Mississippi Teenager Is Burned Alive in Her Car

A 19-year-old girl from Mississippi was reportedly set on fire Saturday night and has died at Regional Medical Center in Memphis. Police officers are baffled though as to the motive of the crime and who should be held accountable for it. Recent high school graduate Jessica Chambers was reportedly found engulfed in flames in her car in what investigators called "the most brutal crime" they'd ever seen.

Jessica lived with her mother, Lisa Chambers, who says she last spoke with her daughter at around 6:48 p.m. Saturday when the teen said she was going to get her car washed and grab a bite to eat. She told her mom she loved her and that she would see her in a little while.

A surveillance camera caught Jessica at a convenience store at one point, but police are not revealing what else she did that night or the results of her autopsy report.

Police did reveal that a flammable liquid was used to start the fire and that 98 percent of the girl's body was burned, with only the bottom of her feet left untouched. The suspects reportedly poured the lighter fluid down her throat and in her nose and knocked her out -- leaving her with a gash on her head.

When they arrived at the scene, police say the teen was conscious enough to whisper a few words that may have provided police with some clue as to who committed this sick, horrific crime. They have not revealed what was said.

As of right now, there are no suspects in custody. Investigators are checking Jessica's cellphone records to see whom she contacted before the incident and are questioning those friends and relatives.

I can't imagine how this teen's family feels knowing she died in so much pain -- and for what reason? What motive could there possibly be to do something so twisted and psychotic to a young woman? Hoping police catch the person or people responsible for this as soon as possible so that Jessica's family can, at the very least, receive a little bit of closure.

Why do you think someone would do this to this teen girl?
