LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A vigil is planned tonight to mark the 9th anniversary of the disappearance and murder of Ivan Cano.

The 4-year-old disappeared in 2007 near Churchill Downs. His body was found days later in a garbage bag. 

Cecil New later pleaded guilty to abducting and murdering Ivan.

Vigil organizers plan a balloon release at 6 o'clock tonight (July 7) at Jefferson Square Park downtown. 

They hope to raise awareness of violence against children.
