SALISBURY — Vermont State Police late Friday released the names of the two troopers who were first to arrive on the scene at an incident early Thursday morning that ended in the death of 52-year-old Gerald “Dusty” Woodburn. State police said Woodburn took his own life following his involvement in a domestic dispute at his home off Lake Dunmore Road during the early morning of Nov. 17.
I was standing on the sidelines on a brisk October afternoon watching my three kids play soccer. Although I was getting progressively colder, and wishing I had chosen more comfortable footwear, the players were gradually shedding layers. My middle son, who had worn crocs for the occasion, lost a shoe more than once while kicking the ball.
