Candle light vigil for Emerson Daly

There was a candlelight vigil and march on Saturday January 24 for the late Emerson Daly.

24 year old Daly was shot to the head and dumped in the river near Banana Bank.  The young Roaring Creek man was last seen last Sunday in a vehicle with an unidentified man.

When he did not return home by the following day, he was reported missing and a manhunt began, leading to the discovery of the abandoned vehicle he was driving with blood stains on the back seat.

Two days later, the already decomposing body was found floating in the water.

The assembly then made its way to the grave site  before heading back to Daly’s home where a short rally was held.

No arrests have been made in the Daly murder as yet.
