The father of Marian Valle donated her organs on Monday but she will remain on life support for up to 48 hours until her heart, liver, lungs and kidneys can be removed, according to an email Tuesday from Luis Carrillo, the attorney representing the family.
Police had said Monday that the girl had been taken off of life support but representatives on Tuesday morning said that, according to detectives, she remained on life support.
