EASTPOINTE, Mich. (WWJ) – Family and friends of a 33-year-old Eastpointe woman who was found shot to death in her home Saturday are holding a candlelight vigil in her remembrance tonight. The vigil is being organized by Jackie Bobcean, who was a good friend of Christina Webster and her family.
It’ll be held at the Big Top Cafe,” Bobcean said. “It’s south of 9 Mile on Gratiot, on the west side of Gratiot, in the Eastbrook Commons.”
After receiving a call asking that someone check on Webster, Eastpointe Police officers went to Webster’s home in the 23000 block of David Avenue, near Kelly Rd. and Gratiot, where they found her body. She had been shot in the chest. Police say the woman’s 2000 white Lexus SUV, with gold trim, had also been taken. The license plate is CHA 5821.
Webster and her husband, Anthony, co-owned the Big Top Popcorn shop. As of this morning, Eastpointe Police say there’s been no sign of him.
“Right now, we’re just praying that he’s found,” Bobcean said. “You know, wherever he may be, that he’s found.”
In the meantime, Bobcean says Christina Webster did a lot for people in the community and will be sorely missed.
“She was very, very loved in the community. She not only loved Big Top Popcorn, but she deeply, deeply loved her community and working in it.”
The vigil at the Big Top Cafe is scheduled for 6pm.
