Red ribbons tie Haylee's memory to Pekin

Posted: Updated:
PEKIN, Ill. (HOI) -- -

The Pekin community continues to display its love of little Haylee Garrison and her family.

Residents are putting up red ribbons on houses and trees around the city.

Haylee was taken off life support, after her organs were donated Tuesday, her 9th birthday.

If we did red ribbons, that was her favorite color, that would show their support for the family and friends. When the family drives by they are going to see those ribbons and they're going to know that that's for their little girl, said Pekin resident Carrie Tovrea.

Haylee was shot accidentally in the throat by her cousin of a similar age.

The Pekin police have denied our request for the police report, and said "could obstruct an on-going criminal investigation.
