FAIRFIELD, Ohio - A Fairfield family is marking a painful anniversary on Monday.
It has been six months since Chelsea Johnson, 15, was murdered, but the family is determined to keep her memory alive.
Chelsea’s grandparents are calling for everyone in the community to gather together for a candlelight vigil on Monday evening.
The teen was found stabbed to death on April 15 near a creek bank behind Brookfield Drive near Pleasant Avenue.
Chelsea went missing from home to go fishing with some friends but never returned. No one has been charged yet in the case.
That is why her family says it is important to keep her memory alive as they heal from the tragedy.
The vigil is Monday night at 6 p.m. at Options Academy where Chelsea was a freshman.
Organizers are asking everyone who wants to come to bring a purple balloon to be released in her honor. Purple was her favorite color.
