FOLKSTON, GA -- The child found in a Georgia landfill is a female, according to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.
A body was discovered this afternoon while officials searched a Georgia landfill - a routine part of a missing person investigation, said Clay County Sheriff Rick Beseler.

"The body of a small child has been found," Beseler said at a 4:15 p.m. news conference. "This is a rapidly unfolding matter."

This landfill is where trash from Somer's neighborhood is regularly taken, meaning the murder was probably not done in Georgia, so no federal charge. Investigators followed the trash and although the result is horrifying, at least she is found. Small consolation for a devastated family, but not knowing (Haleigh, Adji, Hasanni) has to be its own kind of hell.

Hopefully they will find items in close proximity to the body that can link her to a suspect. News reports say they will be working all night tonight to carefully remove her.

I have to wonder now, if the report is correct that a woman was driving the car 1 1/2 weeks ago when three people in a blue Nissan tried to trick a little girl to get in their car, what would that woman's involvement be? Is she Cruella herself, or doing the bidding of her significant other?

My heart goes out to Somers family and community.
