Athena Strand: Body of missing 7-year-old girl found in Wise County, police say

The body of seven-year-old Athena Strand was found in Wise County, Texas Sheriff Lane Akin said at a news conference Friday night.

The Wise County Sheriff also said a FedEx driver was arrested. The driver, identified by police as 31-year-old Tanner Lynn Horner, is being held in Wise County Jail on charges of capital murder and aggravated kidnapping.

“We want to send our condolences to the family of Athena Strand. Her body was found about two hours ago, maybe three,” Mr Akin told reporters.

The sheriff said Athena’s body was found about six miles from her home. Horner had dropped off a package at the house around the time the child was abducted, the sheriff said.

She was probably abducted from her driveway, about 200 yards from the house.

Mr Akin said the suspect provided police with two fake locations, including an area of ​​CR 4599 which was recorded by police on Friday afternoon, before leading police to Athena’s body.

Officials, however, did not describe a motive for the suspect.

“They [the investigative team] were able to determine that the driver abducted Athena and from an investigative perspective, numerically as well as good old interviews, we believe Athena died within an hour of leaving her home,” said Mr. Akin.

“This driver is a contract driver…he’s from Lake Worth,” the sheriff added. The suspect’s bail was set at $1.5 million, he said.
