The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil,
but because of those who look on and do nothing.

She was only eight...

The little girl reported missing on Monday night was only 8 years old, to young to have her life cut short.

The suspect isn't very old himself, still two years short of even being able to get a drivers license.

But police say that Dymia Janae Woody's body was found in a trailer, and evidence has come back that she was sexually assaulted before dying of asphyxia.

Hildebrand said the teenager lived in the same neighborhood and is believed to have known the girl. His name has not been released because of his age. Hildebrand says the boy voluntarily submitted a DNA sample, as did others in the neighborhood.

Eight years old is too young to be a rape/murder victim... and the thought of staring into the eyes of a 14 year old rapist and murderer is just as sobering of a thought.
