CANARSIE -

Community members gathered Thursday night for a vigil remembering the woman whose body was found dismembered this week inside Canarsie Park.

Dozens, including friends, family and elected officials, turned out for the vigil in honor of 26-year-old Brandy Odom.

Candles were lit, prayers were sung and balloons were released in the park where Odom's body was found.

Authorities are yet to name a suspect in connection with the slaying.

Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams has pledged $1,000 of his money for information that helps solve the case. That's on top of the NYPD's reward, which has since jumped to $10,000.
