Candlelight Vigil Held For Henri Pratt, Stabbed To Death after Breaking up a Fight
By MATT ACKLAND/myfoxdc
CLINTON, Md. – Family and friends of Henri Pratt gathered together Wednesday night to remember the loss of a young father. The gathering was also used to bring attention to the violent way he died.
According to friends, the 26-year-old tried to break up a fight while riding on a party bus early Sunday morning. When Pratt got off the bus along Hastings Drive in Capitol Heights, he and another man were stabbed.
Pratt’s friends said there were a lot of people on the party bus when the altercation broke out. Friends say at least 60 others were on board. But what is so upsetting to Pratt’s friends and family is that no one on the bus has come forward with information to help find the suspect.
Pratt leaves behind a three-year-old daughter named Londyn, who is too young to understand the violence that claimed her father’s life. But friends fear the loss she has to experience will certainly take a toll on her life in the future.
Prince George’s County Police are still looking for information in this case and they have no suspects.
FOX 5 asked one person who was on the bus about the fight. He said he heard the verbal fighting on the bus, but he did not witness the violence off the bus.
The other victim who was stabbed, a 24-year-old male, is expected to recover.
