The rising travel blogger's body was discovered nearly one year ago in Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming where she had been camping with her fiancé Brian Laundrie. Her death was quickly ruled a homicide by means of manual strangulation.

"I don’t know who wrote this, but wow, isn’t this the #truth," Nichole Schmidt captioned a picture of a quote on the grief experienced following the murder of a loved one. "So sorry to all who have had to endure this pain and daily struggle. I’m sending you all love, strength and good vibes, as you have done for me."

"Although the struggle with grief is part of every death, murder is darker than death, and so is the road to surviving and healing in the aftermath," the passage read.

"Murder devours innocent lives with a cruelty that is absent of reason, absent of values, and absent of compassion. Murder breaks all the sacred rules, knows no fairness, and can never be undone or compensated," it continued. "Murder drives even the most loving and compassionate people to the edge of that fine line that separates our respect for life."

"The aftermath of murder takes us straight through hell where we stand eye-to-eye with the evil that hides behind human faces, and what we do in the face of that evil defines what lies behind our own face," the message concluded. "The aftermath of the murder is nothing less than a full-blown emotional and spiritual struggle."
