Police make arrest in the Sandra Cantu murder

April 11, 2009

cantu-murder-arrestA 28 year old Sunday school teacher at her grandfather’s Baptist church has been arrested in connection with the the murder of 8 year old Sandra Cantu.  Melissa Huckaby is being held without bail at the San Joaquin County Jail. According to police, she gave enough information to warrant probable cause for her arrest.

The suitcase Sandra’s body was found in belonged to Ms. Huckaby though she said she said she had left it in her driveway that day and  it had been stolen.  She said Sandra had come by her house earlier in the day to play with her daughter but that she sent her home because her child needed to pick up her toys.

Huckaby had been hospitalized earlier in the week for alleged internal bleeding, but was later released.  She has a known mental history and has been arrested in the past for theft.

Police have not revealed how they think Sandra Cantu died, but they did say they now believe she was killed before she was reported missing to the police.

read it below:

This is beyond tragic to me.  If this woman did kill Sandra Cantu, it says you can’t ever be sure who is out there that might want to harm your child–even your children’s playmates’ mothers.  Scary times we live in.

    This is awful. I did read somewhere yesterday, and don’t quote me on the exact wording of this, but during the time that Sandra was out, her older sister was asked by this same woman to watch her daughter while she ran out. Something like that. Sandra would have trusted this woman, she was her friend’s mom and had known her for a year. Hopefully more answers as to why this woman did this comes out. It’s really scary, mental illness is really scary. Too bad Sandra’s mother wasn’t aware of it (I would think she didn’t know). It’s just not fair, that’s all I can say. I also hope that the Cantu family and friends find the strength they need to get through this difficult time.

    This truly stuns me! I never suspected a female! THE WHOLE WORLD IS GOING CRAZY! You read about all the school teachers and priests, ministers molesting young people. Who can parents trust anymore? This is just awful. Shameful. I would be a wreck if I had children!

    We do live in scary times. I agree with you Mystery. This is so sad. My heart breaks every time I hear of another child going missing, and then found dead. God Bless Sandra’s Family. My heart breaks for them. We do have to closely monitor whose homes our children go to. I myself have had trouble with other parents being bad examples and encouraging my children to do things they knew better than to do. I’ve had to restrict my kids from other people’s homes. I’ve never seen anything like this though. I cannot believe how much evil we are all living amongst these days. God Help Us.

    FYI: the Tracy area local news stated that the day Sandra became missing Huckaby not only lost the giant rolling suitcase, she “lost her keys and cell phone” and “went back inside the trailer (preacher’s wife was home) to grab her spare car key and then took off in her SUV.”

    Huckaby’s keys and cell phone were found in the suitcase with Sandra’s corpse….

    The Tracy PD did find tire tracks at the pond where Sandra was found. Possibly they matched to the lady’s SUV but that has not been officially announced.

    The only mention of “mental illness” regarding the woman is the fact a condition of her theft conviction requires her to participate in a mental health program. Apparently, like many who are charged with crimes . . .she or her attorney arranged a sentence with this recommendation.

    The court’s public record of this will be rather convenient in the criminal case now pending.

    PS..forgot to mention

    In local Tracy news it was intimated that the murder occurred in the church and the police/FBI were particularly focused on an outbuilding ‘shed’ on the church property.

    I recall the church being described as sitting across from the trailer park on the other side of a dangerously busy road that kids didn’t cross on their own.

    It is also reported that Sandra’s older sibling was asked by Huckaby to babysit her five-year old after telling her that she had to go out.

    That’s a horrendous thing for Sandra’s sister to have in her mind the rest of her life…while she was sitting for Huckaby’s child, her sister was being dumped in a pond by the child’s mother.

    That unmitigated cruelty of dragging in yet another Cantu family member – a child – adding to the lifelong emotional horror of having a murdered child really gets to me.

    That type of mental abuse orchestrated on yet another child she used in the same family after murdering one . . . really is horrendous cruelty to inflict.

    I have a really terrible feeling about all this… I heard a reporter ask the sherrif if they’re planning on making any more arrests. He responded, “not for THIS case.” That makes me think they’ve uncovered something else tangential THRU this case. Hmmm…did yall hear she drugged a child in a park late at night not too long ago? Let’s see, a history of drugging kids…her suitcase with a body in it floating in a pond…her grandpa’s church shed and crawlspace searched… Fred Williams who knows WAY too much about said suitcase, is a caretaker at said church, and apparently lives in quite a nice home for someone on a low income… I smell a kiddy porn ring getting busted pretty soon… JMHO

    “When she talked to the Tracy Press Friday, she said she wasn’t the same Melissa Huckaby who pleaded no contest Jan. 9 to a felony charge of second-degree commercial burglary and a misdemeanor charge of petty theft after being arrested in November 2008 for trying to steal something from Target.She had been examined by doctors and was deemed mentally competent to stand trial. She was due back in court next week for sentencing.”

    Yet the exact address and phone number of the “not the same person” was in the arrest files as being hers.

    “Huckaby claimed to reporters Friday that she had found a note that had the words “suitcase” and “water,” as well as “Whitehall,” the street near the irrigation pond where she was found.”

    The police have stated it was Huckaby’s statements to the press which conflicted with statements she had already made to the police that escalated their attention on her which then resulted in the police interview that led to her arrest.

    One thing I have not heard mentioned on any newscast, and therefore think perhaps I am alone in thinking, is that a child that young should not be walking around to playdates – multiple playdates – by herself. I have a second grade daughter and would never let her do this. In the times we live in, she is NOT safe enough to this, and therefore I do not let her. In my opinion, if a child is too young to fend for themselves, it’s a parent’s job not to put them in a position to do so. That being said, my heart goes out to this family for the terrible loss they have suffered. It is unimaginable. I hope parents take this as a reminder to keep their young children close, and to spend the time and effort to get to know their playmates’ families. My daughter has friends whose parents have dropped them off at my house when I have never met them. I’ve invited them in so we can get to know each other, but many have been too busy and have just left their kids in my care. They were lucky I am who I am.

    pak31–If that turns out to be true that’s just terrible! I wonder if this was some kind of accident and the woman panicked or if she outright murdered her?

    I hope they find the strength and faith to get through this, too. If it turns out to be her, I pray that her family can get through it, too.

    though it’s probably no consolation to her family at this moment in time, I agree that at least they know what happened to their child. There will be closure. I’m thinking of Haleigh Cummings and her family–when will they find closure?

    Augie–Thanks for that information. If her keys and phone were inside the suitcase, I wonder what took them so long to arrest her?

    I guess I have to think she is mentally ill to get my mind around the fact that this woman, a friend of Sandra’s mother, the mother of a young girl–Sandra’s friend–could have done such a thing and then asked Sandra’s sister to babysit while she got rid of the body. I can’t imagine a sane person doing that.

    Hi Mystery…this is something so evil…words cannot begin to explain how I feel. It would seem this woman most certainly be insane..what reason could she possibility have to murder this child?
    My heart goes out to Sandra’s family..I’m sure they felt the trailer park being small was a safe place..most everyone knowing everyone else..this is a wake-up call for all parents to be aware of where and to whom your children are with.
    These are truly troubled times we are living in..evil is rampant amongst us…
    God Bless this family and give them the strength to carry on.

    This whole senario from word one sounded like someone closer tnan a stranger.
    I live in a mobile home park in Concord and the word here agreed, we felt that her killer was a resident. How dare someone close to have violated your community… and take little Sandra .

    It breaks my heart to think that little Sandra, trusting soul, found her life to end by someone who in her young years trusted.
    I applaud the Tracy PD for their swift work and for keeping this case much more closed than open. I am not familliar with the spokes person from the PD, but he really knew his stuff.

    To Sandra you are with the Lord now little angel… walk gently and look down at us from heaven… you will be missed little one… and that Jesus will hold you close and comfort you and your family.

    God bless all of the residents of Tracy for their steadfast prayers and love and dedication to you.

    Lord Jesus, please give us all the comfort we seek in such a time, when we feel so lost because of the loss of our little angel Sandra.

    God Bless you all..

    A Tracy local made a comment regarding this lady Huckaby that she had drugged someone’s child in Tracy in the recent past. The comment was that brief but quite emphatic.

    Tracy also happens to be the town where that tormented little boy was chained, tortured, beaten, starved and enslaved by a family – he’s the little one who escaped and ran to an exercise club yards from the home not long ago.

    oh – someone has revealed that on the day it was announced Sandra was found in the suitcase, Huckaby swallowed a razor blade (the internal bleeding) to commit suicide. The same person claims that during the time the volunteers were gathering and searching the trailer park, Huckaby acted disinterested and did not participate along with all the other neighbors.

    It is now being reported in Tracy’s local news that Huckaby on her own volition drove…. to the police station and just walked in and started talking and in that time, she revealed so much they arrested her.

    Someone close to the investigation leaked information to the press that Huckaby made it clear it was deliberate action on her part to murder Sandra.

    There was mention of her drugging another child and it is assumed that she did so again with Sandra. ( Huckaby took a 7 year old neighbor to the park and dosed the child with narcotics.

    People are vehement in claiming Huckaby was not a Sunday School teacher, the church had only fifteen members, mostly meth users; that Huckaby admitted to police that she was a regular visitor to the remote farm pond (which is not a pond per se, it was the run off massive puddle of water and manure from the cattle barn that regularly got hosed down.)

    Tracy locals are pointing to for information on this lady. Am going there to read it now.

    Geez, from reading and listening to several reports, it sounds as if the police did get called when a Huckaby neighbor telephone them to report her 7-year old came home from an outing with Huckaby and was dosed with narcotics….it sounds all rather recent. (she’s also reputed to be a heavy drug user by locals)

    The Sandra Cantu investigators were just informed of this and requested the police file/report regarding Huckaby being questioned about this dangerous incident with yet another child.

    Also, there are several comments regarding a boyfriend of Huckaby’s who apparently does not have a good reputation (drugs maybe?) that locals have a low opinion of.

    There was an early report of a teenager having told police he witnessed a ‘strange acting man’ in his late 20’s early 30’s standing and staring at the pond next to his parked truck a day or so before the body was found. Some are assuming it is Huckaby’s boyfriend since they say the run off manure pond is rather large and odd that the suitcase with a 50-lb child inside made it all the way to the middle of the thick viscous sludge.

    People are of the assumption Huckaby needed help to throw the heavy suitcase out into the sludge in order for it to have gone that far off the pond’s edge . . . and the boyfriend’s reputation makes him their suspected helper for Huckaby

    But, the suitcase had two-weeks in the sludge prior to being found so had plenty of time to float around the surface. It is a water proof suitcase so probably not apt to sink even in regular water?

    I’m callin it right now, this was a kiddyporn ring in action. Melissa scouts and recruits the kids, drugs them, and transports them to the church where the “club” has their way with them on camera. I read cops removed a mattress from the church and were gutting the walls looking for hidden cameras (WHILE this nut was being questioned, mind you). This is the tip of a VERY LARGE iceberg IMO. Definitely check out Blink’s article, and the discussion, it goes into more detail about all this…

    Aries Mom,

    I undersstand your point, no where is safe now days. As I mentioned I live in a park here were we have a very good sense of community and think we know about what really goes on here.
    Then comes the day where we are notified by managment about a theft, robbery or assult here during the day of all things.
    I have a toddler grand daughter and watch her like no bodies business.
    All my neighbors have exchanged phone, email etc, but I do know that even where I live, there are residents who are registered offenders, under Megan’s Law, which sickens me to know end.
    I know that we have stepped up our watchful eye after watching this story unfold, but will it ever be enough?
    That is the very reason why, I assert myself more, ask questions, talk to others who do not look familiar and write down licence plates…. worried, yes, and very cautious. If we all do this, it can make our safety at least a bit better.
    Teaching children about strangers is paramount… no longer do we live in a world where your front door is unlocked….

    Mand–After reading the stuff on that Augie was talking about and following Ricky’s link, I’m thinking Ostella is right on the money. This is just the tip of the iceburg and a child porn ring may be exactly what that poor little girl stumbled into. She was either drugged and then remembered too much when she came to or was killed outright for some reason.

    This Melissa person swallowing the razor blade–I wonder if she was NOT the one that actually murdered the child.

    Good Morning All! What a sad sad state this world that we live in has become. Something has definately happened along the way and as each year passes it gets worse. Unfortunately a mother trusted someone and in doing so she now has lost a daughter forever. My sons are 13 and 16 and consider me to be the most overprotective mom around. I do not allow them to roam free. Of course being boys they believe they are invinceable.

    I too have had parents drop off their children and just leave, never knowing who I am or what could possibly happen to their child. What is even worse is that most of the time their children will wind up being here for an entire weekend and I am taking them home on a Sunday night. Nobody looks for them, calls to check on them, or worries that they are eating.

    My 16 year old “wants to die” every time a party is announced, an outing to a movie or any other social function is going on , because I am calling to find out who what where and when. Of course according to him I am the only parent who does this and it is so embarrassing… Funny, I know alot of his friends moms and they are all embarrassing according to their kids…

    I will not turn this case around and point the finger at Sandra’s mother for allowing her to go play. Unfortunately, as mothers we all have made a mistake or two in our years with our chldren. This poor woman will spend the rest of her life blaming herself.

    I had a family that my children have known most of their lives. I knew them well, their son was at my house on numerous occasions and we belonged to the same sports clubs. We spent alot of time together. They knew that I was very adament about supervision, drinking and so on.Yet, my son spent the weekend there with all the boys and was caught sneaking out (as all boys will try)I was never told about this. Only that my son has the most guilty concience did he tell me. After a very long talk with both parents they apologized and promised should anything ever happen again they would let me know right then even if it was 3 am. A few months later my son spent the night with them and apparently was allowed to have a couple of beers. This sent me over the edge. How dare them make the decision to give him alcohol. The excuse: We all drank when we were younger. Then and there I made the decision that while I would never tell him he couldn’t be friends with their son, it would be at my house. Thankfully I know his mother ( This happened at the dad and step moms house) and she like me was unaware of what was going on. They not only were confronted by me but her as well. They have a five year old daughter together and I let them know that when she came to my house she would be allowed to drink alcohol and maybe even watch inappropriate movies or sneak out with the boys. Amazingly their tune changed…

    Sorry to ramble, my point is that you can think you know everything about a family, feel that your children are safe and still not see everything that happens. It is our job as parents to protect them and keep them safe.

    We had a kid the first summer we moved here, that would come over on the weekend and his mother wouldn’t check on him for 4 or 5 days! If I didn’t call her, I’m not sure she would have looked for him til school started in the fall! She didn’t know us from Adam! She had 4 other kids and I’m sure was stressed out and busy beyond words and just glad to get rid of one of them for a while, but still!
    That boy could’ve been dead and buried a week before she even noticed he was gone.

    Hey Mystery and Halfpint! I think that it is so hard to raise kids now a days. It was harder for us than our parents and it is harder for parents now. So many bad influences, and questionable people and they know no social boundries. You have to be so careful who you trust your children with. Other parents can seem so nice and so genuine, and be not fit to raise a hamster. “Satan comes as an angel of light”. It’s amazing the ugly people who can seem so nice, or so good. I’ve been burned myself on this very issue, but in a different way. You almost have to feel like you have to do a background check on people and hire a PI before you trust your kid with them. You just never know. I really pray for parents these days. It is so hard.

    This case leaves me without a lot of questions:

    Was Melissa sexually abused as a child? Did she sexually abuse other children?

    If her family was aware the she was receiving mental health counseling because of other petty crimes, didn’t they have an obligation to make sure that she was supervised when she was with children, especially since her grandparent or parent was the pastor of a church.

    Where other people involved in this crime?

    Comments: No matter how vigilant a parent is, bad things can happen to your children. This world is not a safe place. Sometimes the people we trust without really knowing them are not trustworthy and the people we suspect are not quilty.

    Everytime I hear a story like this, I’m glad that my children are older, but it wasn’t easy when they were younger. I prayed and worried a lot. The only time I felt at complete peace was when they were all sound asleep at home. This is a dangerous and unsafe world for everyone, but in particular vulnerable people. We all have to be or try to become the people we would want to encounter or our children to encounter. People in general need to become way more involved in the immediate world around them. That doesn’t mean being nosey and full of gossip, but helpful to those who need help and aware of who is supervising our children and teach our children to self-protect. Also, with pornography being the most watched male website, I think we have a long way to go.

    Ostella you may be on to something.

    This is my response to the person that doesn’t think a woman can rape a female child.

    Rape of a female is classified as the penetration of the vagina with a penis or any object. A woman can rape another woman or a child. Also, a woman can rape a man.

    Sexual abuse can encompass a whole array of inappropriate activity or suggestion.

    In the world we live in I am terrified as a mother to let my 7 yr old out of the house. Right now close to where I live there are two men driving around in a van with a puppy dog trying to lure children in. I sit and think to myself, would my daughter be the type of child to accept an invitation like that? No matter how many times I stress to her not to talk to people that approach her and to never get into a strangers car I have to say if a puppy was involved she would want to help. In this case it was a little girl who just wanted to play with her best friend right down the street. No defense attorney should be allowd to even speak the words mental illness in a case like this. People know what is right and wrong and I strongly believe in capital punishment and KARMA. If you ask me someone should stuff her in a suitcase and throw her in a pond while she is still breathing. She will get what is coming to her it may take time but the world does work in mysterious ways and she will get hers. That poor child… all that goes through my mind is the fear she must have felt and not understanding why. Parents rememeber this the next time you kiss your child or let them do things on their own to make them feel more independent. Children are defenseless against monsters in the world. They may be afraid of the monsters under their bed but parent need to be afraid of the monsters outside of their doors.

    Lift your head,

    Thank you for sharing that. (and I hope you called the police about the men in the van with the puppy—seems to me that would be a new fail situation. Children with their innocent love are always attracted to small animals and no matter how diligent we are as parents to teach them to be street smart, it can all go out the window when a puppy is involved.)

    That all said, you can’t insulate your child and deprive them of the joy of just being a kid–You just have to be careful and make sure they are educated in what could happen and that you know where they are at all times.

    Lift your head, can you please call your police and tell them to check out these two men? They are definitely involved in sexual molestation/paedophilia! This is the modus operandi in a district called Kampung Baru in Malaysia, still happening on and off now. In my story, there is a man on a black motorcycle going around that area, asking very young girls to help him look for his missing cat. Then he entices them with ice-cream if they do come help him. After the girl follows him, he takes her to his den, ties her hands and feet and uses a vegetable to rape her. Then he releases her, or in the case of Nurin, he murdered her, left the vegetables in her, and dumped her into a sports bag which he left under a staircase. Our police are too incompetent that 2 years later neither the perpetrator nor these paedophiles have been caught. And the paedophiles continue boldly. The last incident that happened again was on 2 April 2009. Imagine their audacity! If you have a heart, please lodge a police report, please hold a video camera and aim at their registration number.

    Hi Mystery and Niecey and All Others:

    It’s been a couple days so I am a little late in responding. I agree Mystery, it amazes me how many people are parents that should not be. I have always said that there are so many stipulations for anyone to have a license of any sort whether be driving, medicalor what have you, Yet, there are no stipulations on being a parent. If you can have a child then you are somehow automatically qualified.

    Lift Your Head:

    I hope that someone in law enforcement is aware of what is going on around your neighborhood. Just last year we had two incidents involving someone trying trying to take a child. The first was a little girl who rides the same bus as my son. She lives in a mobile home park and walks by herself from the back to the front every morning.( It is a nice little community but very large and I have always thought that they needed a few more stops in there.) On this particular morning the little girl she usually meets did not go to school so she was alone. A man about 45 or so drove up in a nice shiny red truck and flashed a gun telling her to get in the truck. THANK GOD she ran and started banging on the door of a neighbors home. Unfortunately nobody was home but it was enough to scare him away. She got on the bus and never said a word until she got to school. The entire district was put on lockdown and the school and mobile home park was swarming with police within five minutes. A few weeks later two men driving a broken down looking van walked right into the playground during lunch recess and grabbed a kid. They were immediately surrounded, not by the adults but the kids. They started fighting and kicking and screaming at the top of their lungs. Again the lock down procedure happened but to this day neither case returned any results.
    I apologize for rambling but cannot say enough about this. Too many times these predators get away. Thankfully none of our children were harmed, but I feel as though if they had the thought in their mind that day they would just continue on until they succeeded.
    Hold your children close. I must hear at least five times a day that I am SOOOOOOOO overprotective, but they are here with me.

    That lady is one awful person and i hope she burns in hell… the hell would she feel if someone did that to her daughter. Now the parents of that young girl is grieving and dont even know why their innocent young daughter was murdered without reason. She should be put in front of the family and drilled with questions of why she did it and what their daughter did to deserve to be murdered. See if that makes her go crazy…..if that was ever allowed then i hope her brain explodes. R.I.P. Baby girl. Im sorry for what has been done to you.

    I think and this is just my opinion that this woman’s daughter could have done it and maybe her mother is covering up for her.

    My comment is that maybe her daughter killed the girl and she took the blame for it. Think about it would you let your child go to jail for murder if she was that young. This is a sick world and these days there is no telling what some parents would do for their kids

    Kim, I don’t think that’s the case. Her daughter is very young and if you have read the discovery that has been released, little Sandra was sexually abused and suffocated–not something another small child is likely to have done.

    Wow! That comment is out of left field there Kim, I agree that killers are getting younger and younger – but to accuse a 5 year old child, of murder and sexual abuse is harsh and honestly as a parent who loves her kids more than anything in this life – IMO knowing their child could commit a crime such as this, a parent would be out of their mind to take the blame – leaving the perp free to roam the streets looking for their next victim.

    itsamysterytome; thanks for a great blog site.
