Instead of a birthday celebration, members of Gregory Tyrone Pike's family are holding a candlelight vigil to honor his memory.
The event is scheduled for 6 p.m. Sunday at the Saline County Courthouse gazebo.
Community residents are invited to attend the event being held on the day that the murder victim would have turned 20.
Pike's mother, Tinka Robins, noted that her son's body was found Jan. 27 off River Road. He had died Jan. 16, authorities reported.
Saline County sheriff's deputies are continuing to investigate the death.
Downtown Benton will host the 2013 Saline County Easter Egg hunt on Saturday, March 23, at the Saline County Courthouse.
Lisa Baldwin, coordinator of the event, noted that the hunt is a long-standing tradition, having taken place for more than 35 years.
However, she pointed out some changes that are being made "to better serve children and acquire additional volunteer help."
Chief among the changes is the date, Baldwin noted.
