Memorial dedicated in honor of Justin Bloxom

Friday, March 30, 2012 - 11:48am

STONEWALL --- A memorial was dedicated this morning at a Stonewall middle school in honor of Justin Bloxom, a 12-year old murdered 2 years ago.

In front of about 600 students, Justin's mother, Amy Bloxom, dedicated a garden in his memory at the North DeSoto Middle School.

Justin Bloxom was killed 2 years ago on March 30 when a Bossier City cab driver and registered sex offender abducted him. Officials say he was lured away from his house after being texted by the driver.

In July of 2010, Governor Bobby Jindal signed the Justin M. Bloxom Act into law. The measure severly limits convicted sex offender's access to children through the types of jobs they can hold.
