Since the vehicle accident, West Virginia investigators were able to confirm the 11-year-old girl was killed in Jacksonville and loaded into the auto.

Plummer told the news station he believed his estranged wife "snapped" and that she'd been "the only person I trusted with my child".

ActionNewsJax adds that there is no confirmation on a cause of death, but foul play is suspected.

According to WIVB, Newsome has been arrested and charged with concealing the body of her daughter, Kaye-lea Plummer.

The 11-year-old child's mother, Erica Newsome of Jacksonville, Florida, lost control and wrecked the vehicle around 11 a.m. on Sunday, The Pocahontas Times said.

Chilled to the core, the couple, who were reportedly in town from NY to attend a bluegrass festival, said they got far more than they'd bargained for as they watched the woman drag the blanket-wrapped body into the woods.

West Virginia State Police say Erica Newsome crashed her vehicle Sunday morning in the Allegheny Mountains, and witnesses reported they saw her trying to hide her daughter's body by a hill.

Newsome was headed to NY to see Kay-Lea's father who spoke with Action News Jax reporter Russell Colburn, who said that he spoke with Newsome while she drove and she acted like everything was fine. The child's body was found near a wrecked vehicle in West Virginia on Sunday, according to The Pocahontas Times.

He said they married in 2007 and separated two years later.

In her Miranda statement, cops say Newsome told them she had picked her daughter up from her bed and put her in her truck on August 4. Reports from West Virginia say Newsome confessed to killing and abusing Kaye-Lea. She planned to drive to Buffalo, New York, where Kaye-lea's father lives.

Plummer said he received a text from Newsome Sunday night saying she was bringing his daughter to him in Buffalo.

On Sunday, police came to his workplace with news that his daughter was dead, he said. "I can't imagine what she actually went through".

'We didn't always agree on everything, but she was a great mother. "She needs help. She really needs help".

"I just wish I could have been there", Plummer said of his daughter.
