More than 150 tips have come in since Vermont State Police released a sketch of a person of interest in the killing of a retired college dean who was shot dead a week ago on a recreation trail in the small college town. The composite sketch was made public Wednesday afternoon and is based on witnesses’ accounts of a man they saw on the trail before they came across the body of Honoree Fleming, 77, police said. Fleming died of a gunshot wound to the head while walking along the trail on the afternoon of Oct. 5, about 1 mile south of the Vermont State University Castleton Campus. Witnesses reported that the man was acting odd, and more than one person observed him. Police did not know if the shooting was random or targeted and advised the public to remain vigilant.
