“The very first day that evening, there was probably a hundred school kids that come by,” McGinnis said.And now that number keeps on growing.“Total over the last few days there's been well over 300 kids,” McGinnis said.Those who visited have left shoes, t-shirts, photos, and memories of Jacob and Cameron.“Everybody has got their own little message and I think the kids, just from the things I’ve seen, were really good kids,” McGinnis said.They were also teens who made an impression. Even acquaintances from years ago stopped by the memorial to pay their respects to Jacob and Cameron.The memorial continues to grow as the town of Austin leans on each other for support.“I think for a small town, they come together better than most,” McGinnis said.Investigators still trying to determine the cause of this crash. A bake sale fundraiser is being organized to help pay for the teens funeral expenses.
