Last Tuesday, 24-year-old Jacqueline Vandagriff was seen leaving Shots and Crafts in Denton's Fry Street bar district with a man. That was the last time she was seen alive.

The man she was leaving the bar with, 30-year-old Charles Dean Bryant, had been previously accused of stalking his ex-girlfriend. His former lover was so bothered by his repeated acts of harassment that she called the police on him. A judge later issued a protective order against the stalker.

Vandagriff's body was found the next day, dismembered and burned in a park in Grapevine, Tex., several miles away from the bar where she was last seen alive. A witness later linked Bryant to the murder, after he was seen standing by the fire and driving away in an SUV.

What was rather unusual, however, is that a day after Vandagriff was found dead, a tweet appeared on her personal Twitter account. The message was very brief, but it raised numerous questions.

Investigators have stated that Vandagriff's phone was traced in the vicinity of Bryant's house. Her purse has also been found in the accused stalker's trash. Authorities are also investigating if Vandagriff and Bryant knew each other prior to their meeting in the bar.

Vandagriff's death has sparked an outpouring of sympathy for the slain girl and her family on social media. One of her friends, Jackie Tox, has set up a GoFundMe page to help Vandagriff's family pay for her funeral.

"As you have all found out, Jackie was killed in a horrific and unexpected event on September 14, 2016. This disgusting act is uncalled for and justice will be served. She had a passion like no other and a heart as pure as an angel. Her drive inspired me to be better every day. She was a nutrition major at Texas Women's University as well as a Paul Mitchell School graduate," Tox wrote.

"She wanted to make people the best they could be, a trait she had since the day we met in 2006. She always picked up your phone call no matter what time it was, she would lift you up when you would feel the lowest. Her spirit was one of a kind. One that will be remembered forever. That little strawberry redhead girl will always be in our hearts."

So far, less than 24 hours since the page was set up, 144 people have donated and raised $4,345 of the fundraiser's $5,000 goal.
