MAD DADs hold vigil for elderly victims

3 elderly victims of crime honored during vigil

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Members of the Jacksonville community along with MAD DADs gathered Friday night to remember victims of violent crimes on Jacksonville's westside.

Three elderly victims of crime, George Davis, Johnnie Holland and Robert Levy, were honored during Friday night's vigil.

Family and friends who gathered in Woodstock Park told Channel 4 that they are still waiting for answers in their loved one's death.

"He was minding his own business, he wasn't bothering anybody and this happens to him," remembered George Davis' son Vincent. "It seems as if um, um respect for the elderly is being lost."

George Davis was 82 when he was found dead inside his Westside home. Police said Davis was killed in a home invasion, but no one has been charged with his death.

On June 25, 83-year-old Robert Levy was also brutally beaten. Authorities found his body after his home was set on fire.

Johnnie Holland was found stabbed to death in the New Town neighborhood June 12.

The community banded together Friday, asking when will the violence against the young and old will end.

MAD DADs memorial for victims of crimes continues Saturday with a parade. Starting at 11 a.m. the group will walk a from Myrtle Ave at 19th Street and continue to New Kings Road to Edward Waters College.
