Police say 22-year-old Sparkles Lashayla Lindsey of Austell shot and killed Kilgore outside of a gated apartment complex shortly after 2 a.m. Friday night in what was described as a road rage incident.
Kilgore was a junior majoring in communications at KSU and a former member of the KSU sorority Gamma Phi Beta.
The windows of Johnny’s Steak and Barbecue restaurant in Powder Springs, where Kilgore had worked for nearly three years, were painted with affectionate words Sunday afternoon reading, “RIP. We love and miss you Kim.”
KSU announced this weekend that it would be providing grief counseling services on campus for students who were close with Kilgore, according to Tiffany Capuano, who works at the school.
Connie Parsley Hall posted on the MDJ’s Facebook page Monday, “Kimmie was a very sweet, Christian girl. I’ve known her and her family for nearly 15 years. She in no way deserved to be an anger outlet for anyone.”
Funeral services will be in Dallas, Ga., on Wednesday.
