The Kent Black Action Commission will have a candlelight vigil to honor the memory of Linda Sweezer, the 64-year-old woman killed this week at her Kent home.
The vigil is from 5:30 to 7 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 28, at the Burlington Green Park gazebo, at the corner of Smith Street and Railroad Avenue North.
Sweezer, a board member of the Kent Black Action Commission, was strangled to death at her East Hill home. Her body was then dumped along a road near Lake Tapps in Pierce County.
The Pierce County Sheriff’s Department arrested Lance Rougeau, 25, for investigation of second-degree murder. He is scheduled to be arraigned on Monday at Pierce County Superior Court in Tacoma.
Detectives continue to track down details about the killing of Sweezer, and are looking for a second suspect.
