The Mendocino County Sheriff's office said in a statement that a couple vacationing along the coast saw a possible body, which was pulled from the surf Saturday afternoon by a third bystander.
The body found on Saturday appeared to be that of an African-American female but her age and a positive identity could not be determined, the sheriff's office said.
Authorities believe the body may be that of one of the missing girls from the crash. Though authorities have recovered the bodies of adoptive mothers Sarah and Jennifer Hart, and three of their adoptive children, Markis Hart, 19; Jeremiah Hart, 14; and Abigail Hart, 14, their three other adoptive children-Devonte Hart, 15; Sierra Hart, 15; and Hannah Hart; 16-have yet to be located. An autopsy will be conducted on Tuesday.
Right now, police are treating their deaths as a murder-suicide as they believe Jennifer drove off the cliff intentionally. The vehicle was found upside down and partially submerged at the bottom of the cliff, and authorities recovered the bodies of two women and three of their six adopted children. There were no skid or brake marks, said Allman, the Mendocino County sheriff.
Preliminary data from the air bag module and the car's software indicate the vehicle stopped at the turnout and then accelerated for about 70 feet off the cliff, Baarts says.More news: With trade war, U.S. and China stumble into the Thucydides Trap: Kemp
The Hart family moves to a home in Woodland, Washington, neighbor Bruce DeKalb said.
There were no signs of the other two children, authorities said Saturday. She was sentenced to community service and one year of probation.
"All the research has been done by me, New Zealand police wouldn't even tell us what part of India she flew into, no information was given to us". Devonte captured the world's attention in 2014, when he was photographed sobbing in the arms of a white police officer in Portland, where people had gathered in support of civil rights protests in Ferguson, Missouri.
Argyropoulos said she was told after she made the report that OR officials had interviewed the children but it was apparent that each child had been coached by their mothers on what to say. During a Sunday night teleconference with media, CHP said there was no note left behind and no obvious indicator in the Hart's home to explain what happened.
"I'm to the point where I no longer am calling this an accident".
