Sanders Statement on Slain Vermont Social Worker

U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) issued the following statement today after a Vermont Department for Children and Families worker was killed on Friday in Barre, Vermont, and three relatives of the suspect were found slain Saturday in Berlin, Vermont:

“Today is tragic day for Vermont. In the past 24 hours, a public servant was murdered and three other Vermonters were killed in circumstances that are not yet clear. My thoughts and prayers are with the victims’ families and friends. As is always the case, I know Vermonters will rally together in the aftermath of this horrible tragedy because that is what we do in a crisis. I have contacted Gov. Shumlin and I am confident there will be a full investigation into what happened and why.”
