The city of North Port’s police chief says he’s awaiting autopsy results before revealing how six year old Coralrose Fullwood died. The child’s body was discovered Sunday around noon – about six hours after her parents reported her missing.
Police Chief Terry Lewis says about 30 officers are working around the clock to find out who killed Coralrose Fullwood. He says they’ve received about 20 leads –but no arrest in imminent. Until an arrest is made, he urges caution.
“So, we’re telling parents please be diligent in what you do. Use an abundance of caution, which you should be doing every day.
Coralrose Fullwood was a student at Toledo Blade Elementary School. Counselors were on hand to help students and teachers deal with her death. About 100 of the school’s 14 hundred students stayed home on Monday. The school was operating under partial lockdown – mostly officials said - to assure students they were safe. WGCU's Valerie Alker has more.
