The church has been closed since the death.

Brown said the OSBI, after collecting all possible evidence from the site, turned the building over to church leaders.

"With what happened there, the pain would be far greater than any praise or worship we could serve," said Pastor Ezra Randle of Elk City, who serves as the church's overseer.

"There are too many bad memories," Randle said.

Randle said church leaders are meeting to determine what an appropriate memorial would be to honor Daniels.

"We are in the early stages of planning the memorial," Randle said. "Hopefully, we can put up something worthy of her legacy and life."
