Family and friends hosted a vigil for Kristyn Richerson on Aug. 18. Another is scheduled for the 25th.

A woman who has been missing since May isn’t forgotten, at least as far as her family and friends are concerned.

Kristyn Richerson’s fate has been the subject of a lot of police action, even briefly arresting two people of interest in what police considered to possibly be her murder.

Carl Bryce and Cody Ray Campbell were initially jailed in the case after police heard witnesses saying one of them had stabbed Richerson to death and buried the body. The pair were also alleged to have been selling and giving away Richerson’s property, and Bryce may have been the last person to have seen her alive en route to Rocklahoma in the spring. Richerson’s cell phone, however, never left Muskogee.

Police dug up a place in Richerson’s back yard and did discover bones, but they belonged to an animal.

On this Saturday, family and friends are hosting a vigil and fundraiser to gather reward money for information leading to Richerson’s whereabouts. The group will also print flyers, signs and car magnets, with the hopes that she is still alive and can be found.

The event happens at Yorktown Alley, 1227 N. York, at 8 p.m. The public is welcome.
