Fox News tells us “Killer of Amber Hagerman, who inspired Amber Alert system, still being sought 25 years later“. 25 years ago a man kidnapped and killed Amber Hagerman. Amber had only been 9 years old. The police felt that an alert sent statewide might have helped to find her before her tragic ending. Thus they created an alert system to do that and named it the Amber Alert. This system has helped save many children throughout the last 25 years.
Unfortunately, the killer that started it all still needs to be found. Texas police ask that anyone with any information about what happened to the little girl contact them. I hope one day her mom can find the truth.
