Family, friends gather to remember homicide victim

BALTIMORE (WBFF) -- A plea from a Baltimore family to help find a killer in a city in crisis. Charles Frazier is one of the latest victims as Baltimore struggles with a spate of homicides.

Frazier’s loved ones gathered at the corner of Fulton Avenue and Baker Street Wednesday night, on the eve of Frazier’s funeral. Someone shot and killed the 44-year-old man on the block one week ago.

“He was a strong man of God because he was trying to get up and still trying to walk after that bullet was in his body,” said Rev. Keith Bailey who presided over the observance.

There were candles and prayers, but at this vigil, there was also a plea to the public to help find Frazier’s killer. "Anybody out there just give the police a call. You don’t even have to say your name. Just help us, just help us to come to peace with this," said Dolene Foster, Frazier’s cousin.

Police found Frazier’s body in the street last Wednesday night, May 3. He was among 38 people killed in Baltimore in the last 30 days. So far, there’s been no arrest or suspect in Frazier’s killing, only a plea from his family for someone to come forward.

"It's ok, it's ok because you're really not going to know until you're in this situation. When you're in this situation, you will want somebody to tell," said Foster.

If you have any information about this killing or any other case you can call Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-866-7LOCK. Remember you can remain anonymous and could be eligible for a cash reward.
