NORTH RIDGEVILLE, OH (WOIO) - North Ridgeville residents held a vigil tonight to remember a 26-year-old woman that was found dead this month.
The small crowd gathered at South Central Park in North Ridgeville and sang songs and reflected on the life of Rachele Tyburski.
Police say a man found Tyburski's body on Sunday, March 15 on Victory Lane.
North Ridgeville police are still investigating, but Sunday night this grieving community wants her family to know that they will remember her life.
Charlotte Worcester, who organized the event with her friends, said no one knew her, but the community wanted to do something to honor her.
"We just thought this was the most memorable thing we could do for her family," said Worcester. "We didn't care how much it cost or how many candles we had to buy."
Catherine Boyd-Muncy grew up in North Ridgeville and helped plan the gathering.
"We would hope someone would show us that compassion," said Boyd-Muncy.
Local pastors lead prayers for the family who weren't able to attend but did reach out to share their gratitude.
"I talked to her mother and She's beyond heartbroken," said Worcester.
