The Jimmy Ryce Center
On September 11, 1995, 9-year-old Jimmy Ryce was abducted, raped and murdered at the hands of a sexual predator on his way home from school.
For three months, his parents led a massive search. Little Jimmy was “everyone’s son.” On December 9, 1995 Juan Carlos Chavez was arrested. The entire community mourned. Jimmy’s funeral on December 30, 1995 was befitting a head of state.
The Jimmy Ryce Center provides AKC bloodhounds free to law enforcement to find abducted and lost children.
