According to a report on KRON, the Clover Road Baptist Church, where FBI and police spent days searching for evidence in the slaying of 8-year-old Sandra Cantu, is resuming its normal service schedule.
The pastor at the church is the grandfather of Melissa Huckaby, who is charged with kidnapping, raping and murdering the Tracy girl sometime on March 27.
The church is two miles away from the mobile home park where Sandra and the suspect lived.
Huckaby was arrested two days before Easter. Her family members gathered that day at the church and her father Brian Lawless gave a sermon and spoke to media, but on Wednesday media was not allowed inside, according to the KRON report.
Sandra’s body was found April 6 inside a suitcase in a nearby irrigation pond.
