Friends and family held a tearful tribute for a Napoleon woman stabbed to death. The community came together Tuesday night to remember 19-year-old Katilyn Nagel.

It's been a difficult 24 hours for Katie's friends, as they try to make sense of her tragic death.    

"The way she went…it's just really awful," said friend Heather Magers.

On Monday, Katie was found stabbed to death in a home in Napoleon. Michael Peddicord, 22, a man police say Katie knew, has been charged with aggravated murder.

The small community of Napoleon stood together Tuesday night, huddled under a shelter house, remembering the one they lost so suddenly.

Some shared memories.

"I knew her when she was little," says family friend Brittany McFarland. "She was always such a ball of fun and a little blonde-haired girl who used to run around and bother me."

Others reflected on Katie's outgoing personality.

"She was the type of person you wanted to be around," says friend Erica Gonzalez. "She was very happy, bubbly. She was very energetic. You couldn't go one minute being around her and not smiling."

Gonzalez says Katie was a student at Northwest State who loved dancing and being with her friends.

"She loved getting tattoos and piercings. She was a little crazy but that's what we loved about her," Gonzalez says.

As reality sets in, it's the memories that keep everyone going.

"Katie just holds a place in everyone's heart," McFarland says. "She was loved, and she always will be, and she will be missed forever."
