Police and volunteers continue to search the foothills around San Diego, looking for any sign of 7-year old Danielle van Dam. But prosecutors said Monday theres no chance of finding her alive.

(SOT PAUL PFINGST/PROSECUTOR)

I must conclude that Danielle van Dam is no longer living, and was killed by her abductor.
Prosecutors say Danielles neighbor kidnapped and then killed her, a special circumstance that carries the possibility of the death penalty. Detectives found traces of Danielles blood in David Westerfields motor home and on his clothing, evidence that will be used at trial.

(SOT WOODY CLARK/DNA EXPERT)

Jurors not only warmly embrace DNA evidence, but theyve also come to expect it, particularly in crimes of violence.
Danielles parents discovered she was missing 3 weeks ago. Police say she was abducted from her 2nd floor bedroom in the family's San Diego home. Westerfield lives two doors down, and that night, he was at the same bar where Danielles mother went out with friends. The next day, Westerfield took his motor home out to the beach and desert, and then had it steam-cleaned.

(NAT BUTTONS)


Despite a massive search by hundreds of volunteers, Danielle is still missing. But prosecutors say they can recall at least four other cases where no body was found.

(SOT PFINGST)

All four of those cases resulted in a guilty verdict, and a number of those cases ended up on death row.
