Linda Malone, director of the church day-care center where Patricial spent much of her time the past two years, said the little girl had a beautiful spirit.  Malone said that, when she thinks of Patricia, all she can do is smile.

Patricia was last seen by her family riding her bike to a grocery store in Gilmore on August 15.  Her body was found August 19 after an intensive search in parts of three Delta counties.  A woman who sometimes babysat the girl, Jo Ann Buchanan, has been charged with kidnapping the girl.  She is being held in the Crittenden County jail in Marion in lieu of $1 million bond.

No charges have been filed in the girl's death.  An autopsy showed the girl was suffocated.
