Jaralee Underwood was abducted June 29 while collecting money on her newspaper route. Hundreds of residents helped search the area around Pocatello for days before the girl's body was pulled from the Snake River after the man police believe kidnapped and killed her revealed her whereabouts.
James Edward Wood, 45, was arrested and police found the girl's body the next day along the Snake River in Idaho Falls. The FBI sent in a team of five forensics experts earlier in the week to help with the investigation.
