Mayor Weinberger Statement Regarding Homicide of Yogeswari Khadka

 

Burlington, VT – Mayor Miro Weinberger released the following statement today regarding the homicide at 72 Hyde Street:

 

“After yesterday’s tragic events, my thoughts are with the Yogeswari Khadka’s friends and family. My sympathy lies especially with her young daughter, and her mother, Thulsa Rimal, who continues to receive treatment at the UVM Medical Center. No family should have to endure the pain they are going through. I am grateful for the bravery of her neighbors, who helped to contain a terrible situation, and the remarkable professionalism, courage and decisiveness of the Burlington Police Department officers who responded to this scene.”
