Vigil Held in Wilbraham for Amy Lord

WILBRAHAM, Mass. (WGGB) – Family, friends, and the community have gathered together tonight to honor and remember Amy Lord, the Wilbraham woman whose body was found in a Boston park Tuesday afternoon.

Vigil goers have gathered together at Gazebo Park located on Main Street in Wilbraham to remember her.

“She was an angel, she was an angel,” said Bill Bickley, Wilbraham.

Wednesday night’s vigil was a chance for people to comfort one another, share a memory and join together in prayer.

“It’s hard to describe feelings right now, I can’t really put into words, I am both in shock and awe,” said Tim Fortin, friend.

Tim Fortin grew up with Amy Lord. He like so many others remember Amy as a well loved person.

“Amy was just the sweetest, kindest person who would have ever met, you know the most beautiful girl in school the most popular school, she never let it go to her head, very kind, very sweet,” said Fortin.

24-year-old, Amy Lord was the victim of a violent attack police say. She was abducted in the early morning hours on Tuesday, and then driven to five nearby banks with a suspect according to Suffolk County District Attorney, Daniel Conley.

When Amy didn’t show up for an appointment, the authorities were contacted and they began to investigate her disappearance.

Later that same day around 4:30 p.m. her body was discovered by someone walking in the Stony Brook Reservation which is in the city’s Hyde Park neighborhood.

At this time no arrests have been made, but police continue to actively investigate the situation.
