    I find it strange that she was found dead on a Mitchell building and that was also her name.Krystal was a good person with a big heart. She took alot of abuse from the ex boyfriend. I would check him out he even ran over her with his car. She did not deserve to die like this something is not right here and does not need to be swept under the rug no matter how many mistakes the kid made. I am her aunt and I know that something not good has happened here.

      Krystal was a free spirit. I knew her well but remained out of contact for some time and have been trying to get in touch with her for years. I remember back when her and her ex bf (nick) were constantly fighting both physical and verbal. I wouldn’t be surprised if he was the one who did this. She wasn’t perfect but didn’t deserve this. Hope justice finds you peace sweetheart. You WILL be missed dearly.
