The father of the disabled girl North Carolina police say was killed and dismembered says he didn't have anything to do with her death.
"There's no way I would do that to my baby," Adam Baker told WBTV. "There's no way in the world I would hurt my daughter."
Adam Baker said he avoided a public vigil Tuesday night on what would have been Zahra Baker's 11th birthday because he didn't want to take the focus off his child. He watched over the Internet along with his mother and lawyer.
Adam Baker said he's been called a murderer since his daughter's disappearance last month became a homicide investigation. The Hickory home he shared with his daughter and wife, Elisa Baker, has been abandoned and turned into a memorial for the girl, complete with signs blaming the adults for the girl's death. Tuesday night's vigil in Hickory included members of the crowd calling for justice in the case.
Police said last week they found a bone belonging to Zahra Baker at one location and other remains at a second site about five miles away. Investigators haven't said how she died.
