On December 4, when Burley picked up his two kids from their mother’s house, the girl’s grandmother dialed 911. Only one of Burley’s two children had been brought home.

Police found the child’s body in the Los Angeles River close to the Ocean Boulevard Bridge on December 5, five days after it had been reported missing.

Leliana’s mother, Lynisha Hull, claimed that her father “threw her off the bridge” and “murdered her by her.” Lynisha Hull spoke to “Eyewitness News.”

Hull stated, “He came to my house to pick up my kids.” He appeared to be in no way panicked at the time, even though he was at the time angry but otherwise normal.
