Fields allegedly slammed his auto at the crowd of people protesting against the white nationalist rally on Saturday, killing 32-year old Heather Heyer, 32, a resident of Charlottesville.

Heather Heyer, the woman tragically killed in an attack that transpired in Charlottesville, Virginia on Saturday, was a 32-year-old paralegal who expressed outrage on Facebook against the racist rally held in her hometown.

"He had an African-American friend", she told the Blade.

The alleged driver, James Alex Fields Jr., a 20-year-old who travelled to Virginia from OH, had espoused extremist ideals since high school, the Washington Post quoted the suspect's former history teacher Derek Weimer as saying.

Weimer also told ABC News that Fields thought the Nazis "were pretty cool guys".

The car's driver, James Alex Fields Jr. was charged with second-degree murder and other counts.

The next scheduled court hearing is August 25, though Fields' attorney could request a bond hearing before then.

"We had talked about the rally, and I never asked her if she was coming or not", she said. She knew he was attending the "Unite The Right" rally this weekend and that he supported President Donald Trump, but said she didn't know it was a white nationalist rally. What HuffPost refers to as a "beautiful moment" soon turned to chaos when a man later identified as James Alex Fields allegedly drove his vehicle into the crowd, killing Heyer and injuring 19 others.


"I thought it had something to do with Trump".

Heyer was a strong-minded woman who always stood up for what she believed, she said.

The 32-year-old paralegal wanted to send a clear message to the neo-Nazis and Ku Klux Klan sympathizers who planned to stage one of the largest far-right rallies in recent US history that people abhor their views in the city where she was born, he said.

Facing sharp criticism for the president's initial response to the tragedy, the White House issued a follow-up statement that included a stronger rebuke of "White supremacists, KKK Neo-Nazi and all extremist groups".

Saturday's incident took place as hundreds of white nationalists converged on Charlottesville to protest the removal of a statue of Confederate general and slavery advocate Robert E. Lee. "We will investigate whether others may have been involved in planning the attack", the official said, adding that domestic terrorism charges are possible as well.

But many prominent Democrats, civil-rights activists, and some Republicans criticized him for not singling out and denouncing some of the white supremacy groups that were present at the protest, including neo-Nazis and Ku Klux Klan members.

He said "there was outrageous racism, anti-Semitism and hate in its most despicable form to be seen, and whenever it comes to such speech or such images it is repugnant". He really bought into this white supremacist thing.

"She died trying to bring about that goal", he told CNN on Sunday, the day after he was told his 32-year-old daughter had been run down on a Charlottesville, Virginia, street.
