Balloon release marks murdered Chesterfield teen’s birthday

CHESTERFIELD, Va. (WTVR) — Today friends and family gathered at Iron Bridge Park for a vigil to celebrate what would have been Matthew McDaniel’s 20th birthday.

While walking home from a party last May, McDaniel was shot only a few hundred feet from home. Chesterfield Police still have yet to find the shooter.

McDaniel’s family and friends gathered Sunday to release balloons in honor of his birthday.

Anyone with any information about McDaniel’s death should contact Crime Solvers at 748-0660. There is a reward being offered.
