LINCOLN COUNTY, GA (WFXG) -

Students at Cross Creek High School put together a vigil for Nicholas Dunn, the teenager who was found dead in the woods on Tuesday.

Students are handling Dunn's death the best way they know how. Dunn was loved by many, and his friends said he'll definitely be missed.

More than 50 students headed out to Diamond Lakes Park Thursday night to pay their respects to their friend.

JerQuetta Flournay said she saw Nunn before the game but never imagined that being her last time seeing him. She said she considered Nunn a brother.

"It was like right before we marched down to the field," Flournay said. "Like he was with my brother, and I was like, 'I'll see y'all later.' I never knew that it would be the last time I seen him, so it kind of hit me hard. He was a good person, always kept himself up to par and just somebody you always want to be around." 

The coroner's office is still waiting to receive autopsy and toxicology results. Officials said the results could take up to six weeks to get back.

The school is planning to do something in memory of Dunn within the next couple of days.
