Eleven-year-old Celina Cass has been dead for a year, so why haven't there been any arrests or even updates in her tragic case? This case was extremely high-profile last year when the little girl was reported missing after last being seen in her own homeÂ—where she was allegedly living in a "party house" of ill reputation. Her stepfather became the focus of intense scrutiny when he not only refused to be cooperative, but had a meltdown and had to be checked into a psychiatric care facility shortly before investigators found her body. With there being so much suspicion hovering over the 11-year-old child's stepfather, one would think it wouldn't take a year for there to be any closure in this case.
Officials on this case claim that the investigation is still "open and active," but the details behind the circumstances of her death are still a secret. It's known that Celina Cass was murdered, but police won't reveal how. Will there ever be closure in this case? Will the adults in the home ever come forward with what they know, if anything? If you Google the discussion forum conversations of this case, you will find a wealth of information that makes it hard to believe that it's been a year without any arrests. Hopefully this long wait comes with a huge payout for the investigators on this case.
