Aprina Paul Memorial Held Last Night at Death Site in Evansville, WI
Rock County Sheriff’s Sgt. Josh Lund told the Gazette Saturday night that several dozen of Aprina Paul’s friends and family held a candlelight vigil at the home near Evansville where her burned remains were found.
Lund on Saturday night told The Gazette that a group of people held candles and held a sort of memorial service for the 18-year-old Fitchburg woman at the house 12016 Highway 14 West, where resident Nathan Middleton admitted he’d burned her body in a fire pit after he claimed to find her dead the morning after having sex with her.
Organizers say the family needs some closure. Those who live near Middleton’s house are also looking for ways to heal.
“They’re shocked,” says neighbor Laura Hanson. “No one expects this in a smaller community, and when it happens, it hits really close home.”
