Solomons auction today is to benefit girl, 8

January 15, 2009|By The Washington Post

Phillip Garrett remembers the day he spotted her walking down the street - her pink nightgown caked with blood, her body covered in bruises. He recalls watching as investigators descended on the 8-year-old's house in Calvert County on Sept. 26, where they found the remains of her two sisters in a freezer.

Garrett organized an auction to help the child. The "Our Project Charity Benefit" will be today from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Hilton Garden Inn in Solomons.

Authorities found the bodies of two girls, who would have been 9 and 11, in Renee Bowman's basement freezer. Bowman is being held in the Calvert County Detention Center as the child abuse case makes its way through court.
