Teen Boy Arrested for Murder of 10-Year-Old Girl

A teen boy was arrested Saturday for the murder of 10-year-old Kiaya Campbell, said the Thornton Police Department.

Campbell went missing Wednesday in Thornton, Colorado, sparking a search that lasted two days–Investigators discovered her body on Friday.

She was active on YouTube, posting videos about video games, pranks, and Pokemon playing cards. Her mother Chantel Campbell started a GoFundMe page to help pay for the funeral. It has already surpassed its goal of $10,000 after a day.

It is unclear if the suspect, a juvenile, has an attorney.
