Candlelight Vigil Held to Remember the Family Who Died in Last Week's Murder-Suicide

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, WA- Thursday night a candlelight vigil was held for the three lives lost in the murder suicide last Friday. We learned earlier this week that Doug Brown shot and killed his wife Elena and his daughter Carmena. 

The event Thursday night brought family, friends and community members together as they remembered the Brown family. The event was held at the Arc of Tri-Cities and was hosted by Modern Living Services, both organizations, Elena was very involved with. 

Those who showed up to the vigil were encouraged to light a candle but also write a message on an ornament and hang it on a tree that was decorated in Carmena's honor with pictures and other ornaments.
