Vigil attendees joined hands in a circle to remember David Josiah Lawson.
Approximately 30 people gathered in Manila yesterday to celebrate the life of David Josiah Lawson, the Humboldt State University sophomore fatally stabbed at an off-campus party April 15, 2017.
Seventeen months later Lawson's killing remains unsolved.
Saturday's vigil was led by Lawson's mother, Charmaine Lawson, and was held at his favorite local beach, near the Manila Community Center. Attendees joined hands and shared memories before tossing roses into the surf.
