Memorial event and funeral scheduled for teen murder victim

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - The family of Elizabeth Ennen, 15, has set a funeral date and we're told that is open to the public.  The funeral is Friday 10:30 a.m. at Sanders Funeral Home, 1420 Main Street in Lubbock. Entombment will follow at Peaceful Gardens Mausoleum in Woodrow, TX.

At the same time, a fund has been set up for the Ennen family at American State Bank.  There will also be a student-led candlelight vigil Thursday night 6:30 PM at the flag pole at Monterey High school.

Ennen's body was found Monday night near Shallowater.  Her death is now classified as a murder, and the suspect in her case was charged with kidnapping last week before her body was found.  Updated charges are likely, officials have said.

Elizabeth was born on May 17, 1995 at the University Medical Center in Lubbock, TX. She attended Lubbock Schools where she was involved with dance at O.L. Slaton Middle School and was a current sophomore at Monterey High School. Beth had a beautiful voice and was a member of the Choir at Monterey. Elizabeth was a member of Faith Tabernacle Church.

Survivors include her mother, Virginia Ennen; her brothers, Kevin and Nicholas Ennen; father, Kenneth Ennen; half-siblings, Michael and Mariah Ennen; multiple aunts, uncles, cousins, friends and loved ones.

Her family wishes to express their appreciation for the community support and help received in bringing Elizabeth Home.
