Gloucester County Prosecutor Sean Dalton has not yet labeled the death a homicide. Speaking to reporters Tuesday, Dalton says if someone is responsible for her death, they'll be held accountable.

The discovery of the body came about 48 hours after her family reported her missing and two hours after community members gathered blocks away for a candlelight vigil filled with both tears and hope.

Officials have not released the cause because the autopsy results are pending.
