No Arrests, Few Answers In Death Of 6-Year Old Saginaw Girl
SAGINAW (CBSDFW.COM) – 12 pages of search warrants were released describing hundreds of items taken from the Saginaw home of Alanna Gallagher, the 6-year old girl who was found dead last week, her body found on the street – stuffed inside a tarp.
Investigators removed materials from the family’s home and vehicles that could be used to bind hands or feet.
The warrants say that arm and leg restraints, including belts were also removed from the home. Plastic bags, toilet paper, duct tape, bedding and even water from a hot tub were also taken by the FBI.
9 computers were also seized along with other equipment.
For several hours Monday police blocked off the entrance to the neighborhood where Alanna’s body was found. They were stopping and talking to anyone about the night the girl disappeared.
“They asked do I know anything or have I seen any cars…that’s about it” said resident Jamie Moreno.
Alanna’s grandmother spoke with CBS 11 New saying her granddaughter was very friendly and that she never met a stranger – indicating the child was outgoing and trusting.
She also said that she’s not surprised about what was seized by investigators inside her son’s home because Karl Gallagher (Alanna’s father) is in the military and has those things around the house.
Officials have said repeatedly that Alanna’s parents are not suspects.
The little girl’s funeral is scheduled for Thursday.
