Tree to be planted for Mailhot victims

November 21, 2012

WOONSOCKET — Stacie Goulet, Audrey Harris, and Christine Dumont will get the River Island Park memorial their families had been promised but never saw completed.
The City Council on Monday voted unanimously to allow the families to plant a tree near a plaque that had been installed in at the park when the families saw Jeffery Mailhot convicted in March of 2006 of the serial killings of Harris, 33, and Dumont, 42, and Goulet, 25.
The city man admitted in a plea of guilt to the charges that he had murdered the women in his Cato Street apartment between February 2003 and just prior to his arrest in July 2004.
The victim’s bodies were dismembered and disposed of in commercial dumpsters. The partial remains of Goulet were later recovered from the state’s Central Landfill in Johnston.
The particulars of the case were not recounted Monday evening as the City Council took up the request of Stephen Kreig, the father of Goulet’s two children as its final item of business for the evening.
Kreig and other members of the victim’s families had voiced disappointment back in October that the full tribute planned for Goulet, Harris and Dumont was never carried out and won a promise from Mayor Leo T. Fontaine that his administration would follow through on completing it.
“I wish to thank all of you for taking the time to listen to the request of my family and the other families,” Kreig said.
Kreig said he has been contacted by the tree company concerning the planting and the last step to be completed was the Council’s approval. He offered a special thanks to City Clerk Andrea Bicki for her work in coordinating the city’s role in preparing the site.
“Everyone has been very helpful,” Kreig added.
Before the council voted unanimously to approve the planting of a tree in the victim’s memory, City Councilman Roger Jalette, had just one comment for Kreig. “The only thing I would say is that I’m sorry it took this long,” Jalette said.
