BOSTON (CBS) – A source tells WBZ-TV’s Karen Anderson that Wendell Noyes, the stepfather of Celina Cass, has been questioned by police, and has been uncooperative.

11-year-old Celina Cass was reported missing July 26. Her body was found Monday in the  Connecticut River, about a quarter mile from her home in Stewartstown, New Hampshire.

An autopsy performed Tuesday could not determine a cause of death.

In 2003, Noyes was involuntarily committed to New Hampshire Hospital in Concord after he entered his girlfriend’s house in the middle of the night and threatened to throw her down stairs, according to court documents.

Noyes was taken to the hospital by ambulance Monday for treatment related to his history of mental illness.

Police have not said they have any persons of interest, and no arrests have been made.

    Thank you Kathy,
    It drives me crazy when I go in the grocery store and see nurses in scrubs handling the produce.

      Kim, me thinks are are a bit confused. We’re not talking about scrubs as far as I know. Now……..I’ve got to get back to the planet Earth.

    Thank you for his facebook link.
    I find it rather odd his friends are all young girls!

    First of all, there had better be a determination made of how she died or it’s going to be a difficult case to prove. Judging by what I’ve heard about some of the male species up there, sex offences seem to be the norm. It’s been 9 days and still not one, single word from the mother of this young girl. What’s up with that?

    If there was a scuffle with the Step Dad and Celina, why did the older daughter and the mother not hear it?

    1. annette martin says:

      they didnt hear anything coz they werent home at the time. celina’s mom was working that morning and the sister stayed over nite at a friends. so that leaves celina and step dad alone that morning,

    I had noticed the facebook page myself. Also notice that he is supposedly a member of Zoosk? Isn’t he married to her mother?

    Upon further investigation into his fb activities, he makes inappropriate comments on some of those girl’s FB statuses. Inappropriate for a married man .. for sure..

    i know that if we know this, the important folks will also know.

    I found it odd that he collapsed while they mentioned they were searching the river. I think it was before they had even found her body.

    I am wondering if he knew they were closing in on him.

    Sick. Thanks for that. This may be used as evidence of a perverted individual. “Addicted to porn” perhaps…ugh.
