Devan was a "great kid" who was always kind and helpful, and who was deeply loved by her children, she said.

Bracci-Colling was unwilling to say more about the bullying, citing concerns around evidence and a desire to see justice served. But a social media post by Devan's mother, from early September, points to an incident when he was allegedly jumped by a group of kids and his bike was stolen.

The GoFundMe campaign launched to help cover his funeral costs, also says Devan "tried to get help with the bullying he was experiencing."

Det.-Sgt. Steven Bereziuk of the Hamilton Police Service said there was a "relationship" between the teen and the accused, but said he couldn't provide more detail because it would "speak to the evidence" of the investigation.

"It's something we continue to investigate right now," Bereziuk explained.

Police have arrested four people. A 14-year-old and 18-year-old are charged with first-degree murder. Two 16-year-olds, a boy and girl, have also been arrested. Police say all four people are either students or past students at the school, which Devan also attended.

The GoFundMe, started by another one of Devan's sisters, describes the teen as her "best friend."

"I don't know how to live without him," it reads.

More than two dozen people gathered around a makeshift memorial outside Devan's house, a few blocks from the school, on Tuesday evening. Music was softly playing and people of a variety of ages stood around a small fire pit. Some held candles. A pair of portraits showing the teen, and surrounded by bouquets, sat near the centre of the group.

Kandace Brenn, who lives near the school, says Selvey would often hang out at her house.

She said he was a sweet, respectful kid, who didn't open up to many people and often wore the hood of his sweatshirt over his head, making it hard to read his face.

"But once he warms up to you it's phenomenal because he just smiles," said Brenn.

"When he smiles you don't take that for granted because he's not a kid who smiles all the time."

Brenn said her niece called her Monday afternoon, asking if she could bring her and her best friend, Devan's girlfriend, to the hospital.

When she picked the girls up outside the school, Brenn said she knew right away something was very wrong. Devan's girlfriend was devastated.

"Her mom was holding her. She just looked like she wanted to collapse, like her world just completely crashed between her feet."

Brenn said she believes bullying may have played a role in the attack, adding she's also aware of the stolen bike incident, which she said left his girlfriend fearing for his safety.

"She felt like she couldn't leave his side for a second."

Devan was never one to pick fights, she said, but he also wasn't afraid to speak up if he needed help.

"He did have a voice and he used it," Brenn added. "Bullying has got to stop."

A candlelight memorial will be held outside the school on Wednesday evening.
