HARTFORD - Hundreds gathered Wednesday night to mourn the loss of a murdered teenager from Hartford.
Nineteen-year-old Jessie Blodgett was strangled last month by a friend. Wednesday, the entire community paid tribute to Jessie's life at West Side Park.
Blodgett was an aspiring actress, and at the time of her death, was involved in a local theater production. Her accused killer was a friend of hers, and was someone she had once dated in high school.
Blodgett's dad Buck thanked the community for their support during this tragic time.
