CLEVELAND, Ohio -- A Cleveland charter school is remembering 14-year-old Alianna DeFreeze as a kind and beautiful person after learning her body was found in a vacant home on Fuller Avenue.
E Prep & Village Prep Woodland Hills Campus posted a tribute to Facebook Wednesday morning after making a plea to the public asking for help solving DeFreeze's murder.
Defreeze went missing Thursday on her way to school.
Surveillance video shows her around 6:50 a.m. Thursday getting off an RTA bus near East 93rd Street and Kinsman. The video shows her walking in the direction of a nearby McDonald's, but she never made it there.
The Cuyahoga County Prosecutor's Office and CrimeStoppers are offering a $22,500 reward for information in the case.
