A memorial will be conducted in honor of two men who were killed in a brutal double murder that took place Sunday in Fort Worth.
Dalton’s Corner Bar and Grill posted on its Facebook page Tuesday that the victims, Daniel Haros and Phillip Garcia, were a part of the bar’s family. The post says the business wants to celebrate the men’s memories and help support the families.
The memorial will be at the restaurant at 9 p.m. on Thursday at 200 S. Main Street in Burleson.

“The loss of these two very young lives has hit the community and our Dalton’s Corner family very hard,” the restaurant said in their post.
Cary Joseph Heath, 35, was arrested Monday and accused of killing the two. An affidavit released Tuesday said that the three conversed cordially at a Halloween party Sunday before multiple gunshots were heard.
A witness saw a man standing over one of the victims and striking him with the butt of a rifle.
According to the affidavit, Heath then ran into the home where the party had been, handed the neighbor his 1-year-old baby and said, “This is the last time I will see the baby. I killed two people.”
One man was lying dead in a driveway down the street. The other victim lay dead in a different front yard. A medical examiner told police that they died of multiple gunshot wounds and blunt force trauma to the face and head, the affidavit said.
Police declined to comment on a motive. Heath remained in Mansfield jail Tuesday on a $1 million bond.
