The memorial, which is there to honor Dontae Chambers who was killed in a car accident while crossing the street back in 2020, was also the target of arson back in Sep. of last year when the family says a homeless woman set it on fire.

Aurora Fire Rescue says the memorial has also been damaged multiple times in the last two months.
