METAIRIE, LA (WVUE) - Taylor Friloux's family spent Thursday planning the 21-year-old's funeral. Friloux's mom said she's still in shock and can't understand why someone would commit such a heinous crime.
"She was loved by everyone. She was the sweetest person that I knew," Jamie Reavis said Thursday.
Friloux was the type of girl who kept to herself but had a powerful impact on those who knew her.
"She was my only sister," said Terry Morgan.
"And they were best friends," Reavis added.
Morgan barely had the words to express how she feels. The family is still in shock over her sudden death.
"My heart aches, my body is just numb," Reavis said.
Holding Taylor's niece, Reavis knows the little girl will never know her aunt after she was stabbed to death while working her job as a shift manager at Raising Cane's.
"I just want to know why," Reavis said. "I mean, if your gonna rob a place, take the money and go. Why such a vicious act?"
Reavis said she never thought she would have to come to a funeral home to say goodbye to her, but she's truly grateful for the outpouring of support she's received from her family, friends and the community
"Everybody has had nothing but good things to say about her, and it makes me proud," Reavis said.
As for the suspects, who are former employees of Raising Cane's, Reavis can't recall a time her daughter ever complained about having trouble with anyone. In fact, Taylor, she explains, was the type of person who got along with everyone. She said she was a girl with a pure heart filled with big dreams, about to go back to college this fall.
"She was a really good person and she did not deserve this - not at all," Reavis said.
