Candlelight Vigil Held for Missing Hardin Girl Found Dead
A candlelight vigil has been held to honor a Montana teenager who was missing for weeks before her body was found by investigators. The Billings Gazette reports 16-year-old Selena Not Afraid was found Monday southwest of the Interstate 90 rest stop where she was last seen Jan. 1. Not Afraid was located after a systematic grid search by the Department of the Interior.
About 100 people attended the vigil Tuesday at Swords Park in Billings where a memorial was decorated with flowers and candles. Big Horn County Sheriff's Office says foul play was not suspected but also has not been ruled out. Five adults who were with Not Afraid on the day she was last seen have cooperated with law enforcement. An autopsy was scheduled for Wednesday at the state crime laboratory.
