TRACY - Sources have confirmed to FOX40 News that they believe murder suspect Melissa Huckaby killed 8-year-old Sandra Cantu inside the church where her grandfather is pastor.
It's the latest in a case that has affected an entire nation, and left those who live near Clover Road Baptist Church, unable to comprehend that something so heinous could happen in a place of worship.
News of the church, which is just a couple hundred yards from the mobile home park where Sandra and her alleged killer live, was a grim detail Sandra's family had to cope with on Easter Sunday.
Sandra vanished from outside her home March 27th. Her body was discovered in an irrigation pool a week ago today, and early Saturday, police arrested Huckaby, who is a Bible teacher at the church and the mother of Sandra's best friend.
