Members of the Cleveland community came together Tuesday evening to remember the victims of Anthony Sowell.

Sowell is currently on death row for the killings of 11 women in his home, on Imperial Ave.

It's been four years since the deadly discovery on Cleveland's East side.

Among the crowd Tuesday was Joann Moore. Moore's sister Janice Webb was one of the victims of Sowell.

"She's gone but she's definitely not forgotten," Moore said.

It was on E. 123rd and Imperial Ave. where the first victim's were discovered exactly four years ago today.

Cleveland City Councilman Zack Reed was also among the crowd. 

"If we forget these 11 women, we forget the women on 93rd. We forget the women on the West side. And we forget all the women that have been harmed, maimed and killed in this city," Reed said.

A family member of one of Sowell's victim's was upset that there's no memorial in the neighborhood where the bodies were found.

"This is what's here and this is shameful. Four years later and this is what they have here. This factory is still here. Abandoned. This house is still here. It's just sad. I'm just so ashamed to say that I live in Cleveland because of the way that the city has treated my family over the years," Donnita Carmichael said.
