Friends and neighbors hold vigil for murdered mother and daughter

SUMMERVILLE, SC (WCSC) -

Friends say Ashley Kaney and her daughter, Riley Burdick, left an impression on most of the people they met.

"Incredible, beautiful spirits, beautiful people."

Their home on Kershaw Road in Summerville is now a memorial. Toys, balloons, cards, and letters decorate the front door.

"They were wonderful people, a beautiful little girl," says Melissa Danner. "I saw her on Friday. She was just the sweetest little girl, with the biggest smile in the world."

Danner's daughter was in third grade with Riley.

"She wrote her a little letter. We brought it yesterday and set it on the porch, and she said I'm happy and I'm sad. She said I'm sad because I miss you and I'm happy because I know you're in a better place."

Jessica Giffon was one of the organizers of the vigil. She says she last spoke to Ashley last Friday night just as Ashley was getting ready for a date with Jacob Philip.

"Of everyone of us, of all the people that he worked with, there's no way we could have ever predicted this, not in a million years."

Giffon says Ashley was a beautiful person and she will be missed.

"Like a part of me is gone, and I need you back. It's just heartbreaking."
