Longview holds prayer walk in memorial for slain homeless woman

They're refusing to let a homeless woman's death be in vain, so the city of Longview says it's taking a stand against violence.

This morning nearly 50 Longview citizens, community leaders, and friends of Cynthia Weaver gathered in her honor.

The memorial included songs and prayers.

After the tribute, east Texans lined Longview streets in a prayer walk, vying to put a stop against violence in the community.
