Telling Tori's Story

The family and friends of Victoria Dail are left picking up the pieces after she died earlier this month from a suspected heroin overdose. Holding a photo of her playing Nansemond-Suffolk Academy volleyball in 2011 are, from left, her sister, Kelsey Honeycutt; her stepmother, Amy Dail; her father, Michael Dail; and her best friend, Jazmin Caldwell.

Victoria Dail was not the kind of person you would suspect of being addicted to heroin.

She was an athlete at Nansemond-Suffolk Academy and at Virginia Wesleyan College. She was a 2012 honor graduate at NSA. She was raised in a middle-class neighborhood. She was organized and well rounded. She was a good friend. She had a laugh described by her mother as boisterous. She was outgoing and always tried to make others around her feel comfortable. She had recently enlisted in the U.S. Navy and was looking forward to her basic training coming up in March.

She was just an amazing girl that tried to do good in life, said her father, Michael Dail.
