Area residents tell NH1 News that Cass's disappearance and eventual murder in 2011 was a chaotic time. Now that there has been an arrest for what some are calling a "horrible" crime, they want answers as to why and how the murder happened and if Noyes actually committed murder.

Noyes, Celina's stepfather at the time, is accused of killing her by submerging her body in the river.

Noyes will be arraigned Tuesday at 3 p.m. in the Berlin district court.
