"Rest in peace, we will miss you, party friend", the card says. Next to the card, a candle and a few roses.
Yesterday, it became clear that the 17-year-old girl found on Vestdijk was a student of Sint Joris high school. A gathering was organized at the high school last night to help fellow students and their parents cope with the loss.
At the school, a memorial was created by the girl’s friends.
The girl’s 22-year-old ex-boyfriend turned himself in Sunday evening and was arrested. He is the main suspect, but the circumstances leading to the death are still unclear.
