HOMOSASSA, Fla. - The news this small community feared finally came Saturday: Police had found the body of 9-year-old Jessica Marie Lunsford, more than three weeks after she was snatched from her bedroom.
Citrus County Sheriff Jeff Dawsy said Jessica's body was found during an overnight search near a mobile home close to the house where she lived with her father and grandparents. A registered sex offender confessed Friday to the kidnapping and killing and told authorities where to look for the missing girl.
Jessica's father, Mark Lunsford, visited the search scene shortly after sunrise.
"Everyone heard me say, time after time, that she would be home," he said, his eyes hidden behind dark sunglasses. "She's home now."
Jessica's safe return had become a preoccupation in this rural town of about 2,500 people, hundreds of whom had volunteered to scour the area in search of her. Word of the body's discovery spread as the sun rose, and at the end of her street well-wishers began building a makeshift memorial of candles, flowers and teddy bears.
"The last three weeks it's been hard to sleep, hard to eat," said Kim Bidlack, who taught the youth church class Jessica attended before vanishing Feb. 23. "It's so hard to explain how this makes you feel. We're so heartbroken over Jessie, but then you have so much bitterness to the person who would do this."
John Evander Couey, 46, confessed to kidnapping and killing Jessica after taking a lie-detector test Friday in Georgia, Dawsy said. Police said he was arrested Thursday in Augusta, Ga., on a probation violation for failing to notify officials that he was moving, a requirement for sex offenders.
At the time of the abduction, Couey was staying in a mobile home about 150 yards from Jessica's house with his half-sister and three others.
