Returning to the place where their loved one’s body was dumped. The family of 18-year-old Davonta London say, since his death, it’s been hard.

“It’s real heavy on my heart and I can’t explain the feeling because it’s unexplainable” said Lisa London, Grandmother of Davonta London.

Police say, last Wednesday, the 18-year-old was shot and killed, his body was then taken to a BREC park and pushed out of a car. His grandmother says, today was the first time it hit her, her precious grandchild is gone.

“They think I’m so strong because I never let them see my weakness so today when I broke down my baby girl brought me home and I had to just lay down and relax” said London.

Surrounded by friends and family, his mother Kenya London shed tears, bowing her head to pray and releasing balloons from the very hands that touched her son a week ago.

Standing at the spot where her son’s was tossed, It was too much for London to talk. His grandmother says, though the journey to healing will be long, forgiving her grandson’s killers will help bring them peace.

“I forgive them, they don’t know what they were doing, yes in their minds, they think they do because they live in that world, but I live with God.”
