Many sources claim that Kostial was shot 8 times, but that is all anyone knows so far. In speculation, many people feel like something may of “went wrong” Friday night in which she was murdered after.

She was last seen by CCTV Friday night at an Oxford bar close to campus. Footage shows her stopping at the door, but not entering the bar.

Her roommates reported her returning to the apartment around midnight and claim they did not hear her leave again.

A report from People suggests that Ally was “dumped” at the lake meaning that she was perhaps killed at another spot.
