Christina Nance's Family Demanding Answers After She Was Found Dead in Unused Police Van

·1 min read

The family of Christina Nance is demanding answers after her body was found one week ago in an old unused police van outside the Huntsville Police Department in Alabama.

According to the Washington Post, Nance’s body was discovered on Oct. 7, five days after the 29-year-old was reported missing. An officer walking past the van, which police said was last used in March, noticed her body. Nearly two weeks later, her family still doesn’t know how she ended up there in the first place.

Last Monday, an autopsy performed by Madison County Coroner Tyler Berryhill found “no foul play was involved in the death nor any findings of trauma.” However, Nance’s official cause of death is pending further investigation.

Surveillance footage released by the Huntsville Police Department shows Nance going into the van parked outside police headquarters on Sept. 25.

“We used that van to transport prisoners,” Deputy Police Chief Dwayne McCarver told local news outlet WAFF. “Once you’re in that van, you can’t get out of that van. Somebody has to let you out of the van.”

However, Nance’s family isn’t buying it.

“We do not believe that our sister would just randomly walk to a van and climb in it,” Christina’s sister Whitney told WAFF. “First of all, why wasn’t the van locked on police property?”
