With this case, I've always listened to my heart. And, my heart tells me a vigil in not appropriate at this time. This isn't a community waiting for Amy to return. She has. This is a search for her killer. And it just doesn't feel right to mix the two. I don't know what the point would be other than a news clip.
That said, I'm not telling you not to. If some of you feel it's important and want to organize it yourselves, have at it. You can do so over at the Crimerant message board.
I'm going to remember Amy the way I do every year. I'm going to hang out in the plaza until about 3PM and then take a drive down to Ashland. You can find me at the coffee shop or Subway most likely.
In the meantime, I think the best way I can honor her memory is to keep following up on some leads that still remain.
One thing you can do, if you feel so motivated, is send an email to these two people at CleanChannel communications:
Be nice. And then kindly ask them to put some digital billboards up in October to remind people that Amy's killer has still not been found.
