The FBI reports that Jenise Paulette Wright, age 6, was reported missing by her family on the evening of August 3, 2014. At the time of her disappearance, Jenise lived with her family in a residential unit inside the Steele Creek Mobile Home Park in East Bremerton, Washington.
On August 7, 2014, after a massive search, the remains of little Jenise were located in the vicinity of the Steele Creek Mobile Home Park. Her death has been ruled a homicide. Sheriff spokesman said that there were no signs of forced entry at the girl’s home and no indication that she was taken from her room.
Jenise’s body was covered with thick brush and likely was muddy and a possible suspect may have muddy clothing. Deputies are collecting DNA cheek swabs from residents who volunteer them from the mobile home park where Jenise lived. (Story continues below video)

After the search began, state child welfare workers removed two other children, an 8-year-old boy and 12-year-old girl, from the home.
Jenise Wright’s father, James Wright, was charged more than a decade ago with molesting two girls, ages 8 and 15, court records show.
He eventually pleaded guilty in Whatcom County Superior Court in December 2001 to a misdemeanor assault charge related to the older girl. It was not immediately clear why the molestation charges were dropped.
