Former FBI profiler Clindt Van Zandt says that while police don't believe the murder of 5-year old- Isabella Tennant was sexual in nature, that it must be at least part of what is considered by Niagara Falls police in cases like this.
Van Zandt spoke on Buffalo's Early News this morning as two teenagers headed to court for arraignment in the death of Tennant.

HEAR VAN ZANDT ON THE WBEN LIVELINE:
The toddler was found in an alley in Niagara Falls Monday, stuffed in a garbage bag. Authorities said it was Freeman's friend, 18-year-old Tyler Best, who led them to her body, which he said he helped Freeman hide. Authorities said it appeared Isabella had been killed without weapons being involved.
"How can a sixteen year old kill this beautiful five year old girl," Van Zandt said. " The motive is something that is going to challenge this community for years to come," he said.
Van Zandt tells WBEN's Susan Rose that the age of the alleged killer and the dumping of the body suggests to him that the act was not lanned.
