After promotion Kajavia Globe wrote goodbye at desk before her murder

The former co-workers of Kajavia Globe turned her desk into a shrine and held a vigil Friday.

As the search continues for her killer, a vigil is planned this weekend for a woman found murdered on Detroit's west side.

A gathering of hope in a time of darkness Friday night for the family of Kajavia Globe.  The 24-year-old was found dead behind a vacant home Monday night.

It's just horrible," said co-worker Stanetta Jones. "But we're going to get through this together."

Globe worked the early shift at Minacs on 12 Mile in Farmington Hills. Her desk has now turned into a memorial and sits empty. Globe, who was promoted Friday, was last seen that day writing "Good bye," on her desk.

"I interviewed her and personally hired her for the new position," said co-worker Lisa. "She was a breath of fresh air, very positive and happy."

Coworkers and friends describing Kajavia, say the same.

"Funny, a burst of energy," Jones said. "She was a little fireball. Her personality was always smiling, always happy."

Friends and even those who never met the smiling young woman attended a vigil at Minacs Friday night with Kajavia's heartbroken family.

"Can you imagine not having justice served for your child," said organizer Dana Harris.

Detroit police say the cause of Kajavia's death has not yet been determined with no signs of trauma to her body. Sources say toxicology results are pending as the person seen in a skull mask driving her car, took money out of her bank account, and is still out there.

What is it coming to when you could just kill someone like that for $500?" said Kiki Kerr, one of the organizers of the vigil.

A march for justice, peace and protection is planned for Saturday in Kajavia's honor. It is scheduled for 4 p.m. Saturday at Seven Mile and Evergreen. Those attending are asked to where red, or Kajavia's favorite color, purple.
