10th anniversary memorial planned for Streator boy
STREATOR, Ill. — The central Illinois city of Streator plan to mark the tenth anniversary of the bludgeoning death of a 7-year-old boy with a memorial.
The Pantagraph in Bloomington reports that a memorial is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. on Saturday outside the Streator City Hall for Dalton Mesarchik. The boy was abducted from his front yard in Streator on March 26, 2003. A fisherman found his body in the Vermilion River the next day. An autopsy showed the boy was beaten to death with a 3-pound sledgehammer that could only be purchased at a Kmart.
The boy's mother, Michelle Mesarchik, says she's still hopeful and organized the vigil to keep her son's memory alive.
