Kathlynn was abducted and later killed by Michael Klunder

A Webster County teenager who was abducted and killed last month will be laid to rest Thursday.

A memorial service for Kathlynn Shepard is scheduled for 1 p.m. at South-East Webster-Grand Middle School in Boxholm.

The service is open to the public.

Kathlynn and another teenager were abducted from a bus stop in the town of Dayton on May 20th. The other girl escaped to safety. Volunteers spent the next two weeks searching hundreds of miles of ground for Kathlynn.

Her body was finally found in the Des Moines River last week.

Authorities say Kathlynn was abducted by Michael Klunder. He was found dead from an apparent suicide on the night of the abduction.
