OLD TOWN, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- One of the remarkable things about this case was the impact it had on the community, and the incredible outpouring of support, on social media, at prayer vigils, and through the hundreds of people who volunteered to search this weekend. On Tuesday residents of the community spoke to NEWS CENTER.
"It's really sad to think about such a young girl who had her whole life ahead of her, it's really just a shame to hear about it," said Shane Nedeua.
When asked if this was something that happened often, Nedeua told NEWS CENTER, "no, not at all. I mean, small little town small community just not really heard of. Things are changing around here. One person, just a little nuts and just getting out of hand."
Another woman told NEWS CENTER that her neighborhood is an area mostly of elderly residents. She said it's times like this that she doesn't mind not being very tech savvy and doesn't know how to operate social media sites such as Facebook. She added that she hopes that kids can learn from this situation to be more careful.
