 The STOP sign on the corner, by the house next door to me, 
has become a memorial to the man murdered there last week.
The candles are burning still, and fresh flowers appeared today.

Seems an odd tribute, is there any reason you know of for the stop sign to be significant?

I think it's just the only open space there was to tie balloons.

I also see city STOP signs used as memorial markers for people who've been killed by cars. There are a couple "ghost bikes"--bikes painted white and chained to poles-- for bike riders killed by car drivers.
