This memorial for James Kilgore, located in the 1500 block of Downing St. NE, Washington DC, is on the spot where he was killed, according to a neighbor I spoke with.
This is one of two shrines to Mr. Kilgore within a block. His family built another, larger, shrine, "with more bears, on a big tree" around the corner on Montana Ave NE, where he lived.
The neighbor told me firmly that Mr. Kilgore had been "a good guy."
Now all that's left are some bears, bottles, pictures, memories, and a cross.
