The search for missing 3 year old BreeAnn Rodriguez has come to a sad but not unexpected conclusion. Senath Police Chief Omar Karnes has confirmed that authorities have located the body of BreeAnn Rodriguez. She has been missing since Saturday, August 6, 2011 when she disappeared while riding her pink bicycle out side of her home in Senath, MO.
Karnes said he could confirm that the girl’s body had been found, however, he could not elaborate on details at this time.
Further details are expected to be released from the Dunklin County Sheriff’s Department.
Since the three year old’s disappearance, police have arrested 43 year old neighbor Shawn Morgan and charged with first degree murder. The dirt bag Shawn Morgan admitted to using a plastic bag to strangle the precious 3 year old girl. What a sick, sick SOB. So he admits abducting her, taking Breeann to his home and killing her. Some how I think he might have left out some of the other crimes he committed against this little girl. However, now that they found her body, we shall see if the charges against this POS are amended.
According to the affidavit, on Friday, Aug. 12, authorities conducted an interview with Shawn Morgan, 43, of Senath, who stated on the day the child went missing, he discovered her standing on the ladder at the pool in his backyard. Morgan said he went to the girl, grabbed her, and carried her inside his house, where he used a white plastic trash bag to suffocate her, by holding it over her face and mouth.
The affidavit continues, adding Morgan then stated he placed the child’s body in the same trash bag, drove to the floodway ditches at Highway 164, and disposed of her by throwing her over the railing. Morgan added that upon returning to his residence, he dismantled the bicycle that Rodriguez had been riding, and disposed of it in the same river system.
