“Someone there knows what happened, or knows someone who was involved, and we ask them to do the right thing,” said Sergeant Tatar.

“She has some really hard and good days,” she told News 4. “She just has a lot of questions I can’t answer. She asked me where Dad was. She asked me why he was not there. And I’m just saying that her dad’s body hasn’t recovered. “
