Houston County murder-suicide victim Randall Kinard will be remembered in a vigil being held Sunday.
According to a Facebook post, it starts at 9 p.m. and will be at Macon's Coleman Hill on Spring Street. There will also be a balloon release Sunday at 4:30 p.m. which will also be at Coleman Hill.
Kinard was fatally shot Wednesday, according to the Houston County's Sheriff's Office, by Christopher Dukes, who then turned the gun on himself and set a Houston County home on fire. Kinard worked at a Macon salon, Azul, where co-workers called him a good friend and someone who greeted people every day with hugs.
Police believe Dukes kidnapped Kinard from Azul Wednesday around lunchtime, in a Jeep Battle owned. They say Dukes likely shot and killed Kinard as they drove along I-75 to the house. Investigators later found Kinard's drivers license and cell phone along the highway.
