DETECTIVES have confirmed the worst kept secret in New Hampshire: 11-year-old Celina Cass was murdered. For the past two months cops have called her disappearance and death suspicious after she vanished from her room in the middle of the night and then was found floating in the Connecticut River a week later. Now, cops say they know what killed the popular girl but aren't making those facts public because it could hurt the investigation. A reward has been offered for information leading to an arrest. No suspects have been named. Her cause of death was determined through information from the investigation and toxicology tests. Mom Luisia Cass told The Associated Press she had no comment after leaving the Coos County attorney's office in Lancaster. She was accompanied Thursday by a friend and her 13-year-old daughter, who was
clutching a stuffed panda bear.
