Burlington reacts to Rooney verdict with relief, sadness

Print More

Burlington Mayor Bob Kiss says he appreciates the good detective work that led to the conviction of Brian Rooney.

But the mayor says the abduction, rape and murder of Michelle Gardner Quinn is still a terribly sad story.

Others in Burlington say Thursday’s verdict against Rooney on a charge of aggravated murder caps a case that provided a stark reminder of the continuing problem of sexual violence.

Many in Burlington say the city and state are relatively safe, but people need to be aware that danger exists everywhere.
