• Alison Parker’s Boyfriend Pays Heartbreaking Tribute Just Hours After Her Death

    The boyfriend of Alison Parker, one of two reporters shot dead on live television Wednesday morning, took to Twitter just hours after the shooting to express how devastated he was at losing her.

    Chris Hurst also works at WDBJ7 news, anchoring its 6 and 11 o’clock broadcasts. At 9:31 AM, less than three hours after the 6:45 AM shooting and less than 20 minutes after the station confirmed their deaths, he posted a series of messages to Twitter saying he was “very much in love” with Parker and that the two were hoping to be married.

    We were together almost nine months. It was the best nine months of our lives. We wanted to get married.We just celebrated her 24th birthday — Chris Hurst (@chrishurstwdbj) August 26, 2015

     

     

    She was the most radiant woman I ever met. And for some reason she loved me back. She loved her family, her parents and her brother.
