BOCA RATON — West Palm Beach police say that evidence in the death of a 10-year-old girl found dead in the back of her father's truck shows that she likely died in Miami.
But police spokesman Chase Scott wouldn't say Thursday whether investigators believe Nubia Docter died at her adoptive parents' Miami home. No charges have been filed in her death.
Her father, Jorge Barahona, has pleaded not guilty to the attempted first-degree murder of her twin brother. Victor Docter was found Feb. 14 in the cabin of the truck along Interstate 95, doused with a toxic chemical. His sister's body was found in the back of the truck, also doused with a chemical.
Victor was released from the hospital this week.
Miami-Dade police declined comment Thursday about the investigation.
