(Newser) – Police are calling a 3-year-old girl "heroic" after they say she ran a mile down a busy Florida road yesterday, trying to reach her grandmother's house after her father allegedly murdered her mother. Authorities say the girl knew the way because she had walked the road with her mother several times before.
