The family of Louisa Vesterager Jespersen, killed near Imlil in Morocco, will bury the 24-year-old on Saturday, January 12.
Louisa’s family commented on the tragedy with deep sorrow, saying that Louisa was taken from them in an inhuman way in the Atlas Mountains.
“I long to see you – I long to hear your voice. Death took you from me, and emptiness is all there is left behind. Rest in peace our sweet angel, you will always be in our heart. Hugs, mother and siblings,” the family’s announcement read.
Louisa was on vacation in Morocco with her Norwegian friend Maren Ueland. They camped between Imlil and Mount Toubkal in an isolated place overnight.
The two tourists were found dead, one decapitated and one with a slashed throat, the next morning, December 17.
Moroccan police arrested 23 individuals for being directly or indirectly involved in the murder.
On Monday, January 7, students at Bo University in Norway gathered to pay homage to the two Scandinavian tourists. Their schoolmates observed two minutes of silence.
