Vigil marks anniversary of unsolved Streator murder
A memorial service marked the 10th anniversary of a 7-year-old Streator boy’s murder.
Dalton Mesarchik disappeared from the front porch of his home while waiting for a church van to pick him up.
A day later, a fisherman found the child’s body along the Vermillion River.
He had been bludgeoned with a sledgehammer that police found in a trash bin.
The case remains unsolved.
There’s a $50,000 reward for a lead that helps investigators find the killer.
The service took place Saturday evening outside Streator City Hall.
