On Oct. 16, Desiree Curry, a UR Dining Services employee, was murdered in a fatal stabbing in her Remington Street home, where she lived with her 2-year-old daughter, Maz, and her grandmother, Bertha Douglas. She was 22. Curry worked in Wilson Commons on weekend nights and occasionally during the week. She started working for Dining Services through a temporary employment agency on Sept. 6 of this year.
Curry’s life and death have left an impact on her family, co-workers and community. Police have labeled the homicide as a case of domestic violence.
At around 11:30 p.m. on Thursday night of Oct. 16, Rochester police were called to Curry’s home. Police found Curry lying on the floor with numerous stab wounds to her upper body. They also found a gardening tool next her body, which her parents later confirmed to be a pair of hedge clippers.
