    The community in Bedford, New Hampshire, came together for a vigil Monday night after a mother and her two daughters were found dead in their home in March.

    The candlelight vigil was held Monday night at the Bedford Presbyterian Church parking lot at 7:30 p.m.

    Nina Obukhov, 34, and her two daughters, Katherine Obukhov, 8, and Elizabeth Obukhov, 6, were found dead in their home at 17 McAfee Farm Road on Saturday, according to a release issued by the New Hampshire Attorney General's Office, state and Bedford police.

    Law enforcement officials said the information gathered so far shows that the deaths appear to be the result of a murder-suicide where Nina Obukhov shot and killed her two daughters and turned the gun on herself.

    The victims' family did not attend as they are still overwhelmed with grief, but they sent a letter that was read out loud. It thanked the community for coming together in such a powerful way.

    Monday afternoon, the attorney general's office told necn that the investigation in the March 28 shooting is still under investigation.
