A Take Back the Site Vigil will be held this evening for a man killed in his own apartment.
51-year-old Jeffrey Miller was shot and killed at his apartment on Chestnut Street last month. It was the first homicide in Erie of 2019. Nicholas Raines was the first charged with the crime, and on January 22nd, court documents confirmed that 38-year-old Louis Rauch was charged as well. Investigators say Rauch arrived with Nicholas Raines in a charcoal grey Hyundai Elantra and an unknown driver, who is also wanted for questioning in the incident.
The Sisters of St. Joseph are asking the Erie community to gather and pray for the victim, his family, friends, and neighbors.
Tonight’s vigil will be held at 5:15pm at 429 Chestnut Street.
