The victim's mother was reported as saying, “I came to pick her up and spoke to her over the phone. Within five minutes of our conversation, chaos erupted, and someone mentioned she had been stabbed." She further added, “I haven't seen her face yet, and I still believe our daughter is alive. I can't accept that she's gone. I'm not ready to see her in that state. We sent her to college with the hope that we would see her smiling."
