GADSDEN, AL (WBRC) -

A candlelight vigil will be held at the home of a man who was found dead on his porch in Gadsden.

Garry Stokes was found by a neighbor shortly before 8 a.m. Saturday, March 7.

Family members are holding the vigil at 6 p.m. Friday the Stokes residence.

They want the public to keep the case in the back of their minds and to come forward if they have any information that can help police.

Family members believe whoever killed Stokes lured him away from the home, killed him somewhere else and dumped his body on his porch.

Authorities believe Stokes may have been stabbed to death but are waiting on the results of an autopsy. Anyone with information on the case should contact the Gadsden Police Department at 256-549-4578.
