The 12-year-old amateur sleuth was furious about a break in at her late great-grandmother's house in Atlanta, so she used the investigative skills she'd learned on a Junior District Attorney camp this summer.
Cops had told Jessica Maple's family, that there were no signs of forced entry at the Atlanta, GA home, but after encouraging her mom to let her have a look, the child detective embarrassed the real cops.
She told ABC News: "I went to the side of the house and looked at the garage. The windows were broken. There were finger prints by the glass. Everything was ramshackled. There were clothes everywhere."
