Heartbreaking video of murdered Eliza Fletcher singing for her students has gone viral

A video has surfaced of Eliza Fletcher, the Tennessee kindergarten teacher who was reportedly kidnapped and murdered last week, recording a song for her students.

Eliza Fletcher disappeared early Friday morning after going for a run near the grounds of the University of Memphis. Her body was found Monday behind a vacant house near where she was allegedly abducted, police said.

We are heartbroken and crushed by this senseless loss. Liza was a joy to many of her family, peers, associates, students, parents, people in her Second Presbyterian Church meeting and everyone who knew her, Eliza Fletcher’s family said in a statement. The Memphis authorities considered the murder an “exceptionally miserable day in the city”. While the outcome of this investigation is not what we expected, we are nonetheless pleased to remove this dangerous predator from Memphis roadways, Memphis Police Chief Cerelyn Davis said during a Tuesday news conference. On Sunday, police captured Cleotha Abston, 38, associated with the kidnapping and murder of the teacher. She has been charged with first degree murder as well as kidnapping.

Fletcher is the granddaughter of the late local philanthropist and businessman Joseph ‘Joe’ Orgill III, who established the Memphis hardware supply company, called Orgill. The privately held family business is currently worth $3.2 billion and is described by the company’s site as the “world’s largest independently owned hardline dealer, providing retailers in North America and more than 60 countries worldwide access to more than 75,000 items and retail benefits that drive the industry.
