A family in Vernon, B.C. is mourning the dying of a tender girl killed in England Tuesday.
Charmaine Wadsworth said her stepdaughter, Ashley Wadsworth, 19, was the sufferer of a homicide in Essex, northeast of London.
Essex police say a 23-12 months-vintage man has been arrested on suspicion of murder.
“We’re just remembering how strong and sensible and witty Ashley used to be and the way sort she used to be and the way she was once at all times 10 steps sooner than all people,” Charmaine Wadsworth stated in a phone interview. “And she’ll be dearly ignored by each and each one of us.

“She was once a fantastic soul and we will miss her greatly, and we’re simply extraordinarily devastated.”
Charmaine Wadsworth mentioned the family is looking for privacy as they grieve Ashley’s death.
Canadian and British officials are pronouncing little in regards to the killing. Confirmation that Ashley Wadsworth was the sufferer has come from circle of relatives, not police or consular assets.
Essex police, in a couple of statements, mentioned the killing took place on Feb. 1.
