Jurate Matulioniene, a family friend and chairwoman of the Boston Lithuanian Community, said: “Lilia was a beautiful angel, she was quiet and loved dancing. THe family used to come to all of our community events and they would always stay late to help clear up.
“I have spoken to the mum and asked for her account details because we want to do a fundraiser, but she would not accept it.”
Photographs and videos posted on social media by Ms Savicke before her daughter’s death show a bright, happy looking girl who enjoyed dancing, swimming, boating trips, and playing with her little sister.
A bouquet of red roses laid at the scene of her killing carried a condolence card which read: “So sorry this cruel world has taken your life, beautiful girl. May you be in the arms of the angels.”
