A village goes purple to remember one of its own.

On Friday in New Hartford, near Utica, friends, family and neighbors released purple balloons and tied purple ribbons in memory of Alex Kogut.

Kogut was killed in her dorm room at The College at Brockport by her boyfriend Clayton Whittemore.

Whittemore was found guilty of second degree murder on Friday.
