EAST ARLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - Police say they’re investigating a possible connection between recent break-ins and one at the home of a woman who was found stabbed to death in a Vermont community concerned about its safety.

The Bennington Banner reports (https://bit.ly/2jGQof8) close to 200 people attended a meeting in East Arlington with law enforcement Thursday night, two weeks after police said they were investigating the death of 81-year-old Helen Jones as a homicide. No arrests have been made.

Topics ranged from what residents can do to keep neighbors safe, to questions about whether children in school are safe. Police said they need to be alert and notify them if they see any unusual activity.

Police didn’t say whether a hazardous materials team at a home last week had any connection to the homicide investigation.
