Riverhead High School sophomore Amaya Coach knew Danielle Lawrence since the third grade.
On Monday, Amaya broke down in front of a group of about 70 people and told them how much she loved her friend, who was killed the night before in an apparent double-murder suicide.
“She shouldn’t have died the way she did,” Amaya said, after placing a small stuffed teddy bear in the snow.
