ATLANTA (CBS46) -- Dozens gathered at Clark Atlanta University Sunday evening to remember Alexis Crawford. The 21-year-old student was found dead on Friday after being reported missing a week earlier.

"The mood has been very hard," said Levon Campbell, Student Government Association president. "A lot of students have been trying to take into account what happened and just find answers to things we can't find answers to."

Crawford's roommate, 21-year-old Jordyn Jones, and Jones' boyfriend, 21-year-old Barron Brantley, have been charged in her murder. A family spokesman told CBS46 on Sunday that Jones was not only Crawford's roommate, but her friend.

"She not only knew where her roommate was, but she was also instrumental in Alexis' ultimate demise," Markel Hutchins said.

As Crawford's family prepares to bury her, the Clark Atlanta community sent words of encouragement and support.

"Whenever Clark Atlanta University has difficult times, we always come together to uplift one another through these times," Campbell said.

According to Clark Atlanta officials, counselors will remain on campus to help students, if needed.
