"The candlelight walk began on the corner of Bridge Street and continued down Pleasant Valley Road and Rosedale Avenue until the railroad tracks, where a trail has been constructed in honour of Taylor.
The 'Taylor Jade Van Diest Memorial Trail' was Taylor’s twin sister Kirstie’s idea, and 270 pumpkins lined the rocky path along the railroad tracks, where residents laid down roses as they passed."

I have been following this case since first hearing the awful news last Halloween... So fucking sad.

A beautiful, vivacious girl in the prime of her life was killed after setting out to meet up with friends for some good, old-fashioned Halloween fun. She had her costume on when she was attacked, which made the last photos she appeared in so eerily ironic it sent chills down my spine; Taylor posed for a few shots before leaving the house that evening, soaked in fake blood.

Matthew Foerster, her accused killer, is currently awaiting trial. May he rot in prison, and then burn in Hell.
