Vigil marks ten years since Cesar Ivan Cano's body was found

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- It has been ten years since a 4-year-old boy disappeared near Churchill Downs.

Cesar Ivan Cano's body was found in the back of a garbage truck days later, in July of 2007.

Cecil New eventually pleaded guilty to murder, kidnapping, tampering with physical evidence and unlawful transaction with a minor. He's serving a life sentence in prison.

A vigil will be held Friday night at 6:30 at Wagner's Pharmacy to honor the life of Cano.

Micheshia Norment will kickoff her awareness campaign, Justice for Lil 1's. Her son, Dequante Hobbs, Junior, was shot and killed while sitting at his kitchen table in May. Norment plans to build a memorial for Cano in the location where he disappeared.
