CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - Two weeks after searchers pulled the body of 11-year-old Celina Cass from the Connecticut River near her house, the lack of an arrest or answers to questions about how she died has cast a pall over her New Hampshire hometown.

People in Stewartstown are waiting for answers about the girl, justice for her family and peace of mind for themselves.

The police's inability to identify or charge a suspect, an autopsy that couldn't pinpoint the cause of death and lingering fears that a killer is at large are hanging over folks.

Police say the investigation is active, with the results of toxicology tests on the girl's body pending. Experts say that may go a long way toward helping identify or charge a suspect.

Cass vanished July 25 or July 26 from her home after being last seen on her computer in her bedroom. Her body was found Aug. 1.
