MARSHALL, TX (KSLA) -

The group "Marshall Against Violence" has planned a candlelight memorial tonight for Sharon "Birdie" Leonard. The 52-year-old Leonard was found dead Saturday night on Scotts Quarters Road near Loop 390.

Police are still trying to answer questions surrounding her death. What they do know is that was found near her home, lying face down next to the road. Police also say her purse was underneath her, and her cell phone and one shoe were off to the side.

Tonight's vigil will be at 6 p.m. on Scotts Quarters Road and Harleton Road, where her body was found. Family members are at a loss for being able to heal until they know exactly what happened to her.

Leonard's body has been sent for autopsy. Investigators are asking that anyone who may have seen Leonard or know where she was before her body was discovered contact the Marshall Police Department at 903-935-4578 or Crimestoppers at 903-935-9969.
