Missouri Kidnapping and Murder

Hailey Owens

(Springfield, Missouri) Middle school football coach Craig Michael Wood, 45, has been charged with the abduction and murder of 10-year-old fourth-grader Hailey Owens. Owens was taken as she walked home from a friend's house.

Wood faces counts of first-degree murder, kidnapping and armed criminal action.

Reportedly, Hailey Owens had been shot in the head.
Wood was inside a truck parked at his small, single-story home in Springfield when police arrested him Tuesday night.

A probable cause statement released Wednesday said that Wood was holding a roll of duct tape when officers arrived and that the girl’s body was found stuffed inside two garbage bags in a basement where the floor was still damp from bleach.

Springfield police find guns and child pornography inside suspect’s home

Here in Missouri, most news outlet and talk shows are abuzz with this heinous crime.

Law enforcement officials state that this piece of human garbage does not have a criminal record, but speculate one simply doesn't wake up one morning and think to kidnap, rape and murder a little girl.

He's got a history; he's just never been caught until now.
