Witness in missing Colorado girl trial says girl was buried
CENTENNIAL, Colo. – A witness in the trial of an Aurora man charged with fatal child abuse in his daughter’s disappearance says he was told the girl was dead and buried in a field.
The testimony came Wednesday in the trial of Aaron Thompson, charged with fatal child abuse in the disappearance of his daughter Aarone. Authorities believe she died two years before she was reported missing.
Eric Williams Sr. testified that Shely Lowe, his former girlfriend who later lived with Thompson, told him that Aarone stopped breathing while taking a bath. Williams says Lowe told him that she and Thompson buried the girl in a field.
Lowe died of heart failure in 2006, about six months after Thompson reported Aarone missing.
Defense attorneys have said that Thompson was trying to cover up Aarone’s death at the hands of Lowe.
