Tucson authorities have confirmed that the body of missing child, Isabel Celis, has been found. This update comes approximately five years after the six-year-old child went missing from her family's residence. Now that the child has been found, albeit under horrifying circumstances, the case must move forward so that justice can be served. Will we ever find out who killed this missing child, or will the answers behind her death remain buried for more years to come?

Police in Tucson say that remains identified as Isabel Celis were located in a remote area of Pima County, Arizona. The exact location of the grisly discovery has not been revealed by detectives, as they continue to investigate the circumstances of the discovery of Isabel's body. They are also not answering questions regarding specifics of the location -- such as whether or not it was in close(ish) proximity from where she vanished in 2012.

Over the course of the past five years, public suspicion has hovered mostly over the family of Isabel Celis. In particular, her father has been held under intense scrutiny. That's because of his incredibly suspicious behavior surrounding the disappearance of his own daughter -- whom was last seen by him. Paired with the fact that evidence of potential violence was found in the home, the man's behavior hasn't helped him. To make matters more suspicious, CPS in Arizona reportedly ordered that the child's father move out of the home -- separating him from his wife and other children -- not long after Isabel disappeared.

So does that mean the person behind Isabel's death is someone close to home? It very well could mean that. However, authorities in Tucson have not specified anything in their investigation on which to speculate. For all that is known, Isabel Celis could have fallen victim to an opportunistic stranger who gained access to her family's home.

Hopefully we won't have to wait another five or more years to find out what happened to this once-missing child. 
A Florida woman has been arrested, after police say she unlawfully filmed sex acts between residents at a nursing home, using a popular social media platform. The Dreamin' Demon reports that 20-year-old Alexis Williams has been slapped with a variety of charges in association with the incidents.

Police say the incidents reportedly happened several months ago at the Bristol Court Assisted Living Facility in Pinellas County. They say the 20-year-old employee of the retirement home used Snapchat to film sexual acts between an 81-year-old woman and a 59-year-old man -- both residents of the facility.

Authorities say that they became aware of the unlawful acts of voyeurism when a Snapchat follower of the Florida woman alerted the nursing home of what they believed was happening. Of course, the facility had no choice but to contact the police and report their own findings -- which included security footage showing the 20-year-old employee recording the elderly residents with her phone.

Authorities say that they have a mountain of evidence against the Florida woman -- including an alleged confession. They say the woman openly admitted to filming the nursing home residents having sex, for the fun of it. They also say they possess records provided by Snapchat, which prove that the woman used the social media platform to record the sex acts. However, Alexis Williams claims that they don't have any evidence against her.

Meanwhile, it should be noted that the 81-year-old woman and 59-year-old man involved in the incident were not at all aware that they were being filmed. In other words, their privacy was violated during this alleged act of exploitative voyeurism.

The Florida woman has been charged with video voyeurism and video voyeurism dissemination. She has also been fired from Bristol Court Assisted Living Facility. Things also aren't looking good for the nursing home in question. The Sheriff's Office in Pinellas County is considering having the place shutdown for good. The facility reportedly has a history of poorly training staff to the detriment of their residents, and this latest incident just may be the straw that breaks the camel's back.
