WEST STEWARTSTOWN, N.H. (AP) - The stepfather of a New Hampshire girl whose body was pulled from the Connecticut River on Aug. 1 says he had nothing to do with her disappearance and death.

Wendell Noyes told WMUR-TV that he discovered that 11-year-old Celina Cass was missing the morning after she was last seen on the family computer on July 25. He says the door to the duplex in West Stewartstown had been left unlocked the night before and that someone else was in the apartment after he and Celina's mother, Luisia Cass, went to bed.

Celina Cass' death has been ruled a homicide.

An autopsy failed to pinpoint how she died. Toxicology tests are pending.

There have been no arrests.

Noyes initially spoke to reporters about Celina's disappearance but later stopped speaking out.
