We were together almost nine months. It was the best nine months of our lives. We wanted to get married.We just celebrated her 24th birthday— Chris Hurst (@chrishurstwdbj) August 26, 2015
She was the most radiant woman I ever met. And for some reason she loved me back. She loved her family, her parents and her brother.— Chris Hurst (@chrishurstwdbj) August 26, 2015
I am comforted by everyone at @WDBJ7. We are a family. She worked with Adam every day. They were a team. I am heartbroken for his fiancee.— Chris Hurst (@chrishurstwdbj) August 26, 2015
Parker, and her cameraman Adam Ward, were shot and killed by a gunman while filming a live news report for the CBS affiliate. The gunman is still on the loose.
