More than 200 people from the small community met at the Cordell Activity Center to pray for both families involved in the tragedy. Pastor Roy Dewees said Lane's death has had a huge impact on the small town.

"Of course we focus on the tragic loss, but that anyone involved with that incident is going to be heartbroken and have a lot of pain and questions," he said.
