Kids play together, and parents watch over them, and over other people’s children.
But their sense of security was shattered Monday when a 6-year-old girl who had been playing outside her home was found dead under a tarp in a street about a mile from her home on Babbling Brook.
The FBI and the Texas Rangers were on the scene Tuesday.
Residents vowed to be even more vigilant as they struggled with the thought that a predator has attacked in their neighborhood.
But they also took time to honor the child with a memorial at the spot where her body was found.
It started with a few teddy bears Tuesday morning, and several hours later, it was still growing.
