WESTMINSTER, Colo. (AP) - A public memorial service will be held tonight for a 10-year-old girl who was killed after disappearing on her way to school.
The service for Jessica Ridgeway is scheduled at an Arvada church that can hold 2,500 people.
Police say Ridgeway was last seen beginning a short walk from her home to Witt Elementary School the morning of Oct. 5. On Wednesday, authorities discovered her body in an Arvada park about 7 miles west of her Westminster home.
