Georgia Bureau of Investigation Director Vernon Keenan released the autopsy results at a news conference this morning in the north Georgia town of Canton, where 7-year-old Jorelys Rivera's body had been found.

Police say Jorelys was last seen around 5 p.m. Friday at the River Ridge apartments in Canton, about 40 miles north of Atlanta.

Keenan called the crime a "very horrific and brutal murder." No suspects are in custody.

It takes a sick individual to

It takes a sick individual to do this to a child, when they catch the freak they need to send him to the electric chair and don't wait 10 years to do it, but before they do that they need to leave him in with all the other prisoners and let them do the same to him. Parents, don't let your children play outside alone....I know it is sad but you can't take the chance.

The 'person' who did this

The 'person' who did this could be doing the exact same thing to another child right now. I am disturbed beyond belief.

I find it hard to "just live with it" when it comes to someone doing this to an innocent child, apparently you do not have children

So sad. Why would anyone want

So sad. Why would anyone want to harm a child? Yes this person needs to be stopped before they hurt another innocent one. It does seem like a sorry world sometime.

Laying odds that ever who did

Laying odds that ever who did this has been through the system and either put on probation or paroled by our liberal judges and parole boards who actually believe you can rehabilitate these perverts.

Kmb, if you want to send your

Kmb, if you want to send your 7 year old to tae kwan bo, that's your choice. If you want to do it for fun, if you want to do it for physical fitness, sure. But yes, it's a waste of money.

No 7 year old can defend theirself against an adult, armed or not.

The tae kwon do kids don't do any better against the bullies at school, than anyone else.
