Senath remembered a day many say changed their town forever.

One year ago, 3-year-old Breeann Rodriguez disappeared while riding her bike on Ode Johnson Road.

Her neighbor Shawn Morgan now faces charges for her murder.

According to court papers, Morgan told authorities he saw the little girl standing by his backyard pool and that he then took her inside, suffocated her with a trash bag, and threw her body into the floodway ditch.

People who remember searching for the little girl say they still await justice.

Prosecutors say Morgan's trial is set for December.

Friends say Breeann's parents, Edgar Rodriguez and Claudia Ramos have since moved out of the home and now live in Arkansas.
