Road to honor Megan Ripley


PARIS – The uncle of an 18-year-old girl who was accidentally killed by a hunter has asked the town for permission to name a road Megan’s Way.

Megan Ripley was shot Dec. 7 behind her home on Christian Ridge Road. The hunter, Timothy Bean, 51, of Paris, has been charged with manslaughter.

Robert Ripley, who owns the eight-lot Farm View Vista subdivision off Town Farm Road, requested that the road name be changed as a memorial to his niece.

Selectmen unanimously approved the new road name.
