Celina Cass Autopsy Completed, Leaves Questions Unanswered


Community Honors Celina Cass with Vigil

As police continue to investigate Celina's death, her community held a candlelight vigil Monday night in West Stewartstown. The crowd sang "Amazing Grace" and Celina's friends spoke about how much they would miss her. Celina's best friend collapsed in tears.

Everyone wrote messages on balloons to Celina -- "see you in heaven" -- and let them go. One purple balloon, Celina's favorite color, got stuck in a tree over the vigil.

Celina's family did not attend the vigil, but spoke to the media about the week-long search, and thanked all of those who searched for her.

"Fish and Game, Attorney General, FBI, they were all there when we needed them," Walter Laro, the young girl's grandfather said. "The news media was very good to us, very good to us and they really helped out as much as they could. All we're looking for now is answers."

Investigators received more than 500 tips before finding Celina's body about a quarter mile from her home in West Stewartstown, N.H., a hamlet of about 800 people.
