OLATHE, Kan. - Friends and family of an Emporia State University student who was found dead in her sorority home gathered Monday night for a prayer vigil.
Erika Jaremko, 19, was found dead inside the Sigma Sigma Sigma house several days ago. Family members told FOX 4 on Monday they still don't know the cause of their daughter's death. Police said no foul play is suspected.
"The one thing that she never doubted was that she was a daddy's girl," said Mike Jaremko, Erika's father. "Daddy loved her with all of his heart, there wasn't a depth in my heart that didn't love her."
The ESU sophomore was studying psychology and elementary education. Family said she wanted to be a first grade teacher.
Nearly 100 people came out to Evangelistic Center Church in Olathe on Monday for the vigil.
"I didn't even know the lives that she has impacted, I had no idea how many people loved my baby so much," said Stephanie Post, the victim's mother.
A member of tri-sig told FOX 4 sorority members have been directed not to talk to the media about their sister's death.
A GoFundMe.com account was created by family to help raise funeral funds. They told FOX 4 whatever money is leftover will go to Sigma Sigma Sigma.
The visitation is set for 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 17 at McGilley & Fry Funeral Home. The funeral is set for Thursday, Feb. 18 at Evangelistic Center in Olathe.
