Several hundred people gathered on campus Thursday night to honor the memory of an East Carolina University killed in an accidental fall.

The candlelight vigil in memory of Jonathon Scott Bennett, 21, who died after he fell from a tree onto a metal post, was hosted by friends at the Student Memorial Garden on ECU’s main campus.


Among those who participated were friends Bennett knew through several campus organizations, including Tau Kappa Epsilon fraternity, Student Ambassadors and ECU Intramural Sports.
