“There was a young girl kidnapped in the middle of the day on a neighborhood street in a Springfield, MO. Someone in the street witnessed the event and tried chasing the car on foot to at least get the plate number and call the police. They sent out an amber alert after a few hours, identified the owner of the vehicle and his residence but by the time they got to his house, they found her undressed body in a plastic tub in his basement and she had been raped and shot dead.

The most fucked up thing was that this guy was a middle school coach and he had child pornography in his house as well as photos of young girls from his middle school. We found out at my catholic high school that the murderer was the son of our theology teacher. Our teacher left school for over a week I’m sure trying to fathom how his own son could commit such a heinous crime.

The murderer was sentenced to death this year for the death of the girl, Hailey Owens. Her family, as well as the family of the murderer, lobbied to change amber alert laws so they can be issued faster after a kidnapping is reported.”
