The remains of a teenage girl who had been missing in Fairfax, Virginia have been found, police said late Sunday.
The girl, identified only as Nabra, reportedly went missing earlier in the same day. A local man, 22-year-old Darwin Martinez Torres, killed the 17-year-old, the police added.
Nabra and her friends had left an event at the All Dulles Area Muslim Society (ADAMS) to go to a 24-hour restaurant near the mosque, and were walking back when they got into an altercation with a motorist, the Washington Post reported.
NBC Washington reported that Fairfax County Police found the remains of a female teenager in a nearby pond, believed to be Nabra.
Fairfax country police public information officer TJ Wright said Sunday that, "there doesn't seem to be any indication" that the murder was a hate crime, although the investigation would provide more information as it proceeds.
Two fundraising campaigns, one through GoFundMe and another through LaunchGood, have raised over $50,000 since the news of Nabra's murder came to light.
A Quran reading is also being organized to honor Nabra across the community.
ADAMS made a statement thanking the community, government officials and interfaith partners, "for their prayers and support during these tough times."
