    Grace Packer's Biological Parents Want to Sue Social Service Agencies That Placed Girl With Mom Accused of Killing Her
    Bucks County District Attorney's Office
    Grace Packer, 14, was last seen alive on July 4, 2016. Her dismembered body was found on Oct. 31, 2016 in rural Luzerne County, Pennsylvania.

    The biological parents of a 14-year-old Pennsylvania girl who authorities say was killed and dismembered by her adoptive mother are trying to become administrators of the girl's estate.

    The attorney for Rose and Rodney Hunsicker say they're doing that so they can later sue the Berks County social service agencies that placed the girl, Grace Packer, with the woman accused of abusing and killing her.

    The girl's adoptive mother, Sara Packer and her boyfriend, Jacob Sullivan, are charged in Grace's death. Authorities say the girl was killed in July as part of a rape-murder fantasy the couple shared. Officials say they dismembered the body in October.

    Packer and Sullivan have pleaded not guilty.
