MEMPHIS, TN -

(WMC) – Parents were taken from their children by violence on Thursday and police are still searching for the killers. Meanwhile, family and friends are gathering to remember the victims.

On Friday, loved ones of James and Danielle Alexander are expected to gather at the last place they were seen alive for a candlelight vigil.

James and Danielle were found dead in their home on Enterprise Avenue by their oldest child, a 7-year old girl, who called 911.

The newlywed couple's three other children were also in the home when their parents were killed.

Grieving family members wonder if their murders are connected to a fight caught on camera last week in which Danielle was involved. The fight was posted to Facebook on Saturday, April 19.  Police say they are investigating all possibilities.

There is no sign of forced entry and the house is surrounded by surveillance cameras, but investigators have not said if the cameras were recording.

The Alexander's family says their focus is on the couple's four children.

The candlelight vigil is scheduled for Friday at 7 p.m. in front of 2699 Enterprise; the home James and Danielle Alexander had just moved into a few months ago.

Memphis police asks anyone who has information about the double homicide to call Crime Stoppers at 901-528-CASH or go to the Crime Stoppers website here: http://memphis.crimestoppersweb.com/
