I have been contacted and informed that Nee Nee may not be buried in the Killeen Cemetary. I have also been trying to find more out about little Danydia and have additional information to now add to her memorial. I have requested permission to use the information and hope to have this soon and share more about this precious child's life and how much she was loved and is still missed by her family.

Danydia aka 'Nee-Nee' to family & 'De-De' to friends was murdered in Texas.

On the morning of April 30 1997 little Ne Ne headed off with her two cousins to go for breakfast at Marlboro Elementary School. The three separated just before 8am and Ne Ne went to play in the school yard playground. While there she was approached by a man who called her by name and who she readily went with. The two were seen a few blocks from the school with Ne Ne riding piggy back on the unknown male.

When she did not return home from school her grandma contacted police. Over the next week there were searches for the missing child. Over 1000 people showed up for what was called "Search for Ne Ne day". Her search also involved the Killeen Police, Sheriffs Department, FBI and organizations such as The Polly Klaas Foundation.

There is a $6,500.00 reward for information leading to the arrest of her killer. (See Polly Klaas Foundation for description.

The child's body was located a week later near the bridge on Lampasas River, 10 miles south of Killeen on FM195. Ne Ne was the 3rd young girl over several weeks to have disappeared from the area. Her death is reported as Homicidal Violence.
