It seems that everyone here is still in shock over what happened. Emily worked as a waitress at the Cutthroat Cafe in Bailey...and it's no doubt that everyone who went by there today did so in memory of her.

“She was a real joy to work with and to have around, she made everyone laugh and giggle, she brought out the little girl in old ladies,” said one of Emily’s co-workers.

Everyone in the community says she was one of the nicest friends a person could have.

“She was always there for everyone, she was a really great friend, just really sweet,” said one of her classmates.

Friends say Emilly was a fun-loving typical 16-year-old who was active in school….she was a member of the speech team and the volleyball team…and friends say no one was closer to her then her twin brother Casey.

They say school just won't be the same without her.

“It's just so sad knowing that when I got to school on Monday I’m not going to see Emily, “said classmate Ariel Ingalls.

An outpouring of support for the Keyes famiy was evident on Thursday in Bailey as flags flew at half-staff and signs all over town read pray for Emily, pray for Bailey.

There is also a jar at the Cutthroat Cafe where people can donate and pay respects.

“We are all kind of at a loss, everybody wants to do something...but we're not sure what it is we should be doing,” said one member of the community.

And the sadness in Bailey will likely last for some the entire community tries to come to grips with what happened.
