LAUREL, Md. (WUSA) -- The family of apparent murder-victim Latisha Frazier is trying to cope with a judge's ruling this week that authorities to not have to search for Latisha's remains.
Police believe the 18-year-old mother was lured to a D.C. apartment last year, imprisoned there, murdered, and dismembered before her remains were dumped into a garbage bin and then likely trucked to a large landfill in Virginia.
Police had argued it could take millions of dollars to conduct the search through hundreds of tons of garbage with no likelihood of success and also argued the search was too dangerous to conduct. On Wednesday, a judge agreed.
