Investigators walk the scene which is the third they have in 3 months with no leads (June 2012)
June 5, 6:30 am
A man casts his pole out into the Merrimack river by the UMass Lowell Bellegarde Boathouse...his line catches on something and when looks over the wall to try to see if he can get the line loose he sees that it's caught on the body of a child.
Sierra pulls into the parking lot by the boathouse now corded off by crime scene tape. All UMass rowing and kayak rentals have been postponed for the day while the investigation is underway.
C.O.D. strangulation, no aspiration of fluid into air passages, dead before she hit the water
Other injuries: anal tearing, bite marks, cigarette burns
