A Sad Anniversary

A year ago today, the sister of one of my wife's friends was found murdered. She was found in the trunk of her car in the parking lot of the public school at which she taught in Nova Scotia. The police have yet to find the murderer and have not laid a single charge. Her name is Paula Gallant and the police are still looking for any tips that could lead to an arrest - there is up to $50,000 available for any such information.

In the year that has followed, her sisters have struggled to cope with this tragedy and maintain a relationship with their niece, who is almost 2 years old now. They have helped open an art room called "Paula's Place" at the school and have held auctions to raise funds and awareness of the investigation. But to this point nothing has led back to anything

Some more information can be found here, here, and here.
