With the help of an anonymous donor, the property where 6-year old Wesley Mullins was murdered last August will be bulldozed and a new office building will be built.

Mullins was found dead in the garage behind his grandfather's home on Main street. Recently, an anonymous person in Bourbon county bought the house and two others next door with the intention of building a memorial for Wesley.

Others in the community quickly jumped on board and demolition will begin Wednesday for Wesley's Place, an office building that will provide community services to help with domestic violence and child abuse.

Organizers are asking for any kind of support. They say so far they have raised fifty thousand dollars and are hoping to raise another one hundred and twenty five thousand to finish the building. They could also use building supplies or labor.

    I believe this is a good thing to do. I know he would love it that something was named after him. My heart goes out to the person that has bought this place and doing this...

    There in someone in Paris with a tremendous heart. This donor has done SO much for this community. Tim Gray: class act! I hope all of Paris jumps in to help with this project. Gray's officers are once again jumping in to volunteer and work at the site.
