FAIRFIELD — Families of violent crime victims are invited to a 5 p.m. Thursday meeting where plans are being finalized for a remembrance float in Fairfield’s Fourth of July parade.
The event is being organized by Lisa Gutierrez, the mother of Jesus “Jessie” Amaya, who was gunned down Feb. 1, 2012, in a robbery-turned-homicide. One man was convicted in the slaying in August 2013. Another suspect, believed to be the triggerman, remains at large.
Thursday’s meeting is at the Starbucks, 700 Texas St. For more information, call 720-8644.
