Perham students gather during assembly Friday to honor 16-year-old murder victim
PERHAM, Minn. - One by one, Perham high school students filed out of Friday morning's assembly honoring 16-year-old Tabitha Belmonte, pausing only to wipe away tears or to comfort grieving classmates.
Belmonte was killed Monday night when she was shot by her boyfriend in a murder-suicide near Amor.
On their way out of the assembly, students dropped dollar bills in a box decorated with photos of Belmonte and her 7-month-old daughter left behind, Emma Cox.
