LETHBRIDGE: The families of three victims killed in a murder-suicide near Claresholm before Christmas will attend a local memorial planned in their honour.
The service, which will take the shape of a nine-inning baseball game, will pay tribute to late Lethbridge resident Tabitha Stepple, as well as former Lethbridge Bulls baseball players Tanner Craswell and Mitch MacLean. Lone survivor in the incident Shayna Conway will also have a tribute at the event, and is expected to attend.
Lethbridge Bulls general manager Kevin Kvame is on the planning committee for the event. He says the intent is to bring comfort to southern Alberta residents affected by the tragedy. "It definitely is a hope that the people who weren't able to go to Charlottetown and participate in the funeral services there, that this can act as that type of event here," he said.
The memorial will be open to the public and held at the Enmax Centre on Saturday, January 14 at 3 p.m.
