Jessica Faulkner remembered

Jessica Faulkner, or Jessie as her friends and family called her, was a daughter, an older sister, a loving friend and a dedicated student.

Jessie was an anthropology student at UNCW.  The 18- year-old was said to be genuine, quiet and extremely family oriented.

She leaves behind her two younger sisters and loving parents who reside in Cary, North Carolina.

Her professors say she enjoyed writing about those closest to her. She was signed up to take a trip this summer to Belize with her accused killer, Curtis Dixon, and about 15 other classmates, as well as a professor.

Relatives say Jessie was really looking forward to her return home. They say she was supposed to return to Cary Wednesday after her exams.
