The child told authorities that she was taken to the bus station by her father, and later led police to her mother's dead body in the family's Connecticut apartment. The unidentified victim was a Guatemalan native and recently moved into the apartment from New Jersey with her husband, and daughter, theStamford Advocate reports.
Authorities are still on the hunt for the husband, 32-year-old Elmer Gomez Ruono, who was captured on surveillance camera leaving the Port Authority at 8:30 a.m., roughly 90 minutes before his daughter was discovered.
The child is currently in the custody of New York's children's services.
Meanwhile, Frankel assured a fan that she was "serious" about her adoption offer, but it looks like she's already hit a road block.
"Lawyer says [with] the state a private adoption [is] impossible which is now upsetting me more," Frankel wrote adding "That's bulls**t."
The reality star shared another update on Thursday about feeling "helpless."
"It being another state is making it hard," she explained while including a hopeful message for the child. "Someone with means can get her therapy."
The Skinny Girl mogul may not be able to adopt the abandoned child, but she is expanding her family. Frankel recently added two adorable puppies to join her 6-year-old daughter, Bryn. See more in the video below.
