EASTPOINTE, Mich. (WXYZ) - Friends and family came together Monday to remember Matthew Landry, one year after he was abducted from a sub shop in Eastpointe.
Landry was carjacked on August 9th from a Quizno's parking lot. Days later, he was found murdered in an abandoned home in Detroit.
Monday, loved ones, friends, and police who investigated his murder returned to the sub shop, the last place he was seen alive.
They wrote messages on balloons and released them. They also played Landry's favorite song, "Stairway to Heaven."
Friends and family also called for more stringent laws on repeat juvenile offenders.
The two teens suspected in Landry's killing are set to go to trial this fall.
