Asheville Police fear a missing 15-year-old girl may be dead. Erica Parsons' adoptive parents told investigators she came to live with her grandmother in Asheville in 2011. Detectives now think that was a lie.
Asheville Police spoke with Rowan County detectives in Salisbury. They believe the girl's parents made up a whole alibi about Asheville to cover-up something.
A family member tells News 13 he went to police with allegations Erica's adoptive parents may be abusing her. Those parents are the ones now under suspicion. They told police Erica came to live in Asheville with her maternal grandmother, but there's no evidence that's true.
