Dad to the Bone

AZLE, TX (BIKER DAD)–More than 250 bikers rode in Texas to remember Athena Strand who was taken by a FedEx contract driver and never came home again. The ride showed support for the little girl’s family while calling for #justiceforAthena.

According to reports:

A contract driver delivering packages for Fed Ex accused of kidnapping and killing Texas girl Athena Strand along his route claims he panicked after accidentally hitting the child with his van, according to an arrest affidavit reviewed by PEOPLE.

Wise County authorities allege Tanner Horner, 31, said he put Athena, 7, in his van on Nov. 30 after accidentally striking her with the vehicle while backing up. He then allegedly told police he killed the girl inside his van after panicking about what to do next, the affidavit says.

Surveillance footage from inside the van shows Horner talking to a little girl who resembled Athena, per the affidavit.

According to WFAA the contractor who hired the driver has not answered questions about his employment. You can see their investigative story here:
