Candlelight Vigil For Lowell Homicide Victim Dejah Jenkins-Minus Held In Mattapan

MATTAPAN (CBS) -- Dozens of people gathered for a candlelight vigil on Saturday outside of the childhood home of 22-year-old Dejah Jenkins-Minus, who was identified as the victim of a homicide in Lowell on Friday.

People could be seen hugging and sobbing while comforting her grieving mother. Relatives say Jenkins-Minus gave birth to a baby girl just two months ago.

Investigators say her killing was not a random act.

As of Saturday night, no arrests have been made.
