People in a central Kentucky town are undertaking a big project to carry on the memory of a young murder victim.

Six-year old Wesley Mullins was murdered in his grandfather's Bourbon County garage almost a year ago.

On Wednesday, the house and garage were torn down. What was once a gruesome reminder of a brutal crime will be turned into something very positive for the city of Paris.

A new building will soon stand where the house and garage once did. It will be a non-profit office building providing space for community-based organizations. It will be called "Wesley's Place."

The entire cost of the project will be $325,000. So far, organizers have raised $50,000, so they are well on their way.

If you would like to make a donation to Wesley's Place. You can contact the Project Manager, Mark Williams at 859-533-6374 or Wesley's Aunt, Pam Jacques at 859-608-6159.

Lewis 'Buck' Ballard, the man accused of killing Wesley Mullins, is set to go to trial for the murder in October.

    This is so sad, poor little innocent Wesley, this breaks my heart. I hope the person responsible pays, gets the maximum sentence possible! This is a great Memorial for little Wesley. God Bless All involved.

    WONDERFUL! In a world where we always hear the bad news, its great to hear that something useful and positive will come from such a negative act. I know Wesley is smiling with the angels to see that this is happening. Prayers & Blessings to all involved with the story. Thank you WKYT for reporting on the good for a change!
