I heard from some person who’s investigating Shemaeah Gunnell‘s disappearance on behalf of Alvie Copeland Kiles, the man who was convicted of killing her, her baby sister and her mother. Kiles is on death row in Arizona. Anyway, the person wanted to know why Shemaeah was still listed as a missing child since Kiles was convicted in her death. He said there were reports that she had been sold for drugs and was in Mexico or something.
I wrote back explaining about why MP cases are still publicized even in the case of a murder conviction. (Shemaeah’s no longer on the NCMEC though.) It would be great if the little girl was still alive, but I’m not holding my breath. And frankly, I’m looking forward to writing an Executed Today entry for Kiles.
