Slain Scott County mom remembered with balloon release, candle-light vigil


GEORGETOWN, Ky. (WTVQ) – On Saturday night, friends and family of Sheena Baxter held a candle-light vigil and balloon release to celebrate her life and what would’ve been her 34th birthday.

In February 2020, the 32-year-old mom of three went missing after stepping outside her home in Georgetown.

Balloons were released into the air with messages of love and remembrance.

Her only sister, Christa Crumley tells ABC 36 the fight is not over, in regards to the upcoming murder trial of the person accused in her death.

“She does have backup. I’m her older sister, I feel like I should’ve been there to do something more to help her so now it is my time. I’m going to make sure this ends good and right,” says Crumley.

The family says there’s a status hearing for Baxter’s case on June 28.

The trial date is set for Aug. 23-31, but it could go on longer.
