The following are some tributes posted on social media to honor the life and the legacy of the deceased.
Can we give her family/friends/ community time to mourn? This doesn’t feel like “journalism”, this feels panic-inducing and seems unproductive. Those affected are fully aware of the awful circumstances and this article doesn’t do anything to ease the pain this brings https://t.co/zo7DQJThwP

This story is the very definition of news: Something that isn’t supposed to happen happened. The public MUST know this happened. And before you get mad at me, I graduated from the J-School in 1990, so it’s my old neighborhood.

#TessaMajors was murdered while walking her parents/grandmother say she was in the wrong&shouldn’t have been there. Tessa wasnt asking to be stabbed in the face&stomach.
Definitely wasnt supposed to know that another person, a 16 year old at that was supposed to rob and kill her pic.twitter.com/r0NR7qSUrb
