PEORIA, IL (HOI) – It has been one month since Kayla Fannon was shot and killed by her ex-boyfriend, David Jenkins.
Thursday night, Kayla’s friends gathered outside of the Peoria Police Station to remember the woman they say the system failed.
“No justice, no peace. No justice, no peace.”
The group marched in front of the police station and shared memories of Kayla. They also released balloons with special notes to fly high in the sky with Fannon.
“It’s not just about Kayla,” said close friend Brittany Hearton. “It’s about our community as well, to prevent things like this from happening to another female, a male. There’s all types of victims out here.”
Hearton says they will continue to gather outside of the police station on the 14th of every month until Fannon is “given justice.”
