CLEVELAND – Just over one week ago the body of 14-year-old Alianna Defreeze was found in a vacant home on the city’s east side.

The teen’s alleged killer, 44-year-old Christopher Whitaker, charged with aggravated murder and given a $3 million bond.

Now, local pastors and community leaders are joining forces in an effort to prevent another tragedy.

“Sadly, she is our inspiration,” Bishop Tony Minor said.
