JENNINGS, LA (KPLC) - Family and friends gathered in Jennings Saturday afternoon to say goodbye to the Silverwood teen found dead in Acadia Parish earlier this week.

Services for fifteen year old Kimberly Hollier started at 2 p.m. on Saturday at Semien-Lewis Mortuary in Jennings.

Authorities found Hollier's body underneath the Mermentau River Bridge on the morning of October 10th.

Classmates and friends say Hollier was a straight A student, and they are still waiting for answers as to what really happened to their friend Kimberly.

"She was energetic and fun to be around," said her friend Tyler Wallace. "She lit up a whole room when she came in."

"It just shocked," said Meagan Bertrand, a friend of Kimberly. "I didn't think something like that could happen to her."

"It will give me peace at heart to know what really happened to her," said Brittany Guidry, a friend of Kimberly.

While it is still early in the investigation, Acadia Parish Sheriff's Office said alcohol is believed to have been involved in her death.

Autopsy results have not yet been released.
