WALLKILL, N. Y. -- Those who gathered Wednesday to honor Wallkill's Justin Speights said they were touched by the tragic circumstances of his death trying to break up a fight at a New Year's Eve party in Pine Bush, Time Warner Hudson Valley reports.
Dozens got together to comfort each other during a candlelight vigil held during freezing temperatures for the 20-year-old volunteer Silver Lake firefighter and former Pine Bush High School football player, according to Time Warner Hudson Valley.
The Silver Lake Fire Department is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to an arrest, Time Warner Hudson Valley says. A GoFundMe page has raised more than $11,000 for his family.
