LAUDERHILL, Fla. (AP) — Police are looking into reports that the mother of two young girls found dead in a South Florida canal was offering to baptize people in the canal a day earlier.
Lauderhill police identified the sisters Wednesday as 7-year-old Daysha Hogan and 9-year-old Destiny Hogan.
Investigators identified the girls’ mother, Tinessa Hogan, as a possible person of interest.
Hogan has been taken into custody, but no criminal charges have been filed.
Destiny’s body was spotted Tuesday afternoon outside a condominium complex in Lauderhill, which is near Fort Lauderdale.
Daysha’s body was found just before 9 p.m., not far from where the first body was located.
