What Happened to Attempted Kidnapping of 11 Year Old Girl?

Edward Ahrens, a documented violent sex offender, was suspected of abducting the girl and fleeing south on Interstate 75 to Georgia. Knox County Sheriff’s Office Juvenile Detectives, the Technology Crimes Division and Narcotics Unit, and other Tennessee law enforcement agencies found the suspect’s car with the missing kid at about 1 a.m. on February 2.

Ahrens allegedly disobeyed officials and purposefully hit at least three investigators, causing a violent encounter. Four cops responded and shot Ahrens, who died at a local hospital. Three detectives were hit and treated at the scene with non-life-threatening injuries.

TBI verified that Aubriauna Mays, the youngster, survived the incident, providing respite from the stress. Catoosa County Sheriff Gary Sisk noted that the event highlighted the perils of sexual predators, particularly on social media.
