Sunday School Teacher Arrested for the Murder of 8-Year-Old Girl

Citizens Take Action to Stop All Crimes Against Children after a series of abducted and murdered children.

Beltsville, MD, April 16, 2009 --( A frightening case in California just got scarier: Melissa Huckaby, a 28-year-old Sunday school teacher, has been arrested in the kidnapping, rape and murder of a young girl. The body of 8-year-old Sandra Cantu, last seen skipping down her street March 27, was found April 6 in an irrigation pond, stuffed into a suitcase owned by the teacher, whose 5-year-old daughter was one of her playmates. “Ms. Huckaby has been arrested and will be booked at the San Joaquin County Jail for kidnapping and murder,” Tracy Police Chief Janet Thiessen said. “Crimes against children like Sandra Cantu, Caylee Anthony and Hayleigh Cummings will continue until concerned citizens unite in an effort to elevate America’s awareness to the tricks of the trade that predators use to gain control over their intended victims,” says Edward Jagen, a retired Major Crimes Investigator and Founder of the Child Empowerment Network.

Across America citizens are saying, “Enough is enough” to the horrific reports of children being abused and murdered by seemingly unthreatening individuals. Mothers in Action (M.I.A.) has linked with the Good Knight Child Empowerment Network to sponsor a free online seminar that will allow concerned citizens to educate family members and their communities on how to stay safe.

All Americans can take advantage of this free online safe and healthier communities seminar which is available through www.USASERVICE.ORG or directly at The purpose of the short easy-to-follow training seminar is to elevate family and community awareness on such vital topics as child abduction prevention, internet safety, crime and violence prevention, gang activity, senior safety, conflict resolution, character development, fire safety and disaster preparedness. After completion of the online seminar the volunteer presenter can create a family safety strategy and/or go out into their neighborhood and teach others what they have learned as part of this grassroots awareness initiative. M.I.A. and the Good Knight Network are backing these seminars with over 4 million dollars worth of subsidized program materials to help volunteers educate America. The goal of the initiative is to reach over 50 million families nationwide over the next few years.
