We are learning more on Monday night about the victim of this weekend's fatal stabbing.
Kathleen Goffinet was pregnant when police say her husband Anthony Goffinet stabbed her in the chest. It all happened near the Taco Bell on Green River Road on Saturday night.
Friends describe Katie as fun, caring and passionate.
High school friend, Jenni Case is holding onto a scrapbook. It's pages full of pictures of Katie, and lasting memories of a lost friend.
"If you ask anybody who knew Katie in high school, they'd tell you she was fun, energetic, and a wonderful person to be around. Everyone called her the 'Spaz' because she would literally spaz out over the silliest things. She was very fun and could make anyone laugh. She was absolutely crazy, but she drew you in with her personality," said Case.
Case says Katie attended Reitz High School and Signature School.
She excelled in speech, theatre and singing, but Case says Katie's life took an unexpected turn at the age of 19 when her mom died.
"It affected her so deeply, I don't think she ever recovered. Katie headed down a very dark path, and that's just not who she was. She just wasn't herself, she really wasn't," Case said.
Case says Katie became anorexic, turned to drugs, and surrounded herself with the wrong people.
That included her husband, Anthony Goffinet, who Case says Katie was trying to leave days before the murder.
"She hadn't been home all week when this all happened. It just breaks my heart that she was so close to getting away from him," Case said.
Katie leaves behind two kids, Angel, who is turning 3 and Michael, who is turning 2. Case says she was about three and a half months pregnant with a third child.
"I just hate it so much her life turned out this way, she was just a wonderful person," Case said.
Case says she'd like answers. She wants to know why her fun, energetic friend can now only be seen in pictures.
Friends tell 14 NEWS, an autopsy on 26-year-old Kathleen Goffinet is scheduled for Tuesday morning.
Case says Katie's family is considering laying her to rest beside her mother in Evansville.
A memorial fund for Katie's children has also been set up at Old National Bank. The accounts, For Benefit of Angel Goffinet and For Benefit of Michael Freeman, are to save money for the children's college expenses. Contributions to these accounts can be made at any Old National Bank.
