Legacy of murdered DCF worker Tracey Bagwell lives on

by Britt Kennerly, FLORIDA TODAY, September 4, 2014.

Rather than dwell on the horrible way Tracey Bagwell died, family and friends honor how she lived. The 12th Annual Tracey Bagwell Caribbean Island Party benefits the Children's Home Society of Florida's transitional living program for girls.

Rose Marie Bagwell and Chanel Bagwell Martin shared a quiet evening and carrot cake — Tracey's favorite — with Tracey's grandchildren, two little girls she never met.
Thirteen years after Tracey's murder at the hands of a co-worker at the Florida Department of Children and Families, her birthday, Sept. 3, is "a bummer of a day," said Bagwell, Tracey's mom and a Cocoa resident.
"We really keep it low-key."
Rather than dwell on the horrible way Tracey died, however, family and friends honor how she lived.
So the "party" is this Saturday, at the Radisson Resort at the Port. That's when the 12th Annual Tracey Bagwell Caribbean Island Party kicks off at 6:30 p.m. Proceeds benefit the Children's Home Society of Florida's transitional living program for girls 12 to 17.
The fundraiser comforts Tracey's family, with the knowledge that Tracey's desire to see young women succeed lives on. Donations help girls who might need assistance, as they get started in adult life, with first and last month's rent, or buying a car to get to work, or other necessities.
"I guess this is kind of my shrine to her," Bagwell said of the fundraiser. "I think Tracey would be proud. ... I think in some way it gave me a purpose, to honor her, because she was such an awesome kid."
That awesome kid, in turn, loved children, no matter their lot in life.
In June 2001, Tracey Bagwell was 36 years old, a devoted single mom and UCF graduate working out of DCF's Rockledge office as a foster care caseworker. She was deeply attuned to the needs of young people, those who knew her say.
Bagwell had just returned home from a Caribbean vacation and, on the Sunday before she died, had lunch with family.
That Tuesday, June 5, she died in a church parking lot.
Investigators concluded Bagwell was lured there and murdered by Candice Fiore, 50, a co-worker and adoptions supervisor who had forged Bagwell's signature in a scam to embezzle more than $100,000 in funds set up for foster children in DCF's care.
They speculated Bagwell had learned what Fiore had done: Bagwell had been questioned at work about vouchers for some of those funds, but "her name was even misspelled on them," her mother said.
But family members said Bagwell was so devoted to the kids whose cases she oversaw, they're not surprised she responded to a call to her pager at 10 p.m., and wound up in the parking lot of Merritt Island First Baptist Church.
There, investigators said, Fiore stabbed Bagwell more than 30 times. Bagwell's body was found in her car, still buckled into her seat belt, the next day.
Within 48 hours, Fiore was not only the suspect but was dead, too.
Evidence started to mount when Bagwell's pager, which she always carried, was missing. When law enforcement officials dialed the number, the call back was traced to Fiore's home, where in addition to the pager and a bad cut on Fiore's left hand, blood was found on Fiore's shoes. Still, Fiore denied killing Tracey Bagwell. The next day, Fiore was found dead after falling from the second floor balcony of her mother's condominium.
Though a retired agent and profiler for Florida Department of Law Enforcement thought it was accidental, police ruled the fall a suicide and closed the case after identifying Fiore as the killer.
Chief Deputy Doug Waller of the Brevard County Sheriff's Office went to high school with Bagwell. In a small place like Merritt Island, word of her death spread quickly, he said.
"Everybody knows everybody and the Bagwell family has been part of the community for a very long time and is loved and respected," he said.
"So when it started coming out, it was like, 'Wow.' One of those things you don't expect, at 5 in the afternoon, to come across the victim of a violent murder, left in a car ... the car was there an entire day. People parked next to the car; moved around it doing their daily business."
Fiore's husband and sons were "victims as well, with no knowledge of what, why, how," Waller said.
Rose Bagwell has met members of Fiore's family in the years since and said they were "lovely people."
"They were all very sorry this happened ... it wasn't anybody's fault except Candy's," she said.
Chanel Bagwell Martin was 17 and a student at Merritt Island High, her mother's alma mater, when her mom was slain. She lived with her maternal grandparents after the murder.
Now 30 and living in Atlanta, she's married and the mother of a 4-year-old and a 2-year-old.
The outpouring of love after her mom's death amazed Martin.
"I had no idea that so many people had cherished my mom," she said. "She was so strong ... she worked three jobs at one point to support us. She came home so tired, but always wanted to know about my day ... I don't think I could ever do what she did."
The support has been overwhelming, Bagwell agreed.
"To this day, hardly a week goes by that I don't run into somebody who says, 'Oh, I knew Tracey,'" she said. "It's amazing, how many lives she touched in the 36 years that she was here, really."
She doesn't believe in closure.
"There isn't a day goes by that I don't wish she was here ...
people always say, 'Oh, she's in a better place,'" saidBagwell, whose husband, dentist Bill Bagwell, died in 2009.
"But how could she be in a better place? Her better place was here ... She wanted to live. She fought to live. I don't think there's any closure, not when you lose them like that."
So while family doesn't "celebrate" Tracey's birthday, they think of her daily. Wonder what could have been: She hoped to earn her master's degree. And at the fundraiser, they're reminded what others might achieve because once upon a time, a vibrant young woman had a heart for children.
Random stories about her mother are like sweet messages from beyond for Chanel Martin. Once, at a Walmart, a clerk asked if she was related to Tracey Bagwell.
"She said, 'You look just like her," and she just burst out in tears," Martin said.
"She said, 'Your mom saved my life, with the way she guided me'... It's wonderful, knowing what my mother did for her and so many people.
