Memorials removed
Oct, 03 2006 - 6:40 AM

EDMONTON, ALBERTA/630 CHED - It appears the city is quietly stripping roadside memorials from locations where people have died in crashes or have been murdered.

Only days after a memorial was erected on 97th Street southbound near where a young man died in a fiery crash early Saturday, city crews moved in to remove it.

A City spokesman told the Sun it's not "standard practice" to move in so quickly.

CHED News can confirm another high profile roadside memorial vanished late last week.

It was set on Argyll Road at 76th Avenue on the spot where model Lily Tran died in a gang-related shooting on September 9th.

It's possible but unlikely that friends of the murdered woman took it down.

When the city removes a memorial, the items are kept for six months so friends or family can collect them.
