Body Discovered Near Site of California Cliff Crash That Killed Family

Body Discovered Near Site of California Cliff Crash That Killed Family

The Mendocino County Sheriff's Office announced Saturday that a body has been discovered near the site where an SUV containing members of the Hart family drove off a cliff and into the Pacific Ocean late last month.

A couple vacationing reportedly saw the body and pulled it from the surf before calling authorities.

"Positive identification will most likely be done by DNA analysis, a process that can take several weeks", the Sherriff's Office said.

But there has been no trace of Devonte, 15, Hannah, 16, and Sierra, 12, and authorities now believe the three missing children were also in the vehicle.

The children's adoptive parents, Jennifer and Sarah Hart, and three of their siblings were confirmed dead after the crash, police said.

"They say (the child) has been constantly going through food issues, where (child) will steal people's food at school or eat out of garbage cans or off the floor", according to the police report.

Authorities have said that data from the vehicle's software suggested the crash was deliberate.

United Nations calls for restraint ahead of renewed Palestinian protests at Gaza fence
Israel tried to douse the burning rubber with jets of water directed over defensive dirt mounds on its side of the border. Israel argues that Hamas could have ended the suffering of Gaza's 2 million people by disarming and renouncing violence.

On Wednesday, March 28, Mendocino County Sheriff Tom Allman said investigators were perplexed by the scene at the top of the cliff.

The family of an autistic woman who fled to India are criticising the Ministry of Foreign Affairs for refusing to help them bring the woman home. She said she was told there was nothing more the Oregon Department of Human Services could do because there was not enough evidence to make a case.

"Information obtained through interviews with family and friends indicated it was rare for the family to be apart, especially while traveling", a news release from the sheriff's office says.

She told police she had spanked the child over the edge of the bathtub because of the child's behavior.

Days before the family left Washington, child services officials there had begun investigating the Harts for "alleged abuse or neglect".

Bruce and Dana DeKalb, the family's next-door neighbors in Woodland, Washington, called child welfare officials last month because the couple's 15-year-old son, Devonte, had been coming to their house nearly every day for a week, asking for food. Officials said the cause of death was unknown. They said they have not found suicide notes.
