FOX: Police searched a church and continued to question neighbors Tuesday in Tracy, Calif., as part of the investigation into the death of an 8-year-old girl who disappeared from her mobile home and was found dead in a suitcase dumped into a nearby pond.

Clover Road Baptist Church was searched for clues to unravel the mystery of little Sandra Cantu's death.

Sgt. Tony Sheneman said other warrants in the case are sealed and that he would not answer questions about them in a press conference Tuesday evening. He also denied media reports that the church's pastor, Lane Lawless, was a suspect in the girl's death. Police have not named any suspects in the case.

An autopsy is underway, and Sheneman told reporters he did not know when police would have results.

Police also searched a location Monday night at the mobile home park where Sandra lived and was last seen March 27, he said.
