A murder is always bad news. When it happens almost on your doorstep it is very bad news.
I never met Nasim Jamil, though it's possible I passed her in the street. Indeed, I had never heard of her until her death hit the national headlines.
It transpires that some of the mums from toddlers knew her or have relatives and friends who did.
Today all that can be done is to weep with those who weep.
This is a proud and diverse city, and as we prepare our hearts to welcome, afresh, the Prince of Peace may that peace fill this place once more.
Eternal rest grant unto her, Oh Lord, may she rest in peace.
