Girl abducted from Jacksonville Wal-Mart


JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A tragic end to an amber alert in Jacksonville, Florida today.

Police found the body of an 8-year-old girl who was abducted from a local Wal-Mart Friday night. Police have arrested a 56-year-old suspect in connection with her murder.

"We've got a lot of officers here.  We've got a lot of sworn personnel -- people who have dedicated their lives to protecting people.  This is hard.  It's difficult.  They're not just police officers; they're parents, brothers, sisters.  It's hard,” said Shannon Hartley, Jacksonville Sheriffs Office.

The victim's mother picked the suspect Donald J. Smith out of a series of police photos of possible suspects. Police found him driving his white van Saturday morning. It's unclear if he led authorities to the body of the little girl.
