Woman stabbed in Toronto financial district dies in hospital

The victim of a random stabbing in Toronto's financial district was just beginning life as a newlywed.

TORONTO — The victim of a random stabbing in Toronto’s financial district was just beginning life as a newlywed.

Police identified the dead woman as 28-year-old Rosemarie Junor.

She died Wednesday night after days languishing in hospital following last week’s stabbing at a Shoppers Drug Mart in the underground network of shops and restaurants known as PATH.

Social media profiles belonging to a Kim Junor feature a photo that matches the image released by police.

Kim Junor’s Facebook profile depicts several photos of a woman preparing for a summer wedding. A Twitter post suggests she walked down the aisle four months ago.

Junor worked as a medical technician in downtown Toronto.

“We are shocked and greatly saddened by this senseless tragedy, which took the life of our colleague,” said a statement from Medcan Clinic.

“Our organization is like a big family and we are all grieving today for this loss. Rosemarie was just such a vibrant, happy and glowing person. She had so many good friends here, and was such a positive force here, and we are all just devastated. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family.”

Junor was attacked when a woman walked into the Shoppers Drug Mart wielding a knife and stabbed her.

Police have arrested 40-year-old Rohini Bisesar and charged her with second-degree murder.

They have previously said they don’t believe Junor knew her alleged attacker.
