Around 300 people, many children included, were at the vigil-just a few hundred meters from where 35-year-old Terri Harris had been found dead with her childhood, 13-year-old John Paul Bennett, Lacey Bennett 11 yrs Old and 11-year-old Lacey’s friend Connie Gent.
A Killamarsh 31-year-old guy has been detained and the police have not looked for anybody else for the murder.
A neighbor added that she understood that Connie was having a Sleepover at Chandos Crescent house.
Some individuals put candles, some brought teddies and flowers into homage.
There were tears as the pastor of Killamarsh Church on the Street, David Taylor, led the attendees in a prayer.
Mr Taylor said: “I’m not enjoying today. It’s a very sad today but it’s absolutely incredible that so many people have joined us tonight.
“What do you say at time like this? It’s so difficult.”
The pastor added: “I can’t give you any answers. I don’t have the answers. But each one of you is here to remember four people who are no longer with us.
“And it is a day that we’ll all remember because this doesn’t happen in Killamarsh. But it has.
“Some of you know the family; some of you know the children; some of you will have never seen them before.
“But you’re all here to show your respect. On behalf of the family I just say, ‘thank you’.”
Earlier, John and Lacey’s father Jason Bennett spoke to Sky News as he laid flowers outside the property where the group was found.
“I’m broken, I just want to kiss my babies,” he told Sky’s Becky Johnson. “I just want to kiss them and hold them. TikTok queen and my beautiful boy, they were beautiful. Kindest people you could ever meet.”
Writing on Facebook, Mr Bennett added: “My beautiful boy John and beautiful daughter Lacey have been taken away from me.
“Their mum Terri also lost her life and Lacey’s best friend was also taken away from this world.”
Mr Bennett said he had been making a four-hour journey home when he was told of the deaths, adding that it had “absolutely broken my heart into a million pieces”.
“I didn’t protect my beautiful babies enough from the monsters and now they have been suddenly taken away from me.”
