Missing Girl Jhessye Shockley Still Not Found But Documents Found in Landfill
Police are still on the search for the missing 5 year old Jhessye Shockley in a landfill. This will be week two and there is no sign of the girl at this time and nothing has been found that is related to her death. The search began on February 6 and focuses on a ’180-by-200-foot area’ of the 691-acre Butterfield Landfill in Mobile.
The police have found, however, some documents in the area that’s being searched and was dated around the time little Jhessye’s disappearance was reported in Oct. 2011.
Glendale Police Officer Tracey Breeden tells New Times that documents with those dates were first found a few days ago, and more continue to be found in the area they’re searching.
Glendale authorities say the believe Shockley’s body was placed in a trash bin at some time before she was reported missing on Oct. 11th. They also believe her body was taken with the garbage to a landfill which would be south of the Valley.
“We know that the area that we’re in right now could take up to six to eight weeks to go through,” Breeden says.
The spot that’s been searched is said to contain around 6,000 tons of trash — about a day’s worth, by the landfill’s standards.
According to the police, Shockley’s mother Jerice Hunter still has not been very cooperative in the investigation. The Glendale Police Department would certainly like for her to take a polygraph examination. Source
