Police have released few details about the incident, stating only that the victims and suspect were homeless, and the trio may have had an argument over a piece of property.

On social media, friends and acquaintances remembered Samples.

"She will be missed. May her beautiful soul rest in peace. The last year and half was one hell of an adventure I will never forget. She always made me feel young everytime we spent time together. I will always love you Candace Samples," one man wrote on Facebook.
