Friends and former classmates will hold a candlelight vigil in Tempe on Tuesday for 1984 murder victim Christy Ann Fornoff.
The vigil will begin at 7 p.m. at Selleh Park, 2425 S. Los Feliz Drive, near Curry Elementary School, before moving on to Christy's childhood home on East Concorda Drive. The vigil will conclude in front of the apartment complex at 2045 S. McClintock Drive where she was killed on May 9, 1984 while collecting newspaper subscription payments for her Phoenix Gazette newspaper route.
Fornoff was abducted, sexually assaulted and suffocated to death by Donald Beaty, who was a maintenance supervisor at what was the Rock Point Apartments complex at the time.
Beaty, 56, who has been on death row since July, 1985, is scheduled to die by lethal injection at an Arizona Department of Corrections prison in Florence at 10 a.m. Wednesday.
