Suffolk, Va. – Family and friends continue to grieve the loss of a Suffolk high school senior.
An emotional vigil was held on Tuesday night outside of King’s Fork High School.
Tear stained cheeks were shown from the glow of candle light as the friends of Denishe-Ya King stood shoulder to shoulder, hoping for answers in a dark time.
“It’s aggravating because you just don’t know what goes through people’s heads. And having her as a best friend, she would always talk to me and tell me we’re going to get through this year, we’re going to graduate, then you’re going to graduate and then I’m going to graduate to go somewhere in life. And she just didn’t have the chance to go somewhere in life,” says Layla Atkins, a friend.
Early Saturday morning, King’s journey ended.
The King’s Fork senior was at a house party on Saint James Avenue.
