MONROE, La. (KNOE) - Family and friends of Qua’Darrius Moore gathered together Tuesday night at the River Walk to honor his life.

Moore was reported missing by family members last Wednesday before police discovered his body floating in the Ouachita River on Saturday.

Moore's aunt, Samantha Moore, says her nephew was a kind and loving person and will be remembered by his amazing smile. She says there are a number of unanswered questions behind how he died, but the family does suspect foul play.

"When I saw him today he was crying out for help the look on his face he was crying out for help," said Moore. "Everybody knows he would have never killed himself or suicide no, no."
