One interior community is approaching Halloween with an entirely different perspective than others in B.C.

Last year a local teen was killed in a violent attack in Armstrong, B.C.

Eighteen-year-old Taylor Van Diest was wearing a zombie costume and walking along rail road tracks that cuts through Armstrong when she was attacked. People in the community lived in fear as the police investigation dragged on.

Finally, 6 months later, 26-year-old Matthew Forester from Cherryville was arrested in connection with the killing.

Now Halloween is here again.

CBC reporter Brady Strachan took a trip to Armstrong to gauge the feeling of people in the community.
