ESSEX — A public bench and a flagpole have been installed in memory of a Vermont couple who authorities say were abducted from their Essex home and killed last year.
The bench is outside the Brownell Library in Essex with a plaque “in loving memory” of Bill and Lorraine Currier. The 20-foot flagpole with a light is near the entrance to the landfill in Coventry. Authorities believe the bodies of the Curriers ended up there, though the remains have not been found.
A sister of Lorraine Currier said the family continues to seek closure in the case. No criminal charges have been filed.
The Curriers were last seen leaving for work June 8, 2011.MORE IN Vermont News(Editor’s note: This is the final part of an Associated Press series of profiles on candidates... Full Story
