Vigil sparks stories of loss February 04, 2014

Killed in front of their children. Killed while pregnant. Women killed with axes, screwdrivers, guns and hammers. Shot and stabbed multiple times. Stuffed in pillowcases. Killed by those who were supposed to love them.

The painful emotions linked to a vigil held Feb. 3 Coalition Against Violence, to remember women and girls either murdered or missing in Newfoundland and Labrador, inspired a series of stories in The Telegram, leading up to and immediately following the vigil.
