REMEMBERING THROUGH PICTURE: Family mourns on anniversary

Monday marked the second anniversary of 14-year-old Kaylin Doggendorf’s death, as her body was found less than a mile from her Pierceton home on March 19, 2010. Doggendorf, a Whitko Middle School student at the time, was murdered by 17-year-old Joshua Wright who is currently serving a 100-year sentence. Wright admitted to police that he killed Doggendorf after he broke into her house early Thursday morning, March 18, 2010. Doggendorf’s sister, Dreama, releases a balloon on Monday afternoon with a special note attached and a prayer for her sister in Heaven as a Celebration of Life gathering took place at the South Whitley AMVETS Post 2919 in remembrance of Kaylin. Afterward, friends and family gathered at the AMVETS for pizza and refreshments as photos and memories of Kaylin were shared.
