Jamie Seeger – killed in early-morning shooting. Wednesday, July 25, 2012
Seeger moved to Citrus County in 1999 and graduated from the Citrus County School District and later from the Withlacoochee Technical Institute, where she studied corrections.
During her career, she worked for Corrections Corporation of America at the Lecanto Detention Facility. Most recently, Wendy Moore, her mother, said, she worked as a federal corrections officer in Sumter County. However, it has been several years since she worked at the federal facility, according to the Citrus County Sheriff’s Office.
Seeger is the mother of a 10-month-old boy and a 4-year-old girl who are being raised by their father, his parents and Moore. Seeger and her husband were married in 2008 and have recently separated according to her mother.
Jamie Seeger, who authorities said died Wednesday from multiple gunshot wounds, had been paid to give sheriff’s detectives information on drug dealers and was in fear for her safety. Miss Moore and Mr. Seeger’s attorney, Bill Grant, stated.
Grant said he is seeking information from the sheriff’s office, state attorney and Citrus County Clerk’s Office he said would shed light on Seeger’s relationship with detectives and circumstances of her death.
“We believe her death is a direct relation to her working with the sheriff’s department,” Grant said.
Citrus County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Gail Tierney says they have no leads or suspects, and she refuses to say whether Jamie was working undercover for the sheriffs office.
Seeger, 27, was discovered in her Chrysler Crossfire about 3 a.m. Wednesday near the intersection of North Reynolds Avenue and West Cyrus Street, about a mile and a half east of Crystal River.
Detectives said Seeger was in the driver’s seat and dead of gunshot wounds.
Jamie Seeger’s name was listed as a witness in several recent drug arrest court cases. Moore said one or two of these defendants visited Seeger, though Grant did not know details of those conversations.
Moore said her daughter told sheriff’s detectives she was in fear for her safety.
Eric Seeger, who was separated from his wife, knew Jamie was being paid by the sheriff’s office to provide information, She assisted in the arrests of 23 people on drug charges. Grant said.
Grant said he planned to seek records from the sheriff’s office, including any confidential-informant contracts it had with Jamie Seeger. He said he would also request receipts that showed payments to Seeger from the sheriff’s office. Jamie Seeger maiden name was Jamie Gamble. Her body was cremated today, July 30, 2012.
