BEMIDJI -- Almost everyone walking on Saturday had a name to say or a picture to show -- almost everyone had a story to tell.

Natasha Kingbird told the story of 35-year-old Krista Fisherman from Redby, who was stabbed in a Bemidji parking lot in 2015. Francine Jackson-Senogles told the story of her 19-year-old niece, Jojo Boswell, who was never heard from again after she walked out of the Steele County Jail in Owatonna in 2011.
