University of Idaho victim’s sister: ‘She had so much life left to live’
MOSCOW, Idaho – How do you remember a sister, taken from you at just 20 years old?
The sister of University of Idaho student Xana Kernodle did just that, in a statement shared with ABC News.
Jazzmin Kernodle wrote “Xana was one of the people I have ever known. I am lucky to have her as a sister.”
Moscow Police have released very little information, other than to say they were killed with an ‘edged weapon’ and that no one is in custody.
Xana graduated from Post Falls High School and was a junior, majoring in marketing.
“She was so lighthearted, and always lifted up a room,” Jazzmin wrote. “She made me such a proud big sister and I wish I could have more time with her. She had so much life left to live.”
“Our hearts go out to Kaylee, Maddie and Ethan and all their families as well. They were all amazing people,” Jazzmin said, “and were loved so much. My sister was so lucky to have them in her life.”
“Tell the people you love how much they mean to you… Xana was so happy and loved, and it breaks my heart. We are keeping everyone in our prayers and appreciate and love everyone who has reached out. It means more than you know.”
Jazzmin also said her family is at a loss for words and “anxiously waiting for updates on the investigation.”
