“Oh my god is all I could say,” said Cathy Muncey. “We just started balling,” added Charlotte Worcester.

The North Ridgeville women came to know and care about Janet after organizing a candlelight vigil for Rachele after her death.

They told Suzanne Stratford that crimes like this don’t happen in their community and they wanted to show the Tyburski family that they care.

“We struck up a wonderful friendship,” said Charlotte. “I’m incapable of believing this. I’m a mother too; there has to be some crazy explanation.”
