SALISBURY, Vt. (NEWS10) – On May 30, around 1:13 a.m., Troopers with the Vermont State Police responded to the Moosalamoo Campground in Salisbury for a report that Leon Forrest, 56, of Leicester, Vermont, was following and threatening people. Police say Forrest threatened to kill Leslie Karzmarczyk, 56, and Robert Karzmarczyk, 55, of Port Henry, as well as two children.
