ANDERSON COUNTY, Ky. (WKYT) – It's been almost a year since an Anderson County teenager died in an accident and for his family, the pain never goes away.
"The smell of the grass takes me directly to last year," said Whitley Wise, cousin of Sydney Peffer. "We do not forget, it's something we can not forget."
Next month marks one year from the time Sydney Peffer, 17, died. He died in an accident on Alton Station Road.
"On the way to work, I noticed they were gone, they were just gone." Wise was talking about posters that said "remember Sydney". and you do not drink and drive & # 39;
"For Sydney's friends and family and for all those who missed her since she passed away, it's a comfort mechanism and the fact that I'm putting posters with her image, which is the only thing what we have left, that is all we have left, the fact that the images are being taken out and is more than likely to be taken in the trash, it is very harmful. " She says that the signs, and not leaving that the memory of Sydney dies, they are the way in which they handle pain while waiting for justice. The Sydney family has made new posters to replace the old ones in the city.
"Everyone collaborated and we have trained around 20 of them," said Wise. "I mean, if someone can see one of these signs and decide, well, maybe I should not drink and drive, saving a life is everything."
Police have not divulged the name of the teenage driver accused of The Sydney Murder.
