The Whitaker family is still waiting for justice in the death of John “Little John” Whitaker, who was killed by a suspected drunk driver in January 2005.
Each year, the Whitaker family holds a vigil to remember John.
They now clean up the sides of Robert H. Kirk Road, where he was killed, as part of the state’s Adopt-A-Highway program.
John Whitaker’s sister, Lori Whitaker, said the family picked up litter there for the first time on Nov. 7, 2009, and cleaned the roadside again Jan. 23.
John was killed on Jan. 24, 2005.
