The mother should be a “person of interest” too. When the stepfather didn’t show up to pick her up at the airport, she waited until sometime the next morning to call police. Her 4-year-old daughter who’d recently had brain surgery was missing, and she didn’t see this as an emergency???
And why haven’t we seen any mention of this unfortunate child’s actual father? Is he dead? In prison? Mom has no idea who actually provided the sperm?
I’m pretty sure this little girl is in a much better place now, than she ever was during her short life.
