The organizers of the vigil said Caiden was the victim of child abuse and the vigil was to take a stand against child abuse, as well as to honor his “little life.”

"We won't lose the memory we won't lose the drive to continue to make sure that this won't happen again. It's a reminder to ourselves, we're still here, how do we keep that light alive," said family friend Angela Jones. 

An autopsy of the 10-month-old said the boy died from blunt force trauma. Doctors said the boy had hemorrhaging and bruising to his stomach, bruising on his right lung and hemorrhaging to the brain. 

The vigil was held Friday at 8 p.m. at Riverfront Park by the Red Flyer wagon.
