From Robert Woodhall, Vanderbilt employee and resident of Pierre’s neighborhood:
I live in the neighborhood where Professor Pierre Colas lived. The neighborhood is very saddened and outraged at the senseless killing of Pierre. The Greenwood Neighborhood Association is organizing a candle light vigil for Pierre to be held on Saturday August 30th at 6:00 PM. The vigil will be held in front of his house, 921 McFerrin Avenue, Nashville, TN 37206. We would like to extend an invitation to anyone at Vanderbilt that would like to share and speak about Pierre’s life to join us that evening. If you have any questions you can contact me at email@example.com.
