Michael Plumadore, the man accused of killing 9-year-old Aliahna Lemmon, posted pictures of the murdered girl on his Facebook page.
Plumadore posted photos of Aliahna on his Facebook page one month before he allegedly killed the girl, bashing her head with a brick, hacking her to pieces with a handsaw and keeping her head in his freezer.
In many of the pictures, we see Alaihna standing alongside her sisters.
As it turns out, Plumadore befriended Alaihna’s grandfather James Lemmon, who was also a sex offender who he met in jail.
It’s one of the reasons Alaihna’s mother, Tarah Souders, moved to the Indiana trailer park to assist her dying father. Souders moved her three young girls to a run-down trailer park in rural Indiana to help take care of him as his lungs rotted from emphysema.
According to the New York Daily News:
The park had about two dozen homes and was riddled with convicted sex offenders, with one living at nearly every address.
She worried about neighbors with sex offense records who had been helping her father get by, according to trailer park residents.
And before she arrived, she even asked her father if her children could be at risk for abuse from two specific men – including a suspect now accused in her daughter’s death.
“He said, ‘No. They will not touch your children. They’re doing everything they’re supposed to do,’” said Greg Shumaker, one of 15 convicted sex offenders who live at the park and the other man that Souders had inquired about.
According to the affidavit, Plumadore told police that after beating Aliahna to death on the front steps of the home in the early morning hours of Thursday, he stuffed her body into trash bags and hid her in the freezer. He said he later cut up her body with a hacksaw and stuffed her remains into freezer bags.
The next morning, Plumadore made a trip to a convenience store to buy a cigar, according to surveillance video and The Journal Gazette.
Police said Plumadore told them he had hidden Aliahna’s head, feet and hands at the trailer and discarded her other remains at a nearby business.
Police obtained a warrant to search the trailer on Monday and found the body parts. A judge ordered Plumadore to be held without bail or bond.
No doubt about it, Plumadore is a monster and our thoughts and prayers are with the Lemmon family during this horrible time.
