I used to live in the area and remember that a little girl named Tori Lynn was killed while under the care of her mother's boyfriend. I was wondering if anyone remembers the names of the parties involved or has any information about the case, such as was it ever solved? I am unable to find any info about it on the Internet. I remember that there were signs around town saying something to the affect of "Tie a yellow ribbon around a tree till Tori Lynn's killer is no longer free.

I think of this often and wonder if there was ever any closure. Thank you for any information.

Her name was Tori Lynn Contreras. Johnathon Leggett was convicted of manslaughter and rape and is in prison.

Here is a link of an old news article from the Bryan Times...(The woman in question actually used to babysit me and was involved with the man who is now prison for murdering Tori Lynn) I remember hearing this story and was mortified about it.
