Witnesses to the crash stated the suspect had removed the victim from the vehicle and drug her over the embankment to the place she was found by police.

Police say they believe 11-year-old Kaye-lea Plummer was killed at her home in Florida before her mother put her body in the truck.

Donath Plummer describes what it felt like when he heard the news of Kaye-Lea's death.

According to MetroNews in West Virginia, investigators were able to determine the child was killed in Jacksonville and loaded into the vehicle.

Newsome was headed to NY to see Kay-Lea's father who spoke with Action News Jax reporter Russell Colburn, who said that he spoke with Newsome while she drove and she acted like everything was fine.

A Florida woman was arrested after a pair of NY motorists traveling through West Virginia spotted her pulling the body of a child out of her crashed vehicle and then dragging it into the woods.

He told the television station he received a text from Newsome on Saturday saying she was bringing their daughter to Buffalo.

Newsome's bail was set at $50,000. The couple married in 2007 and separated in 2009. He said he hadn't seen them since Newsome moved with Kaye-lea to Jacksonville in 2014, but he would check on his daughter regularly by phone. 'Something is very, very wrong.

"I just wish I could have been there", Plummer said of his daughter. "She needs help. She really needs help".

Authorities concluded Kaye-lea Plummer was killed in Jacksonville.

According to MetroNews, "Jacksonville authorities went to Newsome's residence and discovered evidence of the crime there". Senior Trooper D.R. Dillon, present at the scene of the accident, recorded Newsome's statements.

Erica Newsome's truck hit a guardrail Sunday morning near Thornwood, about a mile and a half inside the West Virginia state line, according to West Virginia State Police. Jacksonville Sheriff's Office detectives traveled Monday to West Virginia to question Newsome.
