Jarred Harrell Charged with Murder in the Death of 7 Year Old Somer Thompson


24 year old Jarred Mitchel Harrell has been charged with murder in the case of the death of 7 year old Somer Thompson. Somer Thompson went missing on October 19, 2009 as she was walking home from school. Sadly her body was  discovered two days later in a Georgia landfill about 50 miles from Orange Park, FL


Jared Harrell, the “MONSTER” who killed Somer Thompson

Diena Thompson called Harrell a “monster” during an afternoon news conference.

Clay County Sheriff Rick Beseler said detectives used DNA evidence, witnesses and statements from Harrell himself to solve the case.

“Our collective resolve to bring Somer’s killer to justice is the only light in the darkness caused by this tragedy,” Beseler said as about 50 members of “Team Somer” — the sheriff’s office investigators and staff who worked the case — stood by.

Diena Thompson called Harrell a monster; however, we think that this might do a disservice to monsters. Harrell is worse that a monster. He is the biggest POS that exists on this earth. A man that would abduct, rape and murder a 7 year old child does not deserve to be breathing or have a heart pulse. If convicted of the premeditated murder charge in the death of Somer Thompson, Harrell could face the death penalty. It could not happen soon enough.

Jarred Harrell has been held at the Clay County Jail since his arrest in  February 11, 2010. Law enforcement arrested this dirt bag in Mississippi on child pornography charges in Florida.

Harrell was charged with 29 counts of possessing child pornography in Florida, then charged with a dozen additional counts of child porn and child molestation.

At the time of his February arrest, Harrell’s aunt said she didn’t think her nephew was capable of violence.



Harrell moved to his aunt’s home in Meridian, MS a few weeks earlier prior to the arrest. He was then extradited to Florida.  Of course his relatives don’t believe he is capable of violence, but I guess they don’t believe in DNA evidence.

At the time of Somer Thompson’s disappearance, Jared Harrell was living at his parents’ Jacksonville home, near the elementary school and house where Somer attended and lived.

      Sometimes the perp ends up dead.

      In 1974, I was abducted, beaten and raped by a recidivist, pedophile predator with a history of sex crimes and prison time. Although he was arrested and indicted for what he did to me, he never went to trial. He never went to trial because he was brutally beaten to death in the streets of Providence, Rhode Island in 1975. 35 years later, no one has ever been charged with his murder.

      The novel, Men in My Town is my story. A story inspired by actual events.

      May Somer’s family and those they love, find peace.

      Put these people to death for the FIRST OFFENSE! That is the only way to stop this epidemic of repeat offenders that is going on. And maybe it would deter some first timers as well!

      The people MUST make the lawmakers in every state introduce and pass legislation that will make the courts sentencing of these SCUM an automatic life sentence with no chance for parole.
      In addition, any person who provides aid to these perps in any way is subject to jail time as well.
      The District Attorney’s need to be compelled to recommend the death penalty for such acts as this person committed. In addition, the death penalty should be carried out within five days of conviction.
      I would be glad to take this scumbag and beat the living daylights out of him with a piece of two inch plastic pipe and then stand him up and put a 22 calibre bullet between his eyes.

      I agree..these people must be put down with first offense to protect out citizens. Why feed and keep them protected behind bars?????

      Let’s see what lame excuse the prosecutor is going to come up with and spend our tax payor dollars. Thank God the Sheriff has been conducting a tight and meticulous case so these lawyers don’t get this lser out on some technicality. As far as the aunt and parents, charge them as well.
