Five years ago Wednesday, a boy from Blue Island was struck by a hit and run driver while he was sledding with friends.

Family and friends of Robert Silva gathered to hold a candlelight vigil in his honor Wednesday night. They met at Packard and Broadway in Blue Island where Silva was sledding when he was killed. No one was ever arrested or charged.

Relatives say someone in the neighborhood knows who killed the boy, but that person is afraid to talk to authorities.
