Police in Ark. investigate death of 6-year-old; girl was chained to dresser in earlier case

Authorities are investigating the death of a 6-year-old girl whose father is imprisoned for chaining her to a dresser last year in northwest Arkansas.

Bentonville Police Chief Jon Simpson said Wednesday that Jersey Bridgeman's body was found in a nearby vacant house about 10 minutes after she was reported missing Tuesday morning.

Police say they're investigating her death as a homicide, but have not said how the girl died or released the names of any suspects. Bentonville is about 215 miles northwest of Little Rock.

More than 100 people gathered to mourn the child at a candlelight vigil Tuesday near Bentonville.

Jersey's father, David Bridgeman, pleaded guilty to false imprisonment, permitting abuse of a minor and endangering the welfare of a minor. He's serving an 18-year prison sentence.
