Today the local and some national newscasts and newspapers covered the anniversary of Amber Hagerman's abduction and still unsolved murder. At that time we lived in Arlington and we still remember this horrific event. Hopefully, today's news coverage will generate new tips to help solve this crime. My prayers go out to Amber's mother & grandmother and the parents of other missing children.
The following excerpt is from the website of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.
On January 13, 1996, 9-year-old Amber Hagerman was riding her bicycle in Arlington, Texas, when a neighbor heard her scream. The neighbor saw a man pull Amber off her bike, throw her into the front seat of his pickup truck, and drive away at a high rate of speed. The neighbor called police and provided a description of the suspect and his vehicle. Arlington Police and the FBI interviewed other neighbors and searched for the suspect and vehicle. Local radio and television stations covered the story in their regular newscasts. Four days later Amber’s body was found in a drainage ditch four miles away. Her kidnapping and murder still remain unsolved.
