Funeral held for woman killed in Manchester


MANCHESTER - A funeral service was held Friday for Denise Robert, the woman shot and killed in Manchester on Sunday.

Friends, family and colleagues attended the service, five days after Robert was shot, and her killer remains on the loose.

Her former boss at The Union Leader of New Hampshire remembered her as a hard-working, kind woman.

"Police don't seem to have a clue, because she didn't have an enemy in the world as the priest said at her funeral," said publisher Joe McQuaid.

More than 100 people attended a vigil Thursday evening.

"Police are working around the clock to find the person who did this to her and she deserves that," said Shannon Sullivan.

Robert leaves behind her mother and eleven siblings, as well as an extended family. Robert was 62 years old.

A $20,000 reward is being offered for tips that lead to an arrest.

Information can be submitted to the Manchester Crimeline 624-4040.
