A Minnesota woman who was killed by UCLA gunman Mainak Sarkar was studying to become a doctor before her life “was cut short much too soon by her estranged husband,” according to the victim’s sister.

On Thursday evening, Sarkar’s former sister-in-law wrote on Facebook that she was “in a state of shock,” following the discovery of her sister’s body just hours earlier in Brooklyn Park, Minn.

“My sister, Ashley Hasti, was the smartest, coolest and funniest person I knew,” wrote sister Alex Hasti. “She could do anything she dreamed of, whether it was studying abroad in four different countries, acting in school plays, trying stand up comedy improv, and becoming a doctor.”

The post has since been deleted.
