She loved lip gloss. Her lips were often pursed together in Snapchat selfies, wisps of wavy black hair framing her cheeks. She adored children and would often babysit.
She had just graduated from Timberland Academy, a fresh-faced 14-year-old about to enter Muskegon Heights Academy as a ninth-grader. “She was an outgoing person, she was loving. She was a good student,” remembered her mother.
