Mikaela Lynch
The 9-year-old girl who was found dead yesterday near her family's vacation home in Lake County was a San Francisco resident who attended the special needs program at Sunset Elementary.

The Examiner reported this morning that the San Francisco Unified School District is in the process of letting students know about the death of Mikaela Lynch, who was last seen Sunday in the backyard of the Clearlake home. She had been playing outside with her brother then walked away and was later seen running up the street naked, according to press reports.

After a long search, police found her dead in the muddy waters, but do not suspect foul play. Mikaela, who had the mental capacity of a 1-year-old and was not able to speak, loved the water but did not know how to swim.

SFUSD Spokeswoman Heidi Anderson said in a statement to the Examiner that "in the coming days the school will find ways for the community to honor Mikaela."

An autistic girl was seen running up a street naked before being found dead in muddy waters and yet police don't suspect foul play?  Did they even bother thinking that it might be the dirty work of a pedo-pervert?
