* Murder Victim* Rowan was a 9 year old 4th grade student at Triway Elementary School. The one thing everyone noticed about this sweet little girl was that she was always happy and was always willing to help. Her pastor at the Stella Baptist Church relates that he always came early to church on Sunday to set up. Rowan would always be sitting on the steps to greet him and came early just to see if anyone needed any help. Rowan was a member of the church's Sunday School, Wednesday night Team Kid and Angel Food Ministries.She had just learned to swim over the summer and also learned how to ride a bike. She just loved her blue-tinted Blossom Quest bicycle.
Rowan's favorite color was purple and her favorite television show was Hannah Montana.Her favorite food was spagetti. Rowan loved to read (especially about cats), sing, to color and draw. Her homeroon teacher said "She was a beautiful student...an angel...perfect. She was everybody's friend and I couldn't have asked for a better student"
