Don't know if anyone else has been following this but she's not missing any more; this dirtbag confessed to raping and killing her: HOMOSASSA, Fla. - Citrus County Sheriff Jeff Dawsy says John Couey has confessed to abducting and killing 9-year-old Jessica Lunsford. Jessica disappeared on Feb. 23. Couey, who was arrested Thursday in Georgia, initially was named a "person of interest." Couey sometimes stayed with his half-sister in a home across the street from the Lunsford's. Jessica's father said he had never met him. Dawsy said Couey submitted to a polygraph after about 13 hours of interviews with his investigators. "You don't need to tell me the results, I already know what they are," Couey reportedly said. Dawsy said that Couey then admitted to abducting Jessica and subsequently taking her life. The sheriff said Jessica Lunsford's body had not been found, but Couey gave them a general area to search. Couey has waived extradition in Georgia, agreeing to return to Florida. Jessica, a third grader, was last seen when she went to bed Feb. 23 in the home where she lived with her father and grandparents. She was discovered missing the next morning, with an unlocked door and a missing stuffed animal serving as evidence of her disappearance. Couey has an extensive criminal record that includes arrests for burglary, carrying a concealed weapon and indecent exposure. In 1991, he was arrested in Kissimmee on a charge of fondling a child under age 16. Records don't show how the case was resolved. During a house burglary in 1978, Couey was accused of grabbing a girl in her bedroom, placing his hand over her mouth and kissing her, Dawsy said. Couey was sentenced to 10 years in prison but was paroled in 1980. Sorry piece of sh*t. I looked up all the sex offenders in my neighborhood ( not too bad, two in the whole beat area) after seeing this and I'm thinking about sending out a little letter.
