Darren Byas' teddy bear & cross

This shrine, consisting only of two small white teddybears, one bearing a cross, has been erected to Darren Byas in a slender tree in the 3500 block of 7th St SE, Washington DC.
He was killed in this block on Jan 9, 2009. Police said they have no suspect in his shooting.

On 9/29/08, I photographed remnants of the crime scene tape for Aaron Thomas, who was killed about 100 feet from this shrine. Shreds of it were still flapping in the cold winter wind.

So much trouble in this world.

I was passing near this shrine on March 25, 2009, and found that
the memorial has been added to considerably since I first photographed it in early February.

Somebody cares.
