Prayer vigil held for two recent homicide victims

DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) — Dayton community members gathered Saturday to mourn the victims in two recent homicides.

Prayer vigils were held for 24-year old D’Yountay Pullen and Jacob Baker.

Mourners said they have had several vigils in the same neighborhood for homicide victims. They say it’s important to reach out to families going through a difficult time due to neighborhood crime.

“This nation we live in needs prayer, and God is the only answer to what’s going on, and we try to put our trust in man and we fail. So we’ve got to lean and depend on something that will never fail us,” said Linda Parrish who was at the vigil. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
