Police informed that last week, the 24-year-old student came out of a Denton bar with Bryant around 11 p.m. Her corpse was discovered the next morning around 6:30 a.m.
“We have video of them at a bar together,” Eberling said.
“And we were able to talk to employees of that bar and they gave us a name of a suspect, and we just followed the trail from there.”
Vandagriff was studying nutrition at at Texas Woman’s University. A statement released by the university says that the murdered girl upheld the spirit of learning and service, which acted as the hallmark of the TWU community. The statement also says that she lived her life with an intense need to aid others through her interest in nutrition.
Vandagriff also worked at Sambuca 360 as a cocktail waitress, said WFAA8.
The most intriguing part of the case was a Twitter post made by someone a day after the body of the girl was found. Another tweet was posted a day before her body was discovered. Police are investigating the tweets.
