"It was obvious that the 11-year-old did not die from injuries from the accident", Barlow said.

Moments after they arrived, the motorists told police that they watched the driver, an adult woman, get out of the vehicle and pull a child's body wrapped in a blanket from inside, according to the Pocahontas Times of Marlinton, West Virginia. Foul play was suspected, he said.

Plummer said Newsome texted him out of the blue early Saturday to say she was bringing Kaye-lea to Buffalo.

Newsome said in a Miranda statement that she meant to take the girl to Buffalo, N.Y., where her father lived, according to the Times.

Plummer's dad, Donath Plummer, who lives in Buffalo, New York, said his daughter was a regular child and may have been struggling with her parents' separation. "Her injuries were non-motor vehicle injuries".

According to state police, a couple from New York City saw Newsome take the child's body out of the auto and over the embankment. "Something pushed her over the edge and she snapped".

Erica Newsome drove for two days with her dead daughter inside a truck before hitting a guardrail in West Virginia, where police say witnesses saw her dragging the body into the woods, according to The Pocahontas Times. Newsome moved with Kaye-lea to Jacksonville in 2014. The mother, Erica Newsome, is in jail in West Virginia, charged with concealing a dead body. The couple married in 2007 and separated in 2009.
