Dozens of family and friends gathered on Saturday afternoon to celebrate the life of a Louisville murder victim. It has been one year since 21-year-old Camden McCroskey was shot and killed. It happened at the Outer Loop Plaza last April. Recently, McCroskey's name was added Kentucky Homicide Victim's Wall at Resthaven Memorial.
"It has been a very rough and trying transition," said Mark Gunn, family friend.
One by one, family members and friends talked about why McCroskey was so special to all of them. An uncle also made a plea to some of the young people in attendance. "Just remember your actions they do affect not just yourself but everybody around you. And as you can see it's still affecting a lot of people," said Jackie McCroskey, Camden's uncle.
There was also a message to the two men charged with killing McCroskey.
"For taking Camden away from us, there are two types of justice in this world, there's the justice that we face here among men and then the real justice is the one that you're going to meet when your time comes," said Gunn.
The suspects in the case are 25-year-old James Stover and 18-year-old Jeffery Moore. Both men are scheduled to go on trial later this year.
