Body Discovered Near Site of California Cliff Crash That Killed Family

One of the family's pets, a dog, didn't make it out.

Since the accident, authorities have suggested that the crash was intentional. "There were no other signs of the other missing Hart children".

They could have also been swept away by seawater because no one in the SUV was wearing a seatbelt, officials said.

Authorities have not been able to positively identify the body found on Saturday, but said the sheriff's office is "investigating the possibility that the body may be one of the two missing Hart girls".

Mendocino County Sheriff Tom Allman has described the crash as "a crime".

Data from the vehicle's software air bag module suggests the auto accelerated off the road and no skid marks were spotted in the area, officials said.

The ministry said it was helping the family but wouldn't provide details.

Sarah and Jennifer Hart and their six adopted children were believed to be in the family's SUV when it plunged off a cliff last month.

Sarah Hart also pleaded guilty to a domestic assault charge in Minnesota in 2011 stemming from an episode where one of the daughters went to school with bruises and said she had been hit. The family was in Newport, Oregon, about 160 miles southwest of their home, on the morning of March 24, and kept traveling south until they reached Fort Bragg, California, in Mendocino County that evening, according to the California Highway Patrol.

Neighbors of the Harts in Washington had called Child Protective Services, who opened an investigation, and the Harts left their home a day after officials tried to reach them there.

16-year-old Lexi Rae Hester was house sitting for her aunt and uncle when the fire happened.
