What would make a human being kill a helpless 8-year-old child and stuff her in a suitcase? The murder of a schoolgirl, Sandra Cantu of Tracy, California has remained baffling to police authorities even as they've apprehended the lone suspect, Melissa Huckaby, a Sunday School teacher.
I watched the report over Fox News last night and it really ripped my heart when they showed a CCTV camera capturing the child skipping on her way to Huckaby's house, apparently to play with the suspect's 5-year-old daughter. She was full of life. Who could have known that she was about to meet her gruesome end that day?
Police are still investigating the motives behind the murder while the suspect is being held without bail.
