You may recall yesterday's item on the theft of a 2-year-old girl's body from her Connecticut grave and its discovery by fishermen in a New Jersey river.
Now authorities say that evidence indicates the theft might have been part of a ritualistic act, possibly involving Santeria or Palo Mayombe. Santeria is from the Caribbean and is a mix of African beliefs and Catholicism, while Palo Mayombe is originally from the Congo region of Africa.
The investigation continues. Police said the girl had died from a rare, pre-existing condition and had been properly buried.
