The mother of a 5-year-old girl thrown off a St. Pete bridge told ABC Action News her daughter was “her little angel and really now is an angel.”
Michelle Kerr, 29, who has two other children, says she last saw Phoebe Jonchuck on Christmas Eve.
St. Pete police say the girl’s father, John Jonchuck Jr., 25, threw the girl off Dick Meisner Bridge earlier this morning.
“I would do anything just to have her for one more day,” said Kerr while crying. “Phoebe’s spirit, she was so loveable.”
Kerr says her relationship with Phoebe’s father was strained and he became upset over news she was to be getting engaged to now fiance, Guy Kisser.
