Garbage trucks lead to discovery of dead Fla. girl

ORANGE PARK, Fla. (AP) - After 7-year-old Somer Thompson vanished on her way home from school, investigators tailed nine garbage trucks from her neighborhood to a Georgia landfill nearly 50 miles away, then picked through the trash as each rig spilled its load. They sorted through more than 225 tons of garbage before their worst fears were realized: Sticking out of the rubbish were a child's lifeless legs.

Sex Offender Worked on Renovation at Gano House



JACKSONVILLE, FL -- A man that worked on the renovation of the house at 1080 Gano Ave., where 7-year-old murder victim Somer Thompson was last seen alive, is a registered sex offender.

Vinson Design and Build is the construction company that was working on the Orange Park home, which has been vacant since a fire several months, according to Clay County public records.

James Vinson owns the company. Vinson's brother, George Vinson, who works for the company, is a registered sexual offender, according to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement sexual offender website. The FDLE have spent days scouring the house for clues.

The Gano house is the last place witnesses saw Somer Thompson, who vanished Monday on her way home from school. Police found the first-grader's body Wednesday in a Georgia landfill; the manner and cause of death have not been released.

Police vet more than 1,000 tips in girl's death

ORANGE PARK, Fla. — Investigators searching for the killer of a 7-year-old Florida girl found slain in a landfill say they are pursuing more than 1,000 tips received from across the U.S.

Clay County Sheriff's spokeswoman Mary Justino said Sunday in a news release that federal, state and local authorities are "actively vetting each workable lead" in the case of Somer Thompson, who vanished on her walk home from school Monday.

Meanwhile, two events were planned Sunday to raise money for Somer's family and for a reward fund.

Investigators have finished sifting through evidence from a vacant house Somer was last seen in front of and evidence from the Georgia landfill where her body was found. So far, no one has come forward to say they saw the girl abducted or attacked.
