WILBRAHAM, Mass. (WWLP) - As the community gathers tonight to pay their respects to Amy Lord's family, Boston police are expecting to update us on the investigation Monday night.
The Wilbraham community says they're hoping to hear news of an arrest.
"What's to say about it? You count your blessings and there's nothing to say," said Wilbraham's Michey George.
The community is at a loss for words nearly a week after 24-year-old Amy Lord of Wilbraham was kidnapped and stabbed to death in Boston.
As the community and family prepares to pay their respects this week, Boston police continue to look for her killer.
"It's just such a horrible tragedy, it's hard to grasp especially those of us with children of similar age. It's hard to grasp. Our hears are just breaking for that family," said Wilbraham's Betsy Davison.
For those community members who either can't attend services or didn't know the Lord family personally, they've found other ways to show they're thinking of them.
White ribbons are tied to street signs and mailboxes to honor the 2007 Minnechaug Regional High School graduate as emotions in Wilbraham run high.
"You just feel terrible. I recently lost my son so I know how they felt," said Wilbraham's Sally Wilson.
According to police, Amy Lord was kidnapped last week, forced to drive to several ATM's before she was stabbed to death.
Police say they'll find her killer, the community says they need them to.
"To have some justice and some peace knowing that people are behind you in trying to catch these horrific horrific individuals. I can't imagine," Davison added.
