LAUREL - A candlelight vigil has been planned for a Laurel woman who was killed in a hit-and-run.

Friends and family of Kassi McColley will gather Saturday at 5 p.m. to "help in bringing awareness to her tragic death and help her family get the answers and healing they deserve," according to a Facebook events page.

The vigil will be held at the field across from the storage at 2700 E. Main St. in Laurel.

McColley's body was found Feb. 4 on the side of Old Highway 10 East near the intersection with Sietz Ronan Road near Laurel. The 28-year-old Laurel woman had been reported missing several days earlier.

According to her family, McColley was fleeing a domestic violence situation when she was struck by a vehicle. Investigators with the Yellowstone County Sheriff's Office believe she was struck on the evening of Jan. 31. A vehicle believed to be involved in the woman's death has been located, but authorities have not announced any arrests in the case.
