Candlelight Vigil Remembering Man Beaten by Teens

Posted:

Decatur- Saturday night family and friends remembered Jerry Newingham with a candlelight vigil.

Four years ago, he was brutally beaten in Decatur by a group of teenage boys.

In hopes of keeping his memory alive, everyone started walking at dusk from 940 W. Cushing to the murder scene. That's on the 500 block of West Sawyer Street.

They were chanting "stop the violence" through Decatur streets.
