[US][TX] Seeking something positive in the wake of Amy's murder

Amy Partner was someone before she married Federal Agent Jeff Yager. Seeking a scholarship in honor of her bright spirit and creative love of design - instead of in memory of her murder - seems right - It gives Amy back some of who she is. After reading across the internet I can see that Amy is obviously much more to people's hearts than a victim of her husband.

A former Amarillo College student is remembered for her creativity and unique approach to life. She's remembered for a drive for life described as contagious. Amy Yager, 26, was found dead early Friday morning from two gunshot wounds. According to police reports, Jeff Yager, the victim's husband, walked to a neighbor's house after the shooting. He said he called 911 once he saw the gruesome scene. Ann Fry, an interior design instructor, described Amy Yager as energetic and full of life. "She was talented, she was smart, she was fun," Fry said. "We are not only going to miss her, we already miss her now." Yager majored in interior design and enjoyed her time in the interior design department, Fry said... Fry was so moved by the loss of Yager that she has made an effort to create an interior design department scholarship in her honor. She said she hopes the scholarship will be available soon. "We want not only those in the interior design department but those who knew Amy who are not involved with interior design to be a part of her memory," she said. Fry said plans a celebration service was being planned. According to Amarillo police, officers arrested Jeff Yager, 26. He was being held in Randall County Jail on a murder charge. A motive for the crime was being investigated. Anyone with information should call the special crimes unit at 378-9468. [Full article here]
