This is really tragic. I met heather a few times through a friend of a friend. She used to come into peet's at town and country all the time with her ex, and I would occasionally bump into her at borders and Rasputin. She seemed like a sweet, fun and nice young lady, and I am saddened that this happened. Based on some of the details of this story, I would not be surprised if she was murdered. I hope they can prosecute her boyfriend.
