DAVIS, CA - Family members of 5-year-old Tatiana Garcia are questioning the Sacramento County Coroner's decision to release her body to her father while a restraining order was in place.
Tatiana Garcia's body was found in trunk of her mother's car on Sept. 26. The girl's mother, Aquelin Crystal Talamantes, was arrested last week in connection with her death.
A restraining order had been issued against the girl's father, Oracio Garcia. But County Coroner Gregory Wyatt said restraining orders are not relevant when it comes to the release of a person's remains.
Court documents show Garcia's restraining order stemmed from domestic violence issues and wasn't supposed to expire until 2017.
