Spartanburg County Sheriff's Office hosted a special annual event for Upstate victims of violent crimes and other tragic events on Thursday.

This year Spartanburg County deputies held the twenty-sixth Annual Candlelight Service for Remembrance and Hope at Morningside Baptist Church on Pine Street in Spartanburg. 

The purpose of the event was to remember loved ones and offer comfort, support and encouragement to victims who attended.

Just weeks after an arrest in the case of the Superbike murders, family members of victims were among those at the vigil on Thursday evening to partake in a night of prayer and reflection.

Chaplains and victim advocates from the Spartanburg County Sheriff's Office offered the event for free, and it was open to the public.

A reception followed the service.
