Young girl becomes mute after the murder of both her parents.

I believe this movie was filmed either in the late 90s or early 2000s. A young girl's parents are murdered and as a result she stops talking and becomes extremely attached to a stuffed toy bear. Eventually she speaks but only when a man (possibly a police officer or detective?) finds out who murdered her parents.

"Life" tv show?
Or "Silent Fall", if a boy not a girl..
"Dead Silent"  made in 1999 with Rob Lowe.  Rob Lowe plays the detective and Catherine Mary Stewart plays the little girl's aunt. Young Amanda witnesses her parents' murder and is rendered mute. Her aunt Julia temporarily takes her in but soon discovers that her dead sister and brother-in-law may have held a secret life. Now she must risk everything as the killers are still hunting Amanda and the secret of her parents.
