ELKHART — Family and friends of Tiana Alter will gather Thursday evening for a candlelight vigil in remembrance of the slain Elkhart teen.

The vigil will begin at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 7, at the Roosevelt Center, 215 E. Indiana Ave., Elkhart.

Attendees are asked to bring candles and donations to help Alter’s family cover funeral expenses.

Alter was found dead in a home on C.R. 1 Saturday, Nov. 2. The coronor ruled her death a homicide and said she was killed by multiple sharp force injuries.

Michael Shoun, 26, was arrested at the scene on unrelated charges, but the Elkhart County Sheriff added a charge of murder to his arrest Wednesday, Nov. 6.
