What happened to Athena Strand?

The seven-year-old was reported missing from her home in Paradise, Texas on Wednesday, November 30, 2022.

As The US Sun previously reported, Athena was last seen around 5pm after being dropped off from school around 4:30pm.

Her stepmother realized she was missing after being unable to find her at 6.40pm when she returned home.

The following day, law enforcement issued an AMBER alert, and police shortly thereafter identified 31-year-old FedEx driver Tanner Lynn Horner as a suspect.

Horner is said to have confessed to the abduction and killing of Athena and is said to have been charged with capital murder and kidnapping.

When was Athena Strand found?

Tragically, on Friday, December 2, 2022, Athena’s body was discovered by Wise County police and the FBI just six miles from her home.

Horner is now being held in the Wise County Jail on $1.5 million bail charges of capital murder and aggravated kidnapping.

As investigators continue to investigate Athena’s murder, her devastated mother Maitlyn gave an insight into her family’s grief.

In a poignant Facebook post, the mother explained that she hadn’t slept since she discovered her firstborn child was missing.

She wrote: “My feelings are a wreck and I’ve been trying to hold myself together.

“I’ve been awake since Wednesday morning getting up for work. Please hold your children tighter than usual for me tonight.

“I’m going to put my phone on silent and try to rest tonight.

“We’re nowhere near the fight being over. All I want are my babies… and I know I’ll never be whole again.”

She then calmed down the emotional post by uploading hundreds of pictures of her “perfect” daughter Athena.

Maitlyn said: “Her name is Athena Presley Monroe Strand. She was perfect from her creation. She was born perfect and too beautiful.

“Daddy and Mommy were scared of how beautiful she always was and we feel like we let you down.

“No one deserves what happened to you but especially you. I love you and love doesn’t even cover it. Mommy is broken without you.”
