POSTED: 06:51 AM CST Feb 19, 2014 UPDATED: 02:27 PM CST Feb 19, 2014

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -Springfield police say they found a body during the night that likely belonged to abducted girl Hailey Owens. They also have a suspect in custody...

Police worked "multiple" crime scenes all night at 1538 E. Stanford St. and other places as they investigated the kidnapping and murder of 10-year-old Hailey. She was taken from the 3200 block of West Lombard Street as she walked from a friend's home to her home two blocks away late Tuesday afternoon. The family lives in the 3300 block of West Page Street.

At mid-morning Wednesday, police confirmed another crime scene related to this case is at Dutch Maid Laundry, 526 S. National Ave., near Elm Street. That's a laundromat. FBI agents were looking through the washers and dryers there. They were there from about 3 a.m. until about 10:30 a.m., when the business reopened...

"All I can say right now is I miss her and I love her," said her father, Marcus Owens, in a telephone interview late Wednesday morning.

Hailey's father and mother, Stacey Owens, are divorced.

Witness to girl's kidnapping chased pickup but lost it in traffic

Riggins says he feels guilty, and believes he was so close to saving this little girl's life.

“I was just trying to do what I thought was right. I have a niece and nephew. If anything were to happen like that, I'd hope someone could do the same thing,” said Riggins. “I was so upset I wasn't able to keep up with him. If I was just a few seconds ahead, I could have been able to get behind him and see where he was going. But I wasn't able to.”

The last image most of Hailey Owens’ classmates will have of her is of a smiling, laughing girl dancing at Friday’s Valentine party. After the treats and the passing out of holiday cards, Hailey’s fourth-grade teacher put on some music. And the parent helpers — including Hailey’s mother — got to see the kids go at it.

“They got to shake their groove thing, and Hailey was in the midst of it all,” said Gary Tew, principal of Westport Elementary School in Springfield. “That’s what the kids are going to remember about her. And her mom got to see her in that light, too.”

Wood is charged with first-degree murder, child kidnapping and armed criminal action for the abduction and killing of Hailey Owens on Tuesday afternoon.

Imhoff ordered him held without bond, and set a preliminary hearing for April 7.

In his arraignment, Wood spoke only briefly to answer several questions from the judge. Hailey's parents, older brother and five other family members also attended.

Assistant prosecutor Todd Myers challenged Wood's use of a public defender after he said police found evidence of a $1 million trust in Wood's name.

The candlelight march and vigil was held in memory of Hailey Owens, who went missing Tuesday, taken in daylight as she walked back from her best friend's house. The event began as a private effort but gained city support to temporarily close several main streets.

Timeline of Hailey Owens tragedy: Documents, police statements tell the story
Quote:
By Kathryn Wall
1:55 AM, Feb. 23, 2014

After Hailey Owens was stolen from her neighborhood ... after the Amber alert ... after the 11 p.m. newscasts ...

... Springfield held its breath.

On social media, we shared news stories, photos of Hailey, pictures of what police called the abductor’s vehicle — our concern for the missing child. Together, we hoped for the best. But within a few hours of trying to escape her captor, Hailey — the little fourth grader with the giant smile — was dead.

The visitation will be on Tuesday with the funeral the following day.
Emily Wood - KY3
POSTED: 02:41 PM CST Feb 24, 2014 UPDATED: 05:55 PM CST Feb 24, 2014

"She's Springfield's child. Parents in this community realize this could be their child, and I think that's what makes it hit a little bit closer to home," said Clay Adams of Greenlawn Funeral Home.

Adams is planning the remembrance services for the 10-year-old girl who was abducted near her home and killed within four hours in Springfield last week. Adams said the child's family feels the overwhelming support pouring in from around the nation.

Ridgecrest Baptist Church, 2210 W. Republic Road, is opening its doors for the crowds expected at the visitation on Tuesday. The goal of the service is to give every person affected by the tragedy a chance to mourn and to celebrate Hailey's life.

The Missouri Victims Compensation Fund is covering for most of the service costs, according to Adams, with Greenlawn Funeral Home paying for all other expenses.

Visitation is at Ridgecrest Baptist Church from 4 until 8. The funeral service will be at 2 on Wednesday, also at Ridgecrest.

Less than a day after Hailey’s abduction, the community began to rally to support one of its own. A fund was created to alleviate the family’s expenses, a candlelight vigil drew an estimated crowd of 10,000, and chili supper organizers auctioned more than 100 donated items.

Stephens said the support of Hailey’s family “speaks volumes about the kind of city we are.”

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. - In times of tragedy many people rely on their faith. Spiritual leaders in Springfield are going straight to scripture to try to help people through the grieving process following the abduction and murder of Hailey Owens, 10.

"Poor Hailey went to sleep in a nightmare and woke up in the arms of Jesus," said Gary Hay, pastor of Hope Church.

Shock, horror, and anger are just some of the emotions rippling through the Springfield community and beyond. People paid their respects to Hailey's family during a visitation period at Ridgecrest Baptist Church on Tuesday afternoon.

"We who are left behind suffer from the grief and knowledge of what transpired the horror of all of that," Hay said.
