Just in case you don't live in the bay area, I will give you a quick update. 2 weeks ago an 8 year old girl, Sandra Cantu, went missing. This last Monday, April 6th, they found her small body packed into a suitcase that was at the bottom of an irrigation pond.
And last night, Friday April 10th, the Tracy police made an arrest. Of course we all assumed it was going to be another evil male child molester. A woman was arrested. The mother of Sandra's best friend. Her name is Melissa Huckaby and she reported that coffin of a suitcase stolen on the same day that Sandra went missing. It's her suitcase.
Melissa Huckaby lived in that same trailer park and was a Sunday school teacher. I have never believed that just because you call yourself a Christian doesn't mean you are a good person, but most Sunday school teachers are not murderers! I am dying to know the details of this story.
And this excerpt below really gets my imagination flowing:
"The Tracy Press also reported that Huckaby was released Thursday from Sutter Tracy Community Hospital, where she spent several days in intensive care for what she described as "internal bleeding." Huckaby declined to elaborate to the newspaper."
Internal bleeding from what? Did Sandra Cantu make a valiant effort to defend herself and inflict wounds upon this woman? Was there an accident, household or automobile, that Sandra did not survive, but Melissa was injured from? And Melissa Huckaby decided to get rid of Sandra instead of taking responsibility for an accident? Did Melissa Huckaby suffer a miscarriage and take out her grief on somebody else's child? Ok that one is a stretch, I told you I have an active imagination.
Of course there is no valid motive for murdering a little girl. This woman is sick and possibly evil, but we won't know until more details are released. It's just so sad, so very, very sad.
