I've noticed this story has all but disappeared.   Wonder why they are still being hush hush? 

Welcome !

I don't know for sure. There's been some rumors on Facebook, but we try to avoid them here.  

Last I knew, police were asking for patience to allow the investigation to be done thoroughly and correctly and were not releasing more to ensure that happens. 

If it means justice for this poor kid, it's worth it.

Welcome Momof2

I agree that  it seems hush-hush. I haven't seen any FB rumors, but have a gut instinct on why no information would be released, and may never be.

 

Not even publishing a death notice/obit is the most unsettling to me. Sensitive or not, it's wrong to carry on as if she'd never existed.
