Candlelight Vigil for Domestic Violence

An annual candlelight vigil for women who lost their lives to domestic violence honored an Edmonson County woman who was murdered in August.

The Barren River Area Safe Space held a vigil in downtown Bowling Green to honor those who died, celebrate the strength of survivors, and connect workers who fight to end domestic violence.

Steve Coffey lost his niece Linda Pedigo in August, from what started as a domestic dispute.

While attending the vigil he said, "I still haven't got over it yet, I'm still trying to deal day by day, without the Lord I wouldn't be able to deal with it like I do."

Senator Brett Guthrie was the keynote speaker at the event.

The Bowling Green Fire Department honor guard also made an appearance.
