Families of four teens killed seek to remember - WDRB 41 Louisville News

Four teens killed on the way home from a Youth Alive event are remembered

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB)-- Family members of four local high school students killed in a violent crash will soon have a special way of remembering them.

It's been three years since Aaron Shields, and brothers Jemar, Demar, and Marc Claybrooks were riding home from a Youth Alive event with another teen, Herbert Lee.

Lee was driving a stolen car, and tried to outrun police.

He crashed into a tree, killing his four passengers.

Their family members plan to place a rememberance marker near Woodlawn and Wilson Avenue next Sunday afternoon that they will call "The Garden of Angels".

"There's a lot of people who have lost a lot of loved ones, young loved ones. Some of them got answers and a lot of them don't. And, we need a place where anyone can go and reflect on their child in a positive light," says Marc Hampton, a father of some of the victims.

Lee was convicted of four counts of manslaughter, but was recently released from jail.
