Bonnie Lambeth has sorted through hundreds of social media posts written by Sara Blackwood.
She singled out a July 2017 Facebook post where the two friends discussed common misconceptions about vampires.
That’s what I don’t like about current vampire stories, Blackwood wrote in a comment. All they focus on is their physical attributes, there are so many of them so a lot of things are ignored.
Lambeth said these topics were typical of the almost daily online conversations she had with Blackwood since they met in a Facebook group in 2014.
We absolutely loved talking about fairy tales and how people have changed over time, Lambeth said. “We were kind of nerds, I guess.
Although the two never met in person, they developed such a strong online friendship that they were emergency contacts for each other at work, Lambeth said. Lambeth enshrined Blackwood in his will.
Blackwood, 39, was shot and killed on Sunday night in the 2600 block of East Washington Street, in the far east of Indianapolis.
Blackwood’s death marked Indianapolis’ 160th criminal homicide of the year, surpassing the city’s previous record of 159 set in 2018. This number does not include self-defense murders, police shootings, or accidental homicides .
Police did not release any information on possible motives for the shooting and said no suspects had been taken into custody. The incident is under investigation.
Lambeth, 26, described Blackwood as a thoughtful and inquisitive person, politically active online. Blackwood loved nature documentaries and video games. She was adored in the Kroger store where she worked. She had three cats and a happy life with her partner in Indianapolis, Lambeth said.
Blackwood’s partner Avery Ellis Blackwood declined to be interviewed but released a statement.
“Sara was everything to me. She was the best person, and the world is worse without her.”
‘She was online herself’
Although she was shy in person, Blackwood saw the internet as a place she could open up.
She has published articles on struggles at work, struggles with her body image, and frustrations early in her gender transition.
“She was online herself,” said Lambeth, who lives in Austin, Texas.
Blackwood loved the “My Little Pony” television series. She identified with the character Fluttershy because, like Fluttershy, Blackwood was shy in person.
“Everything Sara kept to herself in her real life has been uploaded,” she added. You didn’t know the real Sara unless you were Facebook friends with her.
The couple initially bonded because they both have autism.They were talking about the difficulty of communicating in person with others. Lambeth compared it to a “wall of glass between us and the rest of the world.”
“That kind of loneliness… Sara was kind of like someone on my side of the glass. We hooked up for that,” Lambeth said.
‘My heart is sick’
While Blackwood may have been shy in real life, she made a big impact on those around her.
Dozens of Indianapolis community members shared their memories of Blackwood on Facebook in the days following the herd death.
“It breaks my heart,” wrote one person. “She has always been a very nice person.”
“My heart is sick from this loss,” commented another person on a post announcing Blackwood’s death.
Blackwood worked at a Kroger grocery store on the east side of town before moving to a restaurant in Long John Silver. Many recalled speaking with Blackwood while they were shopping.
Yazmin Corona, a mother of three who lives in the far east of Indianapolis, told IndyStar she will shop at the Kroger when she knows Blackwood is working.
Corona used a lot of coupons. She said Blackwood “was so nice about it.”
“Most of the people at Kroger would give you an ugly face when you started doing coupons,” Corona said. “She did not do it.”
Corona added that when she didn’t have enough money for something, Blackwood would “pay for it”. Blackwood finally left Kroger “that’s where I stopped leaving,” Corona said. She also stopped couponing.
“It’s so hard not to find someone so nice. I feel bad,” Corona added of Blackwood’s death. “She was a great person. I can’t believe someone would do something like that to her.”
Kelly Daniels also shopped at Blackwood’s Kroger. Daniels said there was a point where she couldn’t afford milk or the bow ties her two young daughters loved to put in their hair.
“She decided to buy them for us,” Daniels said of Blackwood. “We couldn’t wait to see her everyday, hear her stories and laugh with my babies.”
Daniels said her 3-year-old daughter loved talking to Blackwood, often turning a 10-minute trip to the grocery store into an hour-long adventure.
“Sara made sure to (always) make my daughters smile,” Daniels told IndyStar. “It’s sad to think that my 3 year old daughter will never see her beautiful friend Kroger again.”
Lambeth, Blackwood’s close friend, still checks Facebook every day.
Although it’s been nearly a week since filming, Blackwood’s posts are still appearing on the Lambeth stream, Blackwood posted a lot over the past weekend.
“I keep thinking, Oh, Sara made a new post,” Lambeth said. “But she didn’t because she died. It really bothers me.”
