White River Junction, Vt. -- A jury found Kyle Bolaski guilty of second degree murder in the shooting death of Vincent Tamburello Jr. The jury found him not guilty of aggravated assault following the shots. They deliberated for just a few hours before announcing their verdict Thursday night.
Bolaski will serve 20 years to life in prison.

To "the truth" you obviously are connected to Kyle personally. You seem bitter and angry. I can sit here and cuss you out, threaten you, etc. however as Vinnie's cousin and as a member of this "bad apple's" family I'm going to respond with dignity, pride, and self respect. As Vinnie Tamburello's cousin I'm relieved & grateful to say Kyle Bolaski has been found guilty of 2nd murder. This was not self defense...thank God the jury saw through the lies. The final shot that ultimately killed him was to the back as he turned to retreat. He had the opportunity to attack Kyle with the axe instead he decided to beat the truck. They have attempted to make my cousin look like a crazed mad man & thankfully they were unsuccessful. My cousin can finally rest peacefully and Kyle Bolaski can rot in jail for the next 20-life. My family has been destroyed by our loss and hopefully now we can move forward and actually start living again. To actually get to the point where Kyle was sitting at the defense table was a victory...the guilty verdict was a blessing. The mistake you and your friends made that day was thinking if you showed up in numbers my cousin was going to back down...obviously not! The mistake the state of Vermont made was very similar. Thinking if they came at my family with power in numbers they were going to back down. Well Vinnie learned that somewhere, huh? GET THIS STRAIGHT...WE WILL NEVER BACK DOWN. We will continue to battle, we will be at every parolle hearing, every appeal, etc. to make sure the your "friend" will remain in prison for as long as possible. The only person that black mailed anyone was Kyle Bolaski & Atty. Sands. Sick and twisted is when someone shows up ALONE somewhere and it takes an army with guns to take him on. Sick and twisted is really believing that after taking someone's life you think it's acceptable to complain that your life has been ruined for the last 2 1/2 yrs. due to legal proceedings. Sick and twisted is thinking when you shoot someone in the back, you coward, as he his retreating that it's called self defense. Sick and twisted is cracking open a beer as another human being is lying on the ground dying and not doing anything to help him. Sick and twisted is to hit a man while he lay on the ground helpless & dying.Sick and twisted is really thinking you can choose who deserves to live and die. My aunt and uncle have given up their entire lives to make sure justice has been served not because of guilt but out of love and for you to come on their dedication website and be so ignorant as to write the nonsense that you just did is not only out of line, but disgusting. My aunt and uncle are amazing parents and I don't think I need to even defend them when it comes to loving their children. It's obvious. Vinnie was never thrown away or abandoned and no one has said he was an angel in his life, but that does not make it acceptable for some piece of garbage to take his life. Trust me if Vinnie wanted any of you dead it wouldn't have been the truck that was damaged. As far as we're concerned Kyle is the one terrorizing your area and that's from Vermont residences not our opinion. He has been arrested how many times since Aug. '08? And for what? Oh drugs; who's the junkie? How did you really think he was going to get off? As far as I'm concerned justice has been served. Remember my cousin was the victim...there's a reason Kyle was at the defense table. It was the state of Vermont vs. Kyle Bolaski, not the Tamburellos vs. Kyle Bolaski. Remember a Vermont jury convicted him. You will soon know how it feels to be resentful and angry as we have been for the last 2 1/2 yrs.; however you can go visit Kyle in jail, speak to him on the phone, write him letters and possibly one day see him outside of prison (I pray to God you won't though). For us, no matter what the verdict read today Vinnie is never coming home. So you will never understand the true pain of loss. I'll end it by saying if Kyle thought the last 2 1/2 years were so terrible the next 20-life are really going to be a bitch.

@The Truth, this message is for you. Kyle is the one that terrorized Vermont and he belongs in jail, he is the one that brutalized Vinnie after he shot him in the back and beat him with a rifle in the face and then they kicked him, so shame on Vermont for denying justice for so long. It's about time one less punk will walk the streets there in Vermont. And I don't believe for one minute that the only crimes there are speedying tickets, that statement in itself is a bold face lie, but I'm not surprized the Vermont people have a huge problem with punks running the show there and getting away with all sorts of crimes and for a time murder, until they murdered Vinnie and they met thier water loo and though his parents would go slowly away and forget about thier son being murdered, but they stood proud and fought tooth and nail til they got a conviction, and they won't stop there, they will get every last one of them that helped in killing thier son, so if your one of them, then your free life is about to end. So face the facts you can't get away with murder with lies and have the police protect you.

Vinny and Ronnie and Family. I am so proud of you's for never giving up of theis case and I am so happy that you got what you wanted. It was a very hard road for you's the last 3 years, but you's never stopped fighting for what you's wanted and the way it was handled from day one. I am so happy for you's and hopefully now he can rot in jail and be sentenced to natural life and rot for what he did to Little Vinnie. Congradulation for never giving up even though at the beginning with Sands who sucked. I wonder what he is thinking now, that scumbag. Little Vinnie is watching over you's and saying thats my mom and dad who is my voice now and they never stopped at anything. Congradulations maybe changes can happen in Vermont because of you's.
Let me know when we are going over to the cematary to celebrate with releasing of the balloons and other things that you's want to do.
Love you all

I pray this jury opens thier eyes to justice and they convict him of this horrible murder. I've been thinking of you guys everyday and praying it's over soon. I'm sorry you have to sit through all of this and how painful it is, but know thier are many friends praying for you guys and we all want justice for Vinnie.

I've also been shocked by the way our court system can be so corrupt and twisted. Thinking of you and hoping for justice for Vinnie. It can happen. It does happen. My friend Susan Markowitz finally endured her last trial last year for her son's murder-- everyone involved was convicted, with sentences that ranged up to the death penalty. It was a huge relief for those of us around her to see that justice was served properly, even though it took so many years. I sure hope we'll say the same here at the end of this trial. And let's hope the next trial is Sand's... for his obvious corruption and fraud.

Vinny Ronnie and family I'm thinking of you all everyday. It won't be much longer when Bolaski will be sentenced for the murder of Little Vinnie and I hope it's life for what he did. He is such a low-life coward, sumbag and a MURDER. Justice will prevail. Thinking of you all everyday.

Hey Vinnie and Ronnie, I know justice moves slow, but it looks like it is finally coming to you and your family. I read up on the story, and I was ashamed of the Law Enforcement/ District Attorneys original lack of commitment to the community and your family and lil Vinnie. I hope the jury can see the evil that took place that afternoon and give lil Vinnie and all of his loved ones the justice they deserved years ago. As a dad I can not imagine the pain you had to fight thru just to get a fair shot at holding those who are responsible, accountable for the horrible action they committed. My thoughts are with all of you during this stressful time.

You're such devoted and patient parents to put up with some of the b.s. I see posted on this page. Reading through your side of things makes it clear that there IS only one side and this horrifying event could happen to anyone. Actually, I'm sure it has happened to others and what you're doing is really fighting for them too. God bless your family. You'll prevail in the end, you have to. There's a whole bunch of us staying updated on Facebook and we're all thinking of you and sending good wishes your way. Take care.

Dear Ronnie and Vinnie, I am so sorry for your tremendous loss, and the pain that you and your family are continuing to endure. I remember so well the early days with you guys and little Vinnie. He was the most handsome little boy in the neighborhood! As sweet as he was handsome! You two were a power of example for young couples back then. I'm sure it wasn't easy, but we never knew it! The Love and support you still have for eachother is commendable. It's no surprise that you raised such a beautiful family! May that Love and support from eachother and so many others continue to carry you through this difficult time. Justice for Vinnie will be justice for many! God Bless all of you! Keep the Faith! I'm sure Vinnie is so very proud of you guys, as you were of him.

To the "Chester Resident" comment.If any one knows the Arbuckles they should know both brothers Tom and Tim are scum.Both Tom and Tim would fight there own father in high school.What kind of son/person would punch there own blood?They both have no respect for any person not even themself.For Tim to punch Vinnie while laying on the ground it shows how much of a coward Tim truly is!!!

My GOD what you's are now going through no one knows the pain that you's have had to live with the last 3 years. We know exactly how you's are doing as we been in their. Our thoughts and prayers are with you everyday. Justice is finally going to prevail for you's.

let us hope and pray that these murderers don't get off as lightly as creepy cyi waters did for murdering my friend corey brink in 2002.
05-17-2011 10:47:42 AM EST
I just hope ALL those involved in this crime get just what they deserve. It was murder, no doubt about it and my thoughts and prayers go out to the Tamburello family. I know that Bolaski's father is a dirt bag who tried to hurt me when I was just a kid. Like father like son.

Reading about the actions of tristan blanchard at the trial reflects what type of person he is. a drug dealing, lying, murdering coward. we have known about him for years. no matter if he says he now has stopped dealing drugs, and is a perfect person, HE IS A LIAR! the district attorney has shown him to be a liar. Mr. Tamburello believe it or not you have a lot of respect from the people around here. A lot of people would never have done what you have done. you stood up for your son, never gave up. your courage and strength to go through what you and your family have gone through is admirable. you have our deepest respect. we know these men. their lack of remorse for what they have done is deplorable. I must tell you this tragedy makes us ashamed and sorry. sorry because we know these men. and ashamed because we never had the courage to do what you have done. tristan bolaski and their crew are bad people! If we had the courage to do what you have done and fight back against these cowards your son may still be alive today. I can't tell you how sorry we are. we are a good people. Vermont is a good state. I know this is hard for you to believe and I don't blame you. besides having you son killed you have been treated so terrible by this system of justice. this horrible crime has shamed us all. we hope and pray for you that you may get justice and bolaski be put in jail for the rest of his useless life, along with his gang of accomplices. we believe you will get justice. God Bless you and your family.

The facts are clear it was cold bloodied murder. Vinnie went there alone without a weapon, the other side went there with 2 guns, and they asked for Vinnie to meet them there, they lured him there. They came in a large group of guys, they planned on hurting and killing Vinnie who had no one on his side to back him up. I'm sure Vinnie knew this, and the only thing he did was assualt this kid's 'truck'. Vinnie never assualted anyone, they have no wounds, so there defence that it was self defence is false.
Fact 2, no one but Vinnie was hurt and murdered on that horrible night, so how could this be self defence. How does being shot in the back after being shot in the leg be called self defense, it can't.
Then they brutalized him as he laid dying by beating him with the butt of the rifle on his head til the rifle broke and then if that wasn't enough they kicked him in the face, the whole group of men have blood on thier hands, not self defence. If hanging was legal, I be there now hanging everyone one of them myself, and I wouldn't flick and eye. I believe justice hasn't been given in this murder. These punks are running around Vermont and got away with a horrible crime and the courts and police up there should hang there heads in shame.
I strongly dislike, if not hate Vermont after reading what happen to Vinnie and how he was murdered but even more how thier family was treated after he died by the police and the legal department there. There has to be justice here and now, but I strongly believe if they get away with it here, they will meet God someday and thier evil deeds will be layed before His feet and they will pay them for thier crimes there, and hell isn't a pleasant place for eternity.
If anyone good should come out of this murder, is this, Ronnie and Vinnie the parents never backed down and let this murder get swepted under the rug. They stood their ground, they have lost everything. They lost thier son, thier peace, thier business, thier home, and thier soul to the injustice that was inflicted on them. How much can a family suffer, how much pain can one endure from a senseless murder from a pack of punks from Vermont. They murdered more then Vinnie, they destroyed a family with grief and pain so deep and horrible there are no words to describe thier suffering, only God can save them now. My heart goes out to them and to thier children and family and close friends. This murder affected alot of people and the injustice this family has suffered through has torn at the fabric of decency and belief that the legal system puts away the crimnals. Well as we can see by the facts, they don't...... .
Hoping you find justice

yesterdays article in the valley was not surprising. blanchard treats the girls around here the same way reported in that paper. he's a known drug dealer that entices 13 and 14 year old girls to sleep with him with those drugs. he should be on trial for what he does to them. teh whole gang should be. if i had the courage u and ur family had id put them away forever. jsut no your not alone and a lot of us hope u find the justice u seek.
