Baird Candle Light Vigil
GAINESVILLE - It's been 12 years since Gainesville Police Officer Scott Baird was killed in mysterious circumstances.
Kelly Gaudet read a poem to about 100 people including family, and friends as well as police who wanted to support their fallen friend, Scott Baird.
"It's just a reminder," Buddy Baird, Scott Baird's brother said.
Februrary 12th is a reminder for Buddy, the community is like family and hopes to one day find out who are the people responsible for Scott Baird's death.
"The comeradarie is amazing, I never knew the brotherhood was as tight as it is," Buddy Baird said.
Baird was removing a batting cage from the road behind Gainesville HighSchool around 4 in the morning. It was at that time a car driven by 17 year old Ira Warren hit the cage, which plowed into Baird. Baird died a short time later.
"This is still a unsolved crime," State Attorney Spencer Mann said.
Warren was eventually charged with speeding and violating a driver's license restriction.
