I can't find any more mention of her murder or the investigation. It's like they just stopped after 6 weeks. I knew this little girl. She was in my oldest daughters class in kindergarden & 1st grade, attented her B-Day parties and even a couple of sleep overs at my house. I had heard rumor that the boyfriend committed suicide shortly after Erin's death but have never been able to confirm that.
