Memorial to Slain North Texas Girl Set on Fire

SAGINAW, Texas (AP) - North Texas police are trying to determine who set fire to a makeshift memorial for a 6-year-old girl found dead earlier this month and also torched a car owned by the girl's family.

Police in Saginaw, north of Fort Worth, say firefighters responded to the scene early Friday morning. The car was parked in the driveway of the home and the memorial for Alanna Gallagher, consisting primarily of stuffed animals, was in the front yard.

Authorities are investigating whether there's a link between the fires and the July 1 death of the girl.

Two teenagers discovered the girl's nude body wrapped in tarp on a Saginaw residential street. No suspect has been named in the killing.

The FBI has been assisting in the investigation and is offering a $10,000 reward.
