Two Bodies Found in Alabama House After 12-Year-Old Girl Chews Through Restraints to Escape Kidnapper

Jose Paulino Pascual-Reyes

A 12-year-old girl walking alone on an Alabama roadway sparked a kidnapping investigation that also led authorities to two decomposing bodies.

The investigation began just before 8:30 a.m. Monday when a passerby spotted the girl walking in the area of 3547 County Road 34 in rural Dadeville, said Tallapoosa County Sheriff Jimmy Abbett.

The motorist picked up the child, and immediately called 911.

Abbett said a team of state, local and federal investigators worked over the next 24 hours to arrest a suspect, identified Tuesday as Jose Paulino Pascual-Reyes.

The 37-year-old man is charged with first-degree kidnapping in connection with the young girl and three counts of capital murder and two counts of abuse of a corpse in connection with the bodies. He was taken into custody in Auburn.

He remains in the Tallapoosa County Jail pending a bond hearing, Abbett said.

Investigators searched Pascual-Reyes’ residence, which was near where the girl was found, and discovered two decomposed bodies.
