The family of Christina Nance is suspecting foul play after the body of the 29-year-old was found on Thursday in an unused police van in Huntsville, Alabama. According to AL.com, an officer found the remains of the missing woman in the van while walking outside the Huntsville Public Safety Complex.
Although the initial assessment from the coroner’s office concludes that there were no visible signs of trauma or foul play, the family is still questioning the circumstances surrounding the young woman's death.
"We do not believe that our sister would just randomly walk to a van and climb in it. First of all, why wasn't the van locked on police property?" Christina's sister, Whitney Nance, told WSFA. "We have no idea how she ended up there out of all places, why there out of all places, why there.”
The family is requesting video footage from the cameras installed in the parking lot where the van was parked. Latausha Nance, Christina’s sister, said police have told the family that the cameras may not have been able to capture the area where the van was parked, News 19 reports. Christina's loved ones also said police haven’t given them any information about how long her body remained in the van.
The 29-year-old is remembered as a quiet, sweet girl who “never bothered anybody.”
She loved to sing and dance while she was around friends and family. Latausha said her sister seemed happy when she last saw her two weeks ago as the two were sitting in a car together.
“I just looked back at her and she was just smiling,” Latausha said. “And I said, ‘Christina, why are you smiling like that?’ and she just said, ‘Oh nothing, it’s nothing.’ That’s the last memory I have of my sister.”
The family has set up a GoFundMe page to cover funeral expenses.
“She was just very positive, fun-loving and caring person, very sweet, very sweet,” Whitney said.
