ORANGE PARK, FL (WFLX) - New developments in the death of 7-year-old Somer Thompson. A Mississippi man has been arrested on child pornography charges and named as a person of interest in the case.

You may remember, the Florida girl disappeared on her way home from school last fall. Her body was found two days later in a Georgia landfill.

Investigators say until recently, 24-year-old Jared Harold lived in a home near Thompson.

So far, officials have refused to reveal how Somer died; however, say, they've pursued thousands of leads during the four month investigation.
