Over the past three months, a bizarre story has unfolded involving a murder at a Bethesda, Maryland, Lululemon Athletica store. At first, a coworker of the slain victim, Jayna Murray, reported that masked gunmen came into the store for a botched robbery. But slowly, her story began to unravel. Eventually, the same coworker, Brittany Norwood, was charged with the murder.
Although the loss will never end for the victim's friends and family, a chapter has come to a close in this tragedy. In honor of the victim, hundreds of people gathered on Saturday for an outdoor yoga class to remember her.
"She was such a positive person; she would not want us here being sad. There is no question about not mourning, but
just living on with good, forward-moving energy," yoga instructor Adam Pearlstein, who led the Saturday class, told Gazette.Net.
The clothing company, who closed the store after the murder, was understandably eager to put the incident behind them. On their website, they announced the store's reopening:
It is with warm and grateful hearts that we are announcing the
re-opening of our newly renovated Bethesda store on Friday, June 24. The
re-opening will embrace the theme of "love" in honour of Jayna Murray.
More than ever, we remain committed to the people of Bethesda and look
forward to continuing to share with this community the same love,
passion and grace with which Jayna lived her life.
