Vigils were organized in Great Britain to commemorate the 28-year-old and to draw attention to the problem of violence against women.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson gave condolences to Nessa’s family, and Princess Kate confessed that she was “saddened by the loss of another innocent young woman on our streets.”
