A Statement from Archwood United Church of Christ
about a tragedy at our church on Nov. 15, 2018
 
Dear Friends and Members of Archwood United Church of Christ: We want to share news of a tragedy that occurred in the parking lot of our church on Thursday afternoon, Nov. 15, 2018. As the incident has been described to us, Lesley Dejesus, age 33, a volunteer with our tenant, the Julia de Burgos Cultural Arts Center, became involved in a struggle with someone who was trying to steal her van. In the process, the vehicle ran over her. She died at the scene. Police later found the van a short distance away. Police detained someone for a time but released him as unconnected with the crime. At this writing, we do not know whether any other suspects are being pursued or are in custody.
As far as we know, no member of our congregation was at the church at the time of the incident. Two of our Governing Body members met with a Julia de Burgos leader within three hours of the incident to express our condolences and offer support. Archwood will make a contribution to a funding campaign that Julia de Burgos is creating in connection with the tragedy.
We pray for the family of the deceased, for Julia de Burgos staff and participants, and for all involved in this heartbreaking crime. We will continue in prayer at 11 a.m. this Sunday and will share any updates that may be available then. In Christ’s love,
Judy Schumann, Moderator, Archwood United Church of Christ
