A city in Louisiana mourns the d*ath of a 21-year-old marketing student who was found shot to d*ath in her car, waiting for a train to pass, according to authorities.
A memorial to flowers and stuffed animals formed near the railroad tracks where Allison Rice was discovered on the outskirts of Baton Rouge, Los Angeles around two in the morning, local television station WAFB / Channel 9 reported.
The police have announced neither the motive nor the suspects in the m*rder. According to local information, many shots were fired on the vehicle. Witnesses told WWL New Orleans TV station that Rice was trying to turn back before the shots were heard.
Baton Rouge mayor Sharon Weston Broom condemned the “pointless violence” that led to Rice’s d*ath in a statement calling for the help of law enforcement, school officials and students to bring the killer or killers to justice.
Rice from Geismar, LA was a senior at Louisiana State University, a Baton Rouge university spokesman said.
The Dutchtown High School graduate was on the high school return court, reports WAFB. Those who knew the victim described her as liked and outgoing.
Rice reportedly worked in an off-campus barbecue diner called The Shed, which is partly owned by her family. One co-owner called Rice’s d*ath “simply devastating” and said the staff were crying over the tragic shooting.
WWL-TV was told that Rice was preparing to graduate and start an internship.
Baton Rouge is the capital of Bayou State. It is home to approximately 230,000 people.
BRProud.pl reported in early 2022 that the city has experienced a surge in crime over the past few years. LSU sociology professor Ed Shihadeh reportedly blamed the crime problems on “scotomas,” who he said have no “institutional attachments, no ties to any institutions in our society.”
