Patricia Bolton, who lives in the area, told Global News she has been “distraught” ever since learning of the incident.

“I’m broken. I feel that the majority of people around here (are) just broken as well,” she said. “I can’t put it in words, there’s no words to describe the feeling. It’s something you can’t really express. But it’s there and it will be with me for a long, long time.”
