Devin Harvey, Autumn Harvey’s cousin, told WJZ that he last saw his cousin at another family member’s home enjoying the pool and a meal.

He described Autumn as a kind person with an infectious laugh. “She was a little bit shy, but once you got to know her and break [her] out of her shell, she was just awesome,” Devin Harvey said.

The 29-year-old moved in with her grandmother after her grandfather died. Devin Harvey described Sellers as a giving person who was devoted to her community and church.

“She was an awesome person,” Devin Harvey said. “[She would] give you the shirt off her back. They were very close. Autumn wanted to stay here with her grandmother because she didn’t want her to be alone.”
