Brattleboro Interim Town Manager Press Release on Recent Events

To: All
From: Patrick Moreland, Interim Town Manager
Re: Recent Events
Date: 7/21/22


By now many of you have seen the news. The body of a young woman was found dead in a vehicle on Elliot Street. A search for a suspect ended later that same day with a man shot dead. Our community has been witness to a slowly unfolding tragedy. While we are all still stunned by what has happened, the Town of Brattleboro wants to acknowledge this heartbreaking moment on behalf of this community

As is standard protocol for these events, all of the officers involved have been placed on administrative leave. Evidence, including body camera video, will be carefully reviewed as part of a thorough investigation being performed by the Vermont State Police. No further comments about the investigation are appropriate at this time. We place our trust in this independent process.

In the weeks and months that follow, details of this time will come into sharper focus. As we wait together, let us take a moment and remember the families of those that have been lost. Our hearts go out to them.
