It was almost a year since Susan Bro lost his daughter to the violence that broke out last summer’s white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Va.

Bro’s daughter Heather Heyer was a 32-year-old lawyer who was in Charlottesville to drive back to the neo-Nazis, Ku Klux Klan members and other white nationalists gathered in the city. She was killed when a car collided with the amount of counter prototypes she marched with as they crossed the road at 4 th and Market streets downtown. Nineteen others were injured.

In a StoryCorps talk last month, brother 61, her daughter remembers her former chairman, Alfred Wilson, 51.

Heyer was more than an employee of Wilson. They were friends, and she was also close to Wilson’s family. Wilson reminds of the day he met Heyer only when she entered the office for a work interview. “Heather was very honest with me and told me,” I’m not writing. I have never worked in an office. Everything I’ve done all my life is bartend or waitress.

  1. Has she not got a heart, to sell a story and screw up 2 innocent peoples lifes (jacks partner and there baby) what a horrid disgusting person! I mean it says it all about what type of girl she is when her own mothers activites on facebook are “one night stands” and worse!!! Truly horrible if she has any sense she will take the cash she got and get rid of the baby for the sake of his partner and child. As for him she saw him coming and he was a fool who played right into her hands. My thoughts are with his partner and baby girl http://textbacklinkexchanges.com/former-page-3-girl-rhian-sugden-looks-plum-in-2019-calendar-shoot/
