The mother of the man accused of throwing his own daughter off a Bay area bridge to her death spoke to Bay News 9 on Saturday.
At a vigil for her lost granddaughter, Michele Jonchuck said that she's still searching for answers - just like everyone else.
"I just can't believe it; there's no words to describe it," she said.
Police say John Jonchuck dropped 5-year-old Phoebe Jonchuck from a bridge, killing her Thursday.
"She'll never leave us; she's our princess angel," Michele said.
Michele says she would never have imagined Jonchuck would do what he's accused of.
"I saw no indication. If I saw an indication this would never have happened," Michele said.
Others, however, did express concern.
Phoebe lived with her father, and in the last day of her life, he made comments that frightened his lawyer so much she called authorities.
Deputies questioned Jonchuck but say they found nothing wrong.
Just hours later, Jonchuck was pulled over for speeding on the Sunshine Skyway southbound approach. An officer watched him drop Phoebe over the side.
Michele says she hasn't talked to her son since.
"Right now I have no intentions of talking to him,” Michele said. “Because nothing could give me an answer to what he's done."
Phoebe's grandmother says she also wants to warn the public about potential scams to collect money for the little girl's funeral. She says it's all been paid for.
Jonchuck is being held in the Pinellas County Jail without bond.
At his first appearance in court on Thursday, Jonchuck turned down his right to a public defender, telling the judge he "wanted to leave it in God’s hands."
