"Very early on in this case, after not that many hours, it was determined that we were not making the progress we thought we should for that initial checklist. Not to state the obvious but at this point, it was time to call in the cavalry."- Sheriff David Morgan, June 5, 2017So from the horse's mouth, this could be a death that should not have happened to one of the children of Escambia County. The crucial and now known, only time to rescue Naomi was squandered. Is this ok with everybody???
Sources inside the ECSO confided that Naomi had been sexually active; however they were not sure if it was forcibly. The theory originally was that someone close to the girl had killed her in a sexual encounter. It has since been released that the people in close proximity to the girl originally suspected of the crime have been cleared.
In a classic Morgan moment another clever statement to the press after the little girl was found:
"I don't care why, you killed one of my citizens, that’s all I care about. I will leave the why to the psychologists and the scriptwriters."NOW, that the feds have deemed it necessary to know WHY someone would kill this little girl, maybe some headway can be made.
It is my sincere hope that this does not lead to the undercurrent of sex trafficking that has exists in Pensacola and surrounding areas. Despite having names, faces, DNA and exact addresses of the people who coordinated Shauna Newell's kidnapping, and selling into this web, ECSO made NO ARRESTS.
Shauna’s mother, Lisa Brant, didn’t like the idea, but after weeks of lobbying by her daughter, she met with the girl and the man she said was her father to make sure her daughter would be safe.The girl’s supposed father was really a convicted felon, and the “high school girl,” who had a record of prostitution in Texas, was an accomplice in the abduction. Shauna was drugged, raped and about to be sold on the Internet to a man in Texas for $300,000.
Authorities in Florida labeled Shauna Newell a runaway. She was found before she could be sold by efforts of her mother, Lisa Brant, and siblings who canvassed the street of Pensacola until they found her, with no help from the authorities.This is an excerpt from a human trafficking article out of Las Vegas that has similar circumstances as Shauna's. When Sheriff Morgan met with Shauna in 2009 after he came into office, Shauna ENTRUSTED him with her clothes from the incidence. They had not been collected at the time of the crime and were sealed in a bag ever since she left Sacred Heart the night she was recovered. Morgan told Shauna that he wanted to get these bastards and get some justice for her. The young lady trusted that the top law enforcement official was being genuine in his offer to help. However, Morgan was seen taking said bag and putting it in the trunk of his cruiser. The clothes were never processed and Morgan claims that Shauna never gave him her clothes. UNCONSCIONABLE!
Despite vanishing after a party in 2001, the fact she was stalked by one man and possibly pregnant my another man (not boy), Danielle Bell is still listed as a runaway. Danielle was 17 in 2001. The man she was seeing and possibly the father of her unborn child, was convicted of lewd and lascivious behavior for his sexual contact with Danielle. The family told news outlets that the ECSO lost interest a long time ago. Today, no one is looking for Danielle.
But there are others in the Milton-Pensacola area that didn't get the command performance by Sir David & his minion Chip.
