PLEASANTVILLE — Village volunteer firefighters will hold their annual candlelight vigil on Monday to mark the 16th anniversary of the brutal murder of Tom Dorr, a Pleasantville firefighter who was beaten and stabbed to death during a Jan. 7, 1996 blizzard in Graham Hills Park.
The murder has never been solved, although Westchester County police say his wife and stepson remain prime suspects.
Each year firefighters, Dorr’s co-workers from the White Plains Department of Public Works and friends gather in the park to remember him. The public gathering is scheduled for 7 p.m. at the park, located directly across from Pace University’s Pleasantville campus on Route 117.
