Oh, I should’ve clarified- I think unfortunately she took sweet Elle’s body (already passed, killed at home? Ugh hurts to type that) in her car to the river/park to dispose of it there. Or honestly she could’ve taken her body anywhere and then she herself went to the river to end her own life but wasn’t successful for whatever reason. All of this- Elle’s life taken, whatever state of mind Lisa was in to carry this out, Lisa’s eventual suicide- is beyond horrible. So so sad.
It makes me wonder if the child's father may have a new family or new girlfriend? We've seen cases here where a parent tries to get revenge upon their child's other parent by the ultimate horror like this...

When the reports came out about the mom being at the lake/park for so long, I believed she had either hurt Elle and used the lake to dispose of the remains/evidence, but I’m thrown about finding hair and blood at the home. What would the mother have disposed of at the home that would have that evidence, and left it behind rather than disposing of whatever it was at the lake assuming that is where she also left sweet Elle? Was the hair and blood perhaps found on a ‘weapon’ of some sort? But why not throw that in the lake as well? My heart breaks for this precious baby, but there’s something that isn’t adding up for me. Praying Elle can be found and laid to rest. All just questions, speculation, and MOO.

At first I thought she may have disposed of Elle in the river, but since they found hair and blood in a trash can at the home, I think she may have dismembered her and scattered her remains either in the river or in garbage cans throughout the city. Police said they aren't sure they will be able to locate Elle, which to me seems to point towards Elle being in a landfill rather than the river, but if that were the case, why would her mom have gone to that park multiple times (unless she was trying to take her own life by drowning or disposing of other evidence)?

Possible some event caused a psychotic break? She's paranoid and she's thinking that Elle will be taken away from her. It looked like she truly loved her little girl so the thought of losing custody, in her state of mind made her think the girl would be better off in God's arms or in Heaven. The wandering around could just be her out of touch with what's going on around her. Maybe she finally came back down to earth and realized what she had done and that's when she took her own life. I want to know about the father. Was he a part of their life? Were they on good terms? I'm also wondering if she had some kind of illness that was not diagnosed? I don't know. This just doesn't make sense but I know that seemingly loving parents harm their children. It happens.
