Funeral for slain girl, 14, as probe continues

Posted: Updated:


Family and friends of a 14-year-old Michigan girl have gathered for her funeral as investigators continue hunting for the killer.

Joggers found the body of April Millsap on July 24 in a drainage ditch along a trail in Armada. The recent middle school graduate disappeared while walking her dog.

April's funeral was held Friday at Armada's St. Mary Mystical Rose Catholic Church.

The Detroit News says a number of cars had pink bows affixed to them in honor of April, and the funeral program detailed how she loved animals and writing poetry and short stories.

On Thursday, police and FBI agents were stopping vehicles entering and leaving the southeastern Michigan village.

State police say no one's being held in the killing.
