Family members said the high school senior was studying to get her associate’s degree and was looking forward to college.

“She was such a bright light. She was such a shining star,” one of her teachers said, according to FOX 4.

Detectives caught Bausby on surveillance video and DNA evidence linked him to the crime.

“We began to suspect, somethings not right, you know something,” Daizsa’s aunt told FOX 4. “That was the hardest thing to deal with, just to be in Daizsa’s shoes, to see her own father take advantage of her, she was helpless.”

Her family said she was trying to help her father stop using drugs.
