Separately, on April 5, state police announced that six months after the killing of 77-year-old Honoree Fleming of Castleton their investigation into her death remains active and ongoing. Fleming, a former Middlebury resident and former professor at Middlebury College, was shot to death on the Rail Trail in Castleton in the late afternoon or early evening of Oct. 5, 2023.

Detectives assigned to the case continue their work pursuing and developing leads, state police said last Friday. Investigators are receiving tips from the public and following up on that information. Evidence analysis remains underway. The Victim Services Unit continues to provide assistance and support to the family.

Jeremy Hill, commander of the Vermont State Police Major Crime Unit, in a press release. “Our thoughts remain with Honoree’s family, friends, loved ones and community.”
