"Just seeing her come to work, seeing her after work, we used to hang out all the time after work. I'm just going to miss her as a person, you know? Just having her around," said John Stockman, close friend.

Moultrie's brother also spoke with ABC7 News from Las Vegas. He describes his sister as someone who absolutely loved her family.
