Missing Arkansas Girl Honored by FBI

June 30, 2003 - Posted at: 2:58 p.m. CDT

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. -- FBI agents across the country will be wearing a patch honoring the memory of 13-year-old Arkansas girl Kaci Rene Woody.

The girl was abducted and murdered in December by 47-year-old David Fuller, who she met on the Internet. Monday FBI agents gave the girl's father, Rick Woody of Greenbrier, a plaque and one of the patches.

It features a teddy bear and a computer. The computer screen reads ``Kacie Woody 1989 to 2002.''

Rick Woody has allowed the FBI to use his daughter's story to make other teenagers aware of the dangers of chatting on the internet.

FBI officials say they made about 200 of the patches to distribute to agents who work to catch internet predators.

Kacie met the man in an Internet chatroom and he took her from her home in Holland. Police later found the two at a Conway mini-storage facility and surrounded them when they heard a gunshot. Police say he murdered her and then shot himself.
