People gathered with candles, prayed and sang, and released balloons in Davis' memory.

"It's just hard," says Shaqala Davis, Jayceon's mother. "I really don't understand."

After the vigil, some also took it as an opportunity to remember to speak up anytime there are possible signs of child abuse so that tragedy can be avoided.
