Family and friends of Deanna Cremin will hold a memorial service and walk for her on March 30, 18 years to the day that her killer has gone unfound.

The 17-year-old's body was found dumped behind an elderly housing complex just a few blocks from her Jacques Street home in 1995, having been strangled to death. Since then, the crime has gone unsolved.

A mass will be held in Cremin's honor at St. Anne's church at 4 p.m, according to an announcement from her family. From there, attendees will march to 419 Broadway, the former home of Cremin's boyfriend, the last person to see her alive. The group will then follow a route Cremin's boyfriend told authorities he walked with Cremin before leaving her to finish the journey home alone. The walk will finish by heading to Cremin's former home on Jacques Street.

Cremin's family hopes exposure from the event could lead information regarding her death.

"I am very determined to make sure no stone has been left unturned," her mother, Katherine Cremin, said in a written statement. "If a memory is disturbing, tell someone who knows how to look into it; you never know where it may lead."

More information on the event can be found here.
