MISHAWAKA, Ind. (WNDU) - Community members in Mishawaka came together Thursday night at a vigil for Breana Rouhselang.

Between 200 to 250 people showed up at the vigil at Baker Park. It was hosted by the YWCA and the Justice Center of St. Joseph County.

Family, friends and classmates of Rouhselang were all there to pay tribute to her. She was found stabbed to death Sunday inside a dumpster behind a restaurant in Mishawaka.

Someone close to Rouhselang spoke at the vigil and said she was an amazing person.

"I'm here to talk about Breana," he said. "She was a flower girl in my wedding. She's amazing. She's my chuckle bud. She was very easy to talk to. She always smiled, she was always very polite. Big eyes. It's a horrible thing that happened. There's no words I can say to make it easier or better."

A funeral for her will take place Monday, Dec. 17, at New Life Church.
