Family, friends gather to honor man one year after his murder

BALTIMORE (WMAR) -

”I miss Sebastian a lot, an awful lot…I would tell him that I love him and that I wish he was here.”

“I wish my last text wasn’t get some sleep, I wish I had said I love you and miss you.”

Those are the words of Lisa Richard and David Dvorak wish they could tell their slain son.

Sebastian Dvorak, a well-liked bartender was shot and killed during an attempted robbery in Canton a year ago today.

Family and friends including Cormack White leave a mass for him before a vigil was held in his honor. “When that bullet passed like a train through Sebastian’s heart it failed to steal his force of life from us, whose lives he touched.”

Police released surveillance video of two persons of interest but no arrests have been made.

Richard says, “For us, we’ll never get justice but we want justice for Sebastian and this city.”

Tonight, was just about healing and remembering.

Richard wanted to hold the vigil for her son for multiple reasons. “We wanted to do this one-year vigil here as both a remembrance of our son but also a thank you to this community for how they’ve been for us.”

David Dvorak added, “I wish I could get back some of the time we didn’t spend together because I didn’t know we’d lose these times.”

Dvorak’s alma matter, The Calvert School is also working to raise money to send 80 students to a special leadership day in his honor.
