Mourners Recall Slain Kidnapping Victim

From Times Wire Reports

More than 1,000 mourners gathered at a funeral service in Tyler for a Wal-Mart clerk whose chilling abduction was captured on surveillance videotape.

Friends and family remembered Megan Leann Holden, 19, as a beautiful, compassionate young woman known for her smile.

Holden had attended only one day at Tyler Junior College before she was abducted on Jan. 19 after finishing her night shift at Wal-Mart. Her body was found two days later in a ditch 380 miles away in western Texas.

Police have arrested Johnny Lee Williams, 24, in the case.
