The tragedy is bringing the best out in neighbors, who spent last night and this morning hanging ribbons to show their support for the family.

"She was just an adorable little 3-year-old. What 3-year-old doesn’t take your heart?" said Judy Rott.

"We’re all upset about it so we went up and down and tied pink ribbons all up and down the street," Rott said. 

Throughout the Gilbert neighborhood, hundreds of ribbons were hung up to show support for the family who Judy says just moved in this past April.

"We just wanted them to know that we’re thinking about them," said Rott.

Investigators spent Wednesday focusing on a GMC truck parked in the driveway. Gilbert police told 12 News there's not much new information they can release about the investigation at this point.

As for Judy Rott, she wants the family to know their neighbors are with them at such a difficult time.

"Just pray for the family and don’t judge them. I’ve heard rumors about judgment and it’s wrong. No one should have to endure this," said Rott.
