Vigil to be held for homeless Riverdale woman

By Greg Gelpi

A candlelight vigil will be held to remember the Riverdale homeless woman, who became a friend to many in the community.

Family and friends will gather at 6 tonight in the parking lot of the vacant gas station where Janice Cunningham, 54, often slept and was found dead Sunday. The station is on the corner of Ga. Highway 85 and Bethsaida Road in Riverdale.

Riverdale police are investigating her death as a homicide after a GBI autopsy revealed that she had been strangled and sexually assaulted.

Funeral services will be at World Changers Church International in College Park at 10 a.m. Monday.
