46-year-old Virginia Sims remains behind bars without bond for the drowning death of her 6-year-old granddaughter Alexis Walker. A frantic call rang through 911 dispatch around seven o’clock Monday night. A call residents describe as gruesome. “I can’t imagine anyone doing that to a child,” says Colquitt County resident Jenny Sauls. But co-workers of Virginia Sims say this isn’t the first time she put Alexis in harm’s way. “I heard she burnt the house down and she ran the car into a tree with her and the little girl in the car,” says Sims’ co-worker Tatiana Hill. A three page police report indicates Sims was charged with first degree arson and another two page report says she was involved in a single car crash with Alexis inside.
