Daily Outrage: Grandma dies protecting granddaughter from kidnapper 

WHAT: An obsessed child kidnapper in Texas, who earlier apparently failed to abduct two victims, shot and killed Sharrell Blackenburger, the grandmother of a 12-year-old girl she was fighting to save from being kidnapped at a gas station.

HOW IT ENDED: Gary Carner, 58, drove away with the girl, but several witnesses alerted by the struggle called police to describe Carner’s truck. Carner even managed to kidnap another 11-year-old girl shortly afterward, but was caught and killed a few hours later.

TRIBUTE: Both girls were not injured. Twelve-year-old Cassidy is home in San Diego and said she will honor the memory of her grandmother by wearing her wedding ring around her neck every day.
