Hundreds of friends and family members are still desperately hoping for answers in the killing of Pearland teen Arrijana Hill, who was found murdered in her family's home a full week ago.
A Pearland Police Department spokesperson told CutlureMap on Friday that there is still no new information being released with the case.
Police have revealed few details about the murder of 16-year-old Hill. They only say that she was found inside her parent's home in a gated community on East Cedar Hollow Drive, apparently stabbed to death according to the medical examiner.
"We don't have any answers. The biggest question is why. I can't make up any answers."
With so much mystery surrounding her death, friends and family found strength together through a prayer vigil held at the Cross Roads Community Church, holding hands and lighting candles in the memory of the fallen teen, earlier this week. At the end of the vigil, 300 balloons — in Hill's favorite color — were released into the sky.
Classmates from Pearland's Glenda Dawson High School were in attendance, many in disbelief about what had happened to their friend.
"Arrijana was a great person, a great classmate and a great teammate," her friend Richard Smith told KHOU Channel 11.
Friends said the teen was liked by all, and Hill was a member of both the track and volleyball teams.
"We don't have any answers," parent Akima Taylor told KHOU. "The biggest question is why. I can't make up any answers."
A wake for Hill has been scheduled for Friday at 7 p.m. at Cross Roads Community Church. The funeral service will also take place in the church on Saturday at 2 p.m.
