It has been more than one week since police confirmed they located the remains of Zahra Baker, and police continue to gather information about what happened to Zahra in her final days.
Hickory Police Department Maj. Clyde Deal said police follow up on any information that could give them a clear picture of Zahra's death.
"Obviously, anything we come across that could be of interest to the case we will collect," Deal said.
HPD investigators conducted interviews Monday in the case, but Deal declined to say who was interviewed or what those interviews involved.

If you ask Terry Holmes, he'll tell you God has a plan for everything.
Holmes, 53, of Newton, had his share of difficulties in life -- involved with drugs at age 20 and in prison during his 40s.
