Vigils to honor slain Pullman woman tonight

Two separate vigils will be held tonight to remember former Pullman high school student Lauren McCluskey, murdered by an ex-boyfriend on the University of Utah campus Monday night.

The killer, 37-year-old Melvin Rowland, then shot himself to death.

McCluskey will be remembered tonight at a 6pm vigil at her former high school on the track field where she was a star athlete.

A second vigil will reportedly follow, according to Pullman high school officials, at 7pm at WSU, where both McCluskey’s parents are professors.
