It’s the worst experience any parent can endure: their child is missing and a frantic search results in the most horrific news possible. The murder of a child is a pain that most people cannot even begin to comprehend.
Somer Thompson was a bright 7-year-old who attended elementary school in Orange Park, Florida. On Monday, October 19 she was walking home with her sister and some friends when the conversation turned to an argument that Somer had with another girl that morning. This upset Somer, and she ran off on her own. Her sister saw her disappear into a distant crowd. It was the last time she saw Somer alive.
