“All we are going to do is create TikToks,” he said. “As if she was that boisterous girl who loves to make Tik Toks, always happy.”

Goodlow said Brown was calm. He described Dobson, better known as KD, as the funny friend who loves baseball.

“I’d see him in the hallway, flirting,” Goodlow said. “He used to be that cool dude.”

“She could have been a child for anyone,” said Tekera Ellis, the school’s mother. “I really hate that this happens to families.”

Ellis has two daughters who attend Eagle’s Landing. She said her 9th grader was a close friend of KD.

“It’s hard to lose a friend but all children,” said Ellis, “but that would make them even tighter.” “They really learn the art of being with your friends, and being supportive.
