Horrible. Such a light the world has too few of to lose so senselessly.
Peace to her family and little brother.

This is a horrible thing to happen to these two families. I feel so badly for the parents of this young woman she had so much to offer in life. I pray she is with the Good Lord now as I believe she is. As far as the young man that killed her is confusing as to why? Zoloft can effect people in bad ways but coming off of it I don't think that should have effected him other than being depressed again. Maybe he was just afraid of losing her so if he couldn't have her no one could. So, Sad, So very Sad and sense less. My prayers are with both families they have both lost a child and the dreams for them.
