Friends and family described Heather Williams as a kind-hearted person who would help anyone.

On May 2, Williams, of Jefferson, was found deceased at her boyfriend’s home. Her boyfriend, Chris Lee Myers, 39, of Jefferson, was arrested and charged in her death.

At the vigil, Fairfield spoke with Williams’ parents. Her father encouraged people to donate to Heartly House in Williams’ memory.

Williams’ friend Jordan Abel spoke about her own abusive relationship and how Williams helped her leave it.

Later in the episode, Abel speaks with Mongilio and Etzler about her experience with domestic violence and ways people can help survivors.
