Missing Indiana girl found dead in shed; stepmom charged with murder

Missing Indiana girl found dead in shed; stepmom charged with murder”

The stepmother of a missing 10-year-old from IN is accused of strangling her to death after authorities spent four days searching for the girl. Her body was hidden in a plastic trash bag.

Skylea's dad Kevin Carmack told FOX 59 that he believed his daughter ran away because she had been grounded.

Skylea Carmack's family says they last saw her on Saturday, August 31. She is now in Grant County Jail. Police believe she was already dead when Carmack reported her missing around 9 p.m. that night.

Her stepmother, Amanda Carmack, was arrested on charges of murder, strangulation, neglect of a dependent and domestic battery.

She had been missing since Saturday.

The four-day search for Skylea came to an end around 3 a.m. Wednesday morning. Police said Wednesday that they believe she was killed between 4:30 and 6:30 p.m. Saturday.

Multiple law enforcement agencies and area volunteer firemen spent the weekend searching for the girl after she was reported missing by her parents to the Gas City Police Department, authorities said. They have no other suspects at this time.

"We are hoping she ran away and is somewhere we haven't searched yet, but again the longer we go on, that is unlikely", Indiana State Police Sgt. Tony Slocum said. "That's just cowardice".

Amanda Carmack is pictured in a booking photo, alongside a provided image of 10-year-old Skylea Carmack.
