“It’s sad, disgraceful, disrespectful people who have no faith or no morals to do something like that,” expressed Rick Abreu to CBS Boston.
The Burlington’s Police Chief Kent assured the parishioners that the police will take the crime very serious saying; “We will undertake a thorough investigation and use all assets at our disposal to find those responsible and hold them accountable.”
