There's a new tribute to honor Sandra Cantu, the eight-year-old girl who was kidnapped and murdered in Tracy earlier this year.Wednesday, city leaders and Sandra's family planted a tree in her name at a park right next to the elementary school she attended. The girl's favorite color was pink, so a pink crepe myrtle was chosen.

A plaque beneath the tree reads "In Remembrance Of Sandra Cantu".

The young girl's body was found in a suitcase just miles away from her home. Her neighbor, Melissa Huckaby, is waiting to stand trial.
