“He was really focused on Stephanie and she was focused on him. I really thought he had this incredible relationship going,” said McMillan’s best friend, Ross Edwards.

Edwards says that makes this tragedy even more shocking.

“It hasn’t even hit me fully. It’s almost like it’s out of a movie,” said Edwards.

Edwards met McMillan when they were five and says they always remained close.

“We always managed to keep our relationship together no matter what,” said Edwards. “Todd was like a brother to me. He was one of my best buddies growing up,” added Edwards.
