Friends Remember Murder Victim

“The Three Stephanies” are down to two after one was shot Christmas Day. Stefanie Comack was one of three St. Maries girls in the class of 2011 named Stephanie. Stephanie Mills, Stephani Brede and Ms. Comack adopted the moniker when they became friends in middle school. Ms. Comack was shot Dec. 25. She was airlifted to Kootenai Medical Center where she later died. Her boyfriend, Joe Herrera, was arrested and charged with second-degree murder. … Her friends described her as the “life of the party” and a “tomboy.” … One of the Stephanie Trio, Ms. Mills, met Ms. Comack in the sixth grade. “We called her “Bugs” because she used to put bugs in her pockets and bring them inside when she was little,” Ms. Mills said. “She was upbeat, all smiles and when she did get mad, she was over it in a second”/Mary Orr, St. Maries Gazette Record.
