Emily Elizabeth Haddock had stayed home from school sick and was by herself when someone broke into the home at 6988 Marks Road, outside of Vass, authorities said. The girl's grandfather stopped by the house at about 1:30 p.m. Friday to check on her when he noticed the door had been forced open, according to officials. He found her body on the floor and called 911. Authorities declined to say how the girl was killed but described the inside of the house as "a brutal scene." Detectives speculate it was a case of the young girl being at the wrong place at the wrong time. There were no suspects in the case Friday evening, and authorities were offering a reward for information leading to an arrest. Those who knew Emily described her as a ball of sunshine.
