A makeshift memorial for Whitney Houston at the New Hope Baptist Church in Newark, where she attended as a child.
This is an example of a 2010 memorial at the University of Virginia for Morgan Harrington, a Virginia Tech student who disappeared while going to a nearby rock concert and whose skeleton was discovered at a farm. People from all over the state left paintings, pins, posters, and rocks on a bridge near the area where she was last seen alive. Because she was from one major state university and the case happened near another university, more people were interested in this incident. There was also a political statement, with the “MURDERED” markups on the missing signs.
