Johni Michelle Heuser
Ronald Earl Creech II was coming home.
A member of the Army’s 82nd Airborne Division, Ronald Creech had been in Iraq for 15 months on an extended tour of duty, and was looking forward to seeing his beautiful 11-month-old baby girl, Harmony Jade Creech, who was being taken care of by his girlfriend, 25-year-old Johni Michelle Heuser.
After landing late in the morning on the 19th of October, 2007 and being picked up at the airport by a family member, Ronald walked into Johni Michelle Heuser’s house, into his baby girl’s room…and she wasn’t there. The window was open and the window screen was propped up against the house outside.
It looked like someone had broken in to Johni Heuser’s house through a bedroom window that faced a busy road, without alarming her or her other three young children, and had run off with little Harmony Creech.
The police were called. A statewide Amber Alert was issued.
Investigators acting on the Amber Alert stopped countless cars in the area, showing drivers a picture of Harmony and begging for clues.
Johni Heuser, whose MySpace page announces that she is single, claimed that the last time she had seen Harmony was at 11 that morning. According to Johni, Harmony Creech was wearing pink footie pajamas with the words “Daddy’s Girl” embroidered on one arm.
There were fifteen FBI agents assigned to the case and the area was awash in rumors and fear…
…until someone thought to look in the attic of Johni Heuser’s home and found the body of little Harmony hidden there. Her corpse had been sitting in the attic for weeks.
Neighbors, who described Johni Heuser as being secretive and private, had smelled something in the area that was reminiscent of a decomposing dead animal. It was so bad on the warmer days that people were searching their yards for something that died. It wasn’t until the weather started cooling down that the smell finally faded.
After being arrested and interviewed, Ms. Heuser told authorities that she had found Harmony dead in her crib several weeks ago, had panicked and put the baby’s body in the attic of her home.
It kind of makes you wonder why she had chosen to describe what Harmony had been wearing. A jumper with “Daddy’s Girl” sewn onto the sleeve? Was that a subtle, cruel shot at Ronald Creech?
Johni Michelle Heuser has been charged with first-degree murder. When she showed up for court on the 22nd of October, she mentioned that she understood the charges and asked for an attorney.
