Hundreds of protesters flooded Hong Kong on Friday to mourn the death of a 15-year-old girl.

People gathered in various locations, including Sheung Shui in northern Hong Kong and New Town Plaza Mall, lighting candles next to the pictures of the girl whose naked body was found in the sea on September 22, three days after her disappearance. The information was revealed on Friday.

Mourners wrote on post-it notes, made origami cranes and sang.

Anti-government protesters see the death as suspicious with some reports claiming that police might be connected to it.

Local officials were quoted in media as saying that the investigation didn't find any signs of sexual assault, adding that she also hadn't been arrested during the protests. The cause of the death is still unknown.
