From Perverse Fantasies To Child Killer

Jamie Rose Bolin was a 10-year-old girl who lived in an apartment with her father Curtis Bolin. They lived in the same apartment complex as 26-year-old Kevin Ray Underwood, what they didn’t know is that Underwood had a perverse fantasy to kidnap, rape and murder a child.

On April 12th, 2006 Bolin was riding her bike past Underwood’s place when he lured the 10-year-old up to his apartment to meet his pet rat and watch cartoons. Once Bolin was inside the apartment Underwood bashed in her skull with a chopping board, he then choked her, slit her throat and then sexually assaulted her. It’s believed he was trying to decapitate the young girl but he was unsuccessful. Underwood then stashed Bolin’s body in a plastic tub, taped the lid shut and placed it in his closet. He also took apart her bike and hid the parts under his bed.

Two days after Bolin’s disappearance police put together a search party and that’s when they first became suspicious of Underwood because he offered to help look for the missing girl. Then after police stopped Underwood at a roadblock they noticed he was acting strange so they decided to take him down to the police station for questioning and that’s when they got their first big break of the case.

Whilst at the police station Underwood stated that he had seen Bolin riding her bike the day she went missing then later on after further questioning Underwood let slip that his father was a butcher and that he had personally fantasized about butchering a human. Police then conducted a search of Underwood’s apartment where they found Bolin’s body in the plastic tub, her dismantled bike under his bed, skewers, meat tenderizer, numerous knives, swords, a video on serial killers and rolls of duct tape.

After the discoveries at Underwood’s home police chief David Tompkins stated that “this appears to have been part of a plan to kidnap a person, rape them, torture them, kill them, cut off their head, drain the body of blood, rape the corpse, eat the corpse, then dispose of the organs and bones”.

After a trial and just 20 minutes of jury deliberations, Kevin Ray Underwood was found guilty of Jamie Rose Bolin’s murder in 2008 and sentenced to death.

Rest In Peace Jamie Rose Bolin.
