Records illustrate detectives' suspicions

LEESBURG -- Police released new documents Wednesday showing investigators became suspicious of Trenton Duckett's mother the night the 2-year-old was reported missing.

A sworn statement from Leesburg Senior Detective Ian Thornton shows Melinda Duckett "was clearing out the apartment, emptying the refrigerator as if moving from the residence."

Police also sifted through trash dumped that night by one of two men who had been watching a video with Duckett and found "numerous articles relative to caring for a child," according to the statement, which was used to secure a search warrant for the woman's apartment.
