DALLAS -- It's the question everyone in East Dallas is asking, who killed 18-year-old Zoe Hastings?

On Thursday evening, family and friends who knew the recent Booker T. Washington High School graduate gathered to canvas the field where Zoe was found dead Monday morning.

"There has to be some answers out there, and I think bringing the community together is the best way to figure out what happened," said Debbie Van Zant.

This community was prepared to get the word out.

"We're going back to our neighborhood and we're passing out flyers, going door to door, and just letting the community know that anything they can think of would help," said Marie St. Hilaire.

Cops said Zoe stopped at a Walgreens Sunday evening to use the Redbox.

She then headed to her church, but she never made it. Cops don't know what happened during that seven-minute drive. She was found dead Monday morning in a creek bed less than half a mile away.

Cops continue to search for anyone who might have seen Zoe or spotted her in the white minivan she was driving.

Meanwhile, her community is pouring out its support. Online fundraising efforts have generated over $50,000 for the Hastings family and there's a $10,000 reward for information that leads to Zoe's killer.

"Nothing is insignificant in this case, so please we need the communities assistance in solving this heinous crime,” said Sgt. Judge with the Dallas Police Department.
