Almost 3 000 people attended a silent vigil on Tuesday evening where 16-year-old Franziska Blöchliger was murdered in Tokai Forest.
The teen's body was discovered in Dennendal Road in Tokai just two hours after she was reported missing during a run on Monday afternoon.
EWN's Monique Mortlock attended the silent vigil and reflected on the mood at the gathering as well as the progress of the police investigation.

Everyone joined together. Some were holding flowers in their hands and placing them along the fence with messages of support.— Monique Mortlock, EWN reporter
