CLEVELAND-- It was six years ago that we began to learn the horror on Imperial Avenue in Cleveland. The bodies of two women were found in a home owned by Anthony Sowell. Eventually nine other bodies were found.

All of the women were remembered Thursday. Doves were released at the site where they hope to build a permanent memorial to all those victims.

They had a statue of an angel; a replica of one they hope to see on the site one day. They're calling the site the Garden of 11 Angels. They're hoping it will be a big part of bringing the community back together.

It's a beautiful design featuring 11 trees-- one for each of the victims-- but all these years later, despite some commitments, fundraising is moving slowly. They're urging more people to get involved.

They have a fund set up: The Imperial Memorial Fund at any Key Bank. They promise to never give up on the hope for that memorial.
