Friends, family hold candlelight vigil for Abilene homicide victim


ABILENE, Texas - Friends and family members gathered together Friday to say goodbye to Kendra Keppler during a candlelight vigil at the Whittier Street home where her body was found Wednesday.

Dozens of people attended the event to pay their respects. It was organized by Laura Simons, a friend of Keppler's.

She said enough is enough.

"We want the violence to stop," Simons said. "This is getting ridiculous, people are afraid to let their kids outside."

Abilene police have not released the cause or manner of Keppler's death. APD has not released any names of any suspects yet.
