I knew the woman who was killed growing up. She lived close to me and was good friends with my younger sister. Her name was Katie McManus and she was one of the most beautiful, sweet and compassionate people I have ever known.
She will be greatly missed and I can only hope that her passing in such a beautiful part of this world is some consolation to those who knew her better.
