Shooting victim's friend: Amanda is the "sweetest person"

Posted: Updated:

The family and friends of the victim in Tuesday's murder-suicide incident in Sioux Falls are speaking out.

Amanda Connors, 24, died in the murder-suicide tragedy outside Cost Cutters along 41st Street in Sioux Falls Tuesday.

Adam Sieff was one of Connors' closest friends. The two grew up together in Ellsworth and Luverne, Minnesota. Sieff says the world lost a wonderful human being--- one that will truly be missed and now people are asking why.

"Back home in Ellsworth people are asking why? Why did this happen? Why such an evil thing and who could do this, and especially to Amanda," Sieff said.

Sieff remembers Amanda as a fun-loving sweet person.

"She's the sweetest person and she's got an infectious laugh, and is just so fun loving and a fun person," Sieff said. "She's a good friend to so many people so I know people are just stunned tonight and hurt, and are trying to figure out why this happened."

Sieff says many of his friends are looking to help the Connors family with memorial and funeral plans, but Sieff says right now it's much too soon.  

A fund has been set up through Wells Fargo to help offset funeral costs for the Amanda Connors' family. Donations can be made at any Wells Fargo Bank nationwide-- just request the Amanda Connors Fund.
