MIAMI -- Rilya Wilson's disappearance four years ago scandalized Florida's child-protection agency, but prosecutors say they now know what happened to the 4-year-old and charged one of her caregivers with murder.
Geralyn Graham, who was supposed to be taking care of the foster child, confessed while in jail on unrelated fraud charges, Katherine Fernandez Rundle, Miami-Dade state attorney, said Wednesday. Investigators later found corroborating evidence, she said.
"She basically broke down and told someone in the jail details about Rilya Wilson, including how she killed her," said Fernandez Rundle, who declined to give details.
Local 10 News' Gwen Belton spoke to the lead detective, Sarah Tymes, about the alleged confession. The following exchange took place.
Tymes: "I cannot go into detail, verbatim, as to everything that was discussed in the confession of Mrs. Graham."
Belton: "But she did confess?"
Tymes: "Yes. She did confess to killing Rilya Wilson."
Belton: "And then doing what with the child?"
Tymes: "Disposing of the child."
Tymes: "In a ravine."
Graham was previously charged with kidnapping and aggravated child abuse covering the time before Rilya's disappearance. No body has been found, prosecutors said.
