Purcell parents say daughter was inquisitive and loved everyone she met

Updated:
PURCELL, Okla. (AP) -- The parents of the 10-year-old girl who was found dead in the bedroom closet of her neighbor's apartment say their daughter had an inquisitive nature and loved everyone she met.

The Oklahoman spoke with Curtis Bolin and Jennifer Fox as they sorted through old photographs and memorabilia of Jamie Rose Bolin for use in tomorrow's memorial service.

Both have had little sleep since Jamie disappeared a week ago and was found dead two days later.

Fox -- a long-haul truck driver -- says she was driving through Arizona when Bolin contacted her and told her their child was missing. She says she stopped along an Interstate 40 shoulder and screamed.

Bolin says their child is in heaven with his father, James, for whom Jamie was named.

The auto dealership mechanic says he can no longer live at the apartment he and his daughter shared and plans to leave Purcell for Guthrie, where he can stay with relatives.

Bolin declined to comment on her accused killer, Kevin Underwood, but says he doesn't blame the man's family.
