Dozens gathered at a park in Redding Saturday night to hold a vigil in memory of the two children found dead inside a Redding storage locker.

Flowers, teddy bears, candy canes and holiday stockings now cover the storage unit where the bodies of a 6-year-old boy and 3-year-old girl were found Sunday.

Community members say they are heartbroken something this horrifying happened in Redding, but they remain hopeful that this incident will shed light on such devastating issues and prevent anything like this from happening again.

The murder suspects - 39-year-old Tami Huntsman and her 17-year-old male companion - are now in custody and will be charged with first-degree murder.

They were arrested after Plumas County sheriff’s deputies responded to reports of a 9-year-old girl being abused in Quincy. The girl is recovering from serious injuries and remains hospitalized.

Information found during that welfare check led police to the Redding storage unit last Sunday.
