MILFORD, CT (WFSB) -
The town of Milford continues to mourn the loss of Maren Sanchez, who was killed Friday morning at Jonathan Law High School.
Candles flickered and rain drops fell on Saturday as the flowers piled up at the base of the purple rock that was spray painted Sanchez's favorite color.
"I know it's a symbol, but it's just a matter of all of us coming to support, coming to give love," Lucy Ferrara said.
Ferrara brought balloons to the purple rock and told Eyewitness News that her sons were friends with Sanchez, who was a well-loved junior class president at the high school.
Sanchez was stabbed and killed Friday morning by her classmate. The Associated Press reported that his name is Christopher Plaskon. Police have charged Plaskon with murder, but they are not releasing a motive.
According to students at Jonathan Law High School, Plaskon had ask Sanchez to the prom, and she said no.
"Children shouldn't have to go through this kind of ordeal," said Ferrara.
Classmates spent the day dropping off flowers, and many wore purple ribbons as a sign of support.
The high school also had counselors and therapy dogs on hand to help students through the difficult time.
"In a way it's kind of sad, seeing everyone cry, but it's a good thing that everyone is here getting help," said Sarah Golden, a Jonathan Law student.
Saturday the medical examiner ruled that Sanchez died from stab wounds to her upper body and neck.
According to Edward Gavin, one of the attorney's representing Plaskon, the teen is undergoing psychiatric evaluation in a hospital and won't be in court on Monday as originally planned.
The attorney said that the prosecutors will decide if Plaskon is going to be charged as an adult.
"We know they've suffered a tremendous loss and our thoughts and prayers are with the Sanchez family," Gavin said.
"These families are suffering," said Ferrara. "Maren's family and the other boy's family as well. This affects everyone, it's rough."
There will be counselors at the high school on Sunday and Monday. There will also be a vigil on the football field at 7 p.m. on Monday.
