Remembering Renee Pagel three years after her murder

GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM) - It's been three years since Renee Pagel was found stabbed to death inside her Courtland Township home.

For those three years, friends and family had no closure in the murder, but what they do have is a sense of community.

"Just get together to support one another and laugh and obviously cry, and we have other survivors of murder," said Chris Crandle, who hosted a meeting with family and friends Wednesday.

Leading up to the murder, 41 year old Pagel was in a heated divorce with her husband, Michael Pagel. The murder is an active investigation and Michael Pagel is the prime person of interest.
