movies and 24 child pornographic images were found showing children as old as 10 and 13 years old.

    Snow hampering Harrell's first appearance
    Last Update: 10:28 am
    <snipped>
    Its snowing hard here in Meridian, Mississippi. That snow is preventing Jarred Harrell from making his first appearance at the Lauderdale County Courthouse. Most employees can't get to work.

    That means Jarred Harrell may not appear before a judge until Tuesday. Monday is Presidents Day. I spoke with Lauderdale County Sheriff Billy Sollie and he tells me Harrell could sign paperwork to be extradited back to Clay County without appearing before a judge.

    Last night, photojournalist Jamey Cicalese and I drove nine hours from Jacksonville to learn more about Harrell. We've been in Meridian and for a few hours now. The snow keeps falling steadily.

    We'll keep you posted on what we learn in Meridian.

    My photojournalist and I just left the house Harrell was staying at in Meridian. He was staying with his Aunt, Kriss Mizelle. Mizelle's house was searched by the FBI Thursday afternoon and the computers were taken.

    Mizelle tells me Harrell was visiting her last week. She said he enjoyed Meridian and started looking for a job.

    She says Harrell was just a "big dough boy" and a good guy. She doesn't believe he had child pornography or has anything to do with Somer Thompson's death. "He wasn't hiding. He wasn't acting strange," Mizelle told me.

    Mizelle is upset because she says people are jumping to conclusions about her nephew. "He's not a freak," she told me.

    Right now I'm at Alma Bonner's house in Meridian. She lives across the street from where Jarred Harrell lived.

    The 73-year-old baby sat her great grandchildren at her house this week and was shocked to learn Harrell is a person of interest in Somer Thompson's murder. Bonner says around 3:00 Thursday she saw about 20 law enforcement cars and dozens of people at the house.

    Bonner told us she didn't know Harrell. She says she only saw his car at the house a few days.

    Directly across the street from the home FBI agents searched Thursday, a "for sale" sign points to frustration. "I moved out of here because of this," says neighbor Sandra Russell. Russell and her sister Connie Torres are moving out because they say Jarred Harrell freaked them out. "I knew he had a few loose screws that needed tightening up," Russell told First Coast News' Erich Spivey. "I watched that house constantly because something just told me there's something not right with it," Torres said.

    The sisters started moving out weeks ago, and were greeted Friday with the stunning news. "I was devastated. I freaked out. All my friends started calling me. This is your neighbor.

    He would sit outside about the time the kids would come home and he would wash his car," Russell said.
    Added Torres: "He only came out when the kids came out of school."

    Blog: On The Trail Of Jarred Harrell
    Channel 4 Reporter Jennifer Bauer's Blog From Mississippi

    POSTED: Friday, February 12, 2010
    UPDATED: 11:14 am EST February 12, 2010
    <snipped>
    Channel 4 reporter Jennifer Bauer and photojournalist Matt James traveled to Lauderdale County, Miss., where the man named a person of interest in the abduction and killing of Somer Thompson is in jail on child pornography charges.

    She is sending periodic updates from the place where Jarred Harrell moved sometime after leaving the home on Gano Avenue in Orange Park that the FBI and other authorities searched for evidence Thursday afternoon and evening. Bauer is sending blog posts throughout the day on what she has learned about Harrell's life there and if and when he will appear in court on the charges. Her most recent posts will be first.


    Friday, 10:15 a.m.:
    Went to the house where Harrell lived in Meridian and talked with a woman who identified herself as his aunt. She said, "I don't believe a thing that they are saying about him. He is not a monster." Watch my interview with her on the news at noon.
    Friday, 8:44 a.m.:
    I just had a cup of coffee with the sheriff (yes, this town is as small as you'd imagine). He says Harrell is in his jail, but like we've been reporting all day, the courts are closed down. If he goes before a judge, the sheriff is going to call me so we can get the perp walk.

    Sheriff tells me it won't exactly be a "first appearance" but more of a hearing to see what's going to happen to him. He'll likely be taken to Orange Park and may make is official "first appearance" there since it's their warrant. Clay County Sheriff Rick Beseler will have those answers.

    In the meantime, we're going to drive around town and find where this guy lived, worked etc....

    Friday, 7:32 a.m.:
    Snow!!! The town is shut down. According to the radio reports they're expecting 5-7 inches.

    Somer's Mom On 'Emotional Roller Coaster'
    POSTED: Friday, February 12, 2010
    UPDATED: 12:22 pm EST February 12, 2010
    <snipped>
    Diena Thompson has been waiting for closure since daughter Somer vanished in October. Her body was found two days later in a Georgia landfill. He has not been charged in Somer's death, and Diena Thompson's attorney, Michael Freed, said his client is trying not to get her hopes up about the latest development.

    "This has been an emotional roller coaster for her," Freed said. "We want to make sure the ride comes to an end before she reacts."

    Beseler released a statement that provided few details about the case and did not indicate what evidence makes Harrell a person of interest. "You just get this feeling that he's a very strange guy. He was not playing with a full deck. He's about four cans short of a six-pack," a neighbor said.

    Person of Interest in Somer Thompson Case
    Person of Interest Jarred Harrell, 24, Arrested on 29 Child Porn Charges, Lived Near Thompson

    Posted: Thursday, 11 February 2010 10:23PM
    <snipped>
    Police have arrested a former neighbor of Somer Thompson, the 7-year old girl whose body was found in landfill last fall, and named him a person of interest in the girl's disappearance and murder, investigators said today.

    Diena Thompson's Advice for Parents
    It is a struggle to balance that anger with a mother's need to stay strong for her remaining children. Thompson said the ordeal has been especially hard on Somer's twin, Samuel. They used to play in the pool together and race each other to see who could stay underwater the longest.

    "We used to nickname her 'Grace' because she couldn't really walk and chew bubblegum at the same time," Thompson said of Somer. She loved to dance, but she had no rhythm, Thompson said.

    "She was just so wonderful. And you take it for granted. You never think you're gonna be sitting here," Thompson said. "And you have a lot of regret because you may have been too busy. And you weren't really busy. You were just too busy in your head. And I'll have to live with that, and that's hard."

    She said she would tell other parents to be sure and tell their children they love them every day. "It don't take but a couple seconds. And when you think you're too busy, really think about what you're saying you're too busy for. Because you don't want to live with this. That's what I regret. It's hard to live with regret and guilt," she said.

    Diena understands acutely that the world's attention will move on. The flowers in her home are beginning to fade. The vigils that used to occur nightly have grown more infrequent.

    But she is determined to continue the fight for justice. "I know I'm not gonna let this monster win. I will be victorious in the end, and he will pay," she said. "We're gonna get him, and he will pay. And I hope he's scared."

    She said her daughter then found child pornography, with girls as young as 6, on a computer and computer discs Harrell left behind. Buchanan and her 46-year-old husband, Rod, said they went with their daughter to turn over the materials to police in August. Those materials were in turn given to the state attorney generalís Cyber Crimes Unit. Processing was not finished until after Somerís death, authorities said.

    The Buchanans said they spotted Harrellís vehicle outside his motherís home a few days after Somerís body was found and alerted police to their concerns about him. The couple said Harrellís mother and stepfather moved out of the home about two weeks before Somerís disappearance.

    The couple also said police became extremely interested after learning Harrell had been spending time at his parentsí otherwise vacant home.

    Police have said they recently have been receiving a steady stream of laboratory tests of DNA and other evidence collected from where her body was found in a Folkston landfill.

    Records obtained by The Times-Union show the listed property owner, General L. Dailey ó Harrellís stepfather ó moved out of the home late last year. Dailey, 66, owned the single-story brick house since 1996, according to Clay County property appraiser records.

    Clay County Sheriff's Office Statement
    I have a short announcement to make and afterwards I will not be taking any questions:

    Members of the media have been inquiring about police activity on Gano Ave. today involving a search of a residence there. Additionally, other residences in Callahan, FL and Lauderdale County, Mississippi and a vehicle were searched in connection with this investigation.

    Earlier today a search warrant was executed at a residence at 1152 Gano Ave. Investigators from the Clay County Sheriffís Office, the FBI and FDLE conducted a search for evidence in which a suspect has been arrested for 29 counts of possession of child pornography that occurred in Clay County recently. The suspect is identified as Jarred Harrell, 24 years of age, who formerly resided at the residence on Gano Ave.

    We are also naming Harrell as a person of interest in connection with the abduction and murder of Somer Thompson. Harrell was arrested today on child pornography charges by federal agents in Meridian, Mississippi without incident and is being held on a 1 million dollar bond on those charges.

    I cannot comment further about how Harrell may be connected to the Thompson case as that would require I comment on evidence in an ongoing investigation. Throughout this entire investigation we have been very careful to protect the integrity of our investigation by not releasing details that could be detrimental to the successful outcome or prosecution of the person responsible for this crime.

    Thank you for your cooperation.

    Somer Thompson's family is still waiting for justice. Now for the first time in months, the Sheriff is talking about a possible person of interest in the case. "A suspect has been arrested, and charged with 29 counts of child pornography," said Sheriff Rick Beasler.

    But the sheriff is still very tight-lipped on how harrell is connected Somer's murder. "That would require I discuss evidence in an ongoing investigation," said the Sheriff.

    Sheriff Beasler says he won't do that. "We have been careful to protect the integrity of the investigation by not releasing details that could be detrimental to the successful outcome of the investigation or prosecution of the person responsible for this crime."

    Harrell's family friends suspect him in Somer's murder
    Last Update: 12:56 am
    <snipped>
    Rod and Lisa Buchanan are family friends with Jarred Harrell. Their Daughter and her fiance lived with Harrell in the Summer of 2009 in an apartment off the 2000 block of Wells. Rd in Orange Park.

    When the roommates suspected Harrell had child porn on his computer, they took a closer look at the computer. "She called me at work crying and was sick to her stomach," said Lisa Buchanan about the day in August when her daughter called and told her about what she found on the computer. Buchanan says her daughter and her fiance turned the computer over to police.

    Police say Harrell's computer contained pictures and videos of child porn. Some of the pictures, according to police, were on a CD labeled "Don't lose music."

    In October, when 7-year-old Somer Thompson disappeared and was found dead, the Buchanans suspected Harrell right away. "You just get that sick instinct in your gut," said Lisa Buchanan.

    The Middleburg couple has little doubt that Harrell is Somer's killer. "My gut instinct is yes," said Lisa Buchanan

    GMA~Exclusive: Diena Thompson, Mother of Murdered Somer Thompson: 'I Want [Killer] to Die'
    Mother's Heartbreaking Call for Answers Came Days Before Person of Interest Named in Child's Murder
    Feb. 12, 2010
    <snipped>
    "Why? Give me your best excuse, your best reason as to why you had to do this," Thompson told ABC News in an exclusive interview that aired today on "Good Morning America." "I want them to die. I want them to get the death penalty. I have to be the voice for Somer."

    The emotional interview took place just days before police named a former neighbor of the Thompson's a person of interest in the girl's death on Thursday. Jarred Harrell, 24, was arrested on 29 unrelated charges of possession of child pornography.

    Thompson, however, is determined to find her daughter's killer and said she can't wait to meet him or her face to face. "I feel like it'll give me some more closure because I still blame myself, you know? What if I did this?" she said. "And instead of looking in the mirror and blaming myself, I'm going to have a picture of someone else to blame. I want to see this person's face. I can't wait to meet him face to face."

    Thompson said she wants to know everything about how her daughter died. "I was there when she was born and I should know, how she left," she said. "Because I've built up so many scenarios in my head, that I honestly don't feel like anything they could tell me could be any worse than what I've already made up in my head."

    Man Arrested in Somer Thompson Case
    7-Year-Old Florida Girl's Body Found in Landfill; Jarred Mitchell Harrell Called Person of Interest
    ORANGE PARK, Fla., Feb. 12, 2010
    <snipped>
    Clay County Sheriff Rick Beseler said Jarred Mitchell Harrell, 24, who had lived in the girl's neighborhood was arrested in Mississippi Thursday on 29 charges of possession of child pornography. Officials at the Lauderdale County Detention Facility in Mississippi said they didn't know if he has a lawyer.

    Harrell, who was arrested in Meridian, Miss., had lived until recently in a home near Somer Thompson's. Authorities searched that house Thursday.

    Dawn Nuss, 39, whose 8-year-old daughter Christina used to walk home with Somer, said her daughter told her that Somer used to stop at the house and pet a white dog. No one would ever come out of the house. Sometimes Somer would run ahead of the children walking home and hide in a ditch.

    Search For Somer's Killer Leads To Mississippi
    Person Of Interest Arrested; Vacant Orange Park Home Searched

    POSTED: Friday, February 12, 2010
    UPDATED: 9:57 am EST February 12, 2010
    <snipped>
    Beseler said Jarred Harrell has been charged with 29 counts of possession of child pornography that occurred in Clay County, and he was arrested Thursday by federal agents in Meridian, Miss., and is being held on $1 million bond.

    Beseler said other residences in Callahan and Lauderdale County, Miss., and a vehicle have also been searched in connection with the case.

    According to documents released by the Clay County Sheriff's Office, Harrell possessed child pornography on his computer at a Wells Road apartment complex. Harrell was asked to move out of his residence in August after his roommates found out that he stole from them, according to an arrest warrant. He left the residence, leaving his computer and a box of CDs behind, according to the warrant. Authorities said Harrell moved into the home on Gano Avenue between that time and December, when neighbors said he moved out. According to the arrest warrant, the computer was processed by the attorney general's office, and that's when five movies and 24 child pornographic images were found showing children as old as 10 and 13 years old.

    Snow hampering Harrell's first appearance
    Last Update: 10:28 am
    <snipped>
    Its snowing hard here in Meridian, Mississippi. That snow is preventing Jarred Harrell from making his first appearance at the Lauderdale County Courthouse. Most employees can't get to work.

    That means Jarred Harrell may not appear before a judge until Tuesday. Monday is Presidents Day. I spoke with Lauderdale County Sheriff Billy Sollie and he tells me Harrell could sign paperwork to be extradited back to Clay County without appearing before a judge.

    Last night, photojournalist Jamey Cicalese and I drove nine hours from Jacksonville to learn more about Harrell. We've been in Meridian and for a few hours now. The snow keeps falling steadily.

    We'll keep you posted on what we learn in Meridian.

    Harrell aunt calls him "sweet dough boy"

    My photojournalist and I just left the house Harrell was staying at in Meridian. He was staying with his Aunt, Kriss Mizelle. Mizelle's house was searched by the FBI Thursday afternoon and the computers were taken.

    Mizelle tells me Harrell was visiting her last week. She said he enjoyed Meridian and started looking for a job.

    She says Harrell was just a "big dough boy" and a good guy. She doesn't believe he had child pornography or has anything to do with Somer Thompson's death. "He wasn't hiding. He wasn't acting strange," Mizelle told me.

    Mizelle is upset because she says people are jumping to conclusions about her nephew. "He's not a freak," she told me.

    Feb 12 - 11:02 am
    Right now I'm at Alma Bonner's house in Meridian. She lives across the street from where Jarred Harrell lived.

    The 73-year-old baby sat her great grandchildren at her house this week and was shocked to learn Harrell is a person of interest in Somer Thompson's murder. Bonner says around 3:00 Thursday she saw about 20 law enforcement cars and dozens of people at the house.

    Bonner told us she didn't know Harrell. She says she only saw his car at the house a few days.

    Directly across the street from the home FBI agents searched Thursday, a "for sale" sign points to frustration. "I moved out of here because of this," says neighbor Sandra Russell. Russell and her sister Connie Torres are moving out because they say Jarred Harrell freaked them out. "I knew he had a few loose screws that needed tightening up," Russell told First Coast News' Erich Spivey. "I watched that house constantly because something just told me there's something not right with it," Torres said.

    The sisters started moving out weeks ago, and were greeted Friday with the stunning news. "I was devastated. I freaked out. All my friends started calling me. This is your neighbor.

    He would sit outside about the time the kids would come home and he would wash his car," Russell said.
    Added Torres: "He only came out when the kids came out of school."

    Blog: On The Trail Of Jarred Harrell
    Channel 4 Reporter Jennifer Bauer's Blog From Mississippi

    POSTED: Friday, February 12, 2010
    UPDATED: 11:14 am EST February 12, 2010
    <snipped>
    Channel 4 reporter Jennifer Bauer and photojournalist Matt James traveled to Lauderdale County, Miss., where the man named a person of interest in the abduction and killing of Somer Thompson is in jail on child pornography charges.

    She is sending periodic updates from the place where Jarred Harrell moved sometime after leaving the home on Gano Avenue in Orange Park that the FBI and other authorities searched for evidence Thursday afternoon and evening. Bauer is sending blog posts throughout the day on what she has learned about Harrell's life there and if and when he will appear in court on the charges. Her most recent posts will be first.


    Friday, 10:15 a.m.:
    Went to the house where Harrell lived in Meridian and talked with a woman who identified herself as his aunt. She said, "I don't believe a thing that they are saying about him. He is not a monster." Watch my interview with her on the news at noon.
    Friday, 8:44 a.m.:
    I just had a cup of coffee with the sheriff (yes, this town is as small as you'd imagine). He says Harrell is in his jail, but like we've been reporting all day, the courts are closed down. If he goes before a judge, the sheriff is going to call me so we can get the perp walk.

    Sheriff tells me it won't exactly be a "first appearance" but more of a hearing to see what's going to happen to him. He'll likely be taken to Orange Park and may make is official "first appearance" there since it's their warrant. Clay County Sheriff Rick Beseler will have those answers.

    In the meantime, we're going to drive around town and find where this guy lived, worked etc....

    Friday, 7:32 a.m.:
    Snow!!! The town is shut down. According to the radio reports they're expecting 5-7 inches.

    Somer's Mom On 'Emotional Roller Coaster'
    POSTED: Friday, February 12, 2010
    UPDATED: 12:22 pm EST February 12, 2010
    <snipped>
    Diena Thompson has been waiting for closure since daughter Somer vanished in October. Her body was found two days later in a Georgia landfill. He has not been charged in Somer's death, and Diena Thompson's attorney, Michael Freed, said his client is trying not to get her hopes up about the latest development.

    "This has been an emotional roller coaster for her," Freed said. "We want to make sure the ride comes to an end before she reacts."

    Beseler released a statement that provided few details about the case and did not indicate what evidence makes Harrell a person of interest. "You just get this feeling that he's a very strange guy. He was not playing with a full deck. He's about four cans short of a six-pack," a neighbor said.
