Girl’s Body Found

The body of a young girl believed to be the missing daughter of a man who killed himself has been found. Butte County Sheriff´s Sergeant Andy Duch says the girl found matches the description of 11-year-old Jeanene Bonner. The coroner will identify the body through dental records. Duch says the girl´s body has a gunshot wound in the head. It was covered with a green blanket and was well-camouflaged. Jeanene´s father, Joaquin Garcia, was found dead in the driver´s seat of the truck last Wednesday on Highway 32, near the turnoff to Butte Meadows. Jeanene was first reported missing to the Los Angeles County Sheriff´s Office on May 27th. She had been picked up at school by her father a week earlier.
