Family and friends of Deanna Cremin will gather together this weekend in Somerville to mark the 19th anniversary of her murder, which remains unsolved.
The group will unveil a memorial wreath her father has arranged every year since her death. The gathering will be held at 2:30 p.m. at Deanna Cremin Square, at the corner of Temple and Jacques streets.
The event includes a brief speaking program and a moment of silence as well as a release of 19 balloons, each signifying a year without her. Following this event there will be a 4 p.m. Mass at St. Ann's in the lower church.
The Friends of Deanna Cremin also announced the Somerville Board of Alderman passed a resolution requesting an update from the Middlesex district attorney's office on the status of the investigation of the murder of Deanna Cremin for this anniversary and for every anniversary until this murder is solved.
Deanna Cremin had just turned 17 when she was strangled on her way home in March 1995.
