That left a shaken community and campus wondering: Who killed the vivacious young woman? Police now have an answer: They’ve arrested a registered sex offender named Brian Lee Golsby, and they say they believe the attack was random.
“Of all the people in this world we find ourselves asking why her?” wrote one friend on a GoFundMe site established to help Tokes’ family.
