What Happened After Work?

Larissa got off work at her job at a strip club and went to her uncle's house for drinks. She had arranged to pick up her son the following day. Larissa left her uncle's house around 4:30 am but it wasn't until she did not pick up her son that her family became concerned.

Larissa was a devoted, loving mother. It was extremely out of character for her not to pick him up. She had been working on getting out the business of being a dancer. She loved music and was set to audition for American Idol.
