Texas authorities are investigating the death of 14-year-old Kaytlynn Cargill, who disappeared a few days ago while walking her dog. Today, her body was found in a landfill on the banks of Dallas, as reported by People magazine. It was a forensic doctor who identified that the remains found belonged to the little girl.
It was last Monday that the family announced the disappearance of the young woman after half an hour had passed and she did not return home. "We are surprised and saddened by this tragic news," said the police. "We will continue with aplomb, we will find the person or persons responsible for the death of Kaytlynn."
Kaytlynn was last seen walking her pet on Monday near her home on Oak Creek Lane, her parents reported her missing and a massive search was conducted with authorities and through brochures distributed throughout the area.
"The dog was found tied to a fence in the nearby dog park," says a statement issued by authorities. "A friend of the teenager said Kaytlynn asked others to look at the dog for a minute but never returned."
It is unclear whether the coroner has yet determined the cause of death for the girl.
More than 100 people gathered Thursday at Central Junior High to honor Cargill, who was a seventh grader, WFAA reported.
A GoFundMe page has been created for the teen's family.
