Community mourns slain Department of Public Safety worker

BARRE, Vt. (AP) — A Vermont community on Wednesday mourned the loss of a state Department of Public Safety employee killed by her former boyfriend. More than 100 people turned out for the evening vigil in Barre to pay tribute to 29-year-old Courtney Gaboriault (Gah-BORE_eeo), who was remembered as kind and caring and someone who loved her dog, her family and fashion. The vigil was organized by friends of Gaboriault, who worked for the Public Safety Department’s Vermont Marijuana Registry. The department includes the Vermont State Police, the Vermont Crime Information Center and Vermont Emergency Management. "Courtney really deserves this and so much more than what she was given," said Kate Root, who organized the vigil. "I wanted to organize this event tonight in her honor because I feel like I didn’t do enough for her before she was taken from us. She was the kindest person. She wasn’t just nice, she was kind. She was always putting herself out there for people."
