Viewing And Funeral Planned For Somer Thompson

Vigils and fundraisers give way to more somber observances this week for 7-year-old Somer Thompson.

Investigators had more than a thousand tips but are still trying to figure out what happened when the child disappeared on her walk home from a north Florida school last week. Her body was found in a Georgia landfill Wednesday.

A public viewing is planned Monday and funeral services are scheduled for Tuesday. Graveside services and the burial will be private.

At a fundraiser Sunday for Somer's family, children played in a bounce house as adults watched carefully. They vowed to find the girl's killer and raised about $18,500 so her mother doesn't have to go back to work immediately.
