Family remembers murder victim on her 20th birthday

FOLLY BEACH, SC (WCSC) - A somber milestone is being marked by the family of a lowcountry murder victim. Tuesday, December 30th, would have been Ariel Morgan's 20th birthday.

Her friends and family gathered at Folly Beach for a birthday celebration for the teenager who was shot dead at a Moncks Corner block party in June.

Morgan's mother says although six months have passed since her daughter's death, time cannot erase her memory.

"Ariel was a sweet young lady and she touched a lot of people's hearts," Kendra Morgan-Stevens said. "The continued support shows how good of a young person she was."

Four others were injured on the evening Morgan was killed. Despite the large number of people at the party that evening on Tish Lane, Berkeley County Sheriff's officials have not named a suspect.
