Public Invited to Cantu Memorial, Book Signing

Young girl's death touched thousands

Members of the public will be able to attend a memorial for the 8-year-old Tracy girl who was found dead Monday after disappearing from her home.

Tracy police say the family of Sandra Cantu has set a public service for Thursday at 1:30 p.m. at Tracy's Merrill F. West High School.

The service will be held in the school's gym, which holds about 2,500 people. Overflow seating will be available in the school's cafeteria.

A guest book is also available for the public to express their sympathy and support for the family. The book was made available Friday and will be at Fry Memorial Chapel all weekend from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The book will be given to the family later.

Meanwhile, Tracy police are busy tracking down tips that have been flowing into the department since the little girl's reported disappearance.

Sgt. Tony Sheneman says the department has fielded nearly 1,500 tips. He describes the leads as ranging from "psychic information to information that doesn't make a great deal of sense."
