A Michigan teen who was found dead last month was scheduled to testify against her alleged rapist in court later this year.

Mujey Dumbuya, 16, was last seen alive leaving her home to catch the bus to school on Jan. 24. When her family learned she never made it to school, they reported her missing, CBS reports.

Four days later, Dumbuya’s body was found by a couple in Kalamazoo, 50 miles away from her high school near Grand Rapids. Although authorities have not released how Dumbuya died, her family believes she was targeted, according to CBS.
