Memorial to domestic violence victim desecrated

BATAVIA, N.Y. (WIVB) – Someone has desecrated a memorial for a Batavia woman who was tragically killed.

Nicole Sheehan was shot and killed by her boyfriend last month while on a trip along Route 5 in Barcelona to celebrate the 29-year-old woman’s birthday. Her boyfriend then took his own life.

A couple weeks ago, friends gathered at the YWCA in Batavia to honor Sheehan and raise awareness about domestic violence. They lit a path in her remembrance.

But now someone has destroyed those lights and Batavia Police are searching for the culprit.

If you have any information, call 585-345-6300.
