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.
