Edmonton homicide victim former Lethbridge resident

WATCH ABOVE: A woman from Lethbridge has been confirmed as Edmonton’s 13th homicide victim of 2015. 38-year old Nadine Skow was found dead in her apartment Tuesday morning. Her former co-workers at the local YWCA are remembering her as a caring woman who always put others first. Erik Mikkelsen has the story.

LETHBRIDGE – Staff at the YWCA of Lethbridge and District are mourning the loss of a former coworker.

“To know that her last minutes on this earth were in absolute fear and abandonment is really quite sickening,” said former coworker and CEO of YWCA Lethbridge & District Kristine Cassie.

Thirty-eight-year old Nadine Skow was found dead in her apartment Tuesday morning, with multiple stab wounds. She was discovered by coworkers after she failed to show up for work for several days.

Edmonton police and homicide detectives have arrested and charged 38-year-old Silva Koshwal with second-degree murder and indignity to a human body.

Investigators said Skow and Koshwal were involved in a common-law relationship that ended about a year ago.

“We know all too well that domestic violence knows no limits. It is unjust, it is cruel, it is senseless,” said Cassie.

Cassie and the YWCA stress that domestic violence can happen to anyone, anytime, and while help is available, more is needed.

“This isn’t a game that we’re playing – these are people’s lives, and if you want to start to make some serious changes then we need to invest in the generations to come,” she said.

A memorial balloon release to remember and honour Skow will be held at the YWCA Serenity Garden on Friday, Aug. 29 at 12:15 p.m.
