Eight girls from Jeff Davis Parish captured the nation's attention when a they were murdered by a serial killer that remains on the loose.
To show law enforcement that they haven't been forgotten, family members held a march through Jennings Saturday in their memory.
Friends and family prayed together, as they remembered the eight women. Rather than walk the streets of Jennings with tears in their eyes, the group marched to the rhythm of some upbeat music.
The dozens of people involved in the march were walking not only to remember the eight women's lives, but to celebrate the birthday of Laconia "Muggy" Brown, who would be 25 this week.
Laconia left behind a little boy named Jaheim, who is now four years old. Family members say he asks about his mother every day.
Those close to the victims still have many questions about what happened to their loved ones, and why no arrest has been made yet.
To whoever's behind the grisly deaths, family members have a few words they'd like to say.
"They don't have no right taking these girls life the way they did. That's somebody's loved ones, that's somebody's sister, that's somebody's mother" said Kindra Brown.
"Walk up to me and do what you did to this woman, these women, because of something they did in life, we all did wrong. We all have our ups and downs. But if this is your up, I will show you a down" said Emile Lyons.
