GLENDALE, Ariz. -- It's about the size of four thick phone books stacked on top of each other, but the heartbreaking information contained in the mountain of paper is a lot more disturbing than just names, numbers and addresses.

Tuesday morning the Glendale Police Department released a nearly 1,500-page report chronicling the yearlong investigation into the 2011 disappearance and suspected murder of an adorable little 5-year-old girl named Jhessye Shockley.

The massive document contains countless reports from dozens of officers about their roles and findings at various times in the high-profile investigation starting when Jhessye's mother, Jerice Hunter, first called police to report that the little girl was missing from the family's Glendale apartment.

The report also contains dozens of in reports about interviews with the mother and other family members.

Last month, Hunter was arrested and charged with murdering Jhessye despite the fact the child has never been located.
