    Police find the body of missing 10-year-old girl: Uncle is 'questioned' as cops find her remains in a well four days after she vanished from a Texas church

    Police in Texas believe they have found the body of 10-year-old girl, four days after she vanished from a church and sparked a nationwide Amber Alert.

    But on Saturday night, KHOU reported that her uncle was being questioned.

    The sheriff's department also got a tip at about 6pm Saturday which led them to the find, Cherokee County Sheriff James Campbell told the TV station.

    Evidence has also been found at an Old Jackson Highway property and police are seeking a search warrant, according to KSLA.

    I just heard... This is awful and so senseless.

    My heart is broken again as I read the news this morning that this precious angel was likely murdered by her own uncle. She probably went willingly with him, trusting him. I am sick to my stomach just thinking about how often these things happen to sweet babies. Dear God, please wrap your arms around Kayla and her parents.

    She probably did go willingly. Trusting him. So sick I hope answers and an arrest come soon.

    No wonder no one heard anything in the parking lot. She went in his vehicle without concern. :tears:

    Do we know if the uncle is a RSO?

    I saw this on a posting. Haven't been able to verify it which is why I am not posting his name or picture.
    Family have stated it was not a uncle, it was a cousin, who was married to Kayla's cousin. A registered sex offender.

    Kimster Director Staff Member

    While this isn't confirmed, I wouldn't be surprised it's a RSO. :mad:
  13. Takeitfromme

    Takeitfromme Professional Journalist/News Reporter

    In general RSO's tend to reoffend which is why they register them in the first place. But all of us here know that already.

    For mobile users: Authorities to hold press conference in case of Kayla Gomez-Orozco

    This press conference comes after authorities obtained a search warrant to further investigate the property where the believed body of 10 year old Kayla Gomez-Orozco’s was found.

    At this time, there is still no confirmation of any arrests made connected to the discovery of the body.

    REPORT: East Texas Child Murdered by Previously Deported Illegal Alien
    by BOB PRICE6 Nov 20161,705

    Law enforcement officials in East Texas are reporting the alleged murderer of 10-year-old Kayla Gomez-Orozco is a previously deported illegal alien from Mexico.
    Officials with the Smith County jail confirmed to Breitbart Texas that Gustavo Gonzalez, 24, is currently being held in the jail on an immigration detainer from Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers. Gonzalez was also confirmed to be a Mexican national by the jail official.

    reported an unnamed law enforcement official claimed that Gonzalez was previously deported in 2014 for a “violent crime.” Court records show that Gonzalez was arrested twice in 2014 on charges for assault causing bodily injury.

    The previously deported criminal alien is also reported to be a family member of Kayla Gomez-Orozco, the young girl whose body was found on Saturday. The body of the young girl was found in a well at a home in Smith County Texas, according to Sheriff Larry Smith. Gonzalez was initially reported to be Kayla’s uncle, but family members later clarified that he is a “cousin who acted like an uncle to Kayla.”

    Kayla disappeared on Tuesday following a church service at the Bullard First Assembly Church. Her body was found wearing the same clothes on Saturday night in a well near a family member’s house.


    The church were Kayla disappeared is located in Cherokee County. Officials with the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office referred questions from Breitbart Texas to the FBI in Dallas. A spokesperson for the FBI was not immediately available Sunday afternoon to respond.

    No motive for the homicide has been released by law enforcement officials.

    Smith County jail records show that the arrest of Gonzalez was made by Texas Rangers assigned to assist Cherokee County in the investigation. Breitbart Texas reached out to the Texas Department of Public Safety for additional information. No spokesperson was immediately available for comment.

    A vigil for the young East Texas girl is scheduled for Sunday evening at Jack Elementary School.

    Gonzalez has been living in Bullard, Texas. He is currently being held on the immigration detainer as the Cherokee County and Smith County District Attorneys determine what additional charges will be filed.

    Family member charged in death of 10-year-old girl

    Authorities in Tyler charged a 24-year old man with capital murder in the death of a 10-year old girl that prompted an Amber Alert last week.

    Gustavo Zavala-Garcia received a $10 million bond on Monday after detectives say he was responsible for the death of Kayla Gomez-Orozco.

    The 4th grader was found in a well behind a home Saturday night in Bullard that Zavala-Garcia lived at, ending an exhaustive search that gripped much of East Texas for days.

    Smith County Sheriff Larry Smith confirmed to WFAA on Monday that Zavala-Garcia was at the church where Kayla disappeared from on November 1.

    "I've seen a lot of bad stuff but this is one of the worst," Smith said.

    Smith says detectives continued to work the crime scene on Monday off FM2493, approximately 15 miles south of Tyler and were able to gather additional evidence from the well that led to the capital murder charge.

    He says detectives do have a narrative of a possible motive they are working from, but will not release that to the public.

    "We want a jury to hear that, and we don't want a change of venue," Smith said. "Smith County is not somewhere I would want to go in East Texas to commit a crime like this."
