A PRIVATE memorial service for murdered student nurse Karen Buckley will be held at Glasgow Caledonian University on Tuesday afternoon.
Karen’s former friends and classmates will pay tribute to the Irish woman who was killed on April 12th 2015.
The service was organised by The School of Health and Life Sciences at the university where Karen, 24, from Cork, was studying for a masters degree in occupational therapy.
Vincent McKay, dean of the School of Health and Life Sciences, said: “The School of Health and Life Sciences has invited Karen’s friends, classmates and staff to a small remembrance service on Tuesday afternoon, which will be led by a University Chaplain.
“This offers students and staff the opportunity to come together for a time of quiet, personal reflection, to remember both Karen and her family at this time.”
Alexander Pacteau, 21 at the time, was given a minimum sentence of 23 years for the murder and his attempts to dispose of Miss Buckley’s body.
