Group pursues memorial to slain NIU student
For nearly two years, a white cross in Prairie Park has served as a memorial for Antinette “Toni” Keller.
But Keller family supporters hope to replace it with a “truer tribute” that reminds people of Keller’s cheerful personality, which is why they started a fund to install a steel sunflower-shaped bench near the park in her memory.
Keller, a freshman studying art at Northern Illinois University, was last seen Oct. 14, 2010, when she told friends she was going for a walk in Prairie Park. Burned remains were found in the park two days later, and it took forensic analysts about a week to determine that they were human.
