The names of victims of the weekend mass killing in Nova Scotia are beginning to emerge.

The president of the Nova Scotia Teachers Union says Lisa McCully, a teacher at Debert Elementary School was a victim of senseless violence who was known as a passionate teacher and ``as a shining love'' in the lives of her friends and family.

Constable Heidi Stevenson was the first victim to be named.

Her husband Dean Stevenson, teaches at Cole Harbour District High School.

The couple has two children.

Darcy Dobson posted on Facebook that her mother Heather O'Brien, a nurse from Truro, was among the dead.

She wrote that ``The pain comes and goes in waves. I feel like I'm outside of my own body. This can't be real.''

Dobson is reaching out to the friends and families of the other 15 victims, saying they are ``all forever connected in this horrible mess.''

Police continue to investigate and to try to determine a motive for the murders.
