(Scroll down for video) A community was on edge over the death of a young girl who was brutally murdered.

However, they were even more stunned when they learned that police arrested a 15-year-old boy over her death.

Police in Thornton, Colorado, were called to a home after 10-year-old Kiaya Campbell went missing.

Kiaya Campbell was an outgoing and well-liked girl, who had her own YouTube channel, where she posted videos, including some of her singing and of the way she got her brother back after he pranked her.

Sadly, her life was cut short and she was found face down in a grassy area not far from her home.

Kiaya’s father said that she was walking to a nearby shopping center with his girlfriend’s 15-year-old son at about 8:00 p.m.

However, when the 15-year-old boy came home, the girl was not with him. He told her father and his mother that he and Kiaya got separated when it began raining.

The 10-year-old girl was reported missing, and when her body was found, police arrested a 15-year-old boy.

Police did not yet release the name of the suspect and they refused to say whether the 15-year-old boy who was arrested is the son of her father’s girlfriend.
