Getzville (WBEN) -- The verdict in the manslaughter trial of Dr. James Corasanti case has prompted more visits to the accident scene on Heim Road.
People have used the development to again pay respects to the victim, Alexandria "Alix" Rice.
An Erie County Court jury on Wednesday found the defendant not guilty on all five felony charges he was facing. The panel only found Corasanti guilty on a misdemeanor DWI charge.
The verdict prompted plenty of negative reaction from the Western New York community.
The accident scene near 550 Heim Road includes cards, messages, and flowers along the guardrail.
Walter Pawlowski stopped by the scene while riding his bike. He lives near the accident scene and says he was shocked to hear the verdict.
"I could not believe that he was found innocent of every single felony charge. It makes no sense," Pawlowski says.
Those visiting the memorial site included friends of Alix Rice and friends of her family. They included Mark Callen, who lives on Heim Road. He says he knows the Rice family and was in the courtroom for the verdict.
"After they said 'not guilty' to the second manslaughter charge, I was just in total disbelief, like how could this possibly happen," Callen says.
Another woman, who only wanted to provide her first name, Debbie, doesn't think the jury delivered the correct verdict.
"I think you have to find someone at fault for leaving the scene of a crime, and I think you find someone at fault for tampering with evidence," she says.
The guardrail also includes messages including one that read, "Alix, you taught me how to long board. I miss you," and another that read, "We'll have cookies again someday. Keep smiling girl."
