In the hours since Allison Owen was stabbed in a parking lot, people who knew her have been sharing their grief on Facebook.

“Allison, you were a smart girl with a great life. I didn't know you too well, but I remember you in my classes in middle school and high school. You were so caring and always willing to help others. As you watch over us, you'll be in our prayers. Rest In Peace and God bless,” Eric Vo posted.

Owen died early Thursday evening at St. Francis Hospital. She’d been stabbed hours earlier in the parking lot of a Windsor bank.
