Exhumation - Voice for Brenda

$2,000 of $7,000 goal

Raised by 23 people in 16 months

Imagine deciding to pay your grandmother a visit two days before Mother’s Day, only to leave shortly after midnight and never be seen alive again. Most people would never be able to fathom the idea of leaving their grandmother’s home after an innocent night of card games, disappearing into thin air, and then turning up brutally murdered. My aunt, Brenda Lacombe, however, and the people that held her closest to their hearts were faced with this very nightmare. Brenda, who was a mere 19 years old at the time of her death, left her grandmother’s home in Lowell, MA around 12:45am on May 16, 1982. A few weeks later on June 4th, her naked and beaten body was discovered in a wooded area off Interstate 495 just behind a stone wall on a rural country road located off route 111 in Harvard, MA. After all these years Brenda’s case remains unsolved.

We know in order to achieve Justice for Brenda we need to look at all of the information and its totality. We feel that having a new autopsy will bring forward new evidence in her case. I am raising funds for an exhumation of Brenda’s remains, as I believe she holds the key to solving her own murder. 

Taking inspiration from my family’s years-long search for answers, I began threading together the pieces of Brenda’s case, continuing to search for the answers that I believe are so long overdue and deserved.

Thank you all for your love and support!

Dear Friends,
I want to take the time to sincerely thank you all for your donations and support on the Voice for Brenda campaign! As you know, we started this campaign to raise funds to exhume Brenda in order to get a new autopsy performed for DNA evidence. As this was not available to us in 1982. Your contributions have brought us $1000 dollars closer to our goal!!! We are so completely moved by all the love, prayers, amazing wisdom and kind words, and support.
Many Thanks <3
