Body of missing girl found in city park in Northern California

A small memorial is now growing for the Suisun City girl reported missing Thursday and found dead early Friday in a park in Fairfield, Calif.

The girl's body was found nude in the park, and police are investigating the case as a homicide.

The slaying has parents in the community, along Interstate 80 northeast of San Francisco, on edge.

“That’s why I’m real close…like to keep them close… take him to school, pick him up if he needs a ride because I just can’t trust society right now,” said Armijo High School parent Chris Lumpkins.

Police relased few details and would not confirm her name or age.

“This is the main park here in town, one of Fairfield’s prides and joys. She was right out in the open. The parking lot was still dark … concealed by night,” said Sgt. Robert Lenke with the Fairfield Police Department.

Park entrances and exits are equipped with surveillance cameras, so police are examining the film for possible clues.

An autopsy has been completed but no cause of death has been released at this time.
