Sad Update

It breaks my heart to type this post...

“Police confirmed Thursday a body found on the outskirts of Bridgewater last weekend was that of 12-year-old Karissa Boudreau. Investigators said she was murdered.” - The Chronicle Herald

This is very poignant news for our small town. It has left many people shocked, scared, and saddened, to say the least. So many people in the community and beyond have been rallying together searching for this little girl. A temporary memorial has been set up by the location where her body was found. People have been bringing teddy bears, flowers, baloons and notes for the last few days.

Two people were arrested but have since been released. As of right now, they say it may take months before police are able to lay charges. Here is the link for anyone that is interested in following this story.


For anyone that would like to go light a virtual candle in her memory.
