Li'l Chris | Memorial 5300 block of 85th Avenue, New Carrolton

I documented this shrine to Christoper "Lil Chris" Smith, at the edge of a basketball court, very near the New Carrolton Metro station.

Candles, bears, and evocations of the sacred heart of Jesus were gathered and displayed in his memory.

From a PG Police report: The Prince George’s County Police Department’s Homicide Unit is investigating the murder of Christopher Donald Smith, 16, in New Carrollton, Maryland. On February 6, 2012, at approximately 10:45 p.m., a passerby observed a body along a wood line near the 5300 block of 85th Avenue and called 911. Patrol officers responded and found Smith, of Landover, lying near a sediment pond suffering from an apparent gunshot wound. He was pronounced dead on scene.

See GoryPG to follow the situation.
