INDIANAPOLIS-- A Indianapolis mother says she wants to make sure that her 5-year-old son will never be forgotten after Metro Police say he was found dead after he was pulled out of a pool earlier this week.
“My son wouldn’t hurt a fly, he loved, loved being in the water,” Charisse Alexander said.
Willie Alexander Junior’s mom, Charisse Alexander said he enjoyed watching cartoons, riding his bike and spending time with his family.
Charisse said Willie would have turned 6-years-old in July.

Red and blue balloons and stuffed animals were on display on Saturday as family and friends gathered for a balloon release. Family tells WRTV Willie loved Paw Patrol, Spider-Man and Mickey Mouse.
“If I could tell him anything, I would tell him, son I love you so much, so much,” Alexander said.

“I wish I could hug you again, and I promise I would hug you so tight that I would never let you go,” Alexander said.
