Friends and family honored murder victim Deon Brown in a vigil Friday night.

Dion was the 24-year old found dead in a locked Western Express trucking lot -- a victim of a brutal murder.

But the gathering wasn't all about sadness; It was a true celebration of Deon's life.

Deon worked at an Antioch beauty salon, with a dream to become a celebrity hairstylist -- making friends and dancing along the way.

Those who knew him say Deon made a lot of people smile in his 24 years.

A search is still underway for the man wanted for questioning in Deon's murder.

Investigators say Christopher Gadsden drove the victim's car to Hickory, North Carolina... where it was recovered Thursday.

If you've seen Gadsden, or know where he could be, call Metro Police immediately.
