“When I found out my friend had been killed, I just fell to the ground,” said Ruby Works, a neighbor.

Works said Peterson enjoys gardening, planting cucumbers and tomatoes, and showing off his two cats.

“He took pride in making his blueberry jelly.”

She said she has known Peterson since she was a little girl.

Works added that Peterson’s grandson lived with him and that his grandson was in hiding.

“He was the sweetest old man. He was the nicest guy,” said Audette.

Leroy Shier has lived in Weldon since 1976 and said it was pointless.

“It doesn’t make any sense at all, why would two young people stab and kill an older guy like that?”

“[Peterson] can’t fight back, he’s not a threat to anyone, never was,” Shier added.

“No one deserves this, no matter who you are.”
