Pennsylvania police call in FBI to track down suspects, motives in Saanvi Venna case

Local authorities on Tuesday have turned to the FBI to help identify any suspects of motives in Monday’s suspected abduction of 10-month-old Saanvi Venna from her home in a King of Prussia apartment on Monday – a scene where the child’s grandmother was found dead.

Authorities confirmed that Satyavathi Venna, the toddler’s 61-year-old grandmother, was indeed murdered in the her son’s home while visiting the family from India until January.

Her body was being autopsied on Tuesday, authorities said.

“All of our resources are focused on finding Saanvi and reuniting her with her parents,” Montgomery County District Attorney Risa Vetri Ferman said in an interview. “The search for the child is intricately connected to the homicide investigation.”

The FBI is assisting in the investigation, said Frank Burton, a spokesman for the agency’s Philadelphia office.

Venkata Konda Siva Venna (Saavni’s father) and her daughter-in-law, Chenchu Latha Punuru, Saanvi’s mother have pleaded in public videos to ask for the safe return of their daughter.

“We’re all devastated right now,” said Madhukar Sanikommu, 42, of Warren, N.J., a cousin of Saanvi’s father.

The family had been living in the apartment since June of this year after emigrating from India in 2007. They had previously lived in San Antonio, Texas, Troy, Michigan, and Cleveland, Ohio.
