This is so sad.
18-Year-Old Student Drowns
According to Mail Online
An Indiana family is struggling to understand why a promising 18-year-old student who was bound for college in the fall drove her SUV into a reservoir and drowned.
Authorities do not know what caused Peyton Reikhof to make the fatal decision to drive across 100 feet of backyards and submerge her vehicle in Geist Reservoir in upscale Fishers, Indiana, an Indianapolis suburb.
They fear they may never know. Investigators say Reikhof acted alone, though they are not sure whether she plowed into the water on purpose or whether it was an accident. Foul play is not suspected.
She was found Sunday after her boyfriend called police on Thursday to report that she left his house distressed. He said he was concerned about her well-being, WISH-TV reports.
Reikhof had recently graduated from Hamilton Southeastern High School and was planning to attend the University of Kansas on scholarship in the fall.
Her family is heartbroken and struggling to understand what happened.
‘She was just an amazing girl. She really was. She had so many friends. So active in everything and had an outstanding grade average and had a scholastic scholarship to KU,’ her grandfather Michael Reikhof told WISH-TV.
Prayers to her family.
