Thousands of people turned out Saturday night for a candlelight vigil in Springfield, Mo., to remember Hailey Owens, the 10-year-old girl whose body was found stuffed in two trash bags in the home of a middle school football coach this week.

Hailey was walking to a friend's house in Springfield before 5 p.m. Tuesday — just two blocks from her own home — when a man in a gold Ford Ranger lunged at her, grabbed her, threw her in his truck and drove away. Craig Michael Wood, 45, was charged Friday with first-degree murder, kidnapping and armed criminal action.
