Community will unite at candlelight vigil for Larie Butler | Community Service
The medical examiner has still not positively identified the body found in an Irondequoit pool Thursday.
Police believe it's the Rochester teenager who went missing last Sunday. Saturday night her family is holding a vigil in her memory.
Police arrested Devante Lively in connection with the disappearance of 17-year-old Larie Butler. Lively is charged with second degree murder.
Butler's friends and family plan to get together to remember her.
There is footage of the pool where police discovered a body believed to be Larie Butler. Irondequoit Police Chief Richard Boyan told us he does not believe the body was sexually assaulted but the victim did have severe blunt force trauma to the upper body.
Police have combed the area for the last two days in search of the weapon used in the attack. The teenager went missing a week ago Saturday. As you can imagine it’s been an exhausting week for the entire community they will gather to mourn.
“We need to stand now and stand as a body of people in a community having a desire to help in every capacity there is here in the City of Rochester,” Britt M. Pledger Jesus the Christ church pastor told News10NBC.
We're going to head over to a candle light vigil for Larie Butler where family, friends and members of the community are expected to gather at the Dansforth Tower on the corner of Ames and West Avenue. We'll hear from supporters at the vigil tonight at 11.
Family members are confident the body found at the bottom of the pool Thursday afternoon is indeed Larie Butler. Pastor Pledger told us that he is assisting the family with the funeral arrangements. He says he will visit a funeral home with the family Monday to start preparations for a burial.
