CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Friends of 57-year-old Marsha Carroll and members of the Northeast Ohio Coalition for the Homeless gathered to remember the woman who was found brutally murdered in Cleveland.
A community gathering near East 79th Street and Chester Avenue was held Monday afternoon.
Carroll, who frequently stayed at homeless shelters in Northeast Ohio, died on Feb. 14 after being beaten to death outside of a home on East 79th Street approximately a week earlier.
Attendants to the vigil remembered Carroll as someone who was always smiling and singing.
Witnesses described to investigators that her alleged murderer, 26-year-old Deointa Campbell, pummeled Carroll’s face, left, and then returned to resume attacking her before fleeing again.
Campbell was arrested by Cleveland police and charged with murder.
