Girl's body found after mother crashes auto on way to Buffalo

Donath Plummer with daughter Kaye-lea

"It was obvious that the 11-year-old did not die from injuries from the accident", Barlow told the Pocahontas Times.

Plummer told the news station he believed his estranged wife "snapped" and that she'd been "the only person I trusted with my child". The Sheriff's Office said they suspected foul play. They also found her 11-year-old daughter's body, police said.

Newsome said in a Miranda statement that she meant to take the girl to Buffalo, N.Y., where her father lived, according to the Times.

Erica Newsome was jailed Sunday on the charge of concealing the dead body of her 11-year-old daughter in her auto. "The child was placed in the vehicle early Saturday morning and she headed toward Buffalo, New York".

Chilled to the core, the couple, who were reportedly in town from NY to attend a bluegrass festival, said they got far more than they'd bargained for as they watched the woman drag the blanket-wrapped body into the woods.

"Something pushed her over the edge and she snapped", he told News 4 Jax.

She said her daughter did not move, eat, drink or use the restroom in the two days it took for them to drive from Florida to West Virginia.

Kaye-lea's father, Donath Plummer told WIVB that he and Newsome had been separated since 2014.




Newsome is now charged with concealing a dead human being. They found the woman, identified as Erica Newsome of Jacksonville, Florida, 150 feet up a hillside on an old logging road.

Plummer said Newsome did get his daughter an internet phone so they could talk.

On August 6th, West Virigina Police responded to a vehicle accident near the Virginia/West Virginia state line.

She shared that the child's father lived in Buffalo, New York and that's where she was driving toward.

Plummer says he hasn't heard from law enforcement or police since Sunday. Later that day, she texted him again saying they were having auto troubles and needed to rest, he told News 4 Jax.

"We didn't always agree on everything, but she was a great mother". "I can't imagine what she actually went through".

Plummer said that when he found out about what happened he was at work.
