I have No Words: Sandra Cantu's killer a Woman.
Little Sandra Cantu's suspected murderer is behind bars today.
28 year old Melissa Lawless Huckaby, the granddaughter of a local pastor was arrested for the kidnap and murder of the 8 year old girl, who was found stuffed in a suitcase 10 days after her disappearance from her trailer park home.
Melissa is a Sunday school teacher and a mother of a 5 year old little girl. Her story to Law Enforcement was proven false as she claimed Sandra came over to visit with her own daughter and later left, at the very same time she claims her suitcase, which she left in her driveway was stolen. She reported the suitcase missing earlier this week, investigators say this was a lie and it was the very suitcase Sandra was found in.
Investigators have indicated they believe Sandra was dead before she was even reported missing. They also announced they are NOT looking for any other suspects.
What was the motive here?
There are rumors about this woman drugging a child 6 months ago. Was that Sandra? Or another victim.
Are you surprised it is a woman?
A female, non-relative child murderer.
Investigators says she incriminated herself many times during the investigation and finally last night under questioning she reluctantly realized the jig was up.
Rest In Peace Sandra and my heart goes out to the Cantu family.
