The Grief Club helps Mound cope with tragedy

A serendipitous memorial is growing for a 6-year-old boy who may have been killed by his mother.

Family confirmed to 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS that Eli Hart was the boy found by law enforcement after 28-year-old Julissa Thaler was pulled over in Mound on Friday.

Sunday, during a planned 5K run from The Grief Club of Minnesota, organizers did what they do best: help people cope with tragedy.

The run was held at Back Channel Brewing, not too far from where Hart was found. There, people could write a message to the young boy and tie it to a fence with a flower.
