VIDEO: Murder Victim's Girlfriend Devastated by Loss


The city's latest homicide victim's girlfriend is heartbroken after losing the love of her life.

Hailey Cote says 20-year-old Justin Greenwood died on Saturday after being stabbed in west Windsor.

The 22-year-old says her and Greenwood had two children together, a two-year-old and a seven-month-old..

"I'm in shock, I never thought a day in my life that I would have to do this, bury the love of my life and my best friend, I never thought this would happen," says Cote. 

She says she knew Greenwood for seven years and describes him as the most beautiful person she's ever known.

"Everybody knows how Justin was a hard working guy, loving father, most amazing guy I've ever known in my life, I've known him for seven years.  He was just incredible."

Cote says she was a family event on Saturday when she got the phone call.

"There was all over the news and all over Facebook that an incident had happened and then I got a phone call from his sister saying I needed to get to the hospital because he was stabbed and then five minutes later, I got a phone call saying he did not make it," says Cote.

Cote says one of Greenwood's best friends has started a GoFundMe page.

A 19-year-old man has been charged with first degree murder, and Windsor police are seeking more suspects. 

Cote tells AM800 News she's also making t-shirts for Greenwood's funeral.

Cote says the front of the t-shirt will include photos of his children and the back will say Justice for Justin.     

She says funeral details have not been announced.
