Jenna Nielsen, 22, of Fuquay-Varina, was found stabbed to death June 14 outside a convenience store on Lake Wheeler Road across from the State Farmers Market. The pregnant mother was restocking newspaper boxes in the overnight hours when she was attacked and killed.
Nielsen's family has organized the vigil to continue focusing attention on her case – no arrests have been made – and to remember five other people who were killed in the weeks before and after her death.
Those victims are Pascual Xolo, 33; Damarkos Eugene Alan Thorpe, 30; Tyrone Robert Covington, 28; Veronica Malone, 38, and Fidencio San Agustin San Juan, 37.
