On a beautiful and cloudless Sunday afternoon at Anchorage's Point Woronzof, about a dozen volunteers and loved ones visited the beach below to remember the two people fatally wounded there three days earlier.

Sarah Davies, the artist behind the 100Stone art installation on the beach -- where 19-year-old Selena Annette Mullenax was discovered dead and 20-year-old Foriegnne Aubert-Morissette was found with injuries from which he later died Thursday morning -- had sent out an invitation to join "a community effort to memorialize the loss of these two lives and honor those who live on."

Several members of Selena's family -- mother Rose and father Emil Mullenax, as well as some of her siblings -- arrived shortly after Sunday's event began. Pausing occasionally to support each other and share a bout of tears, they left a bouquet of flowers on a rock covered with frozen blood where one of the victims was discovered, then began to color rocks with Davies and place them atop the bloodstain as part of an impromptu memorial.
