Willow Long Honored during Candlelight Vigil

Posted:

WATSON -Hundreds gathered Wednesday night to remember Willow Long, the 7-year-old girl found dead in a field Monday.

Loved ones and community members flooded the lawn in front of the Watson Civic Center, first for a candlelight vigil starting at 7.

A moment of silence was later held, and people afterwards sang hymns and lullabies in unity.

Many shared their memories of Willow, from her loved ones to even her school bus driver.

Police say Long was reported missing Sunday. Her Uncle has been charged with her murder.
