It is significant to me that the name of the recipient on the package and the address on the package do not match and that FedEx delivered it to the wrong address. That suggests to me that the entire incident may have been a sting operation. State or Federal narcotics agents do
sometimes impersonate FedEX, USPS, or UPS carriers, drop off a package, and then come by later on with a warrant to search the premises. You've never said as much, but I imagine the package contained a controlled substance.
If the package was a legitimate FedEx package, (or for that matter, if it's police arranged) the sender should be traceable. Your nephew was right to turn the contraband over to the police because possession of it is a crime. I would note that your nephew's feeling that your daughter may have had something to do with it doesn't seem to be of interest to the police, (who may well even know better). If they believed that your daughter may have been behind this, they'd already have the probable cause
to arrest her. And they haven't done so.
If your daughter is called to the precinct to give information about this, if it is at all possible, she should absolutely talk to a lawyer first before going over to speak to them. If she's not called in, just leave it alone. Do NOT go stirring a pot if nobody is looking to bother your daughter. She may not even be a suspect. Don't do anything to make her one.
As for the lawyer, Legal Aid works on behalf of people who can't afford attorneys. However, in some states Legal Aid only handles civil law. Criminal
cases get done through the local public defender's office
. The criminal court
clerk could give you that number if you couldn't find it listed.
