Body Found In Colorado Is That Of Missing Girl Jessica Ridgeway, Authorities Confirm
Colorado authorities confirm that a set of human remains recently discovered are those of 10-year-old Jessica Ridgeway.
Police in Colorado confirmed Friday that a dismembered body they discovered earlier in the week in Arvada is that of 10-year-old schoolgirl Jessica Ridgeway, who went missing from her Westminster home a week ago.
"Our focus has changed from the search for Jessica to a mission of justice for Jessica," Westminster Police Chief Lee Birk said. "We realize there is a predator at large in our community."
Ridgeway began a short walk from her home to Witt Elementary School on the morning of Oct. 5 but never arrived. A massive search by hundreds of law enforcement officers was launched hours later because Jessica's mother works nights and slept through a call from school officials saying the fifth-grader wasn't there.
Ridgeway's case made national headlines in the days following her disappearance as hundreds of police officers, bloodhounds and scores of volunteers scoured the chidl's neighborhood looking for clues to her whereabouts. Her father, Jeremiah Bryant, who lives in Missouri, traveled to Colorado when he learned of his daughter's disappearance, police said.
Our thoughts and prayers go out with them," Birk said, adding, "Theyve been in our hearts from the beginning."

Prayers to the family this just makes my heart ache.
OMG, that breaks my heart.
I weep for the family and the child.
My only solace and I wish I could tell the family is that she is in the arms of Jesus protected now.
That is the school district next to where my ten year old granddaughter attends.
Every parents nightmare. I will hug my child and pray for this girl and her family.
Dismembered. So for the monster that did this taking her life her wasn't enough.
As the saying goes, some people just need killing.
Find the subhuman filth, kill him and hasten the trip to hell!
Just pray they catch the guy who did this. How does someone murder a young child??? Heart-sickening.
When they find this murder, my hope would be sixty minutes with the parents, no interference.......that’s all to would take.
Public death penalty is a concept we need to restore.
Please tell me there’s no “mother’s boyfriend.” I’m just so sick of those stories. Prayers for this family. May Jessica rest in eternal peace.
They will need life long prayers.....
Such evil in this world.... Hard to believe people deny its existence
Vengeance belongs to God
“As the saying goes, some people just need killing.”
Over and over again.
Find the bastard that brutally murdered this beautiful child and hang him..none of this being on death row for 30 yrs enjoying the good life..actually a hanging might be too painless for this piece of garbage..just beat his ass to death
Tortured nearly to death, revived - tortured again, again again, again and again.....until they cry for mercy - then you publicly execute them.
It is a good thing I am not God, there is little forgiveness in me for these people......
Damn... just damn....
I am so sick and tired of this, every day, every day, every day, why can't you go out and get yourself a whore.
Can't afford it, call 1600 Penn Ave., maybe he will give you a subsidy, that's about the last thing they could think of, sure get your prostitute subsidy money, direct deposit.
DAMN I AM SICK AND TIRED OF HEARING OF THESE LITTLE GIRLS BEING MOLESTED. JUST DAMN.
My apologies for my RANT, this news is the straw that broke my resistance to anger today.
I don’t think we would have to execute this monster. If you leave him in general population, other prisoners will gladly do that for nothing.
This is horrible, this happened just miles from where I live, I have 4 daughters, and they are frightened to go outside now and - now have to try to explain why someone would do such an evil act. Pray they catch this evil person.
