Baby Aniston Walker’s Memorial Site Could Be In Harm’s Way

(Millington, TN) A memorial for baby Aniston Walker could be in harm’s way.

Community members placed stuffed animals, crosses, and flowers where the 7-week-old’s body was found face down in a ditch in Millington.

The memorial got so big on Singleton Parkway, it blocks the entrance of a produce stand Jones Orchard, which is set to open next month.

No one got permission from Jones Orchard to put the memorial site on their property.

Police and people across the Mid-South searched for the little girl for a month when she went missing. A motorcyclist found her ten miles form her North Memphis home in February.

Aniston’s mother, Andrea Walker, was charged with her murder days after the body was found.

Neighbors like Heather Berland say a prayer every time she drives by the site and would hate to see something happen to it.

“It just shows people are open and care about things like this that happen, even if it doesn’t affect us directly,” said Berland. “They could take down some of the items down there, but leaving something there would be a good thing to do.”

Tuesday, no one from Jones Orchard would go on camera, but one of the owners told WREG it can’t stay there.

She wants it moved down the road so she doesn’t have to throw it away.

The owners plan on talking to the city of Millington to get ideas.

Andrea Walker is due in court on April 24 for a preliminary hearing. WREG will be there to bring you the latest.

    This should not have happened to an infant. If the mother is guilty I hope she rots in hell. But this roadside memorials are really getting out of hand. Where a person dies or is found is not hallowed ground. It’s not a burial site. The money spent of these toys would be better if given to the places that could help children in need.

    Maybe put a small cross and say in memory of. That would be simple it should be done all accross Memphis .

    I agree with all the posts above…. I don’t understand the memorials and it certainly is NOT like a tomb or burial plot. You have to PAY for those. This is on private property and in the way. As time goes by, the items are going to get more and more tattered.

    Put a cross near there with her name and plant some perennial bushes and flowers. People can still see it and pray, but it won’t be blocking an entrance to a business.
