‘I Choose Love and Hate Loses’: Athena Strand’s Grandfather Pens Emotional Message About Loss

Police say Athena Strand was dead within an hour of her abduction. The 7-year-old was taken from her family home by a FedEx delivery driver.  Authorities say a contract FedEx driver who was delivering a package to Strand’s home kidnapped the girl.

Investigators say Strand got off a bus around 4:15 p.m. and was missing from the residence at some point before 5:15 p.m. after an argument with her stepmother.  An hour-long search ensued, but when Strand could not be found, 911 was called.

Dozens of law enforcement and hundreds of volunteers joined the search effort. Police received a tip about the FedEx Driver Tanner Horner. When approached by police, Horner confessed. Police have not said whether Strand was sexually assaulted.
