Vigil scheduled to honor slain Duke graduate student

A slain Duke University graduate student was remembered as a man who not only excelled in his specialty of computational mechanics but also as someone who appreciated books and cooking.

More than 100 people attended a memorial service for 29-year-old
Abhijit Mahato on Monday. The service was held at the same complex
where Mahato was found dead Jan. 18 in his apartment a few blocks
from the Duke campus.

Among those who spoke were Mahato's faculty adviser at Duke and
his roommate.

Several Durham police officers, including the investigators in
Mahato's case, also held candles as they stood at the edge of the
vigil.
