Juliani Cardenas honored by motorcycle ride
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Hundreds of people in the North Valley took part in a memorial ride in honor of a murdered 4-year-old boy.
About 700 people showed up for the motorcycle ride from Patterson to Modesto Saturday, in memory of Juliani Cardenas.
His body was found last week in the Delta-Mendota Canal after authorities say his mother's ex-boyfriend kidnapped him and drove him into the water.
At the end of the ride, Juliani's mother met with the aunt of Sandra Cantu, she's the 8-year-old Tracy girl who went missing and was found murdered in 2009.
"It gives you a feeling of control that you don't have just thinking of Juliani and Sandra...they're in heaven playing together in heaven, I know."
"She knows what I'm going through...she's been there. She said that we're in a club that we don't want to be in," Tabitha Cardenas said.
Investigators still have not found Juliani's alleged kidnapper, Jose Rodriguez...but they believe his body is also in the canal.NEWS BY LOCATION | ABC30 BLOGS | DISCUSSION FORUMS
