'A shining light': Crawfordville murder victim remembered by her family for boundless love

Brittany Steier always saw the best in people and inspired them to live into their greatest potential.

"She was so full of light and love and compassion," said her older sister Christy Bertera. "That is what I want her to be remembered for."

The 6-foot-tall, 31-year-old mother of two had a boisterous, contagious laugh that was silenced too soon on July 18.

"Brittany decided instead of trying to find a way to shrink to the rest of the world and fit in that she would wear five-inch heels and be six-foot-five," her sister said.

Creative and crafty, she loved to personalize her clothes in order to stand out.

Police say Steier was shot in the driveway of a Crawfordville home while exchanging her children with their father, Edward McNeil Harris Jr., after 11 p.m. on July 18.

Harris was taken into custody and has been charged with first-degree capital murder and possession of a weapon by a convicted felon. He is being held in Wakulla County Jail without bond.

Sister plans to raise her two kids

With their mother gone, Christy is caring for her sister's kids: Dallas, 2, and Karter, 1, and plans to raise them with her and her husband's three kids.

She is already grappling with the fact that one day when they are old enough to understand, she will be tasked with describing her sister to her children who will not have the chance to know her for themselves.


Edward McNeil Harris Jr., 33, was arrested Sunday on charges of first-degree murder and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, the Wakulla County Sheriff's Office announced on its Facebook page.
