Families in the Rosemont neighborhood came together Saturday for the 5th annual Community Event, held at the Rosemont Community Park and put on by the Community Foundation and Association.
“This feels like a celebration. This community finally feels safe,” one resident told FOX40.
Nearly 520 days after 13-year-old Jessica Funk-Haslam’s body was found in the Rosemont Park, the Sacramento Sheriff’s Department had a break in the case. Investigators arrested 23-year-old Ryan Douglas Roberts and charged him with the murder of Funk-Haslam earlier this week.
Community leaders estimate nearly 1,000 people showed up to the park Saturday.
