Officials with the Partners in the Struggle organization held a candlelight vigil for 12-year-old murder victim Yhoana Arteaga.

Dozens gathered at the Hillview Acres Mobile Home Park Thursday, Aug. 17, exactly one week after her death.

The group prayed for Yhoana's family, and hoped by gathering they would bring awareness to her unsolved murder and to "speak out against the vicious epidemic of homicides and murders that has taken so many lives this year in Nashville."

Yhoana was killed on the 10th. Her mother and siblings returned home to find her brutally murdered.
