Best man fatally stabs bride in Raleigh, North Carolina

Best man fatally stabs bride in Raleigh, North Carolina, In Raleigh, North Carolina headlines blare "Best man fatally stabs bride," according to an April 24 Inquisitor report. When Jamie Kirk Hahn and Nation Richard Hahn got married in 2009, Jonathan Wayne Broyhill was their best man. Now, the former best man fatally stabbed the bride.

Not only did Jonathan Wayne Broyhill fatally stab Jamie Kirk Hahn, but he also stabbed Nation Richard Hahn. Nation Richard Hahn survived the stabbing. Jamie Kirk Hahn's family said,

"We lost a beautiful and loving wife, daughter and friend … We all lost a pure and brave spirit. She had a gift for bringing us together – black and white, young and old, gay and straight. She challenged us to work together for a better world."

Jamie raised funds for non-profit groups and political campaigns through her firm Sky Blue Strategies. She was well known in the region, and worked tirelessly to make the world a better place. What a void her death has left not only to her family and friends, but also to her community.

As for Broyhill, he is recovering from his own self-inflicted stab wounds, and has been charged with Jamie's murder and Nation's attempted murder. So far, police have not revealed the motive, but did say that it was not "domestic related."

What an incredibly sad story. It is hard to believe that the former best man stabbed the bride just a few years later. What could have been the motivation behind this strange crime? No matter what it was, the community must still mourn this woman's death.
