Father of girl killed after classroom stabbing wants world to know the “beautiful soul she was”

Global News published this video item, entitled “Father of girl killed after classroom stabbing wants world to know the “beautiful soul she was”” – below is their description.

The father of a 17-year-old girl who died after being stabbed in a classroom in Leduc, Alta., says he wants the world to know what an incredible person she was.

“She was this bright-eyed daddy’s girl who was loved by her mum, her dad, her brothers, her sisters… by this whole community,” Dale Winkler said of his daughter Jennifer on Tuesday night.

A Leduc girl is being remembered as one of a kind after she was fatally stabbed at a high school in the community just south of Edmonton on Monday.

Jennifer Winkler, 17, died after she was stabbed by a fellow student inside Christ the King School Monday morning.

On Tuesday, police announced Dylan Thomas Pountney, 19, is facing one count of first-degree murder. Police said on Monday the two students knew each other, but didn’t say how.

Dale said while he is still trying to come to terms with what he called the “nightmare” that unfolded just a day earlier, he feels compelled to talk about his love for his daughter.

“She was bright, smart, creative — always doing funny little things,” he said. “They say… (kids can be) crazy teenagers — there was none of that. She wasn’t like that.

“I want everyone to know who Jenny was, what a beautiful soul she was… She would never hurt anybody.”
