(After the memorial service, audience members walked outside and
released pink and purple balloons)


WENATCHEE, Wash. - Nearly 2,000 people turned out for a public memorial service in Wenatchee for a 17-year-old high school student who was killed and left on the bank of the Columbia River.
     
Police say they have no suspects in the slaying of Mackenzie Cowell. There's a $5,800 reward for information.
     
The Rev. Sandy Brown told Thursday's memorial participants they were gathered because someone stole Cowell's life but also to celebrate their memories of her.
     
The service included a drill routine and dance routine by the Apple-Ettes Dance Team from Wenatchee High School. Cowell was a member of that team.
     
Afterward, audience members walked outside and released pink and purple balloons into the air.
     
Cowell was killed after leaving a beauty school class Feb. 9 in Wenatchee. Her body was found Feb. 13 along the river at Crescent Bar.
     
The case is being investigated by a task force of officers from Wenatchee, East Wenatchee, Douglas and Chelan counties, the Washington State Patrol and FBI.
