The ceremony for Joshua Torrance was held Saturday at the Greater Fair Hill Baptist Church on Hamilton E. Holmes Drive in Northwest Atlanta.

Torrance had just graduated from BEST Academy in Atlanta. He had dreams of becoming an architect, said his uncle Brian Keith Williams, who noted he acquired $50,000 in academic scholarships and grants.

Loved ones said Torrace was looking forward to starting college in the fall.

Investigators released surveillance video of a person of interest, but no arrests have been made in the case.
