Vigil held for Lacey boy killed in Montana

The Associated PressJuly 19, 2013 

— About 75 people gathered in Anaconda's Washoe Park for a candlelight vigil for a 3-year-old Washington state boy who was killed July 8, about five miles south of Anaconda.

Broderick Cramer's father, Jeremy Cramer, is charged with deliberate homicide and jailed on $250,000 bail.

Two local pastors officiated Thursday's ceremony organized by Aimee Nichols and Rebecca Gallagher of Anaconda.

Anaconda resident Melissa Penner said she was there because she wanted to support Brody's mother. Penner's son, Tyler Kelly, and Brody were born just days apart.

Children brought stuffed animals and toys that will be sent to Brody's mother. Nichols says flowers donated for the service will be placed at the spot where the boy's body was found.

US Bank has set up a "Natalie and Brody Cramer Fund" to accept donations.
