Nashua community holds vigil for Jacob Goulet

NASHUA - The community came together Wednesday night to hold a candlelight vigil for Jacob Goulet.

Dozens of people gathered downtown to mourn the loss of Jacob Goulet. The 16-year-old who lost his life over the weekend.

Friends and people who knew Goulet gathered together as they played music and sang songs. That's what friends say Jacob loved to do. He played guitar in a punk-rock band and tried to make everyone he met happy, according to his friends.

“He just loved everybody, unconditionally he just loved them” said Kayla Jean, a friend of Goulet

A memorial has been created at the drain where police say Jacob fell in. He didn't come home from a friends house late Friday night and his body was found in the Merrimack river in Tynsboro Massachusetts Sunday. Flowers, candles, and messages to Goulet decorate the drain. Parents who knew him say they want answers, still trying to understand how something like this could have happened.

“Children can’t be scared to walk home and lookin' down and be afraid to get sucked into a sewer drain, it’s not acceptable” said Jackie Healy who's son went to school with Goulet.

Police have yet to release the cause of death.
