Saginaw suspect letter to mom: "I love you, I'm sorry"

Posted: Updated:

The alleged teen killer of a Saginaw girl left a note for his mom saying "I love you, I'm sorry" according to a search warrant for the teen's home.

Tyler Holder, 17, remains hospitalized after gunfire was exchanged Tuesday when police went to arrest him for the murder of 6-year-old Alanna Gallagher.

Authorities then spent more than a day going through Holder's house, which is just two house's down from Gallagher's, to collect evidence.

The most notable item found, according to the search warrant, was the sealed letter Holder left for his mom with the words "I love you, I'm sorry" on the envelope.

A little girl's purple Timex watch with pink flowers on it was also found in the house. Police knew the watch was missing and were looking for it.

Other items investigators took from Holder's house include: girl's underwear, adult movies, drug paraphernalia, red duct tape, paper towels w/red blood, several opened and unopened condoms, women's jewelry, plastic bags and rope w/various knots.

Gallagher was found dead on July 1. Several children found her body on Roundrock Drive and Cindy Lane. Witnesses said it was wrapped in a tarp, her legs and feet were bound and she had a plastic bag over her head.

The girl lived less than two miles from where her body was found.
