I was just sitting here browsing the forum, when my phone rang. I knew it was my sister, but I could not understand her at first...finally I got that my cousins daughter was found murdered last night at about one in the morning. she was playing outside yesterday and I guess the last time anyone saw her alive was about five thirty. at about eight her moms boyfriend and her mom called the police to report her missing. she was discovered about one in the morning in a dumpster, dead...in the trailer park that she lives in. she was nine. I guess from what I am getting right now, they have a 'neighbor' in custody and have arrested him for murder...wow, this is just insane. it hasn't even really sunk in at this point...but im sure it will soon. I am just in shock. my cousins name is rich murphy, and he as well as the rest of the family could really use your prayers. what a sick, sick world...that a nine year old girl is killed. it happened in a small town called Smithville, which is ten minutes from my house. my sister said they were still questioning others, but they have a suspect...which I guess is good, because rich would kill this dude if he got to him first...I just don't understand how a human being can do things like this to another human being...and a child is just a whole other level of sick....prayers please. and once I get my head wrapped around this, and have more info I will post....till then if anyone has any links to updated info, feel free...not sure I will feel like being on the computer for a few days...me and him were close, and I am sure he will need us there for him...I could not imagine loosing one of my children, especially at this age, in this manner.
