MT. JEWETT – Despite a frigid, windy night, there was a warm glow in the air as the family of murder victim Alyssa Forsyth gathered at her grave to mark her 19th birthday.
The 45-minute vigil included the lighting of 19 large candles at the young woman's grave at Bridgeview Cemetery off Kushequa Avenue in Mt. Jewett.
More than 25 family members and friends, wearing heavy winter coats and hats and gloves, stood at the grave to sing "Happy Birthday" and other songs.
