Willacoochee, GA - (WALB) Family & friends of Rosie Courdle Gaskins are inviting the public to a candlelight walk in her honor.
26-year-old Rosie Gaskins, a mother of three young children, was found dead in her car on Spring Head Church Road in Willacoochee on March 7.
A new group is also supporting the event. 'Women Who Aren't Afraid to Use Guns and Baseball Bats' is speaking out against violence against women, and is taking up the cause of the victim.
Spokeswoman Ginger Paulk tells WALB news, "We are women who want answers and justice. We are joining hands and hearts in an effort to create an awareness for those who have and continue to suffer. We are sick and tired of the way the current judicial system has and does allow the torture and murder of innocent victims."
While Rosie Gaskins is the focus of this vigil, the group wants to see more action against those who abuse women.
"We demand the capture, conviction, and punishment of those who commit these heinous crimes. We honor those who have lost their very lives to crime and we want their murderers: Doris Spillers Worrell, Tina Davis, Rosie Courdle, and Christy Dawn Myers."
The walk begins at 7:00PM Saturday at Rosie's parents' home, 147 Lowther St. in Willacoochee. They will walk down Main Street to Dollar General, to the station where Rosie worked. Participants should bring flashlights or candles.
