“Mikayla Miller was a cherished daughter, friend, school mate and team member, and her future held so much potential. She deserved to be safe and to follow her dreams. I am devastated by her tragic death, and have held her mother, friends, family and loved ones in my heart since hearing the news. I understand that a lack of answers about her case is distressing, especially in a time of grieving, and I join the family and the community in support of a thorough and transparent investigation. I plan to attend the vigil tomorrow, and we should all remember and honor Mikayla’s life,” said Senate President Karen Spilka on Wednesday.
