Community Holds Memorial Ceremony For Kelly Boyce Hurlbert

Sunday, one northern Michigan community is honored the memory of a lost loved one, one year after tragedy took her from it.

Family and friends of Kelly Boyce Hurlbert gathered together in Traverse City’s F&A Park to remember her one year after she was killed in a hit-and-run accident.

Hundreds of people from the community came together against Mother Nature, braving rainy weather to pay their respects to Kelly and her family.

Local police also attended the vigil, as well as WTCM’s Jack O’Malley, who opened the ceremony.

Now, folks are just hoping an end can come to the ongoing investigation.

“I know I speak for the rest of my family when I say, you know, we just want to make sure whether it’s a community member, whether it’s an out-of-towner, we just want to try to prevent this from ever happening again,” said Scott Boyce, Kelly’s younger brother.

Police are still searching for the person who hit Kelly last year.

While they have received hundreds of tips, the community is reaching outward in the search for answers.
