COLEBROOK, N.H. (AP) - The mother of the New Hampshire girl found dead in the Connecticut River last summer says she's frustrated that police are unable to provide answers about her daughter's murder.
Luisia Noyes told the Boston Herald the case is for her "frustrating, haunting and unbearable."
Noyes' daughter, 11-year-old Celina Cass, disappeared in July from her West Stewartstown home. Her body was later found in the Connecticut River.
Noyes told the Herald police would not allow her to see her daughter's body, even after a funeral director's restorative efforts, nor would they allow her to see the blanket the body was wrapped in.
Last month, the New Hampshire attorney general's office classified Celina's death as a homicide, but investigators say they don't have enough evidence to make an arrest.
