He says he knows the suspect, david sparks.
They went to school together and later worked together.
He says he never expected to know someone who would be accused of being involved with something like this.
"i would never thought it from the beginning that it would've came to this."
C family and friends of savannah spurlock are also reacting and hurting.
For months, they've been searching for their loved one - wishing she could just come home.
"they're just all devastated.
They don't have any words at this point."
"i guess nothing shocks you anymore."
"hopefully the truth will eventually come out, which is not going to make it easier by any means, but at least you'll know and justice will be served."
Many people have been following the facebook page dedicated to spurlock.
In a live video - the aunt shared they would be taking down the page on saturday so the family can grieve privately.
