A vigil for an unsolved murder

The vigil was held to call attention to Anthony Hamlin's homicide case. Hamlin, 40, was found in a field off Shewville Road in Ledyard on Jan. 28, 2006. No arrests have been made, and the state has a $25,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for Hamlin's death.
