Florida Woman Drove to West Virginia With Daughter's Body

Deputies from the Jacksonville, Florida Sheriff's Department visited West Virginia as part of their investigation into the death of an 11 year old girl.

Newsome told police she had picked her daughter up from bed and put her in the truck on Friday and that the girl didn't move, eat, speak, drink or use the restroom in two days, which is the amount of time it took to drive to West Virginia.

The child's body was found near a wrecked auto in West Virginia on Sunday, according to The Pocahontas Times.

Witnesses to the crash stated the suspect had removed the victim from the vehicle and drug her over the embankment to the place she was found by police.

State Police Sgt. Herby Barlow told the Pocahontas Times that it was "obvious" that Plummer didn't die as a result of the accident.

State Police in West Virginia say investigators in Jacksonville searched Newsome's home in Jacksonville and found evidence of foul play.

Erica Newsome, 37, has been arrested and placed on $50,000 bail for "concealing a body".

A report via The Pocahontas Times cited Newsome telling cops after Sunday morning's crash that they left Jacksonville on Friday to drive to the home of the girl's father in Buffalo, New York.

In the meantime, he urged the Trump administration to continue funding cost-sharing reduction subsidies until reforms were passed. She said Anthem "has chose to break its commitment to Nevada, leaving thousands of Nevadans with disrupted health care services".

Motorists from New York City, traveling the same highway, reported seeing Newsome remove a body wrapped in a blanket from the vehicle and drag it over the hill.

Kaye-lea's father, Donath Plummer, lives in Buffalo.

The father disclosed that Newsome hadn't told him that their child was deceased.

He said they married in 2007 and separated two years later. In 2014, Newsome and Kaye-lea moved down to Jacksonville, and he hasn't seen them since.

"We didn't always agree on everything, but she was a great mother".

"Some illness, some sickness that got into her- that's the only explanation I could think of because Erica didn't do that", Plummer said. 'Something is very, very wrong.

To date it isn't necessarily understood if the mother sought counseling and whether child services ever becoming involved.
