Four months after her fiancé, Jonathan Ferrell, was fatally shot, Cache Heidel hopes his death won’t be in vain.
During a recent interview with CNN, Heidel opened up about her relationship and how she hopes to move past her loss. She shared her memories of Ferrell as a gentle, sweet person that took joy in entertaining the people around him.
“He always liked to joke, to goof around, make other people smile,” she said. “He was always a joy to be around, he cared so much for other people more so than himself.”
She later went on to discuss her hope that Ferrell’s shooting death would spark a much needed conversation across the country, particularly after a year marred by the deaths of a number of young black men in controversial cases.
