Rachel Canning Returns Home To Her Parents

Posted: Updated:
After almost two-weeks of national and international news coverage, Rachel Canning went back home to her parents. The family Attorney Angelo Sarno held a press conference yesterday to try and put an end to this case and ask the media to stand down.

“Now that this child’s home, this young ladies home, I would really implore you to respect their privacy. Please don’t contact them, do not camp out at their houses,” he said.

Several people still have a lot of unanswered questions about the whole situation, but Sarno made it clear that he would not speak on the details of the case and repeatedly said to the media that gathered, “this is over”.

While it is reasonable to ask the media to let this family heal, a lot of the news escalated when family and friends took to social media and even spoke to press outlets.

“Unless you’re in it, unless you’re living it, you can’t get the impact of having people outside your door, people walking through my office, people just coming day to day. The impact of this is just so overwhelming. My clients haven’t made any comments about the case, they’re not gonna make any comment going forward, that’s all I can say,” Sarno explained.

In fact, none of the people directly involved in this case, the Cannings or the Inglesinos attended the press conference and Sarno said that their absence was basically by design. The family and their legal team hopes that by making this announcement they will be able to fade back into their regular lives and get out of the spotlight.

While Sarno refused to answer questions about the details of the case, he did say that Rachel went home Tuesday night and that her return was an amicable agreement. He’s hopeful that a case that never should have gone to court will now be settled privately over time.
