PANOLA COUNTY, Miss. - Investigators call it the most brutal crime they’ve ever seen.
Jessica Chambers went out to tidy up her car and grab some dinner. Her mother, Lisa Chambers, told WREG what Jessica said when she left.
“'Bye, I love you, Mama. See you in a little while.’ Next time I seen her, she was in the Med,” said Lisa Chambers.
When police found Jessica Chambers, she was “walking down the road on fire,” they said. The girl had burns covering 98 percent of her body. She died after being flown to a Memphis hospital.
The girl’s father told Fox, “The only part of her body that wasn't burned was the bottom of her feet."
Ben Champion described the horrors his daughter went though.
"They squirted lighter fluid down her throat and in her nose,” he began.
“Apparently they knocked her out. She had a big gash on the top of her head.”
Emergency crews confirmed Jessica Chambers was able to speak when they arrived. Her father says those were important words.
"She told them, she told them, told him who done it," he proclaimed.
Panola County District Attorney John Champion says people have been questioned but "as far as arrests are concerned, there have been none made.”
