Four days after her daughter was fatally shot by West Valley City police in an incident that left one officer injured, Melissa Kennedy said she still has more questions than answers.
Kennedy traveled from Vancouver, Wash., to meet with detectives who are investigating the Friday shooting that killed her daughter, Danielle Willard. Kennedy said police have told her so far that her 21-year-old daughter was unarmed at the time of the shooting, and that the fatal bullet entered through the top of her head. Kennedy, who saw her daughter's body, said it also looked as if another bullet had grazed her chin.
Those two facts are all Kennedy has learned so far during her trip to Utah. Wednesday, she plans to return home to plan for her daughter's funeral, which is Saturday in Vancouver. She said that the detectives investigating the shooting have been helpful, but she understands she won't get all the answers she wants right now.
