Today after the devastating April 25, 2018 shooting of Somerset County Sherrif's Deputy Cpl. Eugene Cole, John Williams was found guilty of murder.

Cpl. Cole's hometown of Norridgewock released a statement at the beginning of the trial to the press that was never made public. The town chose to share it today in light of the verdict.

Their statement shows the level of resillience this community has and I hope the events of today offers the friends, family, and town some closure after such a tragic event.
