ORANGE PARK, Fla. -- It's been more than three months since Somer Thompson disappeared on her walk home from school in Orange Park.

Detectives found her body two days later in a Georgia landfill. So far, no arrests have been made.

As for Diena Thompson, Somer's mom, she still doesn't know exactly how her daughter died.

Investigators said they're keeping quiet because they don't want to alert the killer about what they know.

Diena said today her gut feeling is that the killer is local and had probably talked to Somer at least once to gain her trust.

The grief has been so intense she wanted to get rid of Somer's things, but she was advised not to, so she packed them away for now.
