Jhessye (say "Jessie") was last seen October 11, 2011. Jerice Hunter's 6, 9, and 13 year old children (who have been placed into foster care) told caregivers and police that Jerice had beaten, starved, and kept Jhessye in a closet. Jerice was arrested for child abuse 11/21/11 but released 11/28/11 with no charges filed. Although a huge landfill search did not yield Jhessye's body, Jerice was charged with her murder 9/6/12. A separate section "Justice for Jhessye" contains all the info regarding Jerice.
