Authorities are investigating whether a surveillance video from Fort Bragg, California, shows a woman the day before her family’s SUV was found at the bottom of a cliff along the Pacific Coast at a scenic viewpoint.
Mendocino County Sheriff Lt. Shannon Barney told The Oregonian/OregonLive Tuesday the woman in the video looks like Jennifer Hart but that the footage is ‘very grainy.’
Sarah and Jennifer Hart were found dead at the crash scene March 26 along with three of their children.
Three other children remain missing. Authorities have said the crash was probably deliberate.
One of the missing children is 15-year-old Devonte Hart, a black youngster who drew national attention after he was photographed in tears while hugging a white police officer during a 2014 protest.
News of the possible spotting comes as it was revealed that the couple pulled all of their kids out of school the day after Sarah Hart admitted to child abuse in 2011.
Records showed that the Hart children were removed from public school in Alexandria, Minnesota the day after Hart reached a probation agreement in a child abuse case on April 14, 2011.
That came a week after Hart pleaded guilty to physically abusing one of her daughters, who was six at the time.
The kids were taken out of school and moved to Oregon, where they were privately educated from there on out, the Oregonian reported.
The family later moved to Woodland, Washington, where they were living at the time of their deaths.
