Somber night in Rapid City as family, friends remember Myers

Posted:

Friends and family are still mourning the loss of Morgan Lee Myers of Rapid City, who was stabbed to death by her former ex-boyfriend last year.

A candlelight vigil for Myers and her unborn child took place in the parking lot of the North LaCrosse Street Walmart.

Many gathered to honor and pay tribute to Myers and her unborn baby.

Candles were lit, memories and poems were shared, and a verse from 'Amazing Grace' was sung for the two.

Purple shirts and ribbons were also worn, as a tribute not only for Myers' favorite color, but also for domestic violence awareness everywhere.

Feelings and emotions were also very uniform, as many feel like the tragedy just happened.

Although family members of the mother of four were unable to speak due to the ongoing case, others spoke of Myers, who say she touched everyone who knew her.

"We all miss her every day," said close friend and former co-worker, Amber Thompson. "It's the little things that remind you of her, going to the softball field, remind you of her."  

Another close friend and former co-worker, Kim Ault, also expressed her emotions. "She had so much zest for life," said Ault. "And she loved her children very much, and she was just amazing."

No trial date has been set for Michael Young, due to several delays, including a change of defense attorneys.

Right now, the case hinges on a psychological evaluation.

A hearing is set for may 20th.
