Press Statement: Nancy Tramontin Regarding the Attack on 2/24/2014

Nancy Tramontin met Claire Ogilvie in the fall of 2010, when the Toscano family participated in a Semester at Sea voyage. Semester at Sea is a shipboard program for global study, operated by a nonprofit sponsored by the University of Virginia. Ms. Ogilvie was not an employee, but was a “lifelong learner” on the program. She befriended Nancy and David’s son, tutoring him during the voyage. The Toscanos and Ms. Ogilvie became friends over the course of the voyage, and after they returned Claire moved to Charlottesville early in 2011. Nancy helped Ms. Ogilvie settle in, including her in family holidays, and community events and generally trying to welcome her to the community. In 2012, Nancy became concerned that Ms. Ogilvie had developed an unsettling interest in the Toscano family. The family reduced their contact, beginning in the early summer, and saw her for the last time in fall 2012. Before the attack, Nancy and the Toscanos had not seen Ms. Ogilvie in over a year. Nancy and the Toscano family are still reeling from this incident, and appreciate all the love and support that has been sent their way. Throughout this their number one priority has been their son. They ask for continued privacy during the ongoing investigation as they try to recover from the attack. This incident highlights the complexity and challenge of mental health issues, which affect our whole community and require a community response. (Pictured, Claire Kennedy Ogilvie)
