Aussie mom clueless about Zahra’s ashes

SYDNEY (AP) — The Australian mother of a 10-year-old disabled girl who was murdered by her American stepmother in North Carolina says she has no idea what has become of her daughter’s ashes since the child’s father brought them to Australia.

Attorney Shell Pearce said Monday that his client, Adam Baker, left the United States roughly two weeks ago, bringing the remains of his daughter, Zahra, with him for burial in Australia.

Zahra’s biological mother Emily Dietrich told Seven Network television that her daughter’s remains might have been buried in Australia without her knowledge.

Dietrich was in court last year to see Zahra’s stepmother Elisa Baker sentenced to 18 years in prison after pleading guilty tosecond-degree murder in Zahra’s death.
