SAN FRANCISCO — Authorities on Tuesday identified a 13-year-old girl found dead in a Fairfield park and released video images they say were captured minutes before she disappeared.

The naked body of Genelle Renee Conway-Allen was found Friday morning in Alan Witt Park, police department spokesman Sgt. Matt Bloesch said Tuesday. She was reported missing Thursday evening by her guardian at the foster home where she lived in neighboring Suisun City.

Surveillance video captured her minutes before she disappeared, Bloesch said. Her body was found by a passer-by in the park about three miles from where the images were captured.

The man who found the body, and a neighborhood resident who reported seeing a man standing by a car in the park about two hours before the body was found, have been interviewed by investigators. Police declined to release what information, if any, they obtained in the interviews.

Jac Davey, a resident of the area since 2008, told The Associated Press that he saw a man with his head down standing in front of a car in the park around 5 a.m. Friday.
