Justice for


Erica Vassell

Second unsolved murder
for family in less than two
years

BY JOSE JESUS ZARAGOZA
Glades County Democrat
In the days leading up to her death, Erica still
slept with her mother. The two had always been
close and the habit of her falling asleep next to
Gloria never escaped her, even-after she turned
21.
She was the baby of the house, says Jackie,
her sister. Her father, Eric, said that growing up,
Erica always demonstrated to him a very loving
side while he raised her and four siblings on his
OWn.
They all agree that she was also outspoken,
and might have made enemies as a result.
This all came to a head Feb. 11, when Erica's
body was found by the side of the road, next to a
sugarcane field in rural Glades County. Detectives
have been pursuing leads ever since, but are now
looking to the c.,n-n,- i, to help fill in the gaps,
to help answer the question: who killed Erica Vas-
sell?

'Found'
It may have been a passerby, a motorist on
his way somewhere, who first saw Erica draped
across the side of the road on County Road 720 in
Glades County - a long, desolate road that winds
its way into the interior reaches of Glades.
It happened early in the morning, four days
after a mother's first few desperate phone calls
to a daughter who hadn't come home following
a Super Bowl party at Suzy B's club in Clewiston.
She was found. approximately four miles from the

club. The last that anyone had seen of her having
been back at an apartment complex in Harlem.
Erica was found fully clothed, so officials
said it did not appear she had been sexually as-
saulted. This early in the investigation, they did


not indicate how she had been killed. But despite the discovery, not much is known
She was simply found, according to the lead about her final hours, including the span of
agencies in charge of the investigation: the Florida
Department of Law Enforcement and the Glades
County Sheriff's Office. See Erica - Page 19

Glades County Historical

Society
At the February meeting of the Glades County
historical society members voted to concentrate
on writing a regular newsletter and publicizing

Currently the group takes care of the restored
Pieter Westergaard house in order that other
clubs and citizens can use it for meetings and so-
cial gatherings. President, Anne Coffey, said that
there are several historic buildings remaining in
the county that should be restored but during this
recession most grants have been denied. Also,
any building eligible for historic designation must
be donated to the organization or the city.
In the past members worked in a booth dur-
ing Chalo Nitka displaying old photographs and
signing up new members. Treasurer, Al Schauseil,
said the group needs speakers and many more
members in order to keep the historic building in
operation.
He also said to notify local radio stations of
any'local events and meetings. Secretary, Julie
Wigton, suggested a web site and members each
said they would investigate this. "We also need
a calendar online in order to keep community
meetings scheduled correctly", she said.
Meantime the group will sponsor their regu-
lar spring fund raiser by selling and delivering
lunches on Friday, April 1. Featured on the menu

RELIGION COLUMNS


The Need For Revival
BY JACKIE MILLER, EVANGELIST
First Christian Church
In a few short weeks, from March 18 - 20, a
great Evangelist, Jim Book, Minister of First Chris-
tian Church, Winter Park, Fl., will be leading our
church in a Revival! I am going to devote my col-
umn to the subject of "Revival" over the next few
weeks.
Does the church need a Revival, and if it does,
what kind of Revival do we need. I am convinced
we need a Revival and here is the kind of Revival
we need:
1. We need a revival that calls from us a re-
newed reverence for God. God is Holy and de-
serves our worship and respect. He expects from
man the type of love that gives all the heart, soul
and mind. Worship must never become an exter-
nal act only, but it must be the sincere expression
of the heart. 2. We need a revival that calls us back
to the old-fashioned fear of God. God is merci-
ful, but He is also just, bringing wrath upon the
unrighteous. God will punish sin. The only way
a man will be saved from the wrath of God is the
repenting of sin and obeying the Gospel of Jesus
Christ. 3. We need a Revival that revives in us an
awareness of the awfulness of sin. Sin will not
only bring spiritual death, but also much unhap-
piness to us in this life if we continue in it. We
must always believe that whatever a man sows
that will be what he reaps. 4. We need a revival
that will bring us face to face with an awareness
of the importance of first things. What are the pri-
orities in the Christian's life? The world continual-
ly seeks to take us away from the important things
of God. Things done for the world will pass away,
but, if done for God, they will last for eternity. 5.
We need a revival which will make us aware of
the lost condition of the world. Unless men hear,
believe and obey God's Son, Jesus, they cannot
be saved. Yes, the Church needs a revival - a con-
tinuing revival!

Yearning to be Free
BY PASTOR JOHN HICKS
First United Methodist Church
A mighty woman with a torch, "Give me your
tired, your poor", says she, "Your huddled masses
yearning to breathe free."
Few passions run deeper in the human heart
than this desire to be free. There's something
in the human soul that just knows that being
in bondage is not how we were created to be.
By my desk-is a piece of the Berlin wall. It was
people's desire for freedom that eventually tore
that wall down.
Throughout history, it has been the desire for
freedom that has driven people many times to
come together to topple dictators and pull down
statues. It was the yearning for freedom that drove
a ragtag group of colonists to grab their muskets
and take on the British Empire, and America was
born. Over the past weeks, we have seen history
made again as hundreds of thousands of people
risked everything in a real life struggle for free-
dom in a place called "Liberation Square" (Tah-
rir). Once again, the unquenchable passion to
be free has changed a nation. If you think about
it, there are many around us who need a Libera-
tion Square experience. Maybe we need one our-
selves. The Bible tells us, "Anyone who commits
sin is a slave of sin" (John 8:34). At first thought,
sin may not seem like that big a deal, especially if
we just see sin as the breaking of some religious
rules. But it's so much more.
Sin's at the heart of broken families, broken,
relationships, broken hearts, and a broken world.
Sin's in every self-centered, dirty, or dishonest


thing we've ever done. Sin's in every word or
action that has hurt someone. Sin is a disease of
"me", when multiplied by six billion "nie's" on
this planet, extracts a terrible price. As someone
once shared, "sin is the ,i., I 1-.; of our life from
the very One who gave us our life." Sin enslaves
us. As we've seen in the past couple of weeks,
freedom often comes at the price' of blood. I
know mine did, but it wasn't my blood, but the
blood of God's Son that set me free. "To Him who
loves us and has freed us from our sins by His
blood ...--to Him be glory and power for ever and
ever! Amen." (Revelation 1:5-6)
The day I told Jesus I was His was the day this
sin-slave went free. And let me tell you, there's no
feeling like the day you know you're finally free.

Old Problems in New
Mediums
BY REV. SAM S. THOMAS, PH. D.+
Saint Martin's Church
I like to watch people speak; sometimes bet-
ter than what they're saying. I have watched TV
panels when all of the panelists feel they have
to speak at once: as if each feels what they are
saying is more important than what anybody else
has to offer.
I see people interrupting others in the middle
of a sentence or thought; sidetracking the speaker
and really treating higher as if they weren't there.
When everyone is speaking at the same time,
it isn't speech, it's noise. There are times when
I've watched such interchanges on TV with the
"Mute" button activated. You can see the gestur-
ing and the agitation, can picture the blood pres-
sure rising, can envision the heart rate increasing
and the pulse pounding and .. .what for? Is it "sig-
nal" or "noise?"
The problem is not a new one; it came to
mind as I was thinking about something to com-
fort someone who had just lost a loved one. The
Psalms offer solace at such times with their wis-
dom and insight into the human condition. One
source of comfort has always been Psalm 46;
"God is our refuge and strength ..." The Psalmist
speaks of noisy times and tumultuous world con-
ditions; the earth may be moved, mountains may
topple into the sea (v. 2) The nations make much
ado, and the kingdoms are shaken (v.7). Wars
were commonplace but God will bring their rau-
cous presence to an end (v. 10). What are we to
do about it all? The Psalmist knows: "Be still then,
and know that I am God!(v.11)" That's something
we're not good at being - still. We're not good at
being quiet or listening. No wonder God doesn't
seem to be around these days; we're too busy
shouting and ranting at the tops of our lungs.
Lamentations reminds us that "It is good to
wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord (3.26)."
Apparently the folks who make commercials on
Advertisers feel TV that they can sell more if they
shout louder or amp up the volume during their
presentations. No, it's not the hearing level that is
the problem, it's just that nobody wants to listen!
I visited someone in the hospital one day awhile
back. The TV was going on at a rather high level
of volume and I started to talk. I decided that I
wasn't going to try to out-shout the one-eyed
monster screwed to the wall and began to speak
in my normal tone of voice. After a few seconds,
the patient said "Wait a minute, let me turn that
thing down!" and did. We continued, being able
to listen and hear one another, being less dis-
tracted by the cacophony on the wall, being more
helpful and leaving each others' company a little
more at peace than when we first encountered.
You can do it too! Try it. Be still - God still speaks
to us if we give him a chance.

bass is a dream of yours than you need to check
out the Big "O." Warm weather has finally arrived
back in sunny South Florida and the warming wa-
ter has the bass going crazy.
Some of the bass are moving in off the main
lake to spawn and others are moving from spawn-
ing areas heading back out to the main lake. What
does all of this mean? It means that there are a lot
of bass to be caught all day long almost anywhere
in the lake. I have been fishing my clients from the
Monkey Box all the way to Kramer Island, it all
depends on how hard and which way the wind
is blowing.
My clients have caught bass in open water,
spawning areas, and almost anywhere I can get
my boat this week. Yes some of these bass were
caught in water so shallow this week that I'm not
so sure that the bass weren't sunburn on- their
backs. And when the bass are hard to catch in


the shallow water you just keep
moving out until you find where
they are at, usually where the
dirty water is mixing with the
clear water. Areas like the shoal
north of Uncle Joe's Cut, West
Wall, East Wall, Monkey Box,
North Shore, and around Ritta
Island have all been good ar-
eas for me this week. When
the wind blows hard out of
the north than North Shore is a
great place to fish and when it
blows too hard out of the east
than try moving inside the grass
and fishing where the water is
much cleaner.
Lure selection this week
has been all over the place with
Gambler Flapp'n Shad, and the new smaller ver-
sion of the Big EZ being my go to lures this week
but I also caught them on lipless crankbaits, Snag-
Proof Frogs, Gambler Cane Toads and Aces, Zoom
Vibra Craws, Reaction Innovation Skinny Dippers,

and yes even 10" worms. Char-
lie Worms is back and for those
of you who are not familiar
with this local worm the 10"
worm is the bomb for here
at Lake Okeechobee, it has a
bigger profile than other 10"
worms.
Soft plastics colors this
week haven't seem to matter
all that much but I start out in
the morning with darker colors
like junebug and black-blue
and than go to lighter colors as
the sun gets up overhead like
copperfield and watermelon-
red.


The lake level is down to
12.30 feet above sea level and
has been going down daily. This level is starting
to be dangerous in some areas to run your boats
and if you are not sure than slow down and idle
around it will save you money in the long run.
Word is that they are going to continue to let wa-


ter out of the lake down the rivers as well as for
the farmers, not sure who is managing the water
in Okeechobee these days but they sure aren't
doing a very good job. Everyone seems to blame
someone else for the water problems here on
Lake Okeechobee but no one will just stand up
take the blame and fix the water issues here on
one of the greatest fisheries in the world.
The crappie fishing remains good with fish
being caught in Uncle Joe's Cut, Bird Island, and
the rim canal here at the south end of the lake. I
will be at the Bass Pro Shops in Fort Myers this
coming weekend Feb. 25 and 26 doing seminars
on fishing South Florida for bass, stop by learn
some of the hottest ways to catch bass in Lake
Okeechobee and surrounding waters.
Until next week good luck, tight lines, and
hope to see you on the lake soon.

Corps Of Engineers Start

Another Lake Okeechobee Release


BY SUSAN JACKSON
Army Corps of Engineers
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Jackson-
ville District will continue water releases from
Lake Okeechobee to the Caloosahatchee Estu-
ary to help improve estuarine conditions, which
have declined in recent months due to the lack
of sufficient freshwater. A new water release
started on Feb. 18.
The target flow of this release is an average of
300 cubic feet per second (cfs) over a seven-day
period to the Caloosahatchee River measured at
W.P. Franklin Lock and Dam (S-79). The Corps
anticipates the total pulse release effect on the
lake level to be about a sLxth-of-an-inch off the
lake.
Today, the lake stage is 12.28 feet (NGVD).
"We are seeing a slight improvement of the
Caloosahatchee Estuary - that's to say its health
is no longer declining as rapidly as it was. We
will provide another release of freshwater to the
estuary so these benefits continue. The mixing
of this freshvvwater with seawater establishes sa-
linity levels that are essential to Caloosahatchee's
estuarine health, productivity and function,"
said Lt. Col. Michael Kinard, deputy district com-
mander, south Florida.
The release will provide much needed sup-
port to the natural system, while minimally im-
pacting Lake Okeechobee's water level, Kinard
said. Estuarine scientists say minimum fresh-
water releases to the Caloosahatchee River are
critical to maintaining estuarine health and pro-
ductivity.

Cfiaf ta. corn


portant food and nursery habitat for a multitude
of organisms, is an indicator of conditions in the
Caloosahatchee's upper estuary.
Corps officials expect this week's low vol-
ume release to continue prolonging the benefit
of lowered salinities, reducing i.ilii. .,.i, im-
pacts and degradation of the freshwater tape
grass and other submerged aquatic vegetation.
The Corps strives to maintain the lake be-
tween 12.5 and 15.5 feet (NGVD) while bal-
ancing all competing demands. At 12.28 feet
(NGVD), Lake Okeechobee's level is in the 2008
Lake Okeechobee Regulation Schedule's Ben-
eficial Use Sub-Band, which varies seasonally
between elevation 10.5 feet and 13 feet.
* Within this sub-band, unless releases are
required for navigation purposes, the Corps
generally defers to the South Florida Water Man-
agement District's recommendation for water
allocation to various users.
Fish and wildlife enhancement and/or water
supply deliveries for environmental needs may
involve conducting an environmental release
from the lake through the SFWMND Adaptive Pro-
tocols for Lake Okeechobee Operations or other
SFWMD authorities.
The Corps and partner agencies will contin-
ue to closely monitor and assess system condi-
tions.

Brighton Seminole Field



Day Celebrates Traditions


" U

James Holt wrestled an alligator during the Brighton Seminole Field Day festival on Friday.


BY KATRINA ELSKEN
INI Florida
Brighton Seminole Reservation's Annual Field
Day festival, held Feb..17 - 20, celebrated Native
American traditions and history.
The festival began in the late 1940 as an actu-
al "field day" for the Brighton Seminoles. Teach-
ers Mr. and Mrs. William Boehmer, who ran the
school at Brighton Reservation, organized the first
field day as a local celebration, with games and
races as well as competitions for cooking, sewing
and crafts. Over the years, the event expanded as
the Seminoles invited their non-Seminole friends
and neighbors to participate. As it grew, the fes-
tival was opened up to the public, and the tribe
used the event to raise money by charging gate
admission and by selling native arts and crafts.
In the 1990s, festival organizers expanded the
event to include Friday performances so that area
school children could attend as a field trip.
The annual festival now includes a PRCA (Pro-
fessional Rodeo Cowboy Association) Rodeo, an
Xtreme Bull Riding event, carnival rides and per-
formances Native American dancers from all over
the United States.
The festival grounds includes a small village of
Seminole chickees where visitors can learn about
traditional crafts and cooking. On Friday, in a
chickee displaying traditional clothing, Josephine
Villa operated a hand crank sewing machine, us-
ing tiny bits of colored cloth to create intricate
patterns.
"My mother taught me to sew on a hand crank
machine," she explained.
The hand crank machines were popular with
the Seminoles in the early 1900s because they
were portable and convenient. If a table was not
available, the operator could sit on the ground
and sew. These sewing machines are credited


with helping to create a lucrative crafts business.
Missionaries such as Deaconess Harriet Bedell,
who worked with the Florida Seminoles during
the Depression, encouraged the tribe to preserve
their native arts and crafts traditions and use them
as a source of income.
In the cooking chickee, Jennie Osceola skill-
fully kneaded a simple mixture of flour and water
into bread dough for fry bread. She explained that
no oil is used in the mixture because the dough
will absorb oil during cooking. She said the early
Seminoles did not use any leavening in the bread
because they maintained a very mobile lifestyle.
"We could make it to eat as we were travel-
ling," she explained. "We didn't let it rise then,
but today sometimes we do."
She said for convenience, she uses self-rising
flour.
It takes her about 30 minutes to work the
dough and just a few minutes to fry it up in the
hot oil.
The trick is working the dough to the right
consistency, she explained.
Near the fire in the cooking chickee, Jade Bras-
well made sofkee, which she explained was simi-
lar to grits and could be made from any grain.
A visit to the festival would not be complete
without seeing the alligator wrestling. On Friday,
James Holt showed off tricks such as opening the
gator's mouth and placing his hand between the
rows of sharp teeth.
While the Seminoles hunted alligators for their
hides, the modern sport of alligator wrestling was
developed for tourism, explained the announcer.
In addition to performing shows at festivals and at
the Seminole Native Village near Hollywood, Fla.,
alligator wrestlers compete against each other in
FAWC (Freestyle Alligator Wrestling Competition)
events.


LaBelle Celebrates Freedom


and Their Heroes


BY RAY LEVENTHAL
The ground swell of patriotism which, thank-
fully, seems to be a part of our collective con-
sciousness lately istestimony to the fact that more
and more Americans have come to realize the
cost paid by our Veterans so that we may enjoy
the rights and freedoms which make our nation
great. Our community shines with nothing short
of pure Americanism when we gather together,
as we do quite often, and celebrate our freedoms.
Witness the recent dedication ceremony for the
breathtaking monument at the Veteran's Memo-
rial Park. The number of people who came, wit-
nessed and participated clearly displays the heart
and soul of this wonderful City.
The 4th Annual Fallen Heroes Benefit will be
held on March 19. The event, typically held in July
near 'Fallen Heroes Day' has been moved this year

tion and support. This event will again benefit the
Veterans Memorial Park and is co-sponsored by
the American Legion Post 130, Veteran's of For-


eign Wars Post 10100, Disabled American Veter-
ans Chapter 144 and Moose Lodge 2398.
After a short brick laying ceremony at Veterans
Memorial Park at 9am, the event will feature a full
dinner with all the fixins for a donation of $6 per
person. Dinner will be served at VFW Post 10100
on SR 29. There will be entertainment including
a live band, raffles, prizes and the famous cake
and.pie wheel. All proceeds will go to the upkeep
and completion of the Veteran's Memorial Park.
Tickets are available at any of the sponsoring or-
ganizations and will be available at the VFW on
the day of the event.
Please join us as we celebrate not only this
beautiful park, but the service, dedication and
sacrifices made by all of our men and women
who have, do and will serve in our armed forces.

Sour Orange Festival
Nearly a thousand people enjoyed the Sour Orange Festival in Lakeport recently. Twenty-two local artisans and 20-plus civic organizations were there to dis-
play their crafts and disseminate information. Six local food vendors also provided excellent choices for dining experiences. Larry Luckey was the emcee for
the event, which included entertainment by the Lakeport Loafers Band, Country Rhythm Cloggers, and The Twirling Belles. The flag raising ceremony was a
very touching event. The National Anthem was sung by Salina Dorgan (Brighton Reservation), the American flag was presented by the Color Guard from the
Glades County Sheriff's Dept., all local veterans were recognized by the audience, and the Moore Haven High School Band provided several patriotic rendi-
tions. Lakeport Community Association would like to thank everyone who assisted in making this year's Festival a huge success. Special thanks go out to
the C.O.P.S. for help with parking, Lakeport Volunteer Fire Department for providing a free pancake breakfast, Commissioner Paul Beck for manning the 50/50
Raffle, Ticia Boland for collecting donations, Waste Pro for donating the dumpster, the Glades County Sheriff's Dept. for fingerprinting children, the "Big Red
Bus" for being here to save lives, and all the behind-the-scenes volunteers who gave so willingly of their time and talents.




New Resurfacing Project


Begins on 27


Project is the start new
road projects in the area

BY JOANNMAY
FDOT
This past Monday, Feb. 21, Florida Depart-
ment of Transportation's contractor, Ajax Paving,
started an eight mile resurfacing project on US 27
from Stitt Ranch in Hendry County to Old US 27
in Glades County. Project completion is expected
at the end of this summer.
FDOT emphasizes safe.driving (always buck-
le up, pay attention, don't tailgate, adjust your
speed) during this project and we're encouraging
all drivers to be part of the "safety team."
There is a 1.4 mile section of roadway at the
US 27/SR 80 intersection that will be resurfaced
during the upcoming US 27/SR 80 overpass proj-
ect. The 65 mph speed limit is maintained. One


lane in each direction remains open to traffic dur-
ing milling and resurfacing operations. Lane clo-
sures are permitted only during work hours - 6
a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Thursday. Proj-
ect completion is expected at the end of summer
2011.
The cost of the project is $3.6 million. The
contractor mills (takes up existing pavement) and
places new asphalt in the north/south roadway
section of US 27 first then moves milling and pav-
ing operations to the east/west segment to com-
plete the project. Use of driveways may be inter-
rupted for a short period of time while the paving
operation moves past the driveway.
During this project, motorists should expect
construction trucks and vehicles to be entering
and exiting the roadway.
Driving times also may be longer than usual,
so planning extra travel time is important. Mo-
torists also should anticipate changes in routine
travel patterns - and always drive with care.

Gates of safety?
The Caloosa Humane Society is in the midst of a complete renovation and
restructuring. One of the first major safety issues they want to address is
the safety of the animals. These rusty kennel gates create a hazard, being
patched together piece meal to try to secure the animals. The society hopes
to raise enough money to replace the double gates on each of its 26 kennels
at a cost of $400 per gate. A plaque acknowledging the generosity of the in-
dividual or business donor will be affixed to each replacement gate. Ceilings
are also in bad shape, attracting mold and mildew. For help, call the Caloosa
Humane Society at 863-675-0997.

Asian Citrus Psyllids Find Refuge in Abandoned Groves


U.E study shows what
growers have feared

BY TOM NORDIE
Univ. of Florida
For years, citrus growers have feared that
abandoned groves provided refuge for the Asian
citrus psyllid, an invasive insect that transmits
citrus greening-now, University of Florida re-
searchers say they were right.
A study published in the current issue of the
Journal of Economic Entomology shows that the
psyllid not only survives in abandoned groves, it
often travels to commercially active groves near-
by, bringing along the bacterium responsible for
the disease.
First detected in Florida in 2005, greening is
incurable and fatal to citrus trees. It is considered
the biggest threat to the state's $9 billion citrus
industry. Asian citrus psyllids pick up the greening
bacterium by feeding on sap from infected trees
and later transmit the pathogen while feeding on
healthy trees.
The results underscore the need for landown-
ers to remove or destroy unmanaged trees, some-
thing the state is urging, said entomologist Lukasz
Stelinski, an assistant professor with UF's Institute
of Food and Agricultural Sciences and one of the
study's authors.
"There was very much anecdotal evidence
that these abandoned areas are harboring cilrus
psyllids," Stelinski said. "It's just one of those
things that had to be confirmed."
An estimated 140,000 acres of citrus groves go
untended in Florida, according to the U.S. Depart-
ment of Agriculture. The state has an estimated
550,000 acres of active groves.
Much of the abandoned grove acreage is
believed to be owned by developers or inves-
tors who expected to clear the land rather than
produce citrus, Stelinski said. C..i-...... . il.. the
owners never provided basic management such
as pest control.
In the study, Stelinski and colleagues from
UF's Citrus Research and Education Center in
Lake Alfred sprayed nontoxic "marker" chemi-
cals on trees in seven abandoned groves, where
psyllids might be present. They also placed insect
traps in nearby commercially active groves.

When the traps were checked, researchers
found psyllids bearing the marker chemicals,
indicating that the pests had traveled from aban-
doned groves to active ones. Laboratory analysis
revealed that some of these psyllids carried the
bacterium that causes greening disease.
Researchers also took leaf samples from cit-
rus trees and found the presence of greening
was about the same in abandoned and managed
groves. Other members of the research team were
Siddharth Tiwari, Hannah Lewis-Rosenblum and
Kirsten Pelz-Stelinski, all with UF's entomology
and nematology department.
Stelinski added that as-yet unpublished find-
ings showed the insects could fly up to 1.25 miles
in 10 days, and could probably travel farther over
time.
"So you don't necessarily need to be right next
to an abandoned grove to be at risk," he said.
Currently, the state is asking local property ap-
praisers to urge landowners to remove or destroy
untended citrus trees by offering tax incentives to
do so, said Mike Sparks, executive vice president
and chief executive officer of Florida Citrus Mu-
tual, Florida's largest citrus grower trade organi-
zation.
"Even though we've had some success, it's
not nearly enough," Sparks said. "This study
could help us mold public policy."
Sparks said he hopes that the UF research will
persuade state and local officials to take further
action to reduce the amount of abandoned citrus
acreage.
"We have a $9 billion industry and 76,000 jobs
at stake," Sparks said. "Abandoned groves- are
putting all of. that at risk and policymakers need
to know that."

time between when she went missing and her
discovery; four days in all.
"We have been vigilantly trying to follow all
of our leads the past 10 days and we have some
people of interest in the case, but the leads are
starting to dry up," Stuart Whiddon, Glades Coun-
ty Sheriff, tells reporters.
One critical piece that officials released: the
crime 'may have occurred in Hendry County,
where she lived.

'Munsy'
Eric is Erica's father. He came from Jamaica
with three of his own children, and later became
father to Erica and another boy (both from his re-
lationship with Gloria). The two were divorced,
but Eric cared for his daughter for part of her
childhood, letting her move with her mother as
she became older and more interested in spend-
ing time with the women in her family.
Erica played baseball when she was younger,
but according to her father, she complained about
other children in school.
"She was'friendly, but a lot of people weren't
friendly to her," her father says. "She was outspo-
ken, and when you're outspoken, people don't
like that."
Erica's father said she was enrolled in Keiser
University, and had been pursuing a career in
medicine or massage therapy. In fact, one of the
last things he did for her was to buy her a laptop
for her studies. It's still sitting at their home, he
said.
"She never had a chance to use it."
He last saw her when she needed to buy a
distributor for her car. She wasn't alone. She with
a man she named to her father as a boyfriend.
Eric noticed the man's car had Texas plates, and
when he asked her about him, she simply said he
was from out-of-town.
Gloria remembers the same daughter.
"She was a good person, outspoken person,"
Gloria says. "She liked to be around a lot of peo-
ple sometimes. She loved people. That's Erica."
When she was born, Gloria began calling
Erica "Munsy." The name stuck with her, and this
was how she became known to the rest of her
brothers and sisters.
"I felt like she was my little Munsy," Gloria
says, smiling.
The relationship the mother and daughter
shared was extremely close. Erica would seldom
come home without waking her mother to talk
about everything that had happened that day -
and sometimes the people she might have had
strong discussions with.
"She always waked (sic.) me and sat by the
side of the bed and talked with me," Gloria says.
"If she went out, I knew everything about that
night. If she talked to a guy, she's going.to tell me
that, too."

'The news'
Erica went missing on Super Bowl Sunday.
That Monday, Gloria tried calling her, as the rest
of the family did, for the rest of the week. They
would not find out until Friday where she was.
That's when an officer stopped Eric and asked
what might have seemed like a ridiculous ques-
tion at the time: "Does your daughter have a tat-
too on her leg?"
He responded.

ated, Gloria thought hard, thinking about things Jackie is especially desperate: it is the second


time in as many years that she has lost a sibling. In
2009, her brother was killed in what also remains
an unsolved homicide in Palm Beach County -
trying what little patience the family maintains.
"This is the second murder my mama has to
go through," she says. "I still don't know who
murdered my brother, and I don't know who
murdered my sister. At least give mama closure
on this one."
It's still difficult, and if it suddenly becomes
any degree less so, it is simply because the family
is taking each day as it comes - including Gloria.
In the wake of two tragic deaths, there is little
rest for this mother.
Though Erica was found 10 days'earlier, on
Tuesday Gloria said she felt her as alive as any of
the many times Munsy had crawled up to her bed
late at night to talk to her.
'Last night I just felt her in the bed with me,"
she said. "And I didn't sleep at all last night."

information leading to an arrest in the case.
