The suspicious death of the 12-year-old New Hampshire girl Celina Cass remains a mystery to the investigators as they haven't been able to follow a potential lead in finding out what exactly happened to her on the night she went missing. Jane Young, lead prosecutor, appeared to have lost hopes. She had said on Thursday that she did not expect any new developments in the Celina Cass case in the immediate future.
The investigators are waiting for the routine toxicology report, which is due in the next couple of weeks.
Celina's body was recovered from the Connecticut River on Aug.1, a week after she was reported missing. As the divers recovered the body, reporters and photographers were asked to leave the scene, but there have been reports which said that the dead body was found wrapped in a blanket.
What Exactly Happened that Night?
Celina was reportedly watching "The Secret Life of An American Teenager" on ABC Family Channel with her mother Louisa Noyes in the living room till 9 p.m. on July 25. After the show, Louisa Noyes retired, but Celina kept herself engaged on her computer.
According to a Colebrook Chronicle report, Celina shared a bedroom in the basement of the apartment house with her sister Kayla. Celina's mother Louisa Noyes, step-father Wendell Noyes, family friend Kevin Mullaney and Louisa's mother-in-law Tommie Richards were staying with the family on the night on July 25.
Mullaney came home around midnight, who didn't find Celina in the living room. The next morning Richards left to go to her home by 8:15 a.m. and Louisa left the house to go to work in Colebrook. It was Wendell Noyes who went to wake up Celina for her 9 a.m. appointment at a local hairdresser shop, but couldn't find her in her bed. Fifteen minutes later he rang Louisa to tell her that Celina was not found in the house.
Extensive search for Celina began almost immediately, only to discover her dead body near a PSNH dam on the Connecticut River. Celina's stepfather Wendell Noyes was admitted to a mental health facility in Concord a day after Celina's body was found. Noyes is paranoid schizophrenic and has criminal record of attempted assault on his ex-girlfriend.
