Teen remembered 7 years after dirt bike death

Friends and family gathered Friday to honor the memory of Nick Parisot, the teen who was killed in June 2008 while riding his dirt bike through the woods.

Officials say someone had tied a rope between two trees, causing the fatal accident. Police closed Parisot's case earlier this year after a former neighbor, Tully Knight, confessed to being responsible for the 13-year-old's death.

Parisot's father says that while the case has been solved, the family still hasn't found emotional closure.

There will be no official memorial service for Parisot, but friends and family say that they hold his memory close to their hearts.
