Somer Thompson’s body has been found in a Georgia landfill. Somer Thompson’s body was confirmed found, says Clay County Sheriff Rick Beseler Thursday morning.
Beseler says that he informed the missing girl’s mother Diena Thompson that the body found Wednesday night was indeed her daughter. Official confirmation of the body is pending a medial examination to be completed Thursday.
But identifying traits – a birthmark and clothing remains – indicate the body is that of Somer, reveals Beseler to GMA Thursday morning.
A vigil was held Wednesday night for Somer. The 7 year old was last seen Monday returning home on foot from school. “I had to make one of the hardest calls I’ve ever had to make in my career last night” says Beseler.
