For almost a week, detectives searched for Princess. They handed out missing persons fliers asking if anyone had seen her.

On Wednesday, investigators found pPrincess's body in a wooded area off Roan Lane.

Prayers poured tonight from the hearts of scores of friends. They came to pay their respects.

"When she walked into a room, she gave the smile and the laugh that would light up," said friend Melanie Garrett. "She was one of the people, if you didn't know her, you weren't from Palm Beach County."

Friend Jacqueline Mahoney, added, "You could be upset and she'd make you happy," she said. "She'll give the shirt off her back if she had to."

Princess's family wore yellow roses, her favorite flower, as they begged for answers to who killed their princess.

"It won't bring her back but we'd know who did this to her, and we'd maybe find out why," said Carithers.

The family is asking anyone with information about who took Princess's life to please come forward. Call Crime Stoppers and remember tips can be anonymous.
