Jessica Ridgeway’s Remains Identified Week After The 10 Year Old Goes Missing

This was almost too sad to write about, but we’re hoping with more information spread, the more help authorities will get to finding Jessica Ridgeway‘s brutal murderer.

The ten-year-old disappeared October 5 on her way to see some friends at the park.

That same weekend, her backpack was found in a residential area of Superior, Colorado. One week later, her mutilated remains are identified after being found in a park seven miles from her house.

Westminster police chief Lee Birk said in a statement:

“It is with a great deal of sorrow in my heart that I inform you that the body that was found in Arvada has been positively identified as Jessica Ridgeway. The mission has changed from a search for Jessica to a mission of justice for Jessica.”

Her remains were said to be so terribly dismembered, it took days to properly identify them as hers. Absolutely heart-wrenching…

Luckily, the FBI is working with local police. They thing the guilty is most likely someone known or in the community and asks everyone to be on the look-out for unusual behavior.

If you know of anything that could help them find the abductor(s) or have a tip for the police, contact (303) 658-4336 or [email protected] to help justice be served.

Rest in peace, poor Jessica…
