Eyewitness News spoke with Natalie’s boyfriend.

“”I have a tradition by myself that I watch the first episode of a Christmas Story and I told her that, she texted me around 1 a.m. saying she loved me and then she wished me a Merry Christmas. I never got to text her back because I was sleeping,” said Natalie’s boyfriend Andy.

Dempsey had worked with the fire company for three years.

“She was a beautiful person,” a spokesperson for the Mizpah Volunteer Fire Company told Eyewitness News.
