KNOXVILLE (WATE) - Loved ones of Chris Newsom and Channon Christian are remembering the young couple, as this week marks seven years since their brutal murders.
A crowd of people gathered at Newsom's grave site in Powell Sunday, putting down flowers and holding balloons in his honor.
Several of Christian's loved ones attended the ceremony, too.
Newsom and Christian were carjacked, raped and murdered early Jan. 2007 in East Knoxville. Four people have been found guilty in their murders.
Newsom's parents said they gather to remember the couple every year so that their stories never fade away.
"We don't want anyone to ever forget what happened to Chris and Channon and we want to keep their memory alive," Hugh Newsom, Chris Newsom's father, said.
"He used to make me laugh all the time and I'll remember that and miss that," Mary Newsom, Chris Newsom's mother, said. "He'd come in the house and he'd always stand at the door and go, ‘Hi mom,' and I miss that a lot. Sometimes I look over at the door and still see him standing there doing that."
