A child's body was found today near where 6-year-old Jenise Wright disappeared last week. Police are trying to identify the body. The remains were found near Wright's home in Bremerton, Washington. "Our unified investigative team have found what appears to be the remains of a child.
The body has not yet been identified," said Earl Schmidt, incident commander at the Kitsap County Sheriff's office. "The body will be turned over to the Kitsap County coroners office who will conduct an autopsy. They will determine that cause and manner of death," Schmidt said. Jenise vanished on Saturday in Bremerton.
The father of a missing six-year-old girl in Washington state was charged with molesting two young girls over a decade ago, it emerged today. James Aaron Wright has been co-operating with the investigation into the disappearance of his daughter Jenise, who was last seen by her family on Saturday going to bed in their mobile home in a rural section of Bremerton, near Seattle. It was not until the little girl missed dinner Sunday night that her parents called police, authorities said.
Today it emerged James Wright, who goes by Jim, was arrested in 2000 on felony charges of child molestation in the first degree after an 8-year-old girl said he inappropriately touched them after a night of drinking. More than a year later, in June 2001, the charges were amended to include third-degree child molestation after a 15-year-old girl who was babysitting the girl during New Year's Eve 2000 said that Wright touched her breasts and put his hands down her pants.
In court records filed in Whatcom County, Washington, the younger of his accusers said she had reported the incident to her mother who told her she would 'get a spanking' if she spoke of the incident again. The felony charges against Wright were eventually dropped, and he pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of assault relating to the older child, court records show.
