Stover residents hold a march and candlelight vigil in memory of three-old Blake Litton, beginning at 5:00. Jennifer Fahrer is one of the organizers:
The event is being organized as a memorial for the little boy who died a week ago today after being beaten, allegedly by his mother’s boyfriend, police say they then tried to cover up the beating by claiming he was struck by a hit-and-run driver, and also to raise awareness about child abuse:
Fahrer says any money raised during the event – they’ll be accepting donations – will be used to pay for Blake Litton’s funeral, and living expenses for Blake’s surviving siblings:
The “All About Blake!” march starts at 5:00 at Morgan County R-1 School, followed by a candlelight vigil at Stover City Park.
