APPOMATTOX, Va. (WSET)- Friends of a 22-year-old woman found dead in Campbell County are now looking for answers.

Lisa Henderson was reported missing Friday; her body was found Tuesday, April 10.

Her two best friends, Ashley Rothgeb and Taleigha McCoy, say Lisa's death is too much to bear.

"Why would they take such a good, sweet person. She wouldn't hurt nobody," Taleigha said.

Taleigha, Ashley, and Lisa called themselves "The Three Amigos" and were inseparable.

Their friendship lasted for 12 years, dating back to elementary school in Appomattox.

The memories of Lisa are written on their hearts.

"She said, 'If I go before y'all, just know I'll be happy. I'll be happy because I'm with my dad again.' And it's crazy, because, it's like God told her to tell us that," Taleigha said.

Those words give both Taleigha and Ashley strength for the days ahead.

Only one person, Felix Jefferson III, has been charged with being an accessory after the fact of a homicide.

A search warrant, however, alleges Marquie Williams may be connected to Lisa's death.

The Campbell County Sheriff's Office wouldn't confirm or deny any other suspects in the case.

Friends and family will be holding a vigil for Lisa at 7 p.m. Saturday, April 14 at Appomattox County High School.

A GoFundMe has been set up for Lisa, which can be found here.
