Gillis family: ‘Justice has prevailed’

Kaylin Gillis’ family released this statement after Kevin Monahan was convicted of second-degree murder, along with reckless endangerment and tampering in the April 2023 driveway shooting of Kaylin Gillis.

Thank you to everyone who has reached out to my family and me over the past 9 months after the untimely passing of our beloved daughter, Kaylin.  We will never have full closure from the events of that fateful day but do feel justice has prevailed with the GUILTY ON ALL CHARGES verdict that was announced earlier today.

Thank you to the DA’s office, Christian Morris, Tony Jordan and staff, Judge Michelini and NYS Court Officers, Washington County Courts, my brothers and sisters at the Washington County Sheriffs office, Cambridge/Greenwich PD, Granville PD, New York State Police, Salem EMS, Salem Fire, and all mutual aid, and media personnel for remaining respectful of our friends and family. Thank you to everyone who showed love and support! 

While we would trade anything to bring Kaylin back, this was the best possible outcome short of her still being here with us. KAYLIN GOT HER JUSTICE. Much love to all! 🙏❤️🥰”
