HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) — School officials in western Maryland say a 9-year-old girl who was found slain and dismembered in Indiana lived in Hagerstown earlier this year.

Washington County school officials say they are offering grief counseling to those who knew Aliahna Lemmon.

They say she attended Winter Street Elementary School from January to June of this year.

Authorities in Fort Wayne, Ind., say a neighbor, Mike Plumadore, has confessed to killing the girl Dec. 22 while babysitting her and her two sisters in the mobile home park where they all lived.

Plumadore allegedly told police he hit her repeatedly in the head with a brick, stashed her remains in a freezer and then dismembered the body with a hacksaw.

    Mike Plumadore should receive the exact same death as this young girl. We must change our laws and awards for people of this man’s demeanor.
