The Walnut Avenue Women’s Center and Lelo, a Swedish company that sells “adult intimate products,” have partnered to establish a memorial garden in honor of Shannon Collins.
Collins, the co-owner of downtown’s Camouflage, was stabbed to death in May 2012 as she walked along Broadway to a hair appointment. The man accused of killing her, Charles Edwards, has a lengthy history of mental illness and drug abuse, and has served multiple stints in prison. He faces trial on murder charges.
On Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., volunteers will begin work on a garden memorializing Collins at the women’s center, located at 303 Walnut Ave.
