WILSON – The candlelight vigil previously scheduled for Friday night to honor the life of 5-year-old Cannon Hinnant has been canceled, according to reports.

The Wilson Times reported a new event would be in the works, with details coming “soon.” WSOC reported the vigil has been postponed to give the family more time to mourn and heal.

A GoFundMe account set up by Hinnant’s grandmother has raised nearly $400,00, with over 11,000 donors and 110,000 shares of the page.
