Daughter's body found after Florida mom crashes in West Virginia, police say

Erica Newsome Erica Newsome

Her truck crashed in West Virginia, and the woman was able to drag the dead girl 150 years from the roadway before being apprehended.

The West Virginia Highway Patrol reports that Newsome stated she had picked up her daughter, Kaye-lea Plummer, on Friday.

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

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

After their investigation, police in Jacksonville, Florida discovered a crime scene in Newsome's home and believe that's where the girl was killed, before she was loaded into the auto.

Newsome is now charged with concealing a dead human being.


"At this time, foul play is suspected in the child's death and we believe the death occurred in Jacksonville, Florida", the sheriff's office there said.

The Times also reported that a couple witnessed Newsome removing a body from her vehicle after the crash and dragging it over a hill and into the woods. Newsome says her plan was to drive all the way to Buffalo, New York, to see the girl's father.

According to the Pocahontas Times, Newsome told detectives that she had killed her daughter and was abusive to her.

The father disclosed that Newsome hadn't told him that their child was deceased.

The woman said the child did not move, eat, drink, speak or use the restroom for two days as they drove from Jacksonville to the scene of the accident. He said he hadn't seen them since Newsome moved with Kaye-lea to Jacksonville in 2014, but he would check on his daughter regularly by phone.

"Some illness, some sickness that got into her- that's the only explanation I could think of because Erica didn't do that", Plummer said. Or whether he was aware of the child allegedly being abused. Neither Erica now Kaye-lea didn't make it NY.
