Annie McCann: The Photos You Need to See

On October 31, 2008, Annie McCann ran away from her home in Alexandria, Virginia. Her parents found a note on Annie's bed, part of which read, "This morning I was going to kill myself. But I realized I can start over instead. I don’t want help and I’m no longer scared. If you really love me you’ll let me go. … Please don’t go looking for me." Two days later, Annie's body was discovered behind a dumpster in a Baltimore housing complex. The high school junior's autopsy report indicated that she had ingested large amounts of lidocaine, a local anesthetic found in Bactine Pain Relieving Spray. After studying the autopsy and toxicology reports, the Baltimore Police ruled that Annie's death was a suicide. Since then, however, Annie's parents have fought tirelessly to reopen the investigation. They vehemently believe that Annie was murdered, and that the evidence points towards a homicide.
