The Great Brak River residents paid their final respects to the town’s only librarian, Clodine Nuys, when they laid her to rest over the weekend.
The body of the 22-year-old librarian was found tied up behind a crèche near the Great Brak River.
An 11-year-old boy discovered the body during a community-led search on February 11.
Nuys’s hands and feet were tied with tape, and a cable tie was found around her neck.
On Saturday, friends, relatives and residents converged at the United Reformed Church to remember the life of Nuys.
Her boyfriend of seven years, Luciano Maniwil said his dream to one day marry Nuys had been crushed.
“I can’t imagine how things will be moving forward,” said Maniwil.
Maniwil was the person who contacted her family asking about Nuys’s whereabouts after he tried to call her to no avail.
Suspect Russel Ayford, (24) made an appearance in the Great Brak River magistrates court on 19 February.
He will appear in court again tomorrow for a formal bail application.
