HILLSBORO — Dozens of people attended a vigil Wednesday evening for a Forest Grove woman who was found stabbed to death at an apartment complex where she had just started a job.

The vigil for 29-year-old Nicole Laube was held at the Calvary Chapel Worship Center in Hillsboro, where her father is pastor.

The Washington County sheriff’s office told KOIN Laube had worked a short time at the Commons at Timber Creek Apartments in a suburb west of Portland. The body was found on the ground Tuesday afternoon. Investigators are looking for her killer.

An associate pastor at the Hillsboro church, Matthew Dodd, told The Oregonian Laube and her husband had two children and two stepchildren.

Dodd said the Laubes volunteered in the church nursery and preschool.
