ANCHORAGE, Alaska — The family of a man who was beaten to death last month is taking steps to remember him, even as they mourn his loss. Harvey “Charley” Albright’s family says a memorial for him is being organized this weekend.
Albright, 23, was reported missing at the end of August. Detectives suspected foul play, and found his body a week later on a riverbank. According to court documents, Albright was beaten to death at an Eagle River home by three men, who are in custody and charged with his murder.
Albright's mother says her son touched many people's lives.
“I’m anxious to get tomorrow over, and I’m afraid for the people that will be there for their hurt, because I carry their hurt -- I feel what they feel,” said Brenda Albright.
The memorial for Albright will be held at the Eagle River Lions Club Saturday at 1 p.m.
