Days later, Christine Malone was found dead in a field on Bessemer Avenue.Police are still searching for her killer.

As the detective work presses on, people who live in this neighborhood are rallying.

A group gathered to call attention to the violence, passing out fliers and knocking on doors,providing women in the area knowledge on how to protect themselves against future predators.

Friday evening, a group of men camped out all night on the corner, to show support. They also made themselves available for anyone who wanted to stop by and offer information on the crimes.
