    AZ - Isabella Grogan-Cannella, 8, Bullhead City, 2 September 2014 - #3

    Isabella Grogan-Cannella: Staring at monsters
    William Pitts, 12 News azcentral.com
    6:14 a.m. MST September 5, 2014

    [...]

    Isabella Grogan-Cannella was buried here. She'd been missing for days and the Bullhead City Police Department had gotten help from almost every agency you can think of: FBI, county sheriffs, even the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. They'd all searched the neighborhood, neighbors searched their own small backyards. There'd been no signs of forced entry, no sign of struggle. Isabella's sister had been home and never heard a thing. She'd gone to the bathroom and when she came back -- Bella was gone. So was her mom's friend Justin Rector.

    Early Thursday morning, Justin James Rector, 26, of Bullhead City, was arrested for kidnapping and first-degree murder, Bullhead City Police said.

    On Wednesday, a shallow grave was discovered by a tracking unit with the Mohave County Search and Rescue Team near Chaparral and Newberry Drive in Bullhead City, which is close to Grogan-Cannella's home. The body has since been identified as the girl's, police said.

    On Tuesday, September 2nd at approximately 1:30 a.m., police were called to the 2400 block of Lakeside Drive. The residents there reported that 8-year-old Isabella Neveah Grogan-Cannella was not in her bed or anywhere in the residence. Police have been canvassing the neighborhood since early this morning and are still conducting numerous interviews.

    Isabella is around 4'8" tall, approximately 80 to 90 lbs. with shoulder length dirty blonde hair and blue eyes. She was last seen wearing a green ruffled sparkly tank top and dark colored shorts. She is also possibly barefoot.

    They did say that. I'm going to get a bit graphic but I don't think it is always so easy to tell if rape occurred. Sometimes it can happen without trauma or DNA evidence.

    Did the ME ever file that she wasn't a victim of SA or was that still under investigation? I'm only asking because that was dodged at the PC and I haven't heard anything else either way, since then.

    Two things have been on my mind all day. The first was probably thought and talked about by multitudes of people already, but I may be able to make sense of it more after I post it, in my own head.

    1. What if and this is only a what if, as nothing that I am aware of points to it...TG and/or RF owed money to someone, supplier, perhaps, and JJR was told that he was to be the so-called "enforcer" and do away with little Bella in lieu of payment and if he didn't, his fate would be what he was supposed to do with her. Either him or her, if you will. What could he do, go to the cops? It could possibly explain him saying he couldn't talk about what he did, when he was arrested.
    and

    2. I hope people have enough respect for Bella to leave her pathetic mother alone during the memorials and funeral.

    Nothing's been released yet. Last official statement said it was still under investigation.

    Let's just say you are not the only one who has come up with this theory .

    Nothing about when the autopsy, specifically, time of death will be released?

    Personally, the time of death is one of the most important pieces of information needed to determine complicity on the part of the parents.

    Maybe it's time to rethink the motivation for this murder. With no sexual assault charges being filed, and the autopsy completed, then one would have to think that the motivation was not sexual. No question JR is demented, a drug addict and all around sick individual but he's not a rapist as far as we know based on the charges.

    So now, we go back to the drugs, money, extortion perhaps, and whatever else was going on in that house.

    No matter what, I can't imagine kidnapping a child, and killing them over something that had nothing to do with the child. It was all about getting back at the mother for something? The family? The step dad?

    What's the motive?

    I believe that everyone living in that house, friends and family know the motive.

    We're not done yet.

    I tend to think it is much more simplistic than that.

    I believe that there was active drug use in the home that evening when a dispute ensued between JJR and TG/RF over money for the drugs owed when they ran out. That would explain the late night outing, the lack of honesty when LE asked about possible scenarios for the victims whereabouts, and the messages between the suspect and mother. I have a feeling JJR 'snapped' and sadly, this is the result. Perhaps the suspect never set out to murder Bella, but drugs, anger and greed prevailed.

    I don't see these people involved in a deeper conspiracy, but rather a drug dispute gone wrong.

    There was a case I followed here, missing girl, Jackson, Ohio (no name, a child who survived her abduction and sexual assault). She was abducted from her front porch late at night by a 'friend' of the family's. She was found naked and banged up miles away the next day.

    Dude was arrested and charged right away for the kidnapping and felonious assault. (He had left her for dead, thankfully, he did a bad job on the dead part.)

    The sexual assault aspect was up in the air just like in this case. It took at least a few weeks for them to come back and add sexual assault of a child, but they did.

    The case has still not gone to trial, so I don't know what the hold up was on the sexual assault charge. The family was not quiet on Facebook and they were outright saying she was raped long before the charges came. But the prosecution did wait on adding them.

    I hate that this happened to Bella, and I'd hate it even more if I found out she was raped prior to being strangled. And I hate contemplating this.

    But what if there was evidence to sexual assault and preliminary tests showed more than one male DNA sample? You'd hold off charging on the sexual assault then until you knew who the DNA belonged to, correct?

    Yikes, I hope it's not that.

    If she was out in the desert heat for two days, I wonder if that would affect the sexual assault determination.

    ETA: It was actually TWO MONTHS from when he (Zach Dunn) was originally arrested for the kidnapping and felonious assault, to when the rape charges were added and he was indicted (while still sitting in jail). He was arrested July 29th 2013, and the rape charges were added/included on the indictment on September 27th.

    No I was pretty certain that I wasn't. Just seems like a logical thought, to me. I thought maybe if I put it into words, I could better wrap it up in my head.
