Bringing awareness to domestic violence

A domestic violence awareness vigil was held Thursday evening in Centennial Park in Glenwood Springs. October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month and the vigil, organized by the Advocate Safehouse Project, followed the slaying on Oct. 7 of Blanca Salas-Jurado south of Glenwood Springs. Her ex, Gustavo Olivo-Tellez, is charged with first-degree murder in the shooting death. Olivo-Tellez’s girlfriend, Michelle Castillo is charged as an accomplice in the homicide. The vigil Thursday was meant to be an opportunity to help the community, the survivors of domestic violence and their families heal. For more information about the Advocate Safehouse Project go to
