(CBS/WBZ/AP) STEWARTSTOWN, N.H. - The grandfather of Celina Cass, whose body was found Monday morning in the Connecticut River, wants justice served for the 11-year-old girl and doesn't want the case to go cold like the Caylee Anthony murder.

"I just hope justice is brought and whoever's responsible gets the max because that little girl didn't deserve that," Wally Laro told the Boston Herald on Wednesday. "I don't want no Casey Anthony."

Anthony has been out of the public eye since she was acquitted last month in the death of her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee. The jury's decision angered many people, and threats were reportedly made on Anthony's life. She went into hiding after leaving jail July 17.

An autopsy was conducted Tuesday on Celina Cass's body but didn't determine a cause of death, Senior Assistant Attorney General Jane Young said.

Meanwhile, the girl's hometown is expected to move forward with its annual children's festival called Stewartstown Days. It's scheduled for Friday and Saturday.

According to CBS affiliate WBZ, Stewartstown residents had considered canceling it but they are now dedicating the event to her memory.

Celina's body was found near a hydroelectric dam that spans the Connecticut River between Stewartstown and Canaan, Vermont., Essex County state attorney Vincent Illuzzi said.

Celina had last been seen in her house on Monday, July 25, at her computer.
