Despite our community exemplifying small town America, it is not free of the ills of society. The worst behaviors of society can and do appear in Gasport...even on the holidays.

It happened overnight, when a murder (a VERY rare occurrence in our community) occurred in the apartments at the site of the former Hartland Motel on Route 104 between Hartland and Quaker Roads. 38 year-old Randy Whitney was allegedly stabbed to death by his girlfriend, 31 year-old Gwendolyn Garcia.

She was arraigned in Hartland Town Court around 8:00 AM this morning (no bail was placed) after being arrested on one count of second degree murder and criminal possession of a weapon.

More to follow as details become available.
