The sheriff's department said Cornell was in the red Ford Ranger they were searching for, and died of a gunshot wound. Police would not comment if the wound was self-inflicted pending the ongoing investigation.

I don't wish any harm to anyone and I truly hope she is found safe and well, but I honestly believe she won't be. That's why her stepdad was found dead. It's still to early to speculate without more facts. I have my own theory as to what happened, but I will reserve that thought, until the facts are released and she is found safe, I hope. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family.

Did she leave with the stepdad? The mom said on TV that when he came back and she was not in the truck with him,she said "She's missing" and he said "BS" and backed out of the driveway.
I think I'd said "WHERE IN THE H*** IS MY DAUGHTER???"
