SALT LAKE CITY — Family, friends and coworkers gathered Sunday to honor a young Utah woman who police say was murdered by her ex-boyfriend.

Brooklyn Tyree, a 23-year-old mother, was found dead in the Five Mile Pass area of Tooele County on May 6.

Police said 28-year-old Brandon Zipperle, who was also the father of Tyree's 7-month-old son, admitted to shooting and killing her.

The Fear Factory, a popular where Tyree had worked for several years, invited people to come and honor her life.

"She worked here for several years, and as part of the 'Fear Family,' we call it... we are here to support her family and to be a part in this and celebrate her life," co-owner Rob Dunfield said. "She obviously had a lot of people that loved her and cared about her."

Zipperle was arrested on suspicion of murder and obstruction of justice.

A GoFundMe campaign has been set up for Tyree's family, and the funds will help "pursue justice for Brook" and provide necessities for the 7-month-old son she leaves behind.
